As Ray Allen enters Hall of Fame, did Kevin Garnett extend an olive branch?

As Ray Allen enters Hall of Fame, did Kevin Garnett extend an olive branch?

Since leaving for the Miami Heat in 2012, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen have not spoken much, if at all. On Friday morning, did KG crack the window open to his former teammate the morning before the Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony?

Allen gave Garnett and ex-Celtics captain Paul Pierce a shoutout in his Hall of Fame induction speech Friday night in Springfield, Mass.

The complicated history of "The Big Three" has had lots of twists and turns. On the "Anything Is Podable" 2008 Celtics podcast with Kyle Draper, Allen spoke of how his last season in Boston left him with a feeling of not being wanted...

Allen and Paul Pierce did mend their relationship in a trip to China last summer, but Allen has still been disconnected from Garnett and Rondo.

Allen joins the long list of those associated with the Celtics organization in the Hall.

Kyrie Irving to Lakers? Jackie MacMullan 'very strongly' believes that won't happen

Kyrie Irving to Lakers? Jackie MacMullan 'very strongly' believes that won't happen

We're more than a month away from the beginning of NBA free agency, but the Kyrie Irving-to-L.A. rumors are swirling.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst added some fuel to that fire by saying he believes Irving is "considering" the Lakers as a destination. LeBron James "liking" a photoshopped image of Irving in a Lakers uniform added even more.

But despite all the talk of Irving possibly reuniting with his ex-teammate, ESPN's Jackie MacMullan said on the latest Hoops Collective Podcast she doesn't see it happening.

“I did a little digging around and my feeling is very strongly that while LeBron and Kyrie have kissed and made up, that Kyrie is not going there,” MacMullan said. “He’s just not. I just don’t believe it. And I think people close to him just don’t believe it either.”

MacMullan's comments echo her ESPN colleague Stephen A. Smith's dismissal of the rumors from earlier this month.

We'll have to wait a while before the Irving rumors come to an end. NBA free agency begins on June 30.
