Just when I was convinced that Ray Allen was a classless diva, who left Boston for the Celtics’ arch rivals because he was trying to stick it to the fans, he goes and does something classy.
Unlike my hero Lloyd Christmas, Ray didn’t totally redeem himself. But he did help mend some fences.
Don’t get me wrong, I would rather he had stayed in Boston, and put in 2 more years here before retiring. But at least I don’t hate him. Ray Allen was always known as the true professional, and today he proved that. This somewhat shows that he was mad at his situation in Boston, but that he still respects the fans.
Here is the quote from the ad:
Dear Celtics fans,
For the past five years, my family and I took great pride in calling Boston home. We have loved living in this city, being members of the Celtics family and being part of your community. These memories will be cherished forever.
From my heart, THANK YOU Boston for this incredible journey.
I am glad he did this, because I do want to look back at the Big 3 era with fond memories, and Ray partially diminished that with this move. But now after this I can see he always did care for the fans.
Just not as much as he cared for whatever problems he had with the C’s front office and players.
