    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Celtics Will Go As Far As Rondo and Garnett's Knee Can Take Them Next Season.... : I get that his assist numbers will be down if the team is scoring less. But, Rondo's scoring less should not necessarily be correlated with the team. His scoring less is a result of his defender limiting his scoring. That's what Kobe did in comparison with whoever Miami, Cleveland, and Orlando used to guard Rondo.

    So, Ray Allen should be first team All D according to your logic!

    Controller, I'm sure that you know that there are aspects of the game beyond scoring, rebounds and assists.  With that in mind, please ponder the fact that Rondo's per game OVERALL PRODUCTION came within one-tenth of one percent of his regular season average.  

    That means that Kobe's overall effect on Rondo was almost identical to that of an average NBA point guard.  Not quite what one would expect from an All-NBA defender.  And light years from Kobe "shutting Rondo down", as some would have us believe. 

    Looking at Rondo's scoring in the other playoff series, you might want to think about the fact that in two of those three series, Rondo's scoring average was within one point of what he scored in the Laker series.
