Ray Allen: Pierce’s Hurt Feelings Justified
Almost nine months have passed since Ray Allen joined the Miami Heat, and Paul Pierce still hasn’t talked to his former teammate.
“It definitely hurt me,” Pierce said. “Say we playthe Lakers for the championship, and two years later I go and sign with the Lakers. That’s the equivalent of what he did.”
Allen, told of Pierce’s comments last night, quietly nodded.
“Those feelings are justified. I’m not on his team anymore, I’m not helping them win.
“His feelings are hurt, but he knows, he understands. He and I can look at each other and exchange a glance, because he knows what I had to do. He knows.”
