Rumor: Ray Allen to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami?
So why stop there?
The latest buzz has Ray Allen looking to bolt the Celtics when he becomes free on July 1 to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Ray-Ray in The MIA makes sense.
The 2010 playoff showed The Big Three is no more for the Boston Celtics. Instead of relying specifically on Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce, the green-and-white is succeeding with a team-first approach.
Everyone has contributed. In fact, Allen, Garnett, and Pierce have – at one time or another – struggled during the club’s second-season run.
Perhaps, Boston GM Danny Ainge lets his veteran sharpshooter leave via free agency and signs/trades for a younger two-guard. Remember, Ainge allegedly shopped Allen at the trade deadline, trying to swap his expiring contract for scorer Kevin Martin.
Miami would be heaven for Allen. He’d get open looks galore with opposing defenses doubling Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh -if he signs with the Heat. Wade, Bosh, and Allen would together vault Miami to the top of the Eastern Conference.
One thing is certain: The Big Three is on their last legs in Boston.
