Ray Allen fell out of favor with the Celtics when he signed with the Heat in 2012. His relationship with Rajon Rondo, poor already, became especially dismal.
Allen said the issue stems from him trying to have Rondo stop a trade of the pair to the Suns in 2009.
Keep in mind: This is Allen's perspective, detailed in a new book. Rondo might describe things differently.
Though even Rondo admits he can be difficult.
Rondo didn't receive enough credit at the time for Boston's 2008 title. So much of the praise was heaped on stars Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Allen. Rondo, just a second-year player, was also very good and hadn't yet been recognized for his production.
But that's not close to saying he carried the Celtics to the championship. He was still their fourth-best player.
And telling his Boston teammates he carried them would be a whole other level. Allen revealing this will probably take his feud with Rondo up a notch, too.
