    Is Rondo being groomed to be a player coach?

    With all these like-dislike opinions about RR that seem to be dominating this site, are we really missing what is really happening here? Player coaches are generally extinct but with some personal humility and a bedside manner I can only believe that  (RR) is a one of a kind possibility for the position..

    Sharing Coach and player positions take a very special talent and it seems that he is already an assistant coach/player.

    The result would be a combined salary and part time (never bored) super player that would lead to developing another top tier PG, AB?

    Just a thought.

    They don't allow player coaches in HS.

    On second thought you could be right.  He could be player coach for the ---------------LAKERS.    Maybe he would have to stones to call out KOME.  Brown on the other hand calls out KOME for taking horrible shots in a loss.  KOME when asked about it says ''whatever"   Brown finds out it pi$$ed KOME off so he retracts his statement and says KOME too "good shots"   Mike Brown is a "huge belly laugh" as well.

    Ha!   I see that according to the contract ..no paid player coaches. Guess AJ was the last to receive OJT.

    Hey, better positive thoughts versus some of the brain dead drivel that I see here.

    Brain dead.... hardly.

    Actually my brain is showing a feeble delta rhythm... just about now!

    How about R9R as a shooting coach at say the JV level?

    Rondo needs to change the course of his career before he can coach.  He quit on his team 13 months ago.  I am rooting for him now but don't remind me with this nonsense.  He needs to grow up and play consistently.

    You are probably right. Just too bad.. with the right maturity and mindset he is one of the few players that could pull it off.
    Best!

    After last years playoffs there is one thing you can say about Rondo..he is not a quitter! I also think he needs to be more consistent and gain some humility .This is not a mystery folks just have some more patience. If they trade him now they might as well blow up the team and it's back to square one. Not my idea of progress!

    Gain humility????  Why and how so?

    Maybe getting traded would serve that purpose.

    "with the right maturity and mindset, he could pull it off". Lol. Is that all he needs? Seems like those are pretty fundamental skills . With a foot more of height, better speed, strength, athleticism, and shooting skills, I could be a good basketball player..!!

    no chance, no chance whatsoever. Rondo has his positives but coach doesn't come to mind.

    Before that happens he should develop a jump shot.

    R9R's Js are usually short or slide off to one side.... just like my John Holmes imitation.

      I don't think a player/coach would work these days or ever again.  Not for a contending team.

      Also, I know I'm ......... into the wind here, but lets just enjoy this latest stretch of play Rondo is producing.  for as much as some around the league and others continue to be eager to write him off, he just won't go away, and keeps coming back to make everyone take notice.  There's got to be something to it. 

     Matter of fact, I can't recall anyone else whose game has been this questioned yet continues to show the league that when the lights come on, and there's all-stars on both sides, it's Rondo that shines the brightest.

    Free throw %? To me, that's the biggest issue with rondo. If he could shoot better than about 75% from the line, I don't think anyone would be terribly concerned if his shooting from the field never improved. He has got to get better at his free throws. He has the ball in his hands to much for that to be a liability?

    Doc was a career 78% free throw shooter..worlds above rondo. and i agree. so far this year i have not had an issue with Rondo's jumpshooting, its his Free Throws that need to improve.
