08:32 AM ET 04.22 | It's enough to make Ray Allen wonder whether he's got any game left. The veteran Boston Celtics sharpshooter recently lost his starting spot to Avery Bradley and then had to deal with the public disclosure of a failed trade involving Memphis guard O.J. Mayo. Allen was nearly sent to the Grizzlies last month in exchange for Mayo and a draft pick, though Celtics Coach Doc Rivers refuted one breathless report that he called Allen to inform him of the deal only to call again shortly thereafter to tell him it was off. Rivers insisted the relationship between Allen and Celtics management wasn't fractured. "Afterwards we were all good and just moved forward," Rivers told reporters.

Celtic Management = Danny Boy! Without the assist from Kevin, I don't know that anything Danny has done has been helpful to Boston. I respect Allen, in fact I respect the big four, they have all handled managements transgressions with professionalism. Rondo displayed some warranted anger but nonetheless still performed professionally. The state of the Celtic is all management induced. I will say this though.......changes have to be made and who else is gonna do it other than management.........end result, a rock and a hard place.

Bring Ray and KG to LAL so they can win another ring or two then they can retire with Kobe and hand the team over to Andrew and the newly acquired CP3!

I would love Allen as a back up in Lakerland. We need some scoring guys on the second unit big time.
