Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis are different. They’ve built a friendship that is stronger than the obstacles they’ve experienced dealing with the business of basketball. They’re like brothers who respect each other on the court and appreciate each other when the game ends. They’ve relied on their bond to help with the transition to Miami, while enjoying another chance to play together in the twilight of their careers. “I was sitting at my home in Connecticut when I found out; I was excited,” Allen said. “I randomly called him and he told me he was coming down and looking forward to being able to join. “I was very excited. He’s a guy that’s made a great career for himself. The teams we played for in Seattle, we had some great times. Over four years, we only made it to the playoffs one time, but he had some great teams. We had fun together and respected each other and that’s something I’ve always appreciated and cherished.”
What factors led you to sign with Miami? Rashard Lewis: I’m at a point in my career to want to win a Championship and it’s not all about the accolades, being an All-Star, scoring, none of that. I just felt like this was the best fit team to give me a chance to compete for a title. We haven’t done it yet, so we got our work cut out for us. If you look at the history of guys that defend an NBA Championship, it’s very tough to do that.

The process involves shock waves. It’s a non-surgical treatment the Heat believed could get Lewis, 33, back to at least somewhat resembling a player who was an All-Star in 2005 and 2009. “They just numb the knees basically like ultrasound,’’ Lewis said. “It breaks down a lot of the scar tissue and it kind of rebuilds it. It took me off the court for a couple of months… (The Heat believed) it was something that could really help me and get me back on the court playing at a high rate, and I told them anything that would help me be even a little bit better than I was the past season, the past couple of years, I’m willing to try.’’

With the addition of guard Ray Allen and forward Rashard Lewis, Miami Heat forward LeBron James believes the Heat can be “scary good.” “We can be better than we were this past season,” James said. “Are we better right now than we were just a couple of months ago? Of course not. But we’ve got time to get better. We have the potential to be better. We have the potential to be a lot better, and that is scary.
