Ray Allen is taking his talents to Miami

Ray Allen is taking his talents to Miami

Heat owner Micky Arison broke the news several minutes ago. For anyone hoping Arison is drunk tweeting, Yahoo! Sports Marc Spears has also confirmed the news.

Your Morning Dump… Where we’re all still waiting for Ray

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. Miami, already sexy enough as a destination, is the supermodel asking Allen to run away with her. Boston is the old ball-and-chain. Oh sure, the Celtics have [...]

Jeff Green’s getting $40 mil (maybe) while Ray sleeps on Miami’s offer

Earlier today, I casually mentioned that a lot of the hypothetical numbers we’ve been throwing around hinge on assumed numbers.  We all assumed Jeff Green’s contract would be somewhere in the $9 million neighborhood.  Well, it’s sort of in that neighborhood.

Report: Ray deciding between Clips, Heat. C’s eye Nick Young

Because we’re all waiting on pins and needles for Ray to make a decision.  Here’s the latest speculation.

How Good is KG’s New Deal? Compare it with Other Deals and Laugh

Just for fun (as well as a reminder of how absurd some NBA GM’s and owners can be) take a look at the following list of players who will be making just about the same, or in some cases, a crazy amount more than Kevin Garnett next season: Joe Johnson – $19.7 Corey Maggette – [...]
