"IN RONDO WE TRUST"

Celtics Blog Post New Entry

Ray has made Ainge the good guy

Posted by shawn cassidy on July 7, 2012 at 1:50 PM



Before Ray decided to walk away from the Celtics. You could take a pick of why Ray may leave. It could have been playing time, or a starting role, and maybe it could have been his issue with Rondo. But it always came back to Ainge. Ray seemed hurt by the trade attempts from the past three years. Basically since the Celtics lost to the Magic in 2009. It seemed like Ray was just messing around with the Heat, and at the end of the day. It seemed like Ray would return to the Celtics.



It seemed like Danny was saying sorry, when he offered Ray a no  trade clause. That should have been enough for Ray to say. Okay Danny, I forgive you, and lets move on, and let me retire as a Celtic. But now Ainge looks like the good guy, and he backed off blowing up the core four, and he played it smart for the past year. Ray looks like the ass, and the ego driven diva. Ainge spoke about the roster spot to fill after Ray's departure.

 But  Danny Ainge said Saturday he would not comment on the departure of Ray Allen to the Miami Heat until the league's moratorium on signing free agents ends July 11.



"Obviously we need to fill the void, we need another shooting guard, of course," he said. "There are a lot of good players left. We're limited to what we can do with the biannual exception we need to wait and see."

"We have been in contact with the whole list of guys you would look at," Ainge said. "I don't want to mention names but we have been in contact with them. We'll continue to find the best player we can."



Can't wait to see the next move by Ainge.

That's what irks me the most about this. Danny finally seemed to be coming to his senses. FINALLY. And now Allen chooses to punish him for his past wicked ways? Come on, Ray! Yes, Danny went off the deep end, got caught up in trade mania, but is it too much to give the man a break when he seems to be learning from his wicked ways? Isn't that precisely when we SHOULD give him a break?

Sadly, I think Allen got taken in by the Master Manipulator, Pat Riley.

Your right,and why couldn't Ray see right through that? Also Ainge had turned some kind of corner.

I think it's a mid-life crisis, honestly. It's awful hard to see straight when you are in the midst of that kind of thing.

I'm excited for Avery- that kid made me eat some serious humble pie last year. I thought we needed to trade him. With the way his confidence grew, he is going to be able to shoot even better next year. In terms of Danny looking for another shooting guard, probably a good idea. Mickael was awesome on defense, but his "feast or famine" shooting is a concern. At the point guard position, I'm looking forward to seeing what E'Twaun Moore will do. He was a cool cat last year for a rookie. I'm not as impressed with Keyon, but you guys have cited how important he is in the locker room. His shot is just down right scary!! I never know if it'll go in or not! :)

Not getting along with Rondo? There are others in the past Ray hasn't gotten along with (David West, Kobe). Doesn't want to hear his name mentioned in trades? (Milwaukee and Seattle) Thinks he should have a lot more pay than what the team is offering? History of injuries? Not being respected? None of this is new with Ray. Try the 3 links below and draw your own conclusions.
I saw that Ray wants to go into politics when his playing days are over. What we know about politicians is that they are careful to cultivate a public persona, make everyone like them, but behind the scenes be ruthless and have a lot of skeletons in the closet.
This is the only post or reply that I will make on Ray. If he did do this to "stick it" to the Celts, then every word spent on it just means he won. I say let's move on and not give him the satisfaction of thinking he upset us.
