Kendrick Perkins revealed the real reason behind the beef between former Boston Celtics teammates Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen.

Perkins said the beef began when Allen wanted to get Rondo off the team in exchange for Chris Paul.

“It was brought to the table, ‘what if we trade Rondo and get CP?’ And KG and Paul (Pierce) were like, ‘no, we ain’t doing that. As great as CP is, we just won the championship. We’re rocking with [Rondo].’ Ray was like, ‘nah, let’s do it.’ And what happened was Rondo ended up finding out about it, and that was it from there,” Perkins said in an interview on Sirius XM NBA Radio, via Larry Brown Sports.
