Your Morning Dump… Where some kids broke into Ray Allen’s house

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Police said Allen’s wife Shannon Walker Allen was asleep in her bedroom with her children when heard noises and saw the light’s from what is believed to be the suspects’ flashlights.

Police said Mrs. Allen shouted out “What the (expletive) are you doing in my house?” Immediately she heard one of the women say “Oh my God.”  Police said the group of young adults believed to be in their early 20s then ran out of the house laughing.

According to detectives, the suspects believed the home was empty and wanted to see what Ray Allen’s home looked like after they left a house party next door around 2:30 a.m. Detectives said the suspects broke into the home through a door that had a faulty lock. They found the group at another home shortly after.

First, I’m glad his family is OK and this was just a bunch of drunk kids trying to get a thrill by checking out what they thought was an abandoned mansion.


Ray Allen has made hundreds of millions of dollars in his life.  He’s not the superstar he used to be, but he’s still pretty recognizable, especially in Miami where he’s hit a few big shots over the past few years.

You’d think he would rely on more than a deadbolt to keep his family safe.

No security system?  No dogs roaming the house ready to pounce on an unsuspecting intruder?  Nothing?

“Oh, yeah, Shannon… remember, the side door can’t lock and we’re in Miami, a town synonymous with cocaine and drug dealers.  If anyone happens to come in, just swear at them and that should work!” 

Ray Allen’s defense is once again non-existent.

Page 2:  Mike Gorman answers fans’ questions

Question from Adam Mayfield: Hey Mike, obviously the roster could change more before season’s start, but as of now, who is your favorite new addidtion? #CelticsTalk
Mike Gorman: I’m intrigued with Marcus Smart…. you don’t find many players in the NBA who want to defend above all else….Marcus can be a game changer on that end of the floor and I think he will fast become a fan favorite in Boston…He and Avery Bradley are going to give opposing guards fits.

Question from Costa: How many wins do you think Boston Celtics will get this season?
MG: 30-35

Question from Alex: Talking about Rondo, do you think Rajon will still be a Celtic after the trade deadline?
MG: I think that will depend upon the first 3 and 1/2 months of the season….I’m a Rondo guy so I hope the answer to your question is yes.

CSNNE:  Mike Gorman live chat transcript

Just Mike giving his opinions on a few things after taking a few minutes to take questions.  We’ll have him on Celtics Stuff Live once training camp resumes and he gets a look at the guys.

And Finally…

The NBA put out its version of the top 10 plays from last season.

#1 is obvious.  I’m surprised how much Jordan Crawford made it in.

    I feel bad for Ray. Good thing it was just a group of dumb drunk teens or it could’ve been a different headline.

    • Fitzy

      ie: Sean Taylor

    • LA Flake

      I don’t believe it was just a group of stupid drunk teens doing stupid stuff. I believe it was a group of stupid teens doing malicious stuff on purpose that had life or death consequences. I know that if a few teens broke into my house late at night, drunk or drugged out, they’re gonna be carried out in body bags. Every one of them. You just don’t f*ck with a man’s property or his family. Uh uh. NO.

  • Curt Hays

    Jordan, not Jamal, but yeah…good plays by Steez.

    I forgot Jeff Green was good.

    Also, after watching that: I love basketball! Let’s go Celtics!

  • NE_Celt

    1) Watching those highlights really makes me want the season to start…
    2) Humphries was a great hustle player and I would have been fine with him staying this year, but I think he will do great things in Washington.
    3) Jordan Crawford was actually one of the shining moments of the season last year, he had some great passes and some great shooting nights…when he wasn’t being a knucklehead.
    4)That pass from Wallace and shot by Green I could watch over and over again all day…awesome play

    • Dave

      After seeing that shot from Green I thought it was gonna be his breakout season where he turns into the superstar that everyone wanted to see from him but he ended up really inconsistent and pissing a lot of us off.

      I wished KG and PP could have stayed one more year, would have been good for Green too

      • NE_Celt

        It sucks about Green…but in my opinion we put too much on him to begin with…as fans we kind of overhyped him and when he didn’t live up to the standards we set, we got mad at him. I agree with more teaching from PP and KG he may have become more consistent. But with a new coach, losing your superstars…maybe he never found his groove last year.

        I think we all have an idea of who he is and what he can do…but this season we should just enjoy when he throws down a shattering dunk from time to time and not expect him to take over games or be the next C’s superstar.

        • Dave

          True, you’ve got a point, plus he really only had 1 full season under PP and KG, as of right now most ppl see him as a 2nd or 3rd option on a contender, if he becomes more consistent he can be more of a primary 2nd option and occasional 1st option but yea we put to much on him and should just let him find his groove this season where he had trouble doing last year

        Green just isnt passionate about basketball. He wouldve improved alot if only he put his heart into it. But seeing that his problems from 2013 season were still the problems he had last year, easy to say that he has reached his peak unless theres a dramatic change in his mindset.

        His dribbling hasnt improved, and very tentative in the post, Both of which is holding him back from being an all star.

        • Dave

          A lot of times he’s too soft/nice, that’s why KG always told him to be more of an asshole, which he should, wished KG stayed a little longer to get in the ear of him and a few other guys

          • wil

            might be hard to change because it seems really his personality. I think he could learn alot from Gerald Wallace.

            Despite all the hate about Gerald Wallace. He plays his heart out. Smart basketball player too, cuts well, post ups in the right situation. You dont even have to call plays for him when rondo is on the floor.

            And the main difference youll see is in the post ups. Both guys has size advantage but once Wallace catches the ball he makes a move. Green on the other hand surveys the surrounding and often just starts to make a move when the help defender is already at him.

            At this point of Greens career, he is still very raw. other than his athleticism and his shooting stroke, nothing in his game seems to stand out.

          • Dave

            Yea that’s a good summary of him, once his athleticism goes he’d be more limited, but yea the thing I always hated is how he lacks a killer instinct, a lot of times he’s such a tease, beasting one night and then half assing it the next, it’s fine to be a nice guy but not on the court, guys like Rondo, KG, Perk, and PP are chill guys off the court but once they get on it they’re all business

          • wil

            i think Green only takes what the defense gives him. Force him left and double team him on the block. im pretty sure that he’ll be shut down. Thats Why he strives as a 3rd option when no one notices him.

    • willardweston

      We already have Bass taking minutes from sully and olynyk. If Humphries was still here, their development would be stunted. I love Bass and Hump, but not taking minutes from the youngsters. And I agree with you on the Green shot… I did watch it all night

      • NE_Celt

        Very true. Still liked Humps hustle though. Sully is def good inside rebounding and his shot is coming along…KO has a decent stroke but I really hope he gets more physical around the boards. I think this could be a big year for both of them.

  • theTruth

    Can we please show Jeff green some love? His fingerprints are all over that top 10, making plays that only a handful of guys in the league can make. Instead of trying to ship him out for pennies, let’s put guys around him that stop teams from helping off their guys, clogging the lane up. You’ll see more highlight dunks, and less settling for deep threes.
