Celtics Captain Understands Ray Allen’s Miami Move
Allen declined Celtics’ offer and moves to Miami Heat
August 06- 2012- It may not be that easy to accept but Boston Celtics captain Paul Pierce has expressed support for his former teammate Ray Allen’s decision to move to Miami Heat.
In his first ever off-season comment, Pierce admitted that he was a little bitter over the transfer but stressed that he understands Allen’s decision. “Ray made the best decision for him,” Pierce said.
After becoming a free agent, Allen declined Celtics’ two-year offer worth $12 million in order to play for the Heat for half the price.
Pierce said it was the best thing to do for Allen’s family. “That’s what it’s all about: You get in these situations, you become a free agent, and you make a decision based on what’s best for you and your family. Ray will always be a brother for me.”
The captain also thanked Allen for helping sweep the championship for Celtics. “If it wasn’t for him, I probably wouldn’t be wearing a championship ring.
So the things he was able to do for this organization, will never be forgotten,” he said.
Now that key player Allen will no longer banner the team, Danny Ainge, Celtics president of basketball operations, is working to bring more key players to the squad.
One of the highlights during the off-season was Ainge’s move to extend Kevin Garnett’s contract by three years.
The team is also set to welcome the likes of Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, and Jeffrey Green in the upcoming season.
This move by Ainge has earned the support of Pierce, who said that strengthening the team’s core and depth will really help him a lot in his captain-ship.
Meanwhile, Pierce revealed that he has been working out to ease his sprained MCL, an injury that greatly affected his games last season. However, he stressed that he does not want to use the injury as an excuse for some of his shortcomings.
Celtics’ rally last season was hampered by a series of injuries that hit several players but Pierce is optimistic that the team is more prepared and excited for the next season.
“It’s fresh excitement – we’re going to build on what we did last year. I think we’re more talented,” he said.
