In response to rameakap's comment:
To say any of the following things and be considered a legit fan of this team is unacceptable to me:
1. Attacking Rondo for the same old issues the small minds/haters have had for 5 years now or saying he is overrated and not an elite player.
2. Choosing Ray Allen's 'woe is me look what Boston did to force my hand even as they paid me 10-17 million a year and offered me double what Miami sob story over the actions of ANY Celtic (Ainge, Rondo, KG, Doc) when it comes to why ray isn't here
3. Giving up on the season after 1 game
I you want a learning moment, this is it: "To say any of the following things and be considered a legit fan of this team is unacceptable to me:"
I think you are dead wrong about Ray. Nuff said. I don't claim to have a hot line to the truth, and I don't believe everything everybody says, especialy management and especialy Boston Sports Management who have a history of treating players like chattel.
I agree to disagree with you on Ray. We differ in our view point. You interpret the ifnformation available to you differently than I interpret the information avialable to me.
Rondo has had the same issues his entire career: immaturity, poor jump shooter, stubbgorn mind-set, arrogant sense of entitlement.
What I found charming in him as a young'un I now find to be established flaws. I'm a big Rondo fan, a big supporter, I love to wathc him play with abandon and take over a game: but I would also like to see him mature and become a real leader and to be able to hit a clutch open jumper when the team has fougnt back to a a 5 point deficier wsith a buck 28 left to play.
Let's not lose sight of what happened against the Heat. It was a very important, symbolic game. I would have liked to see us win it.
No one I know gave up on the season after that game, some posters were facetious and even spelled it out for you twice; fuh-c-tious.
Ya can't look at much, can ya, Man.
