Says "friction" w/Rondo not a factor. "There's differences. We all have differences. Paul eats corn flakes. I may not like corn flakes."

David Aldridge ‏@daldridgetntJuly 11, 2012

So, choosing to sign with Miami has nothing to do with Rondo. Thats great I guess and I understand all players have differences, but this tweet suggests there still was something deep and personal between the two.

This article helps explain but I doubt we will ever know what happened between them.
Heat Give Allen Reason...

Allen hasn't spoken w/Rondo. Texted Pierce/KG. "Those are the guys that, when we came into Boston together, a lot was put on our shoulders."

David Aldridge ‏@daldridgetntJuly 11, 2012

Seeming to dismiss that Rondo didnt have a lot put on his shoulders being that young and playing PG for future hall of famers. Its quite clear Ray and Rondo are oil and water. I think Ray felt forced out. Even the C's Brass were willing to sacrifice Allen.

#CelticsTalk‬: "Forever, I'll always be a Celtic, no matter what. "- Ray Allen on being on the other side of the ‪#Celtics‬-‪#Heat‬ rivalry now.

Whatever the case...good luck Ray! I loved your time here and I'll hate to root against you now that you're gone
