When Ray Allen left the Boston Celtics in 2012 to join the Miami Heat, certain members of the C's spoke out against him fleeing the team. Now that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Doc Rivers have left Boston themselves, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade think they were hypocritical in calling out Ray.
NBA players are a lot like stocks, constantly going up and down in value. Each year, some players inevitably take a turn for the worse, as age, injuries or complacency set in. Let's take a look at some players who are in danger of falling off this upcoming season.
Kevin Garnett was traded to the Brooklyn Nets, and is now making his departure from Boston official as he's putting up his $4.85 million New England mansion up for sale.
On a 12 acre lot, this 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom home has 11,000 square feet in living space. Hope Garnett is prepared to downsize because $5 million will get a sick place in New York, but it certainly won't be on 12 freaking acres.

NBA contests can be some of the most heated competitions in all of sports. Incredible abilities and enormous egos clash on the biggest of stages on a nightly basis. With so much adrenaline, testosterone, and sheer will power, it's only natural for elbows to be thrown, flagrant fouls to occur and occasionally, brawls to break out.
Kevin Garnett is a passionate player who has never been one to hide his emotion, and as a gesture to a fallen teammate he will wear number 2 on his jersey while playing for the Brooklyn Nets.
Previously Garnett had worn number 21 with the Minnesota Timberwolves, and number 5 with the Celtics as number 21 was retired. As an ode to Malik Sealy (1970-2000), who was Garnett’s teammate in Minnesota and tragically died in a car accident when a drunk driver hit him head on as Sealy was driving home from Garnett’s birthday party.
