Boston Celtics News: Watch Rajon Rondo Refer To Ray Allen As “That Guy” (VIDEO)

For Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, absence does not always make the heart grow fonder. At least not when it comes to former teammate Ray Allen.

Rondo appeared on the BET show 106 & Park earlier this week and was asked about his relationship with the man they call Jesus Shuttleworth. Allen played a character by that name in the Spike Lee film He Got Game.

Here is a transcript of the conversation, via Jessica Camerato of

BET: Have you talked to Jesus? Have you talked to Ray Allen, man?
Rondo: Oh, that guy.
BET: Ohh.
Rondo: I talk to the Lord.
BET: You say you what?
Rondo: To the Lord.

Reports surfaced late last season that Rondo and Allen did not get along. Sports Illustrated writer Chris Mannix told the Dennis & Callahan radio show over the summer that relationship between the two guards deteriorated as the season went on.

"I think the relationship over the last year between Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo soured," Mannix said. "Now, I'm not entirely clear as to how bad it got. But certainly I know that there was some legitimate, palpable friction between those two players and I think that will ultimately affect his decision in free agency."

Indeed, Allen did choose to leave the Celtics in free agency, signing a three-year deal with Miami worth up to $9.5 million.

Allen started only 42 of his team's 66 regular-season games last year after getting replaced in the lineup by young Avery Bradley. Still, Allen averaged over 10 points per game for Boston this past postseason, and the Celtics offered him a two-year, $12 million deal. But Allen rejected that offer to take less money with the Heat. Allen reportedly felt the Heat gave him a better shot at winning a title, though his souring relationship with Rondo likely didn't help Boston's cause.

Honestly, Rondo shouldn't care about Allen or what he does with Miami. He should be focusing on himself and his teammates and how they can beat the Heat this upcoming season.

After all, if Rondo and the Celtics don't win a few more titles, he might just be known as "that point guard" decades from now.
