Ray Allen was unhappy about Doc
« on: February 14, 2013, 07:45:26 PM »
What a diva

Well according to the Daily News, one of Allen’s gripes about his time in Boston was that he was fourth in Coach Doc Rivers’ pecking order, behind Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo. The Celtics were not happy that Allen defected to the rival Heat last summer as a free agent, while by the end of his time in Boston, Allen told close allies that he felt he ran fourth on Doc Rivers’ list of favorites, after Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo.”

Allen really comes off very un-classy with comments such as these.

Doc is going to do whats best for the team, and not any individual player...maybe its because Allen's game has declined the most between those 3, and Rondo's became better.

I mean..Pierce/KG are still all-star calibar players in this league and can carry a team

Allen is a 3-point gunner off the heats bench...

Being the fourth gun in Miami is just so much better.

Not a surprise. Ray had issues with Glen Robinson and George Karl in Milwaukee.

I don't consider the Daily News as particularly authoritative, but a quote is a quote.

Ray Allen is a diva-jerk. I continue to be so disappointed in him because I really though he was a classy guy but boy was I WRONG.

I am NOT appreciative of what he did while here. He though of himself as a hired gun not a team player.

If he went somewhere for more money I would be okay with that.

If he went somewhere to be closer to his family I would be okay with that.

If he went somewhere to be closer to a doctor for his kid, I would be okay with that.

It disgusts me to see Flo in a Heat jersey.

Even with all of that., I might be okay with what he did if he would just keep his trap shut, or at least speak of his former teammates and management in respectful terms.

Ray, you are likely going to win another championship.  Good for you, diva-jerk.

But no, he has shown none of the qualities that would get me on his side of what happened.

Battier and Chalmers might have something to say about being fourth. I get that Allen has value as a great three point shooter to space the floor, but Battier provides excellent defense and Chalmers is shooting about the same percentage from three and is certainly more of a playmaker.

No matter what, I think it was pretty crappy how the whole thing went down and I am very disappointed that Allen chose to chase a ring in Miami rather have his number retired in the rafters.

but he thinks its justified now. Before, he didnt think it was justified for doc to put rondo over him. He thought he was better than rondo.

Well, he's still worse or at the same level as Mario Chalmers and Shane Battier and Mike Miller >_<

Why does he still yap about the Cs?

Is it just that he still sees the Cs as a tight knit brotherhood where he is now just an outsider trying to still be relevant to the Cs?

To be unbiased, you'll have to blame the reporters...
