Miami Heat guard Ray Allen says he's anxious to put everything in the past after Tuesday's season opener against his former team, the Boston Celtics.
"Yeah, we can move on," Allen said after Saturday's Heat practice. "I think it's two-fold, having a ring ceremony and then playing Boston. It's like both situations, letting go of what happened last year and we can move forward."
After months of anticipation, the two teams are set to tip off on Oct. 30 in Miami. Before the game, the Heat will be receiving their championship rings.
Allen said he wouldn't let emotions get the best of him, playing against his old team.
"I'm not over-emotional," Allen said. "Just go out and get a win. I want to win the game. It's good to see my past teammates. You have to be excited about this new chapter. You just make sure that you just enjoy what you're doing and pay homage to where I've been."
