In Response to Rondo is A Diva
Rondo was not so great to watch after the game. Cloaked in a towel, he came to his locker several times while a large group of reporters waited to ask him his thoughts. He said nothing, then disappeared into the trainer’s room. Then he came out to get something to drink. Then he disappeared again. This went on for more than an hour until longtime Celtics publicist Jeff Twiss announced that Rondo did not feel like talking. The kid is a diva. I know it sounds silly to call him that when he can play basketball with a dislocated elbow, but it's the truth .

Rondo is, as I have said many times in this forum, also the best point guard in the Association, bar none
. I don't have to regurgitate his stats for you, but a few salient ones you may want to ponder are 32 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds!!! The free throw shooting, the outside shots, the steals, the assists-turnover ratio are all indicative of the best. How many triple doubles for the pretenders -- DRose, DWill, CP3, whatever the fella's name is in OKC, old as Steve Nash, JKidd, et al? Did anyone hear what Tom Thibodeau or Paul Pierce had to say? (See below)
Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau, who watched Rondo up close for several seasons as a Celtics assistant, said, “Rondo’s a great player. Even if you are defending him well, he still has the ability to make great plays.’’
Celtics captain Paul Pierce added, “When he’s assertive, aggressive, the way he plays, the way he played tonight, we’re a tough team to stop. When he’s out in transition, pushing the ball, taking the shots right there, the mid-range, rebounding, he’s just all energy. He’s one of those guys when he plays with a lot of energy, he’s so tough ’cause he can rebound the ball well. He just did it all. He was great to watch.’’
Love it when a plan comes together. Enough said for now about the "best point guard in the Association, bar none." Banner #18 will hang in the Garden in June!!!!!!!!!!
