Incredible, he is an embarrassment for game 1, the opponent's point guard who happens to have the same number of rings and went o 6 straight conference finals - whose nickname is Mr. Big Shot - is injured and Rondo has a couple of good games against a second year guy..... wow.. I am so impressed.
When every game is against the Washington Generals and all is scripted and then there are ups and downs we can always attribute it to what is going on internally but then of course, we may want to look at what is actually happening with the opponent and perhaps realize the opponent is not a bunch of nameless faceless guys.....
Of the remaining series I would only take Miller, Kidd, Westbrook, Paul, Billups (healthy), Hinrich, Rose, Terry, Collison, Conley Jr., and Nelson and not be any worse off and of course be much better in some situations. Somehow making shots, making 3s, making free throws, not avoiding and or making shots is not a negative but a positive and it is construed as Rondo being unselfish as opposed to um... being completely unable to perform the most basic job responsibilities. I can see it in the locker room.. Pierce goes over to Rose and says "hey when the shot clock is running down don't make a hero pass, just make a routine jumper".... um Paul I make jumpers all the time..... I can of course see when KG goes up to Westbrook and says hey make a couple of f n free throws and Westbrook says hey I made 14 of 15 in the last game what do you think I am a Rondo or something...... I can see when Kidd makes 3 after 3 after 3 like Nash makes every shot humanly possible and Ray and Paul and KG take him aside and say "hey what do you think is going on here, why do you keep making shots?" Well I am not sure what other guys you have played with but I can shoot and lead the league in assists and make jumpers and 3s all the time....."oh s hit really, we were somehow supposed to believe that nobody could do that and that Rondo was some sort of great point guard that could do it all.... except shoot, finish, make 3s, make freebies, make uncontested jumpers, blah blah blah...."
Playing his best at this time of year? Is that how it goes when the other team is a 6 seed and their starting point guard is out? Wow let's hope that continues.
I cannot wait until LeBron dominates the Cs in the next series and Rondo is the leading scorer in every game and the Cs lose all the games and we can read about how Rondo has been the leading scorer and somehow the Cs have a distinct advantage at the point.... when LeBron is the MVP runner up and is the point guard and Rondo ensures that his team loses the next series as he did in the finals last year.
He is such a pass first point guard, you know the kind that is a pass first point guard ummmm because he cannot do all the things that even average point guards do but somehow qualifying him as a pass first guy it means he is better in some minute way than his peers who ummmmm.... keep playing in the playoffs after he starts working on his next level of roller skating.
