Leaving on Good Terms.

On the NBA’s opening night, you may have seen Kevin Garnett snub his former teammate Ray Allen, who left the Celtics for the Heat over the summer.

Before tipoff, Allen went over to the Celtics bench, seemingly to shake hands with or high five Garnett, who was sitting, but Garnett completely ignored him.

Apparently, as the article I linked to above informs us, “Allen hasn’t spoken with Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo or Paul Pierce since joining the Miami Heat in the offseason.”

To me, this all shows shortsightedness on Allen’s part.

I don’t see how you choose to leave a team and not say a single word to your ex-teammates, the guys you fought alongside for five years.

Maybe Allen figured he was never going to be friends with these guys again, so there wasn’t any point in saying goodbye.

The problem is, he was destined to cross paths with them again, like he did Tuesday night, and as he will at every Celtics-Heat game going forward. Allen could have and should have prevented these encounters from being awkward by making a more “graceful exit” from Boston.

There’s a lesson here: When you leave a job or organization or anything of the sort - no matter how glad you are to be getting away, no matter how much you dislike the people you’re leaving - you should always try your best to leave on good terms.

Because life can take some unexpected turns, and you never know when you’re going to cross paths with someone again.

Don’t put yourself in a position to get snubbed, as Ray Allen did.

Leave allies behind, instead of adversaries.


  • I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
