Ray Allen on his Final year with the Celtics: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“…people would always say, ‘[Rondo] looks you off. When you come off a screen, he sees you and he doesn’t pass you the ball when you’re open.’ At first, my family would say it, because they watch intently, and they know the game.”

“I went to Doc. And I asked Doc, and I said, ‘Doc, I think dude is looking me off, and he’s not passing me the ball. And I don’t know why, but I’m coming off, I’m running the plays that you’re drawing up, and he’s not passing me the ball. And he’ll shoot it or he’ll go in the other direction.’

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“And Doc’s response was, ‘I know. We talked about it as a coaching staff.’

“I was like, ‘Wow. So you knew this whole time and you didn’t say anything. You didn’t address it to me and, more importantly, you’re not addressing him about it.’” (h/t Yahoo Sports)
