On giving veterans time to rest and limiting practice time going back to his days in Boston – “I just think it’s important. I think it all depends on the team you have. You have an older team, you need to understand it’s a long season. With that group, we were thinking about playing for a long time. Also, they were experiencing things that even though I played, they’re on the floor. You have to trust that group. A guy like Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, you can trust them if they should practice or not. But you learn early on, don’t ask Kevin, because he was going to say, ‘Yes, let’s practice,’ every stinkin’ time. Kevin could be dying in the locker room after the game, and if you’d say, ‘What do you guys think, on or off?’ He’d always say, ‘On.’ So I realized, not a good guy to ask. So you went to Ray and Paul on things like that. You asked Kevin a lot of other things about team building and things like that.”

Q: What made you decide to drop weight? Kyle Lowry: It started during [last] season, and even before that. I was talking to my wife, and she said “You were always your best at your college weight.” The saying is, the older you get, the lighter you’ve got to be. I thought Ray Allen did a great job of that, and Chauncey Billups too. I’m getting to the point where I’m a little bit older. I’m still young, but I’m a little bit older, and I can pick and choose how I want my body to look and feel. It’s good to understand your body. I want to be special. At the end of the day it’s all about me and how I feel and what I can provide for my team and my family.

President Barack Obama continued his Martha’s Vineyard vacation on Wednesday with a game of golf with two NBA stars: Miami Heat’s great Alonzo Mourning and free agent Ray Allen. The group played through the course at the Farm Neck Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard. Completing the foursome was Cyrus Walker, cousin to Obama’s senior advisor Valerie Jarrett. Walker had previously joined Obama for a game of golf at Farm Neck on Friday with comedian Larry David and Robert Wolf, former head of UBS Investment Bank.

Yes, Ray Allen cleaned out his closets this summer and gave away some of his shoes, leading fans on an Instagram-driven scavenger hunt around Hartford. But don’t read into it. He still has lots of shoes, and he’s not yet retired. “I haven’t said anything about that and I won’t officially retire,” Allen said Saturday during a break in his basketball camp for kids at East Granby High. “Because if something came to the table, contractually and situational-ly, I want to be able to take a strong look at it. I don’t want to be that guy that says he’s retiring and then is coming back.”
