Ray Allen is recruiting some help to Boston next year. He doesn’t want to be done winning rings.
With the defending Eastern Conference champions still working to fill out their roster, Ray Allen, who re-signed with the Celtics last week for two years and $20 million, said he’s talked to free agent friends about making Boston a destination.
“I think now we’re at the stage where you see all the pieces where you’ve got guys that are taking less money and they want to be a part of a winner,” Allen said. “Veteran players that are very much role players and even some guys that have been dominant players in the league that are going to take less money because they want to be a part of a situation where they have a chance to win. So I think sometimes that does include some of the guys already on the team convincing some of our friends to join us that are questioning what they’re going to do.”
Let’s just hope Ray Allen’s “free agent friends” are good players. Let’s also hope Ray is persuasive than Lebron, Wade or Bosh. Because it would really suck if Ray’s talking to Kwame Brown, Adam Morrison, Gerald Green and Patrick O’Bryant about joining the Celtics while the good ones all go to Miami.
And not that Zydrunas Ilgauskas is very good or anything, but the Celtics went after him hard and he still couldn’t resist Lebron’s sweet mating call.
