Thanks to Ray Allen's new book entitled “From the Outside: My Journey through Life and the Game I Love,” the future Hall of Famer's on-going feud with former teammate and current New Orleans Pelicans point guard Rajon Rondo continues.
In his book, Allen writes at length about Rondo and goes into great detail on how they both didn't see eye-to-eye. Allen really goes off on Rondo as he accuses the now Pelicans guard of claiming that he led the Celtics to the championship in 2008, refusing to work on his free-throws and freezing him out on offense by not passing the ball.
Boston.com's Nicole Yang breaks down what Allen wrote about Rondo:
After claiming he “carried” the team to the 2008 championship — and alleging every player on the team “had issues” with him — Rondo called out Allen for saying he was the reason the two were going to get traded. Allen maintained he never said that and was just telling him what he had heard.
2010-2011: Allen offered to help Rondo with his free throws one day before practice. Rondo’s free-throw percentage hovered around 60-percent that season, so Allen thought improving that shot of his could be a “huge boost” for the team. Rondo, however, was not on board with Allen’s suggestion.
