Say what? KG and '08 Celtics compare Ray Allen leaving to a brutal divorce

Kevin Garnett had half of his 2008 championship Boston Celtics team in studio for "Area 21" on TNT Thursday night and they spent a TV eternity – six minutes – ripping on former teammate, Ray Allen.

"People don't understand that this is real life for us," Garnett said. "The situation with Ray is very sensitive. When Ray decided to go to the Heat, I feel like he moved on."

Paul Pierce compared it to a "sour" breakup with a girlfriend of 19 years before expanding it to a devastating divorce.

"It almost felt like you married and you come home and the wife and the kids and the clothes and everything is out of the house," Pierce said. "You didn't get a note or nothing. You didn't get a tweet or an Instagram or nothing. They just gone."

"It ain't what Ray did. It's how he did it," said Kendrick Perkins. "That's what caused the problem ... it's on Ray to break the ice."

Glen "Big Baby" Davis is mad at Allen because he went "ring hopping" when the core of the Celtics thought they could still contend.

Rajon Rondo sat there and said nothing.

“It was more than basketball for us… It felt like a sour breakup.”
