Jason Terry Takes A Shot At Ray Allen

Fair or not, Ray Allen has gotten plenty of criticism for joining the Heat.

Jason Terry was essentially brought into Boston to be the replacement for Ray Allen, one of the greatest shooters in NBA history who helped the Celtics win a championship alongside Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. When Allen left for the rival Miami Heat, he caught a fair share of criticism from the Boston fans.

Ray looks to be a great fit in Miami, where he can serve as a floor spacer for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to attack the rim. While the Celtics have yet to put it all together this year, it isn’t stopping Jason Terry from taking a jab at the former Celtic. Via CSN:

“His (Pierce) willingness to stick through the tough times and not just jump off, ‘I’m out of here! I’m going to join forces with Kobe (Bryant),’ or ‘I’m going to play with Dwyane Wade’ — that’s a shot right there,” Terry said.

Terry was referring to Paul Pierce’s monster game against the Cavaliers, where “The Truth” went for 40 points in a Celtics win. This is definitely a shot aimed at Ray Allen, who many think ditched town in the midst of a tough situation to go play with the superstar driven Miami Heat.

I think all basketball fans would love to see a Celtics-Heat match up at some point in the playoffs, just to see everyone back up their talk and settle the matter on the court.

Until that happens, I wouldn’t expect Terry to shut his mouth any time soon.

  • What do you mean everybody backup what they are saying? Ray Allen has not said anything!

  • I wish Jason Terry would shut up about Ray Allen and Lebron James…how is his comments helping his team? They barely above .500…and Pierce wouldn’t hav his ring without Allen & Garnett so what’s the difference??? He needs to worry abt the Celtics, not the Miami Heat, and that’s real talk

  • Jason Terry, U kidding! Doesn’t even come close to the shooter or player that Ray Allen is. Oh Ray Alen can play defense

  • Sorry, but i Allen is a class act and should not have lost his starting role to Bradley. Reduce his minutes maybe, but Boston slapped him in the face first. I will admit though that I would have wrather seen him go anywhere but Miami.

  • I am sick of here about Ray Allen, Ray Allen is a great shooter and will go down as one of the best but as one of the biggest fan of Boston I hated he went to Miami. Him going to Miami looks like thats where his attention was instead of playing for Boston in the playoffs last year. If you don’t like your job you look else where so I guest he decide that he will win more championships in Miami, but he is gone and thats old news. Doc needs to get more players in the his rotation and stop playing the same ones all the time Barbosa good and Terry needs to come off bench and also Pierce needs to show up more and Green. Garnett is the soul of the team and give 100% all the time and Rondo has to be on game rather passing are shooting ball whatever it takes to win.
