It's hard to make a comparison with rondo, he has a different skill set then most guys in the NBA.
My point was just that there is a lot of hyperbole with him. People love him or hate him. I don't get why this is. which is why I get involved in all the Rondo discussions I guess.
Because Rondo is Mercurial. This is how he will be. He has the ability to outshine everybody and dominate the game. And then be downright mediocre the next game. That is why he is easy to love and hate. If he was consistently mediocre, he will be another ordinary player.
The ability to dominate a game has a lot more value over consistent mediocrity. Doc loves Rondo. Why? I don't know. But I guess that Doc remembers his first coaching job and playoff series. The ordinary 8th. place Magic took the top-tier Pistons to the limit because TMac played special for a few games and dominated the proceedings. Doc has talked about playoff game winners and how they are special.
I hope that the Celts do well without Rondo this year. I am also OK if Danny trades him. But there is no denying that Rondo is special and Danny better get appropriate return for him.
