When Ray Allen chose to join the Heat, you can tell this is going to be one of the best seasons we have seen yet. 2011 was an amazing season, but 2012-13 season will take the throne. With Lebron James winning his first championship. Now they acquire Ray Allen. Ray Allen told the Miami Heat on Friday night that he intends to accept their contract offer and leave Boston after five seasons, even though the Celtics could pay him about twice as much as the reigning NBA champions will be able to next season. Miami could only offer Allen the mini mid-level, worth about $3 million a year.
Heat owner Micky Arison tweeted the news just after 9:30 p.m., or about 2:30 a.m. Saturday in Europe, where Arison has been for several days.
”I was just woken up with great news,” Arison wrote. ”Welcome to the family.” Arison ended the tweet by making mention of Allen’s jersey No. 20, and didn’t mention the NBA’s leading 3-point shooter by name.
