There was a mini Celtics reunion at TD Garden on Sunday to celebrate Paul Pierce‘s jersey retirement, with Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, and Doc Rivers all in attendance.
But the other original member of the Boston “Big Three”, Ray Allen, was on a golf course somewhere in Miami with George Lopez.
Asked if he was upset Allen did not make the trip, Pierce said he was more hurt that Tony Allen, who he speaks to regularly, was not at the ceremony, per USA Today‘s Andrew Joseph:

Pierce and Allen have reportedly squashed their beef, which was caused by Allen leaving the Celtics for the Heat before the 2012-13 season, but Garnett is still bitter about the breakup.
