I do agree with the OP somewhat.
Here are some known facts:
Out of the big 3, most of everyone has agreed and admitted, including Doc, that Ray has had to sacrifice his game the most since the start of the Big 3 era.
Ray works harder than probably everyone else on the team and always comes into training camp in shape.
But the Celtics could care less: Ray get's traded, his whole family goes through emotional rollercoaster and has to come to terms with it, only to have it cancelled. Ray does the professional thing and comes back and plays his game without causing trouble.
Next year, it's the same crap times 2: Doc tells Ray, "Hey, go stand in the corner again." Ray says ok. Celtics lose, Ray's statistics goes down. It's Ray's fault. He's too old. He's lost his game. All he does is stand in the corner.
So, after doing what the coach says to do, Ray get's benched for standing in the corner, despite having his best shooting year statistically. And on top of that he is asked to follow the lead of a Diva that can't shoot and has not improved in 5 years and is known for sitting in the parking lot when he should be in the gym working on his game.
Season over: Celtics offer KG a great contract while Ray takes a backseat(again) have I mentioned Ray has sacrificed the most out of the Big 3.
Celtics finally make a half@$$ attempt and offers Ray a contract that is only a few millions better than the Heats offer. Ray thinks: this is what I get for all my hard work and sacrifice.
Ray thinks: If I take the Celtics offer, I will get a few millions more, but I will have to come back and deal with all that's mentioned above times 2, or I can take a few millions less, go to Miami and have a great chance of winning another ring with the King.
Ray takes a look around: there's that punk@$$ diva again. There's that dude that hasn't won or done nothing yet, but will start ahead of me. There's that dude that will trade your @$$ faster than he can say Ubuntu. MMMM...like George Karl says: It's a no brainer.
Ray signed with the Heats.
And I don't blame him.
Now Ray is running around in a Heats uniform like a spring chicken having been set free. He's driving the ball more. He get's to do a little one on one...Ray thinks to himself: It's good to be free.
