And when Ray Allen left the Celtics to play for the rival Miami Heat in 2013, that set off a firestorm that probably will never be tamed. That is evident in Rajon Rondo’s latest move. He’s organizing a ten-year reunion for the 2008 championship Celtics team and Ray Allen is not invited on the trip despite being an integral part of the team.
“I mean, Ray left. He left to the enemy,” said Rondo in an indelibly stern manner.
It’s very clear that the line is drawn between Allen and the rest of his former teammates, but one other teammate feels like the line was unfairly drawn for him as well.
