In Response to Re: C's sign Arroyo
[QUOTE]Danny, you're a gem. Carlos can shoot 40+% from the field; hit 3's, and is an 80% free throw shooter. Yeah, I know, he's a defensive liability on other teams. He'll get better under the tutelage of KG, PP, and RA. At least adequate. Now, can you see Carlos hitting 16' jumpers at the end of games when otherwise we'd have to wince every time Rondo hacks it up in the air? No more 5 on 4 for the last four minutes of close games. And don't forget, he's a slasher and will penetrate and get fouled. Love this pickup. Might turn out better than Jeff Green.

1) Rondo will never be on the bench at crunch time (unless we have to have a three, and probably not even then).
2) Rondo is an All-Star, who - during the last five minutes of close games - plays even better than he usually does. He shoots more, hits more, scores more, gets more rebounds and assists and steals, and has fewer turnovers.
Since you are apparently a pretty new poster, let me offer a word of advice. On this forum, it's generally not a good idea to make assertions with no facts to back them up. And if you go to the trouble to find the facts (especially about Rondo) you are likely to find that they paint a very different picture from whatever the barstool experts preach. (And, as another poster pointed out, always be on guard against the opinions of unsuccessful former PGs.)
