Allen’s new, old teams collide Tuesday


There’s no shortage of potentially awkward situations for Ray Allen to endure Tuesday night. Most of his new Miami Heat teammates will get championship rings; he won’t be among them. When the franchise’s second title banner gets raised to the rafters, Allen isn’t sure how he’s supposed to react. And all that hubbub will occur as his past collides with his future – his former team, the Boston Celtics, will be the opponent awaiting the Heat when their pregame tribute to the 2012 NBA title ends. “It’s their moment,” Allen said. “I’ve gotten over it now to the point where you just say, you can celebrate their success. More than anything, I’m just focused on once that’s over with, we have a game to go out and win.” – Associated Press
