There are many ways to look at the departure of Ray Allen, but to make a complicated story simple, leave it at this: He took the out-of-town discount.

For some reason, Allen's decision to play in Miami for $3 million less a year than the Celtics were offering has caused an element of Boston sports fans to lose their minds. They have begun labeling a guy Danny Ainge at least twice tried to trade out of town over the past two years "Benedict Allen" and "Judas Shuttlesworth." What do they call Ainge? They call him a businessman.

Well, welcome to the other side of the business.
