Paul Pierce Talks Ray Allen Missing Celtics Jersey Retirement Ceremony

Paul Pierce isn’t holding any ill will toward Ray Allen for skipping his jersey retirement ceremony Sunday. 

Appearing on Monday’s edition of ESPN’s The Jump, Pierce said he isn’t angry with Allen and joked he was more annoyed former Boston Celtics swingman and current free agent Tony Allen didn’t show up. 

"I’m more upset that the other Allen wasn’t there—Tony Allen. Our young guy," Pierce said, per For The Win’s Andrew Joseph. "These are guys that I talk to every week. I’m more upset at the other Allen because he was just waived. He’s at home. He could have been here. 

"A lot of guys weren’t there, and he [Ray Allen] lives, where, in Miami? To each his own, but I have no problem with that."
