Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo is already planning for the offseason in the form of a vacation his former teammates from the 2008 NBA Championship team. All of the former teammates will unite for the vacation to celebrate their feat 9 years ago.
One player excluded from the festivities will be Ray Allen. Rondo revealed he will not invite Allen due to the decision to leave the Celtics to join the rival Miami Heat.
“I asked a couple of the guys. I got a no, a no head shake. It will be a long story about that, but it is what it is,” Rondo, who plays for the Chicago Bulls, told The Undefeated. “I don’t know a good analogy to put this in. It just wasn’t the greatest separation. It wasn’t the greatest thing that could’ve happened to us as a team, a bond. We were at war with those guys [Miami]. To go with the enemy, that’s unheard-of in sports. Well, it’s not so unheard of. It’s damn near common now.”
Rondo also had personal issues with Allen during their playing days. It is still rather petty to exclude one of the major reasons Boston won the title.
Allen won another ring in Miami and Rondo’s career declined dramatically without the big three. We know who won the war.
