In a wide-ranging interview with Yahoo's Marc Spears , Rajon Rondo addressed the perception that he and Ray Allen were not on good terms.
"People act like because me and Ray didn't get along or they think me and Ray didn't get along that I'm a bad person or he's a bad person," Rondo told Spears. "No. It's just life. If you look at your job, everyone doesn't always get along with every co-worker they work with. It's just part of life. People are blowing the Ray thing out of proportion. We had some words, but other than that it was no big deal.
"There were so many rumors like I was looking Ray off. Why would I look Ray off? That doesn't make sense. He's the best shooter, so why would I look him off? People can see it how they want to. They can talk to Ray. But from my standpoint, he made his decision. I don't know why he made the decision, but he made the decision. I don't think it had anything to do with me."
Rondo also said that he think the Celtics are one of five legitimate contenders for the NBA championship and revealed some details about the team's unofficial workouts in Los Angeles including a flag football game with referees.
