You guys are blaming this loss on Rondo? Who did you think played well tonight? Talk about an agenda. Garnett was all right but he played small and did nothing on the glass. Pierce, Allen and Davis all had bad shooting nights. And you guys are all mad at the guy who gave you 13 and 9? You guys kill me. I have said it here numerous times. There are easily 7 or 8 guys I would put above Rondo as my point guard in the NBA. But you guys want to blame everything on him. This game was obviously not on Rondo. In fact he Semi and Garnett are the only guys that had decent games at all.

nope, i'm not blaming the loss on the rondo. i prefaced my statement by saying that the vets were likely to be lousy, tired, sluggish, in this game. so WHY NOT if you're rondo, why not go out there and just bring home the bacon for us a few nights a year.
that's all i said. obviously a lot of bad plays were needed. wall was asking for it by being in foul trouble. rondo didn't give it to him. it's one reason why we lost.
icon, what i am looking at, in this 2nd of a back to back, is for something out of the young point guard we have, something beyond mediocre and okay which is what we got. i remember two years ago and last year there were games when rondo went out and set the table, almost by himself, becuase he can be that good. these were games against bad teams and the older starters got needed rest from carrying the load.
i'm simply asking where did that rondo go, the one that would/could go out and do that for us? i thought it served two functions- 1) keep his scoring skills sharp and 2) give rest to the fogies.
how do you turn that into an agenda?
