Ray “Don’t call me Jesus” Allen’s acrimonious departure from the Celtics was well documented in the media. I guess Rondo doesn’t even acknowledge the dude’s existence anymore. And there were plenty of angry Celtics fans on forums claiming he was done, washed up, kaput.
Well he kind of is. But the last thing to go as you get older is your shot. And, really, the Heat don’t need another player to handle the ball. They just need someone to shoot the damn thing. Does that make him the perfect role-player for them? Probably.
