Celtic fans respond Ray Allen’s return to Boston
Ray Allen is playing his sixteenth game against Boston as an opponent, but this time it’s different. It’s his first time in TD Garden playing against his former team, the Celtics.
Allen got a special tribute video played for him before the game, which showed many moments him and the first “Big Three” shared together. It was followed by a message on the jumbotron that read: “Thanks for the memories Ray!” That was followed by a standing ovation for the 37-year-old guard as the cameras flipped to him on the bench.
Allen told ABC at halftime that he was “happy they acknowledged it”. However, when Allen entered the game, there was a much different reaction. Not only were there very few claps, the majority of the audience began to boo Allen as he entered for Mario Chalmers.
Welcome back, Ray.
