Doc Rivers Wants to Let Ray Allen Keep Talking

With the Miami Heat/Boston Celtics season opener inching closer and closer, the talk between the two rivals continues to ratchet up. Dismissively, Doc Rivers responded to the latest verbal volley from Ray Allen. Per CSNNE: “In short, back in 2009, Allen called Rondo to tell him the two of them were going to be traded to Phoenix if Rondo didn’t change his ways. Allen says Rondo took it the wrong way. On Tuesday, both Rondo and Rivers were asked about those comments. Rondo hadn’t heard them. Neither did Rivers, who then added a little something extra. ‘I didn’t even know it, so I’m surprised right now,’ Rivers said. ‘I never knew that, I don’t think [the trade rumor is] true. We’re just going to let Ray keep talking, it’s easier.’ More fuel to the fire.”

    Yea Ray is startin to look like a scumbag, him leaving was his choice and his right as a F.A., but dont air out your former teammates,, and try to throw the organization and front office under the bus, hes really not the professional he once was or (acted) like… I see hes already infected with the (M)ia-virus

    No player is bigger than a franchise like the Celtics. Ray can’t and won’t win any kind of verbal battle with them. He should just play. He may be saying all of these things and adding fuel to the fire because he just so happens to have 2 of the 5 best players in basketball on his team. Doc is well-liked in the league. Players love playing for him and those who haven’t played for him respect him a great deal. Rondo is one of the best PGs in basketball. KG is well-respected as a competitor. Pierce is the same. Ray should be cool with where he is in his career. No need to harp on things that happened in the past. He landed in a great situation. Just play ball.
