Looking back on these playoffs, both the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder set themselves apart as the two dominant franchises of their respective conference.
And while some Celtics fans will object to that statement by pointing out that Boston took Miami to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals, how can you argue with what LeBron James did to them in Game 6?
Furthermore, if you want to talk about how the Celtics were missing Avery Bradley, we could then discuss how Miami was without Bosh for much of the series.
In essence, the Celtics' last hurrah came months ago, and how can anyone really believe they pose a legitimate threat to Miami when the Heat have eliminated them in the last two playoffs.
More so than that, who's to say that the Celtics are even better than the Chicago Bulls?
At the end of the day, Allen has made enough money in his career to be comfortable for the rest of his life.
But for a drive-and-kick team like Miami, Allen could find no better situation to make the best use of his skills at this point in his career.
See, a return to Boston may keep the Celtics competitive, but his addition in Miami may just put the Heat over the top.
Not to mention, a few more rings may also go a long way in strengthening his case for the Hall of Fame.
