It’s safe to say that the Celtics’ current lineup is over the Ray Allen saga.
At media day, Kevin Garnett had some choice words when asked about his former teammate. According to WEEI.com, Garnett told reporters that he does not have Allen’s phone number anymore and does not wish to communicate with him either.
In addition, according to the Boston Herald, Rajon Rondo chose not to refer to his former teammate by name and only addressed him as No. 20. When asked about Allen, Jason Terry said, "Who?"
The Celtics clearly still have a bad taste in their mouths from Allen’s decision to join Miami. If anything, this has escalated the rivalry to a higher level. It will make Boston-Miami games more intense, more chippy, and more fun to watch.
In addition, veteran Jason Terry is an upgrade from Ray Allen. Despite Allen's knack for draining threes, Terry can make a bigger overall contribution. Not only can Terry play both guard positions, but he can also set up his own shot. Rondo can run a bigger variety of plays through Terry, who thrives at the sixth man position.
