Over a year since he left Boston, Ray Allen still can’t get so much as a conversation with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, and according to this Boston Herald report, it sounds like it’s starting to get to him: “At this stage, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have made like the last Japanese soldiers on Iwo Jima, refusing to give up the war. That’s how the two former Celtics continue to regard their former teammate and current Heat guard, Ray Allen. ‘They haven’t spoken to me,’ Allen said before last night’s game against what remained of his former team. … Allen admittedly is hurt, because he doesn’t understand the difference between their trade out of Boston last summer and his decision to leave two years ago. Deep down, Allen believes Pierce and Garnett determined their own fate. ‘For them to be so upset with me is disappointing because of how everything happened,’ Allen said. ‘That banner in 2008 is still going to be there, and we’re still going to be tied to it. Look, I have a feeling they were in the same predicament I was in this summer. Even with Doc (Rivers), he had to make a decision that was best for himself. I was in the same situation. I’m happy they were put into the same situation as I was. Anytime you get traded there’s no telling where you could end up. They’re in a situation now where they can contend. Kevin had to make that decision, and that was the predicament I was in.’”
