Paul Pierce discusses his issues with former Celtics teammate Ray Allen, the state of their relationship today

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

Former NBA stars Paul Pierce and Ray Allen have had a famously rocky relationship since Allen left Boston and joined the Miami Heat. The two won a title together with the Celtics in 2008, but Allen’s decision to defect to the rival Heat in free agency in 2012 didn’t sit well with Pierce, and the relationship between the two soured as a result. The rift remains a spicy topic among NBA fans, and during a recent appearance on the All The Smoke Podcast hosted by former NBA players Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Pierce explained why he had an issue with Allen in the first place and how he feels about his former teammate today.

“This is my whole deal with Ray. One, he went to our rival,” Pierce said.
