Ray Allen through the years
Feud with Kobe Bryant
Allen and Bryant are even in head-to-head matchups in the NBA Finals, the Celtics winning in 2008 and the Lakers winning in 2010. But these two players had beef before Allen joined the Celtics. In 2004 when Allen was with the Sonics, he called Bryant "very selfish." Told of Allen's statements, Bryant reportedly told Allen, "I'll see you again." And later, according to a report in the Seattle Times, Kobe called Allen and told him "I'm going to bust your ass." Asked about the call, Kobe responded: "Don't even put me and dude in the same breath." The two players claimed the feud was nonsense before the 2008 Finals began.
