Ray Allen Likely Cost Himself Chance at Having Jersey Retired in Boston by Leaving Celtics (Podcast)

Ray Allen Likely Cost Himself Chance at Having Jersey Retired in Boston by Leaving Celtics (Podcast)Ray Allen is officially a member of the Miami Heat, and while he may be justified in leaving Boston to chase a ring with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, that decision will come at a price.

With Celtics fans reeling after seeing Allen smiling alongside Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra on Wednesday, Ben Watanabe stopped by the NESN.com podcast with Dan Duquette to discuss what led to Allen’s decision, whether it was the right one for the future Hall of Famer, and if the reported friction between Allen and Rajon Rondo played a factor in the 36-year-old’s departure.

They also discussed the chances that Dwight Howard gets dealt or not and wondered if the NBA’s new CBA needs a tweak or two for the good of the league.
