In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
"Just remember how we blossomed last season when Rondo went down.. ball was moving, guys were working off each other cause they knew they would get touches and be part of the game..."
Hmm I preferred watching the team with Rondo in the playoffs actually winning games. The job of a coach is to get the most out of players and challenge them when they are not playing the right way. Doc should have benched Rondo if Rondo wasn't playing the right way. It's not just about team attitude, otherwise five guys could play from the park down the street.
Oh, and you forgot to mention that Avery Bradley looked lost without Rondo and did not play well at all without him. They raised each other's game, but without Rondo the much-hyped Bradley looked very ordinary.
But anyhow Rondo not playing until January works out well, we need to rack up losses and get the young guys time and head right for the lottery.
And before doc
failed to bench Rondo for not playing the right way, we had Tubby Smith
at U.K failing to bench Rondo for not playing the right way.
And before Tubby Smith failed to bench Rondo for playing the right way, we had his HS coaches at Eastern HS and Oak Hill Academy failing to bench Rondo for not playing the right way.
The only coach with the cahones to bench Rondo for not playing the right way was Coach K and Rondo quit on Coach K and left the 2010 FIBA team.... BooHoo... that then flourished in Rondo's absence.
There seems to be a pattern here.
Defiant, strong willed player.... combined with.... weaked kneed HS, college, NBA coaches who fail to challenge/require R9R to play the right way.
Hmmmmmm.... Spanky seems to prefer watching a team with a spoiled brat at PG actually winning in the PO's.
Hmmmmmm.... I prefer not watching a spoiled brat play at all.... ever... under any circumstances... in a Celtic uniform.
It has to do with my sense of Celtic pride.
(Besides, Rondo was born to be a Laker instead. They deserve one another.)
And now we have a fresh faced rookie NBA coach challenged to journey where no man has ever gone... to somehow channel Rajon Rondo's defiance into a constructive team mode?
Good luck to you, Brad.
