Friday morning the reports started surfacing that Ray Allen spent the night in Miami. Since the Clippers signed Crawford and Billups it wasn’t a huge shock. Why rush back to Boston.
Then in the afternoon the reports were Ray Allen had left Miami without signing or making a final decision.
Sports talk radio, ESPN.com and others started speculating. Most people were saying the Heat but fans thought not signing or making the decision while he was down there meant he was coming back to Boston.
Then as I’m sitting at the bar Friday night watching the Sox blow the first of what would be three out of four to the Yankees, reports started coming in.
Ray Allen chose the Heat.
I saw the Jesus is now Judas Facebook quotes (thus your headline), Shuttlesworth is Judas not Jesus, traitor, and on and on it went.
So joking I ask the question, “Do we get to keep Ray’s Mom in the trade?”
At the end of the day, joking aside, you didn’t want Ray back. You just didn’t want him going to Miami. A two year deal for a 37 year old guard coming off ankle surgery seems absurd. So Miami giving him three years is downright dumb.
Reports now are that the C’s are players for Courtney Lee from Houston. He’s no Ray Allen but Danny has to move on and keep trying to build us a winner.
