In response to Fierce34's comment:
(1)There are posters here who actually keep saying the Celtics are better off with Ray than Terry and Lee. That's a fact!
(2)But if you really insist in making this "fun" again then we can also do that.
(3)Let's be realistic here, when Terry's contract is up, he'll just be 37 years old. When Terry's 37 years old, Ray is 39 years old going 40.
(4)And come on, the way Ray blamed the Celtics for not re-signing him, totally classless. No wonder KG and Pierce pretend they don't know Ray anymore.
(5)2 words best describe Ray Allen now - TRAITOR RAY!
(1)I don't know that this is a fact as you are the only one I know who thinks we could not have signed Lee after signing Terry. Actually Terry is more expensive cap wise.
(2)Man up, you were spinning the facts and then used the "it is all just a joke" excuse. Hard to take you serious now.
(3)You are right but: a) It can hardly be called "getting younger" when you sign a 35 year old small SG for a 37 old tall SG for 3 years. Who knows which player will be doing better in 2 years from now. b) This is the last stand of the current team, who cares what Terry and Ray can do in 2 years.
(4)As far as I remember these are the facts: Ray was our best player at the beginning of last season. PP and Pierce were fat and out of shape. When both came around, the team started to play better and Ray was injured he was benched for a greenhorn. Ray never complained in public. Then another veteran SG in Terry was hired. What do you expect from a player who is as competitve as KG but not such a money hunter? He will leave to a place were he feels respected. And actually he didn't say a word in the press before the Cs did. I wished he would have kept hismouth shut either, but he didn't start with it.
(5)You sound like a betrayed lover. That is fine with me, but you should keep in mind: Emotions are never objective. Like I said: You are blinded by your emotions.
