Default Ray Allen on the Paul vs. Rondo Debacle

"The game's over; you just want everybody to clear the floor," Allen said. "They're both feisty. They're both aggressive, in your face. It can get pretty chippy out there.

"But you have to be able to walk off the floor and say: 'Way to compete tonight. For those 48 minutes, I cannot stand you. I wanted to fight you. I wanted to do everything I could.' And when you walk off the floor, you say, 'Way to battle.'"



Boy that Ray Allen is a grown up man.

I respect that mindset so much.

Cheers Ray

Ray Allen is a good guy among a team full of cunts.

It pains me to see a man of his character and class amidst that gang of shit heats.

i've seen chris paul wince on the court way to much to think he's got a shot against rondo. Paul looks stronger but toughness is a big factor

thanks for that Granny, but this is more about how that entire way of thinking has no place in sports.

If a player can't leave it on the court, he needs to work on his mental approach to what he's doing.

Another side of the story

Quote:
NEW YORK – Never is there a wise time to test the tolerance of the planet’s best point guard, but Rajon Rondo(notes) has that irritating ability to push people’s patience to the brink. The sluggish state of the New Orleans Hornets had Chris Paul(notes) seething on Sunday night, his mood even edgier with a report that Rondo had privately disparaged Paul’s talents within the Boston Celtics’ locker room.

Chris Paul and the Hornets have lost three of their first four games after reaching the West semifinals two seasons ago.
(Getty Images)

Beyond the charming smile and gentlemanly disposition, Paul has a tenacious will and a terrific temper. Beyond it all, he’s downright ferocious.

So, here was Rondo surrounded with an embarrassment of point guard riches – K.G., Paul Pierce(notes) and Ray Allen(notes), a championship banner and a fat, new $55 million contract. Rondo felt emboldened, eager to engage Paul. The procession of trash talk, sources said, pushed into the personal when Rondo was heard to tell Paul, “I’ve got a ring, and you’re never gonna win one.”
Paul's frustration grows, even as he hides it - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

There are two ways to read this. The way you read it and the:

"Yeah sure, they were both kind of assholes ON the court. Only one of them was an asshole off the court."

We all know it wasn't Rondo who tried to start the fight after the game ended, so that means only Chris Paul is guilty of not being able to control himself offcourt.

Fancy... do you really dislike that many players on the Celts? Or does this all come from your hatred of KG? lol...

Ray Allen... PP.... Rondo... Sheed... I have a massive amount of respect for ALL of those guys. Don't really think that they're world-class dicks either.

I never really liked the Celtics. I've always had a dislike for Boston sports teams actually (not really sure what drugs Acie is on sometimes)... Of late my hatred for the Celtics has grown chiefly because of the amazing levels of douchebaggery that many of their players exhibit. They're my Manchester United of the NBA.

The one guy i respect is Ray Allen. I've always held him in high regard... ...although fuck him too because he wears green. You know what else is green? Vomit. hahaha.

Dick move right there. One day, Rondo will realize how lucky he was to play with 3 HOFers when his Celts are in the basement after they retire. Have fun!
