Class Act: NBA Player Ray Allen Thanks Boston Celtics Fans With Full Page Ad

Rucuss staffJuly 16, 2012

Former Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen shocked fans when he decided to jump ship and sign with the Miami Heat.

Allen took less from the Heat than what the Celtics were reportedly offering. The 36-year old signed a three-year deal for just under $10 million while Boston was offering $12 million over two years. There was talk that a rift between Allen and Rajon Rondo might’ve added to his desire to depart.

But before Allen, who helped the Celtics win a title in 2008, left for good he wanted to thank the fans. A week after signing his contract, Allen took out a full-page advertisement in Sunday’s Boston Globe to express his appreciation for his tenure.

It was a class act move by Allen. Hopefully, he won’t bet booed too much when he plays for Boston’s enemy next season.
