NBA Rumors: LeBron James and Ray Allen a Package Deal?

To call Ray Allen a huge part of the Miami Heat‘s success over the past two seasons, would be an understatement. The Heat wouldn’t have won the 2013 Finals without his sharpshooting, and without it in the 2014 Finals, they may have gotten swept. But as it stands right now, the greatest three-point shooter in history is undecided on his return for a 19th season.

Many have joked about Allen bailing out LeBron James in Game 6 of the 2013 Finals. But as it turns out, the two are apparently good friends. Brian Windhorst of ESPN is even reporting that Allen and James vacationed together last week following their Finals defeat.

As of now it appears that Allen will return to the NBA next season. But he might only do it alongside his buddy, LBJ, according to Windhorst.

None of this this sounds like crazy talk. Allen should want to play alongside James, just as James should want to play alongside Allen. When James draws the attention of multiple defenders in the lane, who better to kick it out to than Allen? The two simply work well together.

For lack of a better term you could call them a ‘package deal’ this offseason.

Just where the two will be ‘packaged’ together, is anyone’s guess. But if you had to place a bet, the most likely destination is South Beach. For the most part the Heat still have a good thing going, it’s just a matter of doing what Pat Riley said last week: retooling.

If Riles can work some magic and bring some fresh productive faces to Miami, the odds are that Allen and James will be back in 2014-15 as well.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.
