Celtics legend Kevin Garnett breaks silence on long-lasting beef with Ray Allen

Ever since Ray Allen jumped ship and joined the Miami Heat in 2012, Kevin Garnett hasn’t exactly liked his former Boston Celtics teammate. However, it appears KG is ready to squash their beef.

In an exclusive interview with The New York Times regarding his new documentary “Kevin Garnett: Anything is Possible,” the Hall of Famer was asked about Allen and their deteriorated relationship.

“I wish Ray all the best, and I wish him and his family all the best, and whatever he’s doing, I’ll always be supportive of it.

“And that’s all I got to say,” he added.

However, the ex-Celtics big man wasn’t done there. While he offered his best wishes to Allen, Garnett also made it pretty clear that he doesn’t plan on being friends with him again:

“I think Ray’s living his life. I’m living mine. That’s where I stand on it. I think if people wanted to do something, we would have done it by now. So it’s pretty obvious where we’re at, but I wish all the best to all my teammates and people that I played with.”

Of course, KG, Allen, and Paul Pierce formed a Big 3 with the Celtics and won an NBA title in 2008. The team then lost in Game 7 of the Finals in 2010. Allen joined LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh for the 2012-13 season in South Beach and helped them win it all, beating the San Antonio Spurs.

When elected into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame earlier this year, Garnett made sure to not mention the former Celtics sharpshooter in his speech. He also purposely cropped him out of a photo on social media.

While it’s unlikely they’re going to be buddies again, it would be nice to see the two legends be civil. After all, they were a huge success together in Boston.
