It’s no secret that there’s a rift between Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. When Allen chose to join the Miami Heat rather than re-sign with the Boston Celtics, Garnett and Pierce considered him a traitor. Since then Garnett and Pierce have been traded to the Brooklyn Nets and coach Doc Rivers left to coach the LA Clippers but there’s still tension amongst them. It’s something Rivers would like to end and is willing to help if he has to.
Doc Rivers is willing to mediate the fractured bond between Ray Allen and his basketball brothers who still refuse to talk to him, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
“The Ray/Paul/Kevin thing will be fixed,” Rivers told the Herald of his new lease on life after the Clippers finished their morning shootaround in Cleveland. “You forgive. Ray had to make a decision for himself. I was upset about it at the time, but he did so many good things for our team. So it will be fixed. If I have to get involved in it myself, I will, though I hope not.”
