In shocking news, Kevin Garnett has no interest in Ray Allen (VIDEO)

Oct 30, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

It’s only opening night, and I’m already sick of the burgeoning feud between Ray Allen and the Boston Celtics. We get it — Boston fans (and apparently teammates) aren’t pleased with Allen’s decision to leave to go to the one team that primarily stands in the Celtics’ way of getting back to the NBA Finals.

But hey, free agency is all about choice. And if you’re Ray Allen, and the starting point guard on your current team essentially hates you, and that same team has engaged in trade talks with you multiple times in separate seasons, leaving to go to the defending world champions seems like a pretty easy decision to make.

Nevertheless, Kevin Garnett sees life differently. No surprise there, but completely cutting ties with a veteran teammate — including pretending to lose his phone number — isn’t exactly the most mature way to handle things.

Garnett continued along that path on Tuesday, when Allen checked into the game for the first time and went over to the Celtics’ bench to extend a gesture of good sportsmanship, as well as greet his former coworkers — some of which he spent the last five seasons with.

As seen in the video above, Garnett completely ignores Allen, and Allen immediately moves on when he gets the reaction from Garnett that he was likely expecting.

We’re done with this now, right? Allen can stop holding press conferences about the topic and pouring his heart out to anyone who will listen, and the Celtics can stop responding like a scorned ex-girlfriend.

At least until the postseason, when we’ll undoubtedly have to revisit all of this again should these two teams meet in a best-of-seven series.

    Dwyane wade needs to stop crying to the refs every play you were not fouled every play idiot

    • Mr. Wright 212 - Oct 30, 2012 at 10:02 PM

      Chalmers getting the call when KG didn’t even touch him leads me to believe that I don’t even need to watch this season one bit.

      • WatchThis - Oct 30, 2012 at 11:51 PM

        HAHAHA! Season’s over for you.

      • infectorman - Oct 31, 2012 at 8:47 AM

        Mr W;.
        hope you fared ok in the storm.

        You’ve succinctly summarized the NBA with one statement.

        This league is a shadow of it’s former self. All the youth love it and think its great.
        But the officiating has ruined the game for a long time now…

        sad , really

    • eventhorizon04 - Oct 31, 2012 at 2:43 AM

      What about Rondo, who was penalized with a technical foul for refusing to stop complaining about a no-call, even after a referee told him to stop?

  2. 20dollardinners - Oct 30, 2012 at 9:51 PM

    That was classic

  3. Mr. Wright 212 - Oct 30, 2012 at 9:57 PM

    I love it.

  4. miamatt - Oct 30, 2012 at 10:06 PM

    Good to see that it didn’t take even one game for all the crybabies to warm up the whaaaaaambulance in the comment section.

    • guyaneserj - Oct 31, 2012 at 9:10 AM

      LOL.. Agreed!!

  5. rodge1 - Oct 30, 2012 at 10:08 PM

    Whether you watch or not you’re still going to be a hater(s).

  6. playin2x - Oct 30, 2012 at 10:29 PM

    U want the media to stop talking about yet u post about it. Lol

    • phaden27 - Oct 30, 2012 at 11:08 PM

      Yeah no kidding. You also hear them talk about how there’s no real rivalries and now that there is one they complain about it? I love these two way streets!

  7. doublebro - Oct 30, 2012 at 10:51 PM

    You summed it up rodge1
    Dumba**

  8. bklyn1876 - Oct 30, 2012 at 10:53 PM

    Rondo and Garnett are a bunch of thugs

  9. dls612 - Oct 30, 2012 at 11:12 PM

    Thats ok Ray the best way to say I don’t give a fck. Is with a win /19 points

  10. 1972wasalongtimeago - Oct 30, 2012 at 11:33 PM

    Anyone who thinks Jason Terry is in the same, or even close, to the same class as Ray Allen simply doesn’t know basketball. For every spectacular shot, there’s 5 unanswered prayers. He’s unpredictable, inefficient, careless, reckless, and occasionally can bring the house down with a 3.

    Ray is a better shooter, smarter, steadier, and ultra-reliable. And he made the right choice.

  11. profootballwalk - Oct 31, 2012 at 12:19 AM

    It was Allen who started badmouthing his former teammates to the Miami media. He kept his mouth shut while he was in Boston, and then started whining when he got safely out of town. He took less money that Boston offered, and then said that it was a business decision. He just wanted to ride Lebron’s coattails to another championship.

    • vero1402 - Oct 31, 2012 at 12:57 AM

      and that’s not business?Winning championship isn’t business?

    • eventhorizon04 - Oct 31, 2012 at 2:41 AM

      Just to review:

      When KG accepts less money to stay in Boston, he’s sacrificing to help win a championship.

      When Ray Allen accepts less money to play in Miami, he’s making a bad business decision and selling out.

      Nice.

      • bozosforall - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:27 PM

        Crybaby Boaton losers will always try to spn it to their favor. Too bad for them that the rest of us see right through the delusion. One ring in a quarter century is just lame.

    • hehateme2 - Oct 31, 2012 at 6:39 AM

      Garnett is a punk. Enjoy watching the Heat win another Championship chowder heads.

    • guyaneserj - Oct 31, 2012 at 9:18 AM

      So the fact that the Celtics on multiple occasions over at least two years, tried 2 trade Ray Ray bears no significance on his leaving huh?

      It amazes me how dumb some of you guys are? U speak about loyalty, where was loyalty when BC/Danny Ainge tried 2 trade him, oh yeah, it was a business decision, my bad! So the fact that Ray Ray now decides to do what’s best for him and his family, ppl start crying like little girls cause it happened? My question is, wld any of you do any different? I think not!

  12. rickyspanish - Oct 31, 2012 at 12:32 AM

    Mr. Wright 212

    I missed all your comments from last year about how you’re not going to watch basketball anymore. Do yourself a favor by actually doing what you’ve been saying, stop watching.

    • eventhorizon04 - Oct 31, 2012 at 2:44 AM

      Yeah, for a guy who repeatedly vows to stop watching the “rigged NBA”, he seems to comment a lot on the NBA.

  13. wfon1 - Oct 31, 2012 at 12:35 AM

    doesnt seem like a dis to me. he was just focused on the game while Allen greeted his ex coaches.

    • guyaneserj - Oct 31, 2012 at 9:20 AM

      LOL.. REALLY? If that makes u sleep better at night… then do you! But let’s be REAL, KG knew exactly what he was doing!!

  14. asublimeday - Oct 31, 2012 at 2:45 AM

    I wish Garnett had punched him in the head.

    And I’m not a celtics fan. Ray Allen is a whore.

    • hehateme2 - Oct 31, 2012 at 6:40 AM

      your tears taste great!

  15. doublezero74 - Oct 31, 2012 at 6:55 AM

    The Heat has a great night no doubt, but that wasn’t Celtics Defense last night. They got a lot of new people to get into their system. No more 120 point nights. That being said the Heat look cohesive and confident. Can’t stand wade’s antics but he delivered.

  16. mgp1219 - Oct 31, 2012 at 7:37 AM

    Kevin Garnett = douchebag.

  17. thetruth702 - Oct 31, 2012 at 8:17 AM

    Lol quit your crying dude. The media are the ones talkin about it every 2 seconds not the boston fans or players. KG didnt say anything about anybody, just ignored allen. And you feed it by whining about it more on this. And who doesn’t like a rivalry? Quit your cryin

    • bozosforall - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:30 PM

      Coming from a crybaby Boston fan, that’s a laugh.

  18. thetruth702 - Oct 31, 2012 at 8:19 AM

    I cant believe they let you have your own blog.. Dude come on. You act like KG is gonna go be hid best friend and all this crap. Is it a rule to have to be friends with someone you are fighting against to get a ring? There should be more people like KG in the NBA thag show that type of emotion. You liberals are so whiny

  19. thetruth702 - Oct 31, 2012 at 8:22 AM

    Hehateme 2

    You’re a joke.. Hahaha.

    • bozosforall - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:31 PM

      not near as big a joke as you crybaby Puh C’s fans, onetoof702.

  20. mgp1219 - Oct 31, 2012 at 8:33 AM

    The NBA needs more people like Kevin Garnett?? You mean more people who punch other players in the balls while the player is in the process of taking a 3 pointer and then slides his foot under the shooter so when said shooter lands he twists his ankle? Or, do you mean more people who do knuckle pushups on the court during a stop in the game just to call attention to themselves? Yeah, just what the NBA nrrds more of these days.

  21. paulhargis53 - Oct 31, 2012 at 8:53 AM

    What KG did is what KG has done since he came into the league. He’s consistently old school.

    Whining about his hard fouls and excusing the litany of questionable behavior of Wade is the height of hypocrisy. I wouldn’t expect anymore out of a fanbase with a majority of coattails in its midst. It’s 1 game out of 82. I know you heat fans have a 1/2 pack of rolaids in your boxers, but its a long season.

    You aren’t winning all 82, and you won’t win every game against Boston, pace yourselves, you don’t want to shoot your wads early and be disappointed like your life partners are on a nightly basis.

  22. infectorman - Oct 31, 2012 at 8:53 AM

    Listen to the mouths emanating from Miami.
    Win a 2nd title and all of the sudden they are the Celtics of the 60’s, Lakers of the 80’s or the Bulls of the 90’s

    hate to lay this on ya, but Lebron will NEVER be considered Michaels, Magics or Bill Russell’s equal.
    So have your fun and talk your lame, weak-a$$ smack.
    You’re just solidifying your national reputation as the worst punk fans in the country

    • bozosforall - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:38 PM

      No, the worst punk fans will always be the New England fan base, AIDSinfectedman.

  23. lastdukestreetking - Oct 31, 2012 at 9:31 AM

    KG – phoniest tough guy in NBA history. Even Boston slurper Bob Ryan called him a poseur this morning.

  24. mvp43 - Oct 31, 2012 at 10:57 AM

    I hate Boston and Miami, but now I hate Boston more.

  25. trickybastard - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:29 AM

    How ironic is this when the media asks if we are done with this when they are the ones to perpetuate it. Here’s an article about it. Ok, now we are done
