In response to gman101019's comment:
I think rondo has been waiting to be the man, the undisputed best player on the team. I think hes a perfect player to build around becuz hisbiggest strengths is making his teammates better/knowledge we r def gonna need both with all these inexperienced players.
He will really excel if stevens impleements an uptemp system for rondo to operate in. This is crucial, because with our lack of permiter shooting and lack of size we are gonna struggle in the halfcourt and will need our share of fastbreak/transition hoops.
R9R's not only been waiting to be the man beginning his 8th season now.....
he's been dilly-dallying,
going nowhere fast...
and of course....
Shhhhhhhhhhh..... Sleeping dogs need their rest.
That just speaks to the greatness of pp and kg. 2 of the greatest of all time. That a 4 time all star would still be taking a backseat to them. A lot of players would. With that said, when the playoffs came around rondo has been our best player and many times the best player on the court over the past few seasons.
Exhibit A: PAST 4 PLAYOFFS AVG OF 17PPG 10APG 7RPG 2STEALS
Exhibit B: see the struggle to score against the lowly knicks defense in the first round of the playoffs without rondo. Also the first time the celtics lost in the 1st round since the big 3.
As much as u hate on rondo, you cant argue with his playoff #s, he has CONSISTENTLY been one of the top performers in the playoffs. Few players actually INCREASE their production in the playoffs when your facing the best defenses/coaching/teams. But rondo does it across the board.
