Ray Allen didn’t make a lot of friends when he left the Celtics to join the Miami Heat, and that’s putting it lightly. One person who definitely doesn’t like him now is JJ Barea, the 6’0″ Minnesota PG who was ejected after a frustration bump. Check out the video above.
After the ejection (which was horsesh*t) you can clearly read Barea’s lips, yelling that Allen is a “f*cking p*ssy.” Here’s what the little man had to say in the post-game press conference.
“He hit me with an elbow almost close to my neck. That’s part of the game and then I just gave him a bump back. I’ve been playing in the NBA for seven years. I’ve been hit, I get hit harder than that every night. I don’t get up crying, wanting to fight. (Former Lakers center Andrew) Bynum almost knocked me out for the rest of my life. I didn’t get up crying. You know? It’s a little bump so it’s part of the game. Don’t be like that. That’s why the refs got all upset about it but it’s just a little bump. (source)”
Yeah, I’m still fuming after that Knicks loss but I think that there’s something to be said for how absolutely ridiculous the Miami Heat are. But don’t look to Wade or Allen to change, The League is to blame for protecting their favorite team.
