    Blame to go around for Ray Allen leaving Celtics

    Felt slighted before departing

    ORLANDO – In one of his final acts of professionalism as a Celtic, Ray Allen remained silent during all the chatter as the team struggled to a losing record at the All-Star break.

    If you recall, Allen began the Celtics’ abbreviated 2011-12 campaign as their best player, shooting 48.5 percent from the 3-point line during the first half and clamoring for more contract security. All his remarkable shooting earned him was a return trip to the trading block in March, a sign of disrespect to Allen and an indication it was time to leave Boston. He ended up signing with the Heat on Friday.
