    "But thanks for the small sample update;"

    another Ray Allen thread? Really? Can you maybe do these as monthly updates at least? 

    Ray was a good Celtic and he made a good choice for himself, on that we agree. 

    Here's where we part: I'm done talking about him. Can we move on soon?

    Ray's body breaks down during a long season, and he becomes a defensive liability.

    Miami wastes $30 million dollars.



    I've got the Heat paying RayRay 3mil/year for 3 years.

    Right now he's LOOKING LIKE  a 10mil/year player.

    So I understand exactly where you are coming from.

    A hall of fame player with still plenty of game left for 3mil a year--Miami got a steal...not only that, but Ray looks like the Ray before Doc told him to go stand in the corner for the last five years---Now in Miami: he's going coast-to-coast, dribbling behind his back, driving to the hole, falling on the ground fighting for lose balls...D@mn!

    His stats tonight: 15points 3-4 from 3s...on only 9 shots--6 rebounds and 6 assists...D@mn!  Miami is already labeling Lebron, Wade, Bosh and Ray The Fantastic Four....Thanks Rondo!

    Right.  Allen is shooting far better over the first four games then he will for the rest of the season.

    Good point.

    Ray is going to get good looks down there with Wade and Lebron.  He would not get them here.  I don't miss Ray and we will not regret losing him.  We will regret not having someone of size and skill upfront.

    Its more than good looks. Ray is having fun again playing bb. 15/6/6 is a great stat line.

    Maybe Fierce will resusitate his (in)famous Occupy Rondo campaign as trade deadline approaches.

     Allen wont keep up that stat line.  He wont keep shooting over 60 percent from the floor and 50 percent from 3. Don't you know that?

     

    Do you follow basketball at all?  Do you think Allen at his age will now shoot better, and have more rebounds and more assists then he ever has in his career? This isn't complicated stuff.

    Re: RAY: 63% from the field, 56% from 3... it was a WISE choice!

    stats that you forgot-

    ray is 20% on defense.  20% of an elite defensive player

    125% of a turnover machine when he puts the ball on the floor

    0% of a ball handler in traffic

    he's a predictable stand still and shoot guy from here on out.  if miami can create enough motion, he'll score some points.  if the game slows down, like it does a lot in BOS, he's a liability.

    Re: RAY: 63% from the field, 56% from 3... it was a WISE choice!

    and by the way, if you want to lament "numbers about a player" 3 games into a season- look at glen davis.  he's averaging 25.5 pts, 9 rebs, 2.5 dimes and 1 Steal so far.


    i'm sure he's improved some over last year, but it ain't going to last like that.  right?


    so WHO CARES what ray's done through 3 games.  between his crankles and mike miller's broken back, MIA will be lucky to have one of them on the floor doing what they need when the music stops in the playoffs.  very lucky

    Acie:

    RA's crankles served him pretty well in 2007-08 after they were scoped. I remember him one on one blowing by SashaV for the clincher if memory serves me.

    He's older now but his freshly scoped ankles may endure less wear/tear coming off the bench w/ the floor fully spread so he doesn't have to work so hard to get open.

    The notion that he's driving to the hoop, dishing and rebounding in addition to 3-balling is unbelievable.

    Will it last???

    Stay tuned, RayRay fans. Others may avert their eyes.

    I love Ray. I dont wish bad things on him.

     I just know something about basketball.  Ray could should 48 percent from the floor this year and shoot 40 from 3.

    He isn't going to keep playing at this pace.  Anyone but a fool would know that.

    LoL.. I am laughing at loud.

    You guys know that none of that good stuff counts for the Ray haters.

    They got their reasons and their own twisted logic.

    I agree on this:  Ray's got a lot left in the tank, and the Heat got a real bargin. 

    As Bob Neumy used to say, Why can't we get players like that?

    absolutely not.  it cannot last.  he did not make it through last season. 


    he's on his third ankle surgery.  the only chance for ray to "last" is if they don't use him much.  and then how do you keep conditioning?

    Ray's averaging 28min/game at this point in the season.

    Last year he averaged 34min/game and ranged from 34 to 36.5min/game during his tenure in Beantown.

    Prior to Boston, he was in the high 30's to low 40's per game every season.

    The Heat should limit him to 18-20minutes/game and keep him fresh for the PO's.

    Considering that he will be carrying less of a load in Miami and getting a lot of open looks, he has a better chance of staying healthy there than here.... and a lot more productive too.

    KG and PP should be envious of RA's situation of being able to play less and do more.

    I don't hate Ray.

    It is quite odd how people think that Ray Allen wont keep shooting 63 percent are called "haters" instead of realists.  By the end of the year Ray will be shooting 46, or 47 percent.

    Exactly.  Ray started out last season on fire, shooting ridiculous percentages in the first month of the season.  How did that work out?  New ankles or not, he has only one direction he can go.

    people dont understand that danny ainge offered ray DOUBLE what he got from miami.....danny wanted ray back, ray didnt want to be back. and its too early to tell whether it will work out for us or not....if you want to buy this much stock into the first three or four games of the season, then apparently the knicks will sweep the heat in the playoffs because they beat them badly....seriously, way too early to tell.
