In response to Ortiz123's comment:
Did you say the same thing when they won the whole thing..
How about when they made the finals again...
Contracts are based on potential returns...not certainty.
ummmmm, when they won the whole thing, rondo was on the bench late in all the important games because he was not fit for duty due to his nuts in his throat about shooting free throws.
so, yes, rondo was a problem when we "won the whole thing" and had he sorted his crap out in the in-between years, we very well could have won it MORE THAN ONCE. but he never sorted out the FT% and the basic open jump shooting. he just wasn't interested in it.
does anyone remember back in 1972-ish when wilt decided he was all about assists, to the detriment of the rest of his game? people thought he was a joke- he wanted the stats. well, the more time drones on here with old rondo, he is more about hiding himself behind piles of assists while he shoots wilt like %ages from the perimeter and foul line.
you can try to make a super high amount of assists the lysol to cover up the stench of the incompetence of the rest of his game but it just doesn't work. and neither did rondo in the 4th quarter of playoff games in 2008. membah in game 2 against the Lakers when he fell apart at the free throw line?? i do.
from games 2-5 in the 2008 Lakers series, rondo was tittes on a boar, as follows:
Min Per Game: 23.7 miserable tiny minutes, forcing the big 3 to do all the point guard work
3PT FG%: didn't even try one
Assists: 6.25- a stat perverted by his 16 dimes in game 2 followed by near flat line gms 3-5
Rebs: 2.8 yawn
Steals: .8 "wow" i'm overwhelmed with his greatness
So, YEAH, i did "say that" after we won it all in 2008. it took the blowout of game 6 for rondo to come out of his shell again, still shoot 40% from the floor but he got to gussy up his overall stats for the finals which were.... not good to date
