Bad blood between Brooklyn and Miami
Posted at 07:10 PM ET
Before the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets’ game on Thursday night, LeBron James said to reporters that he thought the Celtics owed Ray Allen an apology for criticizing him for going to Miami. James mentioned that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, who were incredibly critical of their former teammate at the time, left for Brooklyn a year later, writes Nina Mandell of USA Today. Garnett later replied to James’ comments, “Tell LeBron to worry about Miami. It has nothing to do with Celtic business,” he said. Garnett also argued that he had been traded, not signed with another team as a free agent (though he did have to waive his no-trade clause). Pierce was asked to comment on the subject, his reply, “I left Bostson?.” The Nets beat the Heat in the preseason game, 86-62.
Trivia Answer: In a triple OT game in 1983, Denver’s Kiki Vandeweghe (56) and Alex English (42) had 98 against Detroit.
