In Response to Re: Rondo Haters repent : Petey, listen to yourself..one game? so yesterday was the first good game rondo has had in his career? so last night was Rondo's BEST game of his career? he does this time, and time, and time again. the only active player with more playoff triple doubles than Rondo is Jason Kidd. right now he is tied with LEBRON JAMES. can this really mean nothing to people?? the problem is, people only care about shooting. ppl say his triple double the other night wasnt good bc of 7-22. guys, basketball isnt only about shooting the ball. TRIPLE-double, which means he had 2 other categories in which he had at least 10! thats a complete game to me. thats doing a little bit of everything. i honestly am more impressed by a 15,15,14 night than i am a 35,7 and 5 night. some get so mesmerized by seeing a player score every time down the court, that they miss the value of a "stat-sheet stuffer". Rondo does a bit of everything. he is among the best rebounders in the NBA at his position, has led the league in steals one year and was the NBA assists leader this year. Rondo has gotten so good that ppl dont even blink when he continuously has 13 or 14 assist nights. 14 assists? people, players dont do that! and he does it ALL THE TIME..and sprinkles in 16-24 assist games every once in awhile. thats greatness! Lebron James gets so much credit as being the best in the league not bc of his scoring ability, but bc he can score while also having rebounding and passing abilities, and defense. he gets it done in every category, and is praised for it. yet Rondo is continually bashed for only having an average jumpshot? petey, im sorry, but saying "bc of one game" is extremely ignorant and close-minded (and i respect your opinions and posts on these boards)
. he does this all the time and VERY consistently in the playoffs..its time to start recognizing it. ull have to show me when Russell Westbrook has ever done nething like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDGwG7HL8b4

Jamez, if you truly respected my opinion, you might not attack me (or it) as extremely ignorant and close-minded especially when you take what I said out of its intended context.
video and I were having an exchange and I initially suggested that I do not believe that AFTER Rondo's game 4 where he FINALLY showed the ability to hit the perimeter shot that we should launch another "Rondo's the best in the NBA
" tirade supported by a Yahoo article. In that initial post, I alluded to his awesome final 20 or so games of the season. I alluded in another post in this thread that it really did not matter because he is the best PG for this Celtics team and I'm glad we have him.
video acknowledged that although I don't hold my tongue about Rondo, he doesn't consider me a hater.
Now, those were exchanged between video and me.
If you take my last post on its own merit and respond with no knowledge of the previous exchanges on this thread AND THEN label me (or my opinion) extremely ignorant and close-minded, then you DO NOT respect my opinion.
But it's all good because although I may disagree with you about something (and I do respect your opinion), you will never hear me get personal. That's why I stay away from the trolls and enjoy my exchanges with the likes of you and others.
I'm over it. More insightful exchanges to come!
