Paul Pierce and the rest of the ’08 Celtics championship team have been beefing with former teammate Ray Allen after Allen decided to bolt the team to join LeBron James and the rival Miami Heat.
“I was initially hurt by the whole way everything went down. Like, I don’t have no beef with none of my teammates. I was just hurt on how it went down. We all came together, we talked about it. We talked everyday. We hung out all the time and then, when it was time for free agency — and to each his own — by I thought we formed a brotherhood here in Boston … That’s what I was hurt about when Ray didn’t at least give us a heads up about it.”
Today, the Boston Celtics retired Paul Pierce’s number in the Garden and was surroundedand by his former Celtics teammates Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, and former coach Doc Rivers.
One member of the 08’Celtics team, Ray Allen, was noticeably absent during today’s ceremony. While his former teammates were in Boston, Allen Instagrammed himself golfing with comedian George Lopez.
These guys need to get over it already.
