Yesterday, TNT reunited former Celtics champions Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins, and Glen Davis together on Kevin Garnett’s Area 21 program. They discussed the “sour” breakup with Ray Allen. Perkins noted that it wasn’t that Allen left the Celtics for the rival Heat, but how he did it.
“It was more than basketball for us… It felt like a sour breakup.”
