In response to mellymel3's comment:
Unreal...Love isn't here yet, Rondon't still sucks, can't shoot, can't drive the lane any longer, doesn't play D except to attempt to reach around guards to slap away the ball when they easily go around him, can't close out games with a lead with 2 minutes left and can't bribe a free throw into the hoop in the 4th quarter with all of Ballmer's $$$$.
Get over it....Rondo sucks big time...it's fact...if he was any good he'd have beaten out the OTHER headcase, Westbrook, to make it on the U.S. Olympic team. There were many a superstar on that team and I NEVER heard a single one of them then or now complain that Rondo should have made the team over Westbrook. Have you?
And Faux Hawk? When he plays a regular rotation and produces then I'll believe in him. He's got to make it this year or he's nothing but Fab Melo all over again. And right now, based on his court awareness and productivity, he's not any better than the Melo-one except he hasn't dented any door frames in Maine.
So Love took in a Red Sox game yesterday and hung out with Rondo... guess Love didn't hear that Rondo sucks. Laughable...
I assume that IF they do get Love and Rondo stays you'll stop rooting for this team (that's what you do right, root for this team?) because Rondo stinks so bad?
Rondo coming off a knee injury wasn't going to be considered for an Olympic team, moreover who cares, I don't want our players burning themselves out that way.
Your analysis of Fav's skill set is about as spot on as your assessment of Rondo, so it can't be taken too seriously. If you wanted to say he had injury issues that's one thing, but to say he had no "court awareness and productivity" when he played just makes you look clueless.
When he played, including starting the first six games of the year he was very good and productive for a rookie. His stat line per 36 minutes: 12 pts, 9 boards, 2 blocks and a steal. The 2nd game of the season he had 12 pts, 18 boards and 6 blocks.
The team saw what he had then shut him down for the remainder of the season, they tanked. So either you believe they tanked, or instead that mysteriously their best big man who started strong, with Brad Stevens calling him their best rim protector at one point just fell off at practice and couldn't play anymore. You can't say it happened on the floor because when he played he was very solid.
If Paul Pierce can go down with a mystery injury, Sebastian Telfair starts over Rondo, If Ryan Gomes is the starting power forward instead of Al Jefferson, if the team refuses to play Jefferson and Perkins together in 2006 than you can damn well believe they would tank AGAIN in a heartbeat to improve this team. I was here saying this in 2006, I've been here a long time making these kind of predictions and have survived... bar injury I'll be correct yet again.
