In Response to GIVE RONDO A BREAK!! : With any number of other point guards that could shoot and or make free throws they would have likely won two more titles. Give him a break? Why? After being in the league 6 years he makes bonehead turnovers all the time, tries to make passes that are not there, barely leads the league in assists when he has 3 great shooters to whom he has the luxury of passing the ball, and whose team has a better winning percentage without him than with him? Give him a break - give me a break..... trade him for Teague and whatever else it takes to make the money work, Teague and any number of other players or picks or better yet, Teague and Smith and then have the Cs throw in Ray's contract to make it work..... When Danny puts out feelers and the other teams laugh and when the two finals will have marginal point guards at best - in OKC most don't even consider Westbrook a point guard, some will finally realize what I have said all along - BIGS and WINGS win titles, point guards are usually dragged along...... the last 20 years - Jordan, Pippen, Duncan, Shaq, Kobe, and Hakeem are the reasons teams won titles - the teams that lost those titles - Patrick, 'zo, etc. The only two good point guards that have won titles in the last 20 years are Billups and Parker, most of the time point guards like Fisher, Paxson, Kerr, 50 year old Kidd, White Chocolate have won titles.......the point guard position is vastly overrated and having a vastly overrated point guard as some sort of building block of the future renders the whole decision making process kind of a simple brain f art if you don't deal Rondo to a team that values one way more than they should........... The Clips get CP3 and Billups and their season falls apart when Billups goes down.. things that make you go hmmm.... with Nash, Kidd, Williams, Paul, and any number of other point guards that are more complete the Cs would have raised two more banners in the BIG 3 era........... but at least we have a whiny immature point guard that cannot shoot and cannot be on the floor in crunch time to bring along all of the young players that will make up the bulk of the roster in the coming years..... 25 wins and let the rebuilding begin....

Has anyone on this board been more consistantly wrong than Dud bud?
I actually find Elven more enlightening, and less predictable.
Are there any Celtics fans here besides me that like Elven's posts better than Dud's?
