Ray Allen opened up about the main difference between the 2008 Boston Celtics and the 2013 Miami Heat.

Allen, one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, said the main difference was about the depth and experience of the Heat squad.

“The Miami team was deeper. From top to bottom it was just vets. It was a problem that Spo had because he had so many players he can go from James Jones to Mike Miller to Shane Battier.

You look at the roster everyone can play and contribute. On our roster in Boston, once you left PJ [Brown] and Sam [Cassell] everyone else was like Big Baby [Glen Davis] who was a first-year player.

We had [Brian] Scalabrine]. We had [Tony Allen]. We had Gabe Pruitt. A lot of young players who haven’t been on the stage,” the two-time NBA champion and Hall of Famer said on a recent appearance on James Posey’s The Posecast.

Allen won the NBA title twice (2008 with Boston and 2013 with Miami).
