[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rondo's Jump Shot : Ok, I see how you came to your conclusions. You should check out the ESPN shot chart because it shows the distance of that jump shot. There are some entries that show 5 foot jumper. I'm not counting those although the "play-by-play" may count that as a jumper. The shot chart does include 3-point shots because to evaluate Rondo's jumper, you have to include those too. But I see your premise which is valid. I definitely don't count the FG% simply because he gets alot of layups. It will be interesting to see what the Celtics do with Rondo. He's at that point where there should be some marked improvements in obvious facets of his game and they just aren't there in his shooting.

No one complains about Rose's and Westbrooks jump shots and yet their field goal shooting percentages from 10 feet and out are lower than Rondo's this year. Below numbers were taken from Hoopdata.
Big difference is in the number of shots taken per game.-----Rondo-4.4,,,,,Westbrook-8.4,,,,,Rose-8.9.
Maybe its time for Rondo to shoot more frequently.Who knows! Maybe he can add a little more offensive variety to the offense.
