Ray Allen to Celtics fans: ‘Get over it’
Ray Allen, the key piece of a Big Three that won the Celtics an NBA title in 2008, had one simple wish for his 42nd birthday Thursday, and that’s for Celtics fans to let it go.

When a Celtics-centric Instagram account posted a photo telling their followers to wish the sharpshooting Allen, who left the Celtics to join their top rival Heat in 2012, a happy birthday, the comments were as predictable as you’d imagine. Allen was called a traitor, a snake, and those are just some of the nicer things that were said, to be honest.
But Allen, under the verified Instagram handle of @trayfour, actually took time out of his birthday to respond to some of the more aggressive comments thrown his way.
“Y’all need to get over it!!!” Allen began, “Where were you all when the team tried to trade me. It’s a business, we go where it’s necessary just like you all do in your jobs!!!
“I will always be a Celtic no matter what any of you say. Get over it!!!!!”
A noted fan of multiple exclamation points, Allen concluded this mini-tirade by thanking those fans that did in fact wish him a happy birthday without resorting to insults.
Allen, who formally retired from the NBA last November, has since deleted the comments.
