J.J. Barea Ejected After Shoving Ray Allen, Calls Him A "Fucking Pussy"

The Miami Heat easily dispatched with the Minnesota Timberwolves 97-81 tonight but early in the fourth quarter things were still relatively close. Then J.J. Barea decided to go rogue. As you can see, he did not appreciate a little elbow/shove from Ray Allen that went uncalled and so, after collecting himself, caught… »3/04/13 10:39pm3/04/13 10:39pm

Kevin Garnett Straight Up Ignored Ray Allen When He Came Over To Say Hi

We knew Ray Allen's departure from Boston was something less than amicable. Allen dropped hints about how he had been forced out of Boston, meanwhile Doc Rivers made it known that Allen refused to return any of his or Danny Ainge's phone calls. What should have been a pure business decision (Allen wanted more money… »10/31/12 10:22am10/31/12 10:22am
