In Response to Re: I don't believe RR : I think you a missing some of my point. Game two the Celtics with and yes Rondo had seven turnovers and your team was lucky to win a one point game. I am just saying stats can be decieving. Just like Kobe scoring 38 pts on 35 shots. I am not saying he is not a great player, simply saying he has flaws too and stats are not everything. If he wants to be the star he has to finish it off , not just put up stats. When everything is going bad late that is when the superstars do their thing. RR having the ball in his hands most of the time he has to produce at the end of games. No one else can do it unless they have the ball. You just have him on too high a pedistal and you take it too personal. Most know how good he is. If I have upset you like I have seen many times on this board i apologize.

haha im not upset, your post explained more on what you were trying to say.
everyone thinks that i think Rajon is this perfect player who can do no wrong, and i dont at all. i know he has flaws, i know he gets careless with the ball at times, i know he needs to work on his free throw shooting, and i know when he is passive his shooting isnt that great either.
but what i also know is that he is greatly overcriticized on this board. it goes way overboard to the point where, in order for him to get credit he basically has to have a historic triple double each game. his assist numbers are insane, first off, INSANE. yet noone blinks at a 14 or 15 assist performance nemore, bc he has done it so many times. he is the BEST passer in the NBA, yet noone thinks that matters or is an accomplishment in its own. he is a top 2 rebounding point guard in the NBA, again, means nothing. He can get to the basket anytime he wants, yet it doesnt matter bc its not a jumpshot. he calls the defensive and offensive sets during the game, not alot of players get that right, its almost ALWAYS the coach..yet people act like he is not a smart player.
that is what gets me fired up on this board, the disrespect and disregard shown for his game, while others on the team continually get a pass. if everyone was receiving equal criticism for mistakes, i would be okay. But tis not the case. i feel like Rajon is judged on a game by game basis, and its not right for a guy thats already done so much for the team at only 26. He is the best and most important player on our team, but he is not seen as a "sure celtic." by this i mean, if he had a couple bad games tonite and wed and the celts lost the series, the calling for him to be traded in the offseason would be ENORMOUS. yet, if KG, or Paul, or AB have bad games? shrug.
