[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Is Ray Allen sick? : You're not being honest. Ray is a one-dimensional player right now. Pietrus plays offense and defense, he's not one-dimensional. Ray is only a great shooter. He doesn't post up, he's not a good ball handler, and he's a defensive liability. Come on, Ray averaging 14.8 ppg is not exactly what you would consider a scorer.

First: How is this any different than Paul Pierce. Pierce also plays terrible defense, is 2nd in leading the team in turnovers (almost tied with Rondo, atleast Rondo has the excuse of having the ball most of the time), (who is a terrible ball handler again?) and for his size is a terrible rebounder, and doesn't even run the floor like Ray. Furthermore, Pierce gets beat on defense all the time and blows his assignments and gives up on plays all the time--LAZY? I say yes! - on defense---google it, it's a fact.
But we don't hear you getting on Pierce's case do we?!
Second: I don't agree with your statment at all: Ray might not be the best defender in the world, but he plays great team defense, better than Pietrus because he has been with the team longer. Offense wise, he is light years ahead of Peitrus, obvioulsy a better shooter, a better passer, commands double teams, can spread the floor and is a smarter player overall on offense.
Furthermore: Peitrus is not that much better, if better at all, than Ray on defense. The only reason why it appears that way is Peitrus is playing limited minutes and is putting all his energy into his defense. If he becomes a regular starter, you will see his defense go back to normal mediocrity---if anyone questions this: go and watch some of the footage when Ray contunuelly destroyed Peitrus when the Celts went against the Magics.
Ray is averaging around 15ppg because he is the SECOND-TO-THIRD OPTION! Your boy Pierce is the #1 option and needs the ball in his hands to score. And for a number #1 option, Pierce is not cutting it and you know it.
In conclusion: you have no credibility at all when describing Ray Allen because you are a known Ray Allen hater from year 1, therefore your statement, or statements in general, in regards to Ray Allen, are totally biase and should be ignored.
