Would you want to work for a company that consistently offered your position to other people, demoted you, then signed someone to work the same job as you before you'd even left? What about if all of that happened plus you really hated the guy who shared your cubicle? Yeah I thought so.
It's funny, he went to Miami to win championships on a team tailor-made for his style of play and he's criticised for "chasing rings" by fans who also would've criticised him for staying because he "only cares about the money and not winning". What would you have expected him to do? He'll get more minutes in Miami in a team that's a better fit for him with a better chance to win AND he took significantly less money to do so. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
i don't see you refuting anything i said...in any case i have nothing against allen for moving to miami, i just meant he is looking for a quick ring or two before retirement and miami offers him the best chance for that, the issues with doc rivers and rondo just gave him a plausible excuse...
