In response to Karllost's comment:
Rays friends and family thought he wasnt being dealt with properly.. way to pass the buck Ray.
My feeling is Ray saw the writing on the wall with Avery. The young kid nobody liked suddenly became a valuable player...valuable enough to start in front of Ray. He didnt sign with the C's cause he knew there was a good chance he'd be coming off the bench imo. I dont think his ego was handling that idea well.
I am sure the constant trading talk had a lot to do with it. Of course I read that we were even ready to give him a no trade clause. I think Ray ended up taking a lot of polish off of my perception of him. I think I can throw the class part out the window now.
Most people can be classy and nice when they're sitting on top of the world. It's when you hit those bumps in the road, you see the true character come out. I still believe Ray is a classy guy but I also feel he's damagin his reputation with these comments, even if he truly feels it.
He said Miami was a better choice based upon what the team was doing... I think that makes it clear, Ray didnt want to be second banana behind AB
..and Ray, dont cry over boo's.. its every fans right to BOO... they pay dearly for that right.. and they are not employed to be your cheerleaders .... fan, short for fanatic.. take the good with the bad, along with the millions and millions of $$$$ all NBA fans have helped you earn..
"We had to go. Miami was a better choice for us based on what the team was doing, so it wasn't -- don't boo me. Boo the team, in a sense."
