Ray Allen #20 of the Boston Celtics looks on against the Miami Heat in Game One of the Eastern Conference Finals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs on May 28, 2012 at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.
Heat Nation has something fresh to smile about.
After five seasons with the Celtics, Ray Allen is trading green for the fiery red and black.
"I think that no one can beat the Heat now," said Marta Montenegro, a fan.
"I was so excited," said Cheryl Mingo-Ajala as she shopped for Heat swag Saturday morning with her husband. "We need a really good, dependable three-point shooter and he is one."
It's "gonna be the Big Four," said fan Willie Jones. "Ray Allen, he's dangerous."
Allen took nearly a 50 percent pay cut to make the Miami move - accepting the Heat's $3.09 million a season versus $6 million he could have pocketed in Boston.
"It says a lot," said Mingo-Ajala's husband, Bo Ajala, " to come and play with a championship team, and get a chance to win another championship."
Celtics fans may be crying, but Heat Nation is dreaming of defending its NBA title next year with a quartet of kings, or as some call it ...
"It's now the apocalypse of the four horsemen," said Mingo-Ajala, laughing.
