Ray Allen: Rajon Rondo Said ‘I Carried All Of You To The Championship In 2008’ To Celtics Teammates

In his new book “From The Outside”, Ray Allen details the issues between him, Rajon Rondo and other Celtics teammates. According to the future Hall of Famer, Rondo once claimed he carried the 2008 Celtics to a championship during a team meeting in 2010-11. Rondo who was 21-years-old at the time averaged 9.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game in the 08 Finals, shot 37 percent from the field and 59 percent from the FT line. Via SportingNews:

In a team meeting, Allen writes, Rondo told his teammates, “I carried all of you to the championship in 2008.”

Allen continued: “The rest of the team, almost in unison, responded, ‘You what?’”

Rondo said everyone on the team had problems with him, and when Allen told him, “None of us had issues with you,” Rondo said to him, “You did, too. You told me I was the reason we were going to be traded (in 2009 for Amar’e Stoudemire).”
