Ahh… so the grass isn’t greener in South Beach.
Can Ray Allen really come back, after all the stories about his rifts with Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett and Celtics management?
Would the fans welcome him back?
(h/t FL Celts Fan)
Albeit after a week or so of ranting and raving, C’s fans would definitely welcome Ray back (at the right price, of course).
Nope, if you want him back clearly you haven’t seen him in the playoffs. And this is on a team with Lebron feeding you the ball.
All I have to say is LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
Nice try, Ray.
No, seriously. Nice try Ray Ray. We know how to forgive.
I would love to have Ray back for one last year/playoff run. I think he would be able to handle the media’s questions well and bury the hatchet with KG. They both want another ring and to retire as Celtics. If the money is there I say sign him
What exactly does Ray Allen offer at this point in his career that we can’t get elsewhere?
Not much. But if he does come back, at least he knows the system. I still don’t understand why new guys struggle to learn and adapt to the system.
I’d take traitor Ray back. I knew he wouldn’t like it in Miami. As long as he doesn’t handle the ball and just shoot and release.
First, there wouldn’t be much room for him unless Danny unloads some of the guards that are currently on the roster. Second, many Celtics fans view how Ray left as incorrigible. I don’t think the fans would welcome Ray back with open arms.
Personally, I don’t think he alleviates any of the C’s problems. But if he came back at a cheap price and bench role I guess I wouldn’t mind. Just thinking about how inconsistent Jason Terry’s shooting was this season makes me slightly warm to bringing Ray back.
Exactly what Boston needs….more small players that are AARP eligible!!
The fact is: Ray had a good year and we missed his shooting.
Having said that, EFF NO! He had his chance to retire as a Celtic and decided to go ring-chasing with the enemy. Ray is delusional if he thinks he’s beloved to Boston fans. Johnny Damon would be more welcome.
Ray had a great year last year too…and the postseason came and despite his playing we still missed his shooting then. This year, same thing. He’s too old to last all the way to the finals. If Ray Allen is on a NBA team next year the coach’s best bet would be to rest him ALL THE WAY until February, but nobody does that.
That’s the thing, he is so old now that even if we followed your plan of resting him till February, we don’t know what he will have left. We might not be rewarded with his usual great shooting like we would expect from a well rested Ray Allen.
He hasn’t had a good year OVERALL if you factor in the playoffs. He had 2 great games in the playoffs (20+ points with extremely good efficiency) and 2 pretty good games (16 points good efficiency, 20 points mediocre efficiency) out of 15 games. playoff FG% for this season is 38%. I was never that pissed at him for leaving (we needed younger guards and Miami seemed like a perfect fit for Ray) but we definitely do not need him back, Ray is even older and his passing and defense have gotten even worse than last season. His shooting is still good but his age and other liabilities definitely cancel it out and more.
If the Heat lose tonight, that team is gonna blow up. I for one will thoroughly enjoy the fireworks
I think the most upvotes I’ve seen on a comment on this blog is 12…where the hell did 60 come from!?
Lol people hate the Heat I guess. I don’t think the Heat will lose but if they do I too would enjoy it (would be hilarious).
Woah its up to 136 epic….this must be why Stern loves the Heat, I mean look at what they can do to a Celtics blog wow
maybe for veteran minimum, but i dont think i want him back, he’s the douche to lebrons vgina.
Ray Allen is a band wagon, no loyalty at all, so i wont be surprised if C’s dont welcome him back
Boston suck with or without ray allen!!!
THIS WAS HIS PLAN ALL ALONG INFILTRATE THE LEBRONS AND FIND THEIR WEAKNESSES THEN COME BACK N TELL US THE NBA IS A CHECKERS BOARD BUT HOMIE RAY ALLEN IS PLAYIN CHESS!!!!!
This isn’t Game of Thrones, but would be so cool if Rayray did a Lannister.
hmmm…this is hard to believe…plus you made your bed Ray.
Oh right, because NBA on NBC Boston has been SO accurate with their “rumors and sources” before. (Sarcasm)
I want to go back to Rachel Adams, too, but…she doesn’t know me.
How is he at folding laundry?
he would be the best shooter on the team by far
As much as I hated him for leaving and told my self that I would never want / like him again, I would love for him to come back in a bench role, and I will amost completely forgive him.
I wonder if this is how his wife thinks & feels?
Hahaha yes! This makes me feel good inside. Now if the Heat will just implode tonight maybe my nuts will stop tingling from when Ray kicked them last summer!
We do need shooting but no. We need to get younger do not take a step backwards. Ray is my all time favorite player but no. You moved on ray. We did too.
I for one am happy to hear this the day of the Heats most important day of the year . Please let this be a distraction to Miami .
Sign him and trade him to the grizzlies.
Lol don’t give him a no trade clause and trade Ray at the deadline that would be HILARIOUS. I don’t think Ray was wrong for being mad at Danny (Danny tries to trade everybody in every scenario) but that would be so hilarious we gotta do this.
I won’t be popular for this but yes, I would take him back. He would bring great spacing off of the bench. We could have used him this year too.
They can keep him. Too late Ray Ray
[Mckayla Maroney face]
YES, We would greatly welcome his 3-point shooting. Not letting him back is like LeBron wanting to go back to cleveland then all cavs fans get pissed… WE WANT YOU BACK RAY!
No we don’t, Ray
Ray Allen can rot in hell.
Bring Ray back and let’s win another title!!!
who would you choose? Ray Allen or Jason Terry? lol
