Default Re: Ray Allen confirms in New book what we all knew... KG was a nutcase and Rondo a punk.

'According to Allen, though, the deal fell through for a different reason: “In the end, Doc decided he couldn’t do that to their coach, Monty Williams. Doc was a mentor to Monty, having coached him in Orlando.”'

Whst kinda reason is that to have not traded Rondo for Chris Paul...

Also... In KG's defense, I can see how somebody constantly dribbling a ball in the locker room could kinda get annoying after a while.

He definitely could have broached it in a less confrontational manner though.

I always understood why Allen bounced on a personal basis. It's none of this shit. The dude sacrificed a lot to play his role and did so extremely well. Despite that he was recognized and praised the least. That's where the real issue is at which is why this laundry list f shit comes out as a consequence. Ray needs no book money but as a star that perhaps never got the recognition he believes he deserves amongst the creme of the crop, star of stars...that hurt him personally. Big ass ego's.

There are two sides to a story.

The article says he dribbled it in front of the locker room, so I'm assuming it's somewhere outside next to the door or in front of the door.

Anyways, you really shouldn't **** with a teammates' routine. He was doing that for ages and now you want him to stop it all of a sudden? Allen was 2a/2b with Pierce on that team as well and not some random scrub. Should've won FMVP in '08, TBH.

Steve Kerr got punched by MJ. Ray got his feelings hurt by a KG joke and Rondo's attitude. Kerr > Ray

He and KG went to Boston to win championship. They years of personal accolades were supposed to be way past them already.

Great link

Rondo claimed Allen was jealous of him, and when Allen responded that Rondo needed to “stop bulls—ing everyone on the team,” Rondo told him, “I’m going to get your ass out of here this summer.” Later, on the team plane, Allen said he approached Rondo to see if the problem could be handled and the hatchet buried. Instead, Rondo turned a cold shoulder and said, “I got 11 games to play with you, and that’s it.”
I love Rondo, but mang does he have to grow up on this

It's a shitshow, and they tend to look far from what would you call a matured personality. They're like kids. It's fascinating but infuriating at the same time. At one point Celtics had a roster as noisy as the Jailblazers did, just perhaps with less criminality. Imagine trying to managing that bunch

That "shitshow" made it to the Finals twice and won a Championship. They aren't like kids because they're highly-focused professionals. That's the difference between them and the gang of underachievers in Portland. Sheed (for ironic example...he was part of the Celtics for a season) supposedly had all-time great talent but won't sniff the Hall of Fame. Why? Because he wasn't trying to be the kind of player that took over games and won MVP awards. Just wasn't him. KG on the other hand was an elite player for years. Pierce, Allen, Rondo, all of them got the most they could out of their talents. And that's why the personalities are worth putting up with. That's why you put up with a guy like Rodman or the Shaq/Kobe conflict.

The stuff with KG seems kinda petty. But boy Rondo... one of my favorite players, I hope he's changed. Probably has been humbled seeing as he's kinda a role player now

I always thought KG must be such a cool teammate but it got obvious the dude is super weird

locker room cancer? or is that stretching it?

Just a douchebag. You can say Rondo was cancerous though.

Just the fact that he's actually writing a book and almost snitching on these dudes, got me into a certain perspective.

But when he said the Garnett dinner thing, maybe he read the situation wrong.
Maybe he was just trying to be funny, and not really establish dominion. At least consciously. I wonder the context, I mean, I can almost not picture any other way in which another man would say this other than a joking context.

The basketball dribbling thing, maybe you needed to be there. Maybe he did go about asking that Ray not do that and there was another way to go about telling him. Maybe. We weren't there.

And I know Rondo comes off as hard to like. So... We'll see.
