Ray Allen blames the Heat for “burning the Big Three”

The ‘BIg Three’ of the Heat led the most glorious era of the franchise and supposed a clear hegemony in the League with four appearances followed in the Finals, from 2010 to 2014 and two championships (2012 and 2013).
In part of that period was Ray Allen, who coincided with that unstoppable trio formed by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Well, Allen, recently, gave his version of how and why it was over before that time for the NBA. And it indicates a clear culprit.
In an interview for Sports Illustrated, Allen says that the training and the continuous publicity appearances of the players burned the squad during the 2013-14 season, in which they lost the NBA final against the Spurs, 4-1.
“With how old the team was, and with all the basketball we had played, we had to make a million appearances, train many days and do a lot of things that were extraordinarily worn out by a squad at the end of the season,” said Allen.
“Having to stand for so long … the Heat organization did not learn how to take care of our bodies … When your players have played in June the last three seasons, you have to figure out how to minimize efforts”,
“We did not need trainings, we did not need shooting sessions, we just needed mental work, but everything we did was worn out in the long run ahead of time.”
