BOSTON (CBS) – Heat guard Ray Allen took out a full-page ad in Sunday’s Boston Globe to thank Celtics fans for five years of memories.
“Dear Celtics fans,
For the past five years, my family and I took great pride in calling Boston home. We have loved living in this city, being members of the Celtics family and being part of your community. These memories will be cherished forever.
From my heart, THANK YOU Boston for this incredible journey.”

In five years with the Celtics, Allen won an NBA Title and nearly won a second. In 46 games for Boston last season, Allen averaged 14.2 points per game on 46-percent shooting from the field and a career-high 45-percent from three-point range.
The Heat are Allen’s fourth team in his NBA career. He played for Milwaukee and Seattle before landing in Boston in the summer of 2007.
