He may have gone golfing with George Lopez on the actual day that Paul Pierce's jersey was retired, but on Tuesday evening Ray Allen penned a tribute to his ex-Boston teammate that would fall within the "better late than never" category.
In the lengthy write-up, Allen congratulated Pierce for having his No. 34 put up into the TD Garden rafters this past Sunday, while also mentioning the beef that began when he signed with the Heat in free agency in 2012.
"Paul Pierce is the first guy that welcomed Kevin and me with open arms into his atmosphere from day one and we never looked back," Allen wrote. "Paul and I have spoken about our time together as teammates- going to battle night after night knowing we could count on one another and we have also talked about my decision to leave during free agency- a choice I made for my family. Despite what you may have heard or read or what is rumored- there is nothing but love. Paul and I are more interested in building bridges than putting up walls."
