Ray Allen taking his talents to South Beach

Ray Allen had his chance to cash in via free agency one more time before his career comes to an end, but he decided to spurn the dollars for a chance to join the defending NBA champion Miami Heat.

This development throws a huge wrinkle into the Boston Celtics` plans for next season, as they were hoping to re-sign Allen in order to make another run at an NBA championship with their current nucleus.

For the Heat, this move makes them even more dangerous heading into next season. Obviously, the trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are going to be the stars of the show. They found that balance to be successful in the postseason last year. Now, with Allen coming on board, the Heat have the outside sharpshooter that will add another component to the offense.

Despite some anger in Boston, I think Allen is making a brilliant career move. He doesn`t have to do anything in Miami except sit at the three-point line, wait for James, Wade or Bosh to drive the lane, and when they feel trouble, expect the dish to do what he does so well knock it down from downtown.
