To Boo Or Not To Boo (#20)?

If you're sick and tired of talking about Ray Allen, then please by all means, "Stop reading this post".

As Celtic fans, it's impossible for us to forget about the past. We have pride in the fact that the Celtics have won 17 championships. As a team with arguably the most lengthy historical background in the history of the NBA, we shouldn't forget 5 years of time, energy, and effort for just 1 offseason.

Ray Allen has given a lot to the Celtics. From Ray's last season with Seattle to his first season with Boston, Allen has given up 7.5 shots a game, 9 points, and 4.4 minutes. Ironically, enough, Ray Allen left his best season scoring-wise to come to Boston. Allen went from the go-to guy, to slowly becoming a Catch-N-Shoot role player.

Personally, I won't boo Allen, I wont cheer for him either though. Not really because of the offseason drama, but because I can't completely throw away 5 years of hard work, 5 years of going "Ray Allen for threeeee!!!!", 5 years of holding my breath whenever Allen tossed up a 3-pointer, and 5 years of jumping like crazy whenever Allen hit a clutch shot.

Allen's career stats as a Boston Celtics:

Regular Season: 16.5 points, 47% from the field, 41% from 3-point range, and 91% from the free throw line in 358 out of a possible 394 games (91% of games played).

Postseason: 15.9 points, 44% from the field, 40% from 3-point range, and 88% from the free throw line in 91 games.

Celtic fans are fond of history, and constantly take pride in the fact that they are arguably the best franchise in the history of the NBA, so although I'm not telling anybody to boo or not too, at least acknowledge what he's given the Celtics for the past 5 years.

Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
