  Rajon Rondo explains why Ray Allen won't be invited to a reunion of the 2008 Celtics The former teammates aren't on the best of termsThe 10-year anniversary of the last time the Celtics won a title will be here in 2018, and Rajon Rondo is planning a vacation for his former teammates to get together and reflect on the accomplishment. But one name will be noticeably absent from his invite list.

Rajon Rondo is not over Ray Allen leaving the Celtics for the Heat. Rondo also explained the nature of the reunion , which will reportedly occur this year: “This is going to an out- of - the -country thing at an undisclosed location,” Rondo said.

Former Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo recently told ESPN’s The Undefeated he’s organizing a get-together with former members of the Celtics ’ 2007-08 team to celebrate I got a no, a no head shake,” Rondo explained to The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears when asked why Allen wasn’ t invited .

Ray Allen left the Celtics after five seasons to chase a ring with the Miami Heat, and the vets from that Boston squad haven't forgiven him to this day. Rondo explained why Allen won't be welcome at the team's reunion in an interview with The Undefeated's Marc Spears.

“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.

“The mindset we had. The guys on our team. You wouldn’t do anything like that. It makes you question that series in the Finals … Who were you for? You didn’t bleed green. People think we had a messed-up relationship. It’s not the greatest. But it’s not just me. I called and reached out to a couple of other vets and asked them what they wanted to do with the situation. They told me to stick with what we got [without Allen].”

Allen was 36 years old when he left Boston after the 2012 season, and went on to hit one of the most memorable shots in NBA Finals history on the way to winning a title in Miami the very next season. He's probably going to be just fine vacationing by himself.
