After joining the Celtics in 2006 with Kevin Garnett, the duo paired with Paul Pierce to form the latest version of the Big Three. Allen was sensational in his first year with the team, helping the Celtics win the 2007 NBA championship.
He also accomplished personal milestones in Boston, becoming the NBA’s all time 3-point leader in 2011.
Allen has been a fan favorite, with his lights-out shooting and incredible work ethic becoming a neccessity for the Celtics to win. Fans have even grown accustomed to seeing his mother in the stands, cheering her son on with the rest of Boston.
But as they say, all good things must come to an end. It appears that Allen’s time with the Celtics may close soon. Several reports have come up of teams interested in the free agent, the most recent one being the 2012 NBA champion Miami Heat.
If Allen does sign with a new team, where would you least like to see him play?
