Ray Allen is Taking His Talents to South Beach

The NBA's all-time leading three point shooter, Ray Allen, has agreed to sign with the Miami Heat, instead of the Boston Celtics.  This ends the era of the "Big Three" in Boston with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, where the three of them won a NBA Championship.  Ray Allen has decided to take less money to go to a team that is rivals with the Celtics, to have a better chance at winning a NBA Championship.  This was a great move by Ray Allen to go to the Heat because now they will be heavily favored to win the NBA Championship next year.  If Ray Allen would have gone back to the Celtics he would have had to watch Avery Bradley start in his spot, and he would have had to share minutes off the bench with Jason Terry.  It didn't seem like the Celtics even wanted him back since, they were willing to trade him last year at the deadline, and since they already agreed to a deal with Jason Terry.  The Heat wanted him and knew if they were lucky enough to get him that he would be a huge addition to their team.  Ray Allen made the best decision by signing with the Heat because he will now be on a team that gives him the best chances at winning another NBA Championship.
