Unaccomplished, and unrecognizable, New Orleans Hornets guard Jarrett Jack called future Hall of Famer Ray Allen a “traitor” for spurning the Boston Celtics to play with the rival Miami Heat organization on Friday.
“Am I wrong for thinking ray allen is a traitor for signing with his rival team the heat? Tell me what u think!!!!!!” tweeted Jack, 28, a native of Maryland who the Denver Nuggets took out of Georgia Tech with the 22nd pick in the 2005 NBA Draft.
The 36-year-old Allen, a 10-time All-Star who helped lead Boston to the 2008 championship after being dealt to the fabled franchise by the Seattle Sonics in June 2007, can’t officially join Miami until July 11.
Allen, named the Sporting News “Good Guy” in 2000, 2001 and 2005, reportedly wearied of teaming with unlikable diva Rajon Rondo and their deteriorating relationship caused the sharpshooter to choose South Beach over Beantown.
Granted, it is entirely understandable that some Celtics fans are livid with the greatest three-point artist in NBA history for a decision that would make Benedict Arnold smirk.
Nonetheless, it is comical that a borderline scrub like Jack, who has only made the paper for getting a DUI in 2011, would have the testicular fortitude to offer his sentiments on the business of Allen and Boston.
Jarrett Jack isn’t “wrong for thinking ray allen is a traitor for signing with his rival team the heat.”
However, the low-rent ballplayer is “wrong” for thinking the public cares about his thoughts on the subject in 140 characters or less.by
