The “water bottle into the TV” story isn’t new, although that quote is.http://nesn.com/2011/12/rajon-rondo-erupts-during-heat-playoff-series-throws-bottle-that-breaks-video-screen-says-new-report/amp/
Somewhere out there Ray Allen is thinking how can I take advantage of this?
I couldn't stand Rondo then and dislike him even more now. I really wish Ainge could have swindled some team into taking him when the Big 3 still had a real shot at winning. He just couldn't find that team until it was far too late.

Ray says he approached Rondo the following summer after trade rumors involving Rondo + Ray to Phoenix got leaked. Ray said "dude, you need to calm it down or you're going to get us traded", which irritated Rondo and led to the break down of their relationship completely. Ray says that Rondo then froze him out of the offense, and blames Doc for benching him rather than attempting to reign in Rondo.
I remember when they put together the big 3 and thinking that this guy Rondo was a big question mark. Second year non shooting PG starting next to 3 hall of famers, he better not screw this up. And he didn't, rather he extended their run and elevated his game further than most thought he would. Most importantly his competitivness is through the roof, and whatever Ray or some unnamed assistant says about this or that doesn't change squat about what he actually did for the team.
