[QUOTE]Rondo is a better fit for this Celtic team than Rose is. But since Rose won't be goin to Boston we'll never know for sure, will we.

It is a joke, naive, ill-informed, and uneducated to suggest somehow that a lesser player is a better fit for a team in any situation, any situation, any situation..... talent is talent is talent is talent and the more a team has the higher likelihood of winning.
Ask KG, Pierce, and Allen how they like being automatically doubleteamed as a result of having a less complete player playing center and point guard.
The mentality that somehow the Cs would not be a lot better with Brook Lopez or Noah at center and Rose, Paul, Williams, Nash, Kidd, Curry, Evans, and a whole bunch of others at the point is simply ridiculous.
Rondo is a perfect fit for this team but if there were at least a dozen other point guards available to the Cs they would be no worse off and in a lot of cases better.
Rondo is not perfect for this team, the team is perfect for Rondo - the 4 hall of famers he starts with hide his weaknesses.
I saw a poll on Foxsports yesterday asking who would you want for a point guard and Rondo was not even in the poll.
Foxsports had Rondo as the #9 point guard in the league.
Give me either of the Rockets two point guards playing tonight and the Cs are no worse off. There is no more overrated player in the leauge than Rondo - he doesn't make anyone better and that to me is the definition of how good a player is. When Rondo was in high school his 4 starting teammates were already headed to the hall of fame.
Only on this board is Rondo the #1 point guard in the league. And only on national broadcasts where the unprepared-stats-reviewing-experts is Rondo even considered in the discussion.
As he has displayed tonight and just about every other night, he is the worst shooter in the league and requires almost no defensive assignment in the half court offensive set.
He gave up an uncontested layup for an assist....... what a joke.
