So, Bill Simmons is still very much bitter about what transpired over the summer with Ray Allen. Saying Allen drank “Traitor Juice”, which sounds unpleasant at best (if such a thing existed), shows that Simmons – a known Celtics fanatic – is clearly not over and perhaps never will get over Allen’s decision to leave the Celtics to join with their rivals in LeBron James and the gang in Miami.
It’s interesting to note what Simmons was responding to in the first place, which is that Allen has looked great in workouts, according to Erik Spoelstra. Ira Winderman of Sun Sentinel reported earlier today that Allen is still very much sore from the ankle issues that dogged him last season. Perhaps it’s nothing Allen can’t deal with, but it’s certainly a situation worth keeping an eye on.
