The tumultuous relationship between Playoff Rondo and Ray Allen just got some new interesting details. On a recent episode of All The Smoke podcast, Kendrick Perkins talked about Rajon Rondo fighting Ray Allen in the Celtics weight room.
Kendrick Perkins said the beef all started when Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce wanted to hand Rondo the keys to run their offense full time, but Ray Allen wasn’t with it.

Ray has the height advantage, but in boxing that is a disadvantage most of the time. The 20 lbs weight difference didn’t help him either.
