I will never forgive Ray honeslty. Yes he will always be a Celtic, but a true Celtic? That's for a later discussion when he retires.I'm over Ray, but it wasn't supposed to end this way.
"One day when it’s all said and done, I’m sure we’ll talk about it off to the side,” Pierce said when asked if he was capable of forgiving Allen for joining the Celtics’ bitterest conference rival. “But not right now.”
Pierce has this much in common with Celtics fans. He still can’t conceive of Allen’s decision.
“It definitely hurt me,” Pierce said. “Say we play the Lakers for the championship, and two years later I go and sign with the Lakers. That’s the equivalent of what he did.”
Allen, told of Pierce’s comments last night, quietly nodded.
“I miss playing with Paul, and being his teammate,” he said. “There’s a lot of sentimentality from me being there and walking with those guys. That doesn’t change. I wouldn’t take that away from him. I respect him feeling that way. Those feelings are justified. I’m not on his team anymore, I’m not helping them win.
“His feelings are hurt, but he knows, he understands. He and I can look at each other and exchange a glance, because he knows what I had to do. He knows.”
Ray went to the enemy nd that's the problem with this entire thing. It's like Paul going to the Lakers, he's right on that. I'm sure most fans are over Ray, and their okay with it now. For me Ray is nothing to me. Some of it has to do with his issues with Rondo. Ray wasn't thrilled that Rondo was the guy now, and Ray's ego was bigger then he said it was.
