Hey… remember when “that guy” left town for a team we all f’ing hate? Remember how pissed you were? Now imagine KG’s reaction. Need help? Here’s what he said about it today.
Safe to say KG wasn’t thrilled with Ray’s decision. Remember, the Ray Allen trade is the one the preceded the Garnett trade, and it was the move that signaled to KG the Celtics were serious about going from doormat to instant contender.
The best part about this is the intensity with which KG pursues everything. You are either with him, or against him. And right now, Ray is against him… and that’s that. KG has new teammates now. And if you want to go chase your ring somewhere else… that’s fine. But now you’re an obstacle, Ray Allen… and KG doesn’t like obstacles.
On a related note… I’m so happy to see these guys back.
