LOOK: Estranged ex-Celtics teammates Pierce, Allen ‘bury the hatchet’
After winning an NBA Championship together in 2008, former Boston Celtics teammates Paul Pierce and Ray Allen did not have an amicable parting of ways, as the latter left for the Miami Heat in 2012.
But after admitting “being hurt” by the sharpshooter’s decision to jump ship during an appearance on TNT’s “Area 21” back in May, it seems that Pierce has let bygones be bygones and reunited with Allen.
The estranged former comrades posed for a photo together, while appearing at the Super Penguin Basketball Celebrity Game at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center in China over the weekend.
“Time to get the band back together,” “The Truth” wrote on Instagram, tagging the rest of the “Big 4” members, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo.
“No matter what happen we all formed a special bond that can never b broken,” he added, using the hashtags #burythehatchet and #onceacelticalwaysaceltic.
Meanwhile, the pair have both walked away from the NBA, with Pierce recently signing a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Celtics.
Allen, on the other hand, went on to capture another NBA title in South Beach before calling it quits. Khristian Ibarrola /ra
