In response to R9R's comment:
I 100% expect Rondo to have a chip on his shoulder. How could he not? A lot of people throughout the NBA think that Rondo was carried by RA, PP, KG and Doc. Add that to the ACL injury ... and he has a lot to prove. He thinks he is the best, and he will aspire to that.
This is why I think there's a 50/50 chance that we contend next year (2014-15),
Rondo comes back better. Jeff takes the next step into an allstar. Bradley shines next to Rondo. Olynyk and Sullinger shock everyone with their skill, being NBA ready and ability to spread the floor beautifully.
On top of that, we will still have Wallace (who is essentiall a starting SF coming off the bench as a 6th man), Courtney Lee (who I think had the worst season of his career last year and will definitely turn it around), Brandon Bass (who was essentially a starter for a contending team and is a solid option at PF) and the two young SGs (Crawford and Brooks can really score, one of them will outshine the other, lets hope its Brooks).
On top of that, we have two first round picks next year
On top of that, we have cap space to go out and put in a QO on a guy like Monroe/Sanders/Cousins or sign Bogut or depending on where other teams are at, I think we may even have enough assets at that point to put a nice package together for Love/MGasol/Noah
Rondo is all about me me me. Now with nobody around him to take the spotlight... Watch out.....They will need two basketballs because he ain't given one up. Rondo will NOT !!!! last the season in Celtic green........
lmaoooo...so the point guard who leads the league in assists, constantly rewarding guys for running the floor and making crisp cuts, is all about me me me?
I believe what he may be ultimately referring to is Rondo's singular speciality-passing. Of course he can rebound because there's no one around to put a body on him(we all know why). Anyone w/ his speed can easily gather 4-5 bounds a game due to this fact. Anyone putting in his minutes also gets @ least 2/gm just being on the floor. He should actually be averaging more bounds a gm if he wasn't doing his reach around thing that we've all done when getting beat. These circumstances leaves the defense exposed if he somehow doesn't get a whiff of the ball. It's like a defenseman in hockey who tries to get offensive and misses. Only one defenseman in hockey history was able to pull this off w/ any consistency. I've seen Bobby Orr. Rondo is no Bobby Orr. Even Larry Joe knows that.
