RAY Allen’s camp insisted that the retired cager was not the one who posted a photo of himself in a Miami Heat uniform guarded by former Boston Celtics teammate Rajon Rondo in response to being uninvited to the reunion of the 2008 championship winning core.
On Monday (Tuesday, Manila time), Kevin Garnett hosted former Celtics teammates Paul Pierce, Rondo, Kendrick Perkins and Glen Davis on his ‘Area 21’ segment in TNT’s NBA playoffs coverage as they reminisced on their 2008 title run.
Allen was conspicuously missing and the group later on discussed why, saying the pain lingers after the sharpshooter moved to rival Miami in 2012.
But like Allen’s many crushing daggers in his stellar career, the two-time NBA champ’s verified Facebook page dropped a fiery response with the said photo a day after the Celtics reunion, with the caption ‘The power to push limits.’
Rachel Nichols of ESPN’s The Jump managed to capture the post of the verified page.
Last night the stars of the '08 Celtics title team went on TNT but specifically left out Ray Allen. This morning, he responded (on Facebook) pic.twitter.com/zTi6G3wH5g— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) May 9, 2017
But Allen’s publicist has since reached out to Nichols, saying the account was hacked and that Facebook has already unverified the page due to the hack.
Ray Allen's publicist now tells me Ray's verified Facebook page was hacked, that he didn't post Celtics-clapback pic. FB unverified the page https://t.co/ELMW5fx4u0— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) May 9, 2017
Meanwhile, Bleacher Report's Tim Daniels reported that Allen's representatives have told him the Facebook page was a fake account.
Real, fake or hacked is up for debate. But what’s certain is that the discord between Allen and his ex-Celtics teammates remains with no sign of reconciliation anytime soon even after all these years since they parted ways.
