Some animosity in the NBA

From where I sit it looks like a couple of boys need to grow up...

Yes, we know Ray Allen bolted from the Celtics to the Heat. Sure, it was a painful departure...as a free agent. He had no reason to stay in Boston, other than he was, emphases on was, buddies with Garnett and Pierce. He left in an effort to keep winning. And he has. He's become a big part of the Heat. Including making several key shots in last year's final. On the other hand, it's kind of refreshing to see some animosity in the NBA. Let's face, it the vast majority of basketball games at any level have little in the way of hatred going on. Players greet each other with a hug and a handshake before and after every game. I get it. You are friends with a good chunk of other players, but really do you need to do this during the pre-game? Even NFLers can wait until after the game. Hockey players will fight with their friends. Literally. For all Garnett and Pierce need to get over themselves, this might help sell some tickets and that's never a bad thing.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
