Ray Allen claims his Facebook account was hacked after controversial post

Ray Allen claims his Facebook account was hacked after controversial post

Ray Allen didn't do it. Or, so he says.

A controversial post appeared on the former Boston Celtics guard's Facebook page. But his publicist told ESPN's Rachel Nichols that Allen did not hit publish on that post. His account got hacked, and his Facebook page is no longer verified.

The post showed a photo of Allen, donning a Miami Heat jersey, elbowing his way past Rajon Rondo, donning a Boston Celtics jersey.

A caption read: "The power to Push limits."

This post came after Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins and Glen Davis appeared on Kevin Garnett’s "Area21" show on Monday night. The elephant in the room was the absence of Allen.

"Everybody's asking us, ‘Where's Ray?'" Garnett said at the start of the show. "People don't understand that this is real life for us . . . and the situation with Ray is very sensitive."

But while Garnett started vague, the former Celtics began to get specific. They aired their grievances with Allen, whose relationship with his teammates went sour (and was never particularly fruitful) before he left Boston for the Miami Heat.

"It almost felt like, you're married and you come home and the wife and the kids and the clothes [are] out of the house and you didn't get a note or nothing," Pierce said of Allen's departure. "You didn't get an Instagram or Tweet or nothing. They just gone. Like, man, that's wrong."

Report: Kyrie Irving to undergo knee exam Thursday


Report: Kyrie Irving to undergo knee exam Thursday

The second opinion on Kyrie Irving’s sore left knee will be done on Thursday, according to the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett.

Irving, who has missed the last four games, is expected to decide between having a surgical procedure performed to help alleviate some of the soreness, or continue to manage it with rest.


During the 2015 NBA Finals, Irving suffered a fractured left kneecap injury which was the beginning of Irving’s left knee issues.

While Irving has had soreness of some form during various stretches of play this season, Celtics coach Brad Stevens has seen him making progress recently.

“That knee is still sore,” Stevens said. “He’s worked really hard to manage it throughout the entire season. He’s had some pretty good days recently. I’m encouraged by the big picture.”

But Stevens has made it clear that he supports Irving getting a second opinion, adding that Irving’s absence is due to the knee being too sore for him to play at a level he’s accustomed to.

“He’s out because of knee soreness, not because we’re choosing to rest him,” Stevens said. “That’s the bottom line. Again, we want him to feel 110 percent. He wants to feel 110 percent. Obviously, we’re fortunate we created a cushion early on in the year with playoffs and everything else. This is not one of those situations where we’re choosing to rest someone; it’s because he has a sore knee.”
