Ray Allen

  1. Garnett fires back at LeBron, says to mind his own business

    Oct 18, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    We may actually have a little Heat/Nets rivalry brewing. Preseason talk matters usually matters about as much as preseason games, but the tension built up in years past between LeBron James and Kevin Garnett as led to a few shots across the bow this preseason. That could lead to some actual drama during the regular…

  2. LeBron, Wade call out former Celtics who dissed Ray Allen then left Boston themselves

    Oct 17, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    One year ago at this time the story we were all sick of was the “feud” between Ray Allen and his former teammates on the Boston Celtics. Allen didn’t feel respected or part of the Celtics plans (Avery Bradley had taken his starting job) and so he took less money to bolt for Miami. He…

  3. Mike Brown a little frustrated with Dion Waiters’ defense

    Oct 16, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Dion Waiters, Gerald Henderson

    Mike Brown is a defensive minded coach. That is his reputation. If you see the Cavaliers as a playoff team in the East (and I do) then you are counting on a healthy Kyrie Irving, somebody stepping up in the frontcourt, and Mike Brown improving a defense that was 27th in the NBA in points…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Last season: The Heat won their second straight championship in an epic seven-game battle against a Spurs team that had every chance to take home the title instead. On their way, Miami flirted with history by stringing together a 27-game winning streak that lasted late into March, and finished the season by winning an incredible…

  5. Refs say Rick Barry is wrong, Ray Allen didn’t travel on critical shot in Game 6 of Finals

    Sep 26, 2013, 4:52 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    Ray Allen‘s shot at the end of regulation to send Game 6 of the Finals into overtime was as clutch as they come, especially considering those now famous yellow ropes in place along the sidelines that were there in preparation for the Spurs’ trophy presentation. NBA Hall-of-Famer Rick Barry has turned it into a mini-controversy…

  6. Kobe says he would love Derek Fisher to come back to Lakers

    Sep 26, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    This is why you don’t let current players act as your GM. Derek Fisher is back with the Thunder this season on a one-year minimum contract, and after that he is expected to retire. Fisher was one of the great role players of his era and had a skill set that fit beautifully with Phil…

  7. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round. Remember, the year before they had taken Miami seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe this version of the Celtics wasn’t going…

  8. 2005 Phil Jackson commercial foreshadowed 2013 Heat Fans at Finals Game 6

    Sep 12, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    Back during the 2005 NBA Finals, while the San Antonio Spurs were beating the Detroit Pistons in 7 games, this Toyota commercial was running. It featured Phil Jackson appearing as a psuedo-Zen sounding apparition admonishing Heat fans who left the game early and missed a great comeback. Fast forward to Game 6 of the 2013 NBA…

  9. Kevin Garnett says he showed Rondo how to lead Celtics

    Sep 12, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Celtics' Garnett talks with Rondo during a time out against Knicks in the second half during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Rajon Rondo was arguably the best player on the Celtics the past two seasons, but he was not the team leader. Kevin Garnett was, with Paul Pierce (and a couple seasons back Ray Allen) in that mix as well. Now, Rondo has been thrust into the roll of unquestioned leader of a young, rebuilding Boston…

  10. Everybody keeps asking Ray Allen about “The Shot.” He’s cool with that.

    Sep 10, 2013, 2:16 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    If you were Ray Allen, wouldn’t you want to talk about the biggest shot of your career? Allen hit a step-back three with 5.2 seconds left that tied Game 6 of the NBA Finals and saved the Miami Heat’s title chances. Miami had looked dead in the water seconds before but Chris Bosh got the…

  11. Report: Miami Heat considering signing Michael Beasley

    Sep 7, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    heat beasley

    There’s no way to put this mildly: The Michael Beasley free agent signing by the Phoenix Suns last summer was a disastrous one for the franchise. It led to the firing of head coach Alvin Gentry midway through last season, and when things had completely fallen apart by year’s end, it resulted in the firing…

  12. Rick Barry says Ray Allen travelled on key Game 6 three

    Sep 6, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    Talk with a group of basketball fans – it doesn’t have to be too large – and discuss that play, Michael Jordan’s final shot with the Bulls, the basket that won the 1998 NBA Finals over the Jazz. Someone will claim Jordan pushed off Bryon Russell.* Unlike nearly every other all-time great shot in NBA…

  13. Watch reaction of arena full of Spurs fans to Ray Allen’s Game 6 three (VIDEO)

    Sep 5, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    It was the defining moment of these NBA Finals — Miami was down three in Game six and were seconds away from losing the series to the San Antonio Spurs. LeBron James missed a three, but Chris Bosh got the rebound, Ray Allen hit the step back three and the rest is history. In San…

  14. Stephen Curry dribbles while juggling waffle fries (VINE)

    Sep 3, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Curry catches a break against the San Antonio Spurs in the second overtime period during Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference Semifinals basketball playoff series in San Antonio

    I’ll be honest: I have not tried Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries (I just don’t eat there). I’m sure they are delicious. And fat free. Stephen Curry is working on his game this offseason by practicing dribbling while juggling waffle fries. Which sounds strange, but makes as much sense to me as dribbling through an airport, putting…

  15. John Salley talks about veganism and the NBA

    Sports Spectacular 2013 - Inside

    The NBA can be a pretty testosterone driven world — and in that world men eat meat. Lots of it. Maybe boiled chicken breasts, maybe steaks, Kobe Bryant mixes in the odd In-n-Out burger as his vice (which is better than 5 Guys, but that’s another debate for another day). But there are vegetarians in…

  16. Boris Diaw says he still thinks about Finals loss to Heat

    Aug 27, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs' Duncan congratulates teammate Diaw during a time out during first quarter play against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    The Finals series between the Heat and the Spurs was epic not only because it took all seven games to decide, but because of the extremely high overall level of play that was displayed by both teams throughout. It’s also likely to be among the most painful to remember by the losing team’s players. San…

  17. Miami Heat top 10 plays of the 2013 season (VIDEO)

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    We all knew what would be coming in at No. 1 on this compilation the folks at the NBA put together of the Miami Heat’s top plays of the 2013 season. But there were at least a few that had slipped my mind here given all that transpired. I only have two issues with this…

  18. More schedule leaks: Nets to host Heat in home opener, Knicks to host Heat Feb. 1

    Jul 31, 2013, 7:47 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    The full 2013-14 NBA schedule is likely to be released some time in the next couple of weeks, but there are certain entities (like the league’s broadcast partners, for example) that have seen as close to what will be the final draft as possible. That’s one reason some of the marquee dates are beginning to…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than we like to debate In-n-Out vs. Five Guys (it’s In-n-Out, obviously)…. •…

  20. Pierce, Garnett talk Rondo’s adjustment to injury, very different team

    Jul 22, 2013, 9:55 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. The veteran leaders Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are long gone, which was already going to make this a strange season for Rondo — they have gone from a team that thought about titles to rebuilding. Add in the fact Rondo is coming back off…

  21. Rick Barry says Ray Allen traveled on critical Game 6 three

    Jul 19, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    It was the most iconic moment of this year’s dramatic NBA Finals — San Antonio was seconds away from winning the NBA title and Miami was trying to force overtime in Game 6 with the Heat down three. LeBron James missed a three but Chris Bosh got the rebound and passed to Ray Allen, who…

  22. You can keep talking about changes Miami should make, Ray Allen says team not listening

    Jul 10, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    The Miami Heat won 27 games in a row during the regular season, finishing the year with 66 wins and the best record in the NBA. They were pushed to seven games twice, but they are now the back-to-back NBA Champions. So it was a little stunning in the wake of the Heat win to…

  23. McDonald’s taught Ray Allen an early lesson about conditioning that helped shape an 18-year career

    Jul 10, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Ray Allen

    Ray Allen just opted in for an 18th NBA season at age 38. That decision was certainly made easier by the fact his 17th season ended with a championship ring, one the Miami Heat would not have won without him. Plus he is still effective — he averaged 10.9 points a game and shot 41.9…

  24. Report: Warriors put David Lee on trade block

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    David Lee

    The 2013 NBA playoffs were filled with many incredible moments: Ray Allen’s 3-pointer to send Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime, LeBron James making a game-winning layup with Roy Hibbert on the bench, Nate Robinson carrying the Bulls to a triple-overtime win and many more. One moment that might have appeared to deserve…

  25. Ray Allen opts in, will stay with Miami Heat next season

    Jun 28, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    Ray Allen hit the biggest shot of the Miami Heat’s season, you thought he was leaving? Allen probably could have made more money shopping himself around, but Allen has let the Heat know he is opting in and will stay with the team next season. Allen will make $3.2 million. If he opted out he…
