Are you serious, man? I don't like Boston or they're players (I respect the hell out of them though), but Allen is a very good SG today. Dude shot 45% from three this past season taking over 5 attempts per game. That's RIDICULOUS. He will be open all day from three. He's not Battier, he won't shoot low 30's from three the entire season (Battier stepped up in the Finals though). Allen is possibly the best three point shooter of all time and he'll be getting good looks all game.

LeBron is pretty much PG for that team anyways so you can can Wade and Allen in the backcourt. Or even have Allen play the 3 with a ridiculous small-ball lineup of:

Chalmers
Wade
Allen
Bron
Bosh

That's unstoppable. Think of the space that's created for LeBron and Wade to attack. Just crazy.
