I wonder if RR has some incriminating or deeply embarassing pictures of Doc, KG and PP (among others) who appear to think the world of him in public. Reading some of the comments on RR, it looks like we have a lot of posters who have spent a lot of time in C's huddles and locker-room, and have had 1-1 dinners with DA, Doc, KG, PP and others where they have unloaded their true feelings about RR!
What we have on this board are some want-to-be psychologist who over analyze situations and stretch facts their way. It's amazing how folks say KG can work miracles with players they would like to come here who have questionable character, but I guess he can't straighten out Rondo. Hmmmm it doesn't add up.
The bottom line is the team has had a lot of injuries and started slow, righted the ship, went into a slump and are limping into the playoffs and will be bounced in the first round.
DA is a liar because he kept PP, KG, and RA together too long and rebuilding will not be easy with the new CBA. KG and PP should come off the bench and JG and JS should start. We need a 6'11" or bigger banger down low.
true. i just dont understand how people take players words and opinions and accept them, UNTIL it is about Rondo, then everyones lying. Everyones a liar. Danny Ainge is a liar. Doc's a liar. Jason Terry's a liar. KG's a liar. PP is a liar. Avery Bradley's a liar. Keyon Dooling is a liar. Kendrick Perkins is a liar. Shaq is a liar. M. Pietrus is a liar. And of course, Rondo himself is a liar.
the funny thing is, if these guys said the same thing about Jeff Green, everyone would flock and be all over it, talking about how great of a player and person he is, even tho HE TOO wears the empty expression on his face the majority of the time.
No, it is marketing koolaid. It does no one any good to tear down a company asset in public. Whether that person is Ray Allen, Rondo, or someone else, that person has has value as a player, as a trade chip, or for the image of the organization. When have you ever heard Danny or Doc tear down a company asset. It would be a stupid thing to do.
If you go back to the Houston game, in the first half, Rondo's man was winning the game almost single handedly, In the second half, Rondo played defense. In his post game interview, Terry game Pierce the game ball for stepping in at half time and telling a player to listen to Doc, he is trying to coach. That player was arguing with Doc at the time. No specific name was mentioned, but it is hard to imagine anyone but Rondo arguing with Doc at that time.
While these are just examples of Rondo's efforts this year, they represent an obvious trend that is there for everyone to see, if you just look without the rose colored glasses.
This is not the NCAA where coaches are like gods. This is the NBA, a players league, where stars, many tiimes, have more clout that coaches. Coaches can be replaced more easily.
As Doc has said, all NBA stars want to win the championship, but most are not willing to do what it takes. They want to win on their own terms. Rondo wants to win, but he must be the star. That may change moving forward, or it may not.
