    I guess with Rondo down, we'll at least see more of Nate mannning up.

    Every dark cloud has a silver lining.

    After watching Nate the last few games maybe Dudder and Pudinhead will both go away for a while. They can meet up with Acie and have a hate Rondo discussion group while the rest of us start getting anxious for his return.

    Agree with you.  We really need Rondo back.  In my opinion, he is the most important player on this team.   If he was out for a good part of the season, the Celtics would be in trouble.

    In Response to Re: Celtics are better with Nate at the point : At least Nate was man enough to try to take some responsibility for a bad game... and it was a ghastly game for him. Do you ever recall Rondo apologizing for a bad game or a bad series or the need to round out his game? Ever?   I don't. Maybe he could learn something from Lil' Nate if he could ever stop peering into the mirror or counting his stats. Pud

    Yeah that's what I want from a point guard.  Someone who apologizes.  Pud.  Is this what you have been reduced to?

    Pitiful.. aren't I? Talk about pitiful,  Rondo  certainly owes no apology to Don Knotts for his 4th quarter  Barney Fife impersonations.

    He nails it!

    Bottom line Nate is more of a scoring guard.  He can play some point guard.  Rondo is a point guard.  Both bring different talents to the table.  Sometimes Nate is bad like Christmas Day at Orlando but overall he is a good scorer.  Doc probably should have played Von Wafer more on Christmas and bring back Nate the next game.  Celtics will be OK even without KG for a while.

    Nate is way better than Rondo. Even when his shot isn't falling he brings so much to the table.

    Other than scoring, what else does he bring?  Steals, ball protection, assists, rebounds, ball denial, crisp passes, offensive pressure.  What else does he bring?  Lets list it.

    Nate is a terrific scorer who can get hot.  However, he does not get hot as often as Pierce or Ray do. 

    Nate is a second string shooting guard.  He can't be a starter.  he is too small for the shooting guard position.  On defense, a good opposing 2 guard will shoot over Nate every single time without any problems.  So he is not a starting 2 guard.  And we all know now that he cant run the starting point guard position.  He simply doesnt have the vision.

    He is a bench player at best.  He can play second string point for short spurts, as he did effectively earlier this season.  But his sweet spot obviously is the second string 2 guard position.  Once Rondo and Delonte are back, Nate will start providing us the best value for the money he gets.

    We win with Rondo even Doc said the game just flows better with him out there.  He is our leader!

    In Response to Re: Celtics are better with Nate at the point:
    In Response to Re: Celtics are better with Nate at the point : Brad, I think the Celtics are a "team defense" team first.  Rondo's individual defense is often lacking because he doesn't commit to it.  He doesn't stay with it.  He frequently gambles and is slow off the pick-and-roll "because" he knows he has backup.  He won "All Defensive" team but many posters here agree that his defense is very inconsistent and for stretches is downright horrible. Now on the offensive end, I think folks were seeing (when Rondo was hurt) the effect of teams not playing off our PG.  Folks saw how effective the other players could be when teams had to cover our PG and thus could not double whoever got the ball.  Honestly, and I'm sure you'll agree, it made the other players more free to do what they do best.  Seems Shaq just rose his game to another level. With all that being said, the Celtics are NOT better with Nate at the point.  However, there are certain situations when we play better with Nate at the point -- that is when our emphasis needs to be on offense.  Even as a "defense first" team, we often go through long stretches where our offense is non-existent.  That is when Nate at the point would be a good option-to free up everyone.

    Oh Petey62, you and your boyfriend Dudder believe Rondo play really Defense for this team?  did your boy Nate at the point free up anyone at all ?

    I keep bumping it up on occasion as well.  There are a lot of people on this thread that either insinuated or openly said that nate is better then rondo as point guard. Amazing.
