It's really Micky Arison's account, not a fake one. So, unless #20 refers to Steve Colter, the Heat have agreed to terms with Ray Allen. ~David Aldridge

Privately, Ray Allen had insisted to people that he didn't believe the city of Boston would be too hard on him for signing with Miami.

One source close to Ray Allen said in past few hours, "Ray's thinking about another ring, golf, sun as a way to end his career."

This, after Heat owner Mickey Arison just tweeted a "Welcome to Miami No. 20."

Ray Allen has informed Boston that he has decided to sign with Miami, league source tells Y! Sports.


Ray, you just blew an opportunity to win another one for boston and get your jersey hung up with legends. Wrong choice, man, wrong choice.

I know it is going to be rough seeing him in a Heat jersey but that doesn't take away what he has done for this team since he was traded here before the 2007-08 season. I wish him everything but a championship.

yep.

I appreciate that I never have to watch him try to create off of the dribble again. Similarly, I appreciate that I no longer have to watch the peek-a-boo offense.

I have been allen's biggest supporter but if this is true it is TREASON. Heat are the biggest bunch of punks.

I appreciate the championship he brought in 2008, but what he did today is no excuse. He's worse than Mark Blount, IMO.

Owner Micky Arison sends out a tweet saying veteran shooting guard Ray Allen will sign with the Heat, giving the NBA champions a big boost.

BY BARRY JACKSON
BJACKSON@MIAMIHERALD.COM
A splendid summer just got even better for the Heat.

Ray Allen, the NBA’s all-time leader in three-point baskets, is leaving Boston to join the NBA champion, according to a tweet from Heat owner Micky Arison.

“It's 2:30 a.m. in London and I was just woken up with great news. Welcome to the family - No. 20,” Arison tweeted Friday night.

Allen rejected a larger financial offer from the Celtics to accept a multiyear deal from the Heat -- a move that bolsters Miami’s bench and weakens one of its chief Eastern Conference rivals.

Allen, a 10-time All-Star, turns 37 on July 20, but shows no sign of diminished skills. He set a career mark by making 44 percent of his three-point attempts two years ago, then topped that by shooting 45 percent on threes this season, which ranked fourth in the league.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade lobbied Allen to join the Heat in recent days, and president Pat Riley made a convincing sales pitch in a Thursday meeting with Allen in Miami.
“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
― Aristotle, (384–322 BC)

Allen believes the capital he's built up playing for UConn and the Celtics would supercede signing with Miami. He's probably misjudged that.

Well said. The inside scoop on this will be interesting. Ray was obviously pi$$ed about the trade talks, IMO.

BURN HIS JERSEY EVERY MEMBER OF CELTIC NATION!

He could retire as a Celtic legend.. There could be no next player in Celtics history who would dress number 20.. He said no.

Thank you Ray for nice 5 seasons.. But today you basically throw away all these years.. You are only humorous RING CHASER!

I used to love you Ray.... Now I hate you... NO RESPECT.. The betrayal is never forgive!

The deterioration of Ray Allen's relationship with Rajon Rondo played a significant factor in his leaving for Miami, several sources tell Y!


F Rondo too.
