Paul Pierce is still a little salty about his former teammate Ray Allen leaving the Boston Celtics, to join the Miami Heat:

Doc Rivers blamed himself for Ray Allen’s shocking departure to South Beach this summer. And Ray’s former teammate Paul Pierce admits that he’s feeling a little salty about the whole thing. From the Boston Celtics’ team website (via ESPN): “Ray made the best decision for him,’ Pierce said. ‘That’s what it’s all about: You get in these situations, you become a free agent, and you make a decision based on what’s best for you and your family. Ray will always be a brother for me. If it wasn’t for him, I probably wouldn’t be wearing a championship ring. So the things he was able to do for this organization, will never be forgotten.’ Asked if he’s talked to Allen since he spurned Boston’s two-year, $12 million offer to sign with Miami for half the value, Pierce said, ‘A couple texts. I’m a little bitter that he went to Miami, but he’s still a brother of mine.’ 

Well, at least Pierce is aware of all the good thing that Ray Allen accomplished for the Celtics. It's understandable that Pierce is a little bitter, because he still sees the Heat as his worse enemy.
