Ray Allen and the Boston Celtics broke up years ago, but this soap opera still is alive and well.
Kevin Garnett held a Celtics reunion of sorts Monday night on his “Area 21” show that conspicuously didn’t include Allen. KG wasn’t shy about the reason for Allen’s exclusion, either: He, Paul Pierce, Kendrick Perkins, Glen “Big Baby” Davis and Rajon Rondo had a candid discussion about how they felt betrayed by Allen’s decision to leave for the Miami Heat in 2012.
On Tuesday morning, it was Allen’s turn to fire back. The retired sharpshooter posted a photo on his official Facebook page that could be unrelated but totally is related to the comments about him on Monday’s show.
He eventually deleted the post, but the power of the internet ensures it will live on in screenshot form.
If that’s not passive-aggressive, we don’t know what is.
Perkins said Monday he believes it’s on Allen to reach out to his former Celtics teammates and mend fences. But judging by the above photo, it appears Allen has no intentions of doing so in the near future.
