Rondo is well on his way to being ELITE! teams used to play him under to avoid him driving and to challenge his lack of a jumper. now he's in ELITE status shooting the ball (despite his recent cold 3 ball).. he's bringing it at almost 50% (ray territory) when teams go under. interestingly, before his injury when they came over, he was nailing it at a ridiculous 61%, now as he recovers from major surgery, he is slow to get his explosion back off the dribble (which is the norm the first year)and is only bringing it at a mediocre 30%. as kelly gets better and viktor returns with some pick favors, i can easily see the rondo being the BEST pg in this here Association next year. talking MVP stuff.
Danny has to bring him back and see how it goes for at least the mid-point of the year. y would an elite guy or 2 not want to play with this guy. he's only going to get BETTER as he recovers next year. took a lot of pride and humility for him to focus on his shot as he did. now his FT shooting is enhanced and no doubt will be in the 37% 3 point range next year with more upside to come. can see celties bringing back Perk just for his pick toughness and intelligence (very underrated part of his game, ask OKC).
danny must read all this stuff, how can he truly b disappointed in RR.. his defense too will be better next year, as health match up with tenacity!
