Ray Allen has made himself the enemy of Boston Celtics fans for switching to one of the most-hated teams in the NBA; the Miami Heat.

Allen, the 36-year-old 3-point shooting specialist, decided to take less money for the chance to win a second NBA title.

He won an NBA championship with Boston in 2008.

Eventhough Boston could pay him more money, Allen, the former UConn basketball star, told the Heat that he would accept their $3 million a year offer and leave Beantown after five years.

Due to the NBA’s moratorium, Allen cannot officially sign any contract until this coming Wednesday.

Allen, who has also played for Milwaukee and Seattle, made a career-best 45 percent of his 3-point attempts this past season, has made an NBA-record 2,718 3-point baskets.
