Didn't Ray Allen sacrifice his rights to vacation on Martha's Vineyard when he joined the Heat?

One of the first things Barack Obama did on his Martha's Vineyard trip was to play golf with Ray Allen and Amhad Rashad.  A), good for the President.  If I was him and I heard those two were on the island I'd absolutely want to go golfing with them as well.  But B), in my mind Ray Allen shouldn't really have even been there in the first place.

I know Ray and his family have been vacationing on the Vineyard for a long time.  I'll never forget when he and team owner Wyc Grousbeck carried the Celtics' championship trophy in the Edgartown 4th of July parade back in 2008.

That's me shaking Wyc's hand.

From my own experience and multiple other Vineyard sources, Ray has always been extremely nice and friendly to everyone in his time there.  But Bostonians take their sports pretty seriously, and regardless of who Ray is in real life, after the way he spurned the Celtics for Miami in July of 2012 it probably would have been wise for him to find a new vacation spot outside of Massachusetts.
