[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Pass First vs. Shoot First; Rondo vs. Westbrook : You can post all the youtube videos all you want. It's not going to change the fact that Rondo is not fundamentally sound. Before you talk playoffs we have to make it to the playoffs first. I'm not a Rondo hater but you're way too biased about Rondo's abilities.

thats the thing you dont understand about me. if you were to tell me "hey, rondo isnt a good ft shooter." id be like your right. he should be better. if you tell me "hey, rondo isnt very good at 3 pointers." id be like sure, thats rite, it could help if he added that to his arsenal. but fundamentally sound? are you kidding me? his fundamentals are great. everything that he DOES do, he does it at the top of the league. floor general, no other pg does it like him. passing, near the top of the league, shooting, near the top of the league (considering how much he shoots, where he shoots from, look at his percentage), speed and quickness, near the top of the league, dribbling abilities, top of the league, rebounding, near top of the league for pg's, i mean come on. he is a great player! i dont understand how you cant see that. he DOES have flaws, everyone including me does that. but the things he does great greatly outweigh the things he does wrong. and he has led this team many many times, through tougher times then this..thru the playoffs!
im assuming your not a fan of tim tebow either rite? think hes a terrible qb just bc he doesnt do all the things a traditional qb does. well, im a fan. i understand there are things he needs to work on, but he is a great leader, great effort, heart, can run the ball, etc. and he is IMPROVING.
you cant knock Rondo just bc he doesnt do things the way other players do them. he doesnt get 25 pts by shooting threes, he gets 25 by cutting into the lane, taking jumpers, and driving to the basket. its still 25 points right? whats wrong with the way he gets his points? and whats wrong with him distributing, getting his teammates involved, and scoring when its needed? across the board, his numbers are better then any elite pg other then D Rose. ACROSS THE BOARD. THAT, is what makes you an ALL AROUND point guard. leadership, distributing, shooting. alot of pg score better then they distribute. with Rondo its the other way around. thats not a bad thing.
