Interesting detail on why Ray Allen chose to sign with the Heat over the Celtics this weekend: he and Rajon Rondo don’t like each other.Here’s what Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported:
The deterioration of Ray Allen’s relationship with Rajon Rondo played a significant factor in his leaving for Miami, several sources tell Y!
Doc Rivers had tried to mend Rondo-Allen issues after season, but one team source says, “They were too far gone.”
It’s hard to know exactly where these rumours come from, so you should probably take them with a grain of salt.
But regardless of whether not it’s true, this will bolster Rondo’s reputation as the most inexplicable player in the NBA.
The body of evidence continues to grow. He does a different little trick off the opening tip every game. He allegedly went into a complete funk after Barack Obama flippantly told him his jump-shot was terrible. And he randomly called out the Heat for crying to the refs during a halftime interview in the playoffs.
Not even his hyper-stylised, at-times dazzling game can distract us from the impression that there’s something off about him.
His coach even called him “moody” and “stubborn” like it was nothing.
In the modern NBA, where guys all hug after games and play together in the offseason and go to each other’s weddings, Rondo is an outcast.
He wasn’t even a part of the discussion for the Olympic team, even though he just single-handedly dragged an old, hobbled Celtics team to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Why does the basketball world hate Rajon Rondo?
