Ray Allen on Kevin Garnett's remarks: 'That's a shame'

Miami Heat guard Ray Allen said Saturday that comments made by former Boston Celtics teammate Kevin Garnett about him taking his shooting talents to South Beach are "a shame," according to a report from ESPN's Brian Windhorst:

"That's a shame," Allen said. "I'm a good person to talk to on the phone. ... I've been in weird trade situations the last few years. You always felt you had one foot in and one foot out, so I can't worry about it."

Allen signed with the Heat approximately a month after Boston lost to Miami in Game 7 of last seasons Eastern Conference Finals. Allen's comments come a day after Garnett reportedly said he no longer has Allen's number in his phone because he's "not trying to communicate." Garnett then went on to say that he won't put his personal feelings into it and wishes Allen the best. Allen said that he and Garnett will be "friends regardless."

Allen's new teammate Dwyane Wade chimed in, saying it's just fine that Garnett is no longer talking to Allen. Wade also admitted that it was weird to see Allen in a Heat uniform at first but he's starting to get used to it:

"(Garnett) doesn't need to be talking to our team anyway, so it's all good," Dwyane Wade said. "(Allen) doesn't look too bad in a Heat uniform. At first it was weird but now I'm getting used to it."
Garnett may not be talking to Allen over the phone out of choice, but words will likely be exchanged when the two teams tip of their regular season against each other. The Heat host the Celtics on Oct. 30. Before the game, the Heat will have a ring ceremony to celebrate their 2012 title run.
