Celtics Morning Joe: "He should be treated like a king"

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 27, 2013 at 6:00 AM

"I hope Ray is treated like a king in his return," said Doc Rivers. "We shouldn't focus on why he left or where he went. We should embrace and celebrate what he did for us when he was a Celtic. And was a great Celtics."

Will the Celtics organization celebrate Ray with a tribute video like they have for others who've departed. The bigger question? Will the fans boo, or cheer. I think it will be a mix throughout the Garden. In my other Ray post I was on the fence about Ray. I honestly miss him. He did a lot for the team. But like I said I didn't like what he became, and I didn't like they way he departed.

"Everywhere you go when you're on the road you're going to get booed anyway," Allen said. "I expect that because I'm on the other team now."

"We've been in multiple trade scenarios for the past two years," Allen said. "It's almost been a sense of disregard from my place wanting me in this situation and then coming into free agency.

"They prioritized who they wanted to sign and then they came to me matter of factly. Then you tell me I'm going to come off the bench and take less minutes."

Added Allen, "When you put me in the situation where you're not giving me any understanding or explanation of where the team is moving and what direction you're going in, then you're building around in another direction… At the end of the day whether it makes sense to you or not, you're not showing me that you really need me back or want me back."


Ray's crybaby ego story is the same as the day he left. I do understand his thoughts about the potential trades he faced on a yearly basis. Shame on Danny, but I guess it's apart of NBA basketball.

The more he talks, the less I can stand him!!
What he expected? to have a team built around him at the age of 38?
The best thing the Celtics could do was build around Rondo!! He could have been great coming off the bench and hit important shots down the stretch for our team. He just couldn't accept that he is no more 25 years old.
They first signed everybody else and then called him because they expected to have him back maybe, as he declared that he is a true Celtic.
I'm really sick of Ray Allen.
They can celebrate him with the video tribute like they did with other players, because he helped us win a championship, but if I were at the Garden today, I'd boo him for sure!!

The thing is, I understand some of Allen's grievances. I've criticized Danny harshly for his trading pracitices, and rightly, I think. That doesn't justify what he did. He had every right to do what he did. We have every right to criticize it harshly.
