Ray Allen and his breakup with the Celtics might finally be reaching a happy ending. Paul Pierce recently said on Instagram how he wants to bury the hatchet with Allen and their former Celtics teammates. While no public comments have been made from Kevin Garnett or Rajon Rondo, Allen appears ready to take his part in ending the feud. In an interview with ESPN, Allen said that he holds “no ill will” toward his former Celtics teammates. He appreciates the time they spent together and the championship they won. To him it was like a family and he wants that feeling back. However, he did make sure to mention he’s never publicly criticized his former teammates the way they have about him.

Paul Pierce makes peace with Ray Allen

The long-simmering feud between Ray Allen and the other members of the 2008 Boston Celtics championship squad might be coming to an end. Paul Pierce, the NBA Finals MVP for that team who signed a one-day contract with Boston earlier this summer to retire as a Celtic, posted a picture of himself and Allen together with the caption, “Time to get the band back together.”

“I was initially hurt by the whole way everything went down,” Pierce said during the segment, speaking about Allen’s departure from Boston in 2012. “Like, I don’t have no beef with none of my teammates. I was just hurt on how it went down. We all came together, we talked about it. We talked every day. We hung out all the time, and then, when it was time for free agency — and to each his own — by I thought we formed a brotherhood here in Boston … That’s what I was hurt about when Ray didn’t at least give us a heads up about it.”

The trade combined with the notion that players are expected to owe loyalty to teams appeared to rub former Celtics star Ray Allen the wrong way – especially given Allen’s history with the Celtics. Allen posted a screenshot of Caron Butler’s Instagram post on Thursday and added his own commentary on the trade.
