Based on the way things have gone over the years, it wouldn’t be stunning if Allen wasn’t at the Celtics’ retirement of Kevin Garnett’s No. 5 next season.
But there was another number retirement ceremony Allen was invited to and recently attended — Miami’s retirement of Dwyane Wade’s No. 3
In the course of the Heat’s celebration on Friday leading up to Saturday’s jersey retirement, Wade addressed some of his teammates in attendance — including Allen, to whom Wade said, “We thought Boston sent you over here to be a spy.”
That’s when Udonis Haslem chimed in.
“They don’t (expletive) with us, we don’t (expletive) with them,” Garnett said back in December. “But it’s cool though. It’s a mutual understanding, in which we have respect for each other. … We go to All-Star games, they’re on that side, we’re right here.”
Point is, don’t be shocked if someone responds to Haslem’s comments.
