Paul Pierce has nothing but love and respect for his former Boston Celtics teammate, Ray Allen.
The Celtics’ 2008 championship team was nothing short of extraordinary. But off the court, the team dealt with multiple issues. Allen always seemed to be at the center of the controversy.
The former Celtics’ sharp-shooter, of course, left Boston to join LeBron James and the Miami Heat back in the day. That didn’t sit well with the rest of the Celtics. It was a blindside move and essentially obliterated any relationship Allen shared with Celtics players. Pierce appears to have gotten over it years later, though.
The former NBA great called Allen his “brother” in a recent video.
“We always gonna be brothers,” Pierce said with Allen right by his side.
Take a look.

If you’re a Celtics fan, this has to be awesome to see. It’s been an awkward few years regarding Ray Allen’s relationship with the rest of the Celtics’ 2008 championship team. At least Paul Pierce and Allen are friends now.
We have a feeling Kevin Garnett doesn’t feel the same, though. Out of all of Allen’s former teammates, Garnett has held the biggest grudge. It will be interesting to see whether or not he ever gets over it.
Pierce, meanwhile, will be celebrating all weekend long. He has been inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame. The festivities will continue on into Sunday.
