Ray Allen is still on the outside looking in of the 2007-2008, NBA championship-winning Celtics.
Former Celtics Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, Glen Davis, and Kendrick Perkins joined Kevin Garnett Monday night to talk about the championship squad. One major topic of discussion was Allen, who left Boston in the summer of 2012 to sign with the Miami Heat.
“It was more than basketball for us… It felt like a sour breakup.”

“I was initially hurt by the whole way everything went down,” said Pierce. “I think I would have taken it better if he had just talked to us about it. I don’t know how his relationship was with Doc [Rivers], it was kind of souring at the time because Avery [Bradley] was getting more minutes, so I can understand that. But I just felt like we should have had a conversation, and it would have settled over a little more.”
