Ray Allen calls out David West for ditching Celtics
 

 

HANG TIME TEXAS, Y’ALL – Circle the date: Jan. 6.

That’s the night when the Pacers make their first visit to Boston this season and Ray Allen can get his question answered:

Why did David West turn his back on the Celtics tradition and All-Star laden lineup to sign with Indiana?

“I’m shocked,” Allen told Jackie MacMullen of ESPNBoston. “I don’t understand it.”


Allen first heard of West’s potential interest in Boston last month when Allen was playing golf in Augusta with his private banker, who coincidentally also handled West’s financial affairs.

“He told me how much I would love [West], that he and I were the same kind of guy — cognitive thinkers,” Allen said. “He said West was interested in coming to the Celtics and would be willing to come for less.”

So why does Allen think West had a change of heart?

“Once it got down to the end, I think his ego kicked back in,” Allen said. “He wanted the dollars. I guess it comes down to ‘What is a championship worth to you?’ ”

It’s not often that you hear a player of Allen’s magnitude and classy demeanor call someone out so directly. There was no pulling punches or hiding behind qualifiers. He was saying that the 31-year-old West, coming off reconstructive knee surgery, went for the bigger payday rather than the bigger potential payoff of trying to win a championship.

So was Allen merely being shamrock green with envy that the Pacers wound up with the big-scoring forward that the Celtics could use to make one more run at a championship?

One might think that in this era of big name players trying to come together to form “super teams,” West might have at least been given a little credit for not choosing to “short-cut” his way to putting a ring on his finger.

But Allen chose the directly opposite tack, speculating that the only thing West was short on is the guts to take a few less dollars.
When you say something like that, you’re not merely talking trash. You’re questioning the inner workings of a player as a competitor.

“Think of all the guys who have made $20 million and could be considered one of the best ever, but they get chided because they never won. We [the Big Three] all had to do less when we won. We’re still taking less to make it work. But it’s worth it. No one can ever say to KG, Paul or me, ‘You guys never got your ring.’ “

Never mind rivalries. It sounds like the beginning of a good old-fashioned grudge match.

Save the date – Jan. 6.

west took less money to play for the pacers, and all the celtics got paid, so ray is either really bad at math/boldface lying, or is just salty and talking out of his a.ss.

Ray Allen is just spitting game.

He's on his way out, so he's just trying to get all the help he can get now before he retires. When he's gone, West is left with fewer dollars and a team rebuilding.

Or maybe West is smart enough to know that even with his help they STILL not winning a championship and might as well, go to Indy and get paid more and finish with no ring rather than go to Boston, play out of position or possibly come of the bench, get paid less. All that for just getting eliminated in the first or second round by Chicago Miami and NYC.

plus he'd never see $9-10M again, if he went to boston and let his stats get fu*ked up for 3 years
