It’s been nearly 10 years since Ray Allen turned his back on the Boston Celtics to join LeBron James and the Miami Heat. His ex-Celtics teammates have since held a grudge on Allen for his betrayal, but it looks like this decade-long beef could soon come to an end.

Celtics icon Paul Pierce recently hinted that a change-of-heart might be coming for at least one member of Boston’s championship-winning superteam. According to Pierce, Kevin Garnett could be taking a softer stance with regards to his ill will against Ray Allen:

For his part, Pierce had already settled his score with Ray Allen several years ago. Pierce was absolutely livid when he first learned about Allen’s decision to jump ship, but he has since been able to forgive his former teammate for his indiscretion.

Kevin Garnett is now 45-years-old and he isn’t getting any younger. Time appears to have helped soften KG’s bitterness towards his ex-teammate and at least according to Pierce, a much-anticipated reconciliation could be forthcoming.
