In response to puddinpuddin's comment:
Yea it hasn't worked out too well for us this Rondo at point guard has it?
Sometime yes and sometimes no. Sometimes great and sometime awful.
I had to LOL at the totally useless "fake behind the back pass" that R9R has perfected. All style, zero substance. Like his GQ internship.
If he's going to impress, impress by going to the line, sinking his FTs and taking/hitting open 15 footers to the point that defenders have to finally honor his shot.
so now its come to this..you are choosing to criticize his signature move, even though it works virtually EVERY TIME?
Since you obv dont watch the games, ill explain why it works: Rajon uses screens and once the screen guys defender comes off, he often uses a simple behind the back pass to the screener for an open jump shot. Many call it, "Pick and Pop." Garnett and Bass have been the most benefited by this play. So, bc Rondo is always making that pass, defenders have to account for it when he decides to do the fake, which is why it always works.
You call it useless, I, Celtic fans, coaches, other NBA players, coaches, GM's, call it brilliant. Guess only one basketball fan in the country knows what he is talking about.
The same guy that is going to get arrested for hiding in Rondo's bushes.
