[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Revisiting the Rondo and Big 3 theory : Jamez, i don't want to argue with you because I like RR and still hold out hope he can deliver points on a regular basis, but don't think for a minute that having KG, RR and RA out there doesn't open things up for him. Yes he makes some great passes , truly great passes but he gets about 5 assist from KG every nite, probably 3 from Paul, RA not as many as he used to but still get some. That opens it up and he takes advantage. I am just as big a PP supporter as you are a RR so lets not but head on this. The jury is still out on how RR will go in the future, Paul, KG and Ray we already know about and the shear fact they are still playing shows what they can do. With Ray gone have you seen the increase in what Paul does?

haha, absolutely no reason to argue, you are very reasonable in your observations!
im not ignorant enough to think that The Big 3 havent helped Rondo in his career at all, thinking that would be foolish and uneducated. the thing that irks me is when people say he is only effective BC of the big 3. logic would suggest that if that were true, Rondo would be declining each year as the big 3 are, when i think its quite obvious that he is developing himself into being a very good player, elite at his position. interestingly enough, its Brandon Bass that Rondo is getting the most assists from. altho very good, idk of anyone who is going to call Bass an elite player. he also was making Chris Wilcox look very good b4 his injury, and seems to be building chemistry with Ryan Hollins.
my point is that yes, its always a benefit of having good shooters on your team. but when you take into effect the amount of players Rondo is getting shots, you cant really place his success solely on the Big 3.
and thats not directed at you neccesarily,OneonOne, just making a general statement.
