Rondo is a top 10 PG, with DWill, Conley, Westbrook, Irving, Rubio and Lawson (Steph Curry and Lillard are SG's IMO)
CP3, a healthy Rose and Parker are the top 3 PG's
Both Rondo and Paul are tempermental, arrogant and generally difficult teammates. Only Paul has been able to back up his talk more by being the clearly dominant alpha on his teams, and Rondo, despite his ring, has always been seen as getting to where he is mainly b/c of PP, KG, Doc and to a lesser extent Ray. Shooting there is no question of who is better.
So, the point is, with KG in decline even from his great 2012 playoff perfomances, Pierce no guarnatee to be there (and in decline as well), can Paul, a better PG than Rondo, really do more with what he has.
It really comes down to Griffin IMO. He needs to become Karl Malone, and FAST or the Clippers are going nowhere, regardless of KG, PP and a 20-10 CP3 on that roster.
