You know things are quiet around here when a story comes out via Shaq that when the Celtics met Obama in March that the President yelled out to Ray Allen "You better take Rondo out and teach him to shoot." This according to Garnett who stated, Rondo was so humiliated it caused him to go into a shooting funk the next day leading the way to his incredibly poor shooting from March to the season's end.  This was the cause according to Shaq and not the trade of Perkins that led to his dispirited play.

Pud and Dudder will not be surprised and more likely heartened, but Rondo needs to be shooting every free minute he has.  Obama seems surprisingly bold and maybe needs to be more empathetic considering the dire state of the economy that is stalling.
