Paul Pierce’s jersey retirement ceremony brought former teammates Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo to TD Garden. Doc Rivers was also in attendance to take in the festivities. Ray Allen, though, was not. On Sunday, Allen posted an Instagram photo from the golf course and congratulated George Lopez on a hole in one — not Pierce on his jersey retirement. Pierce wasn’t upset. During Monday’s edition of The Jump, Pierce understood why Allen couldn’t make the trip. He was more upset with a different Allen: Former teammate Tony Allen.
