Don't get embarrassed. Give Ray a standing ovation. Don't get embarrassed.

Don't get embarrassed. Give Ray a standing ovation. Don't get embarrassed.

Not sure what percentage I'd put on that happening... I'd say 25%. Although if it's the same crowd that we had for the Knicks game, they'll just be quiet.

 

Just fucking win, we are at our lowest point right now. Start the climb up.

Ray is besides the point today.  The Cs are so pathetic right now that the fans who might have booed Ray with gutso wont have the energy to do it.

 

I'm still pissed at Ray for joining those misanthropes and would probably lightly boo if I was there.  I don't need a Bob Ryan-like lecture about why that makes me a misguided fan.  This is from the heart and I get the points that Doc Rivers and others will forcefully make about Ray's contribution to the Cs, 2008 and his right to choose, particularly after the Cs continually tried to deal him.

 

Sigh.

The difference is that Johnny D never gave the perception of being a distinguished figure like Ray, Johnny D's mom wasn't a beloved figure at the Fens, and Michelle did not have her own cooking show. Ray's move seems much more traitorish, if that's a word

 

I will be booing Ray from one the Premium seats (thank you, tundra). Anyone who wants to have a soft drink is welcome.

Everything about Ray's departure drives me insane.

 

A "former teammate" weighs in:

 

"One former Celtics teammate of Allen's told Metro Boston that the way in
which Allen left - choosing Miami over Boston shortly after that team
knocked the C's out of the postseason - irked him a bit. The player
understands that Allen had to do what's best for himself, but wondered
if his future with Boston, or the possibility of joining the Heat in the
offseason, was on Allen's mind even when the two sides were playing
each other in the postseason."

 

http://www.metro.us/...reeling-celtics

 

I look back at that 7th game against Miami last year... the way it ended... seeing Garnett, Pierce, Rondo, etc. devastated walking off the court... they felt as I felt... then you see Ray Allen essentially celebrating the victory with them... it made me want to vomit.

 

When he signed with the Heat shortly thereafter, his entire M.O. over his career of being this intelligent, honest, loyal, a charitable figure, who's the first one in the gym and the last one to leave, a guy who plays through injuries...  I was over it.

 

Steroids are to Lance Armstrong as big titted whores are to Tiger Woods as signing with the Heat is to Ray Allen.

 

The media painted this incredible picture of a hero for years that I bought into but I no longer feel that way.

 

I appreciate everything he did in Boston.  Play a video to honor his years as a Celtic but it's on after that.

 

Fuck the Heat.  Fuck Ray Allen.

 

Salvage the season.

I'm not particularly into booing.... but at a minimum I wouldn't be giving Ray any sort of ovation. He had a right to leave of course, but I do think it's tarnished his legacy in Boston. Particularly the way he handled it afterward. No reason to pretend otherwise.

 

More importantly.... don't get embarrassed.

Just spent some time on YouTube watching Rondo's game 2 performance, Pierce's "I'm cold blooded" 3 in game 5 and the "Let's go Celtics" chant at the end of game 6.

Shitty ending but what a fun year and era that was.

@SeanGrandePBP: Jared Sullinger (+48 in the last 17 while Cs are -38) will replace Brandon Bass in the starting lineup for the Celtics today.

About time. Hopefully Wilcox is the first big off the bench.

About time is right. I think sully will play well against udon is under the basket.

A fine how do you do. Well, I guess I won't be watching this game after all. I can only handle so much humiliation and depression in one week. A probable thrashing by the asshole-laden heat team is not a spectacle I wish to experience today.

On the plus side, it will fuck with Wade's head not having Rondo in the game. He'll be wandering around aimlessly, looking to someone to injure.

As soon as Lebron gets blocked he immediately looks to the ref as if there's no way that could legally happen.

You really can see the difference in defensive effort between Lee and Rondo. Unfortunately, you can see the difference in talent on the offensive side as well.
