In Response to Rondo.......stats don't lie
[QUOTE]For those who think that Rondo is an elite all star guard take a look at his progression for the 5 years he has been in the league 06-07 07-08 08-09 09-10 10-11 FG% 42 49 50 50 47 (second worst) FT% 65 61 64 62 54 (worst) FTA 184 175 268 282 107 (worst) TO 1.76 1.91 2.61 3.04 3.58 (worst) REB 292 322 416 360 262 (worst) To me these are all signs of poor work ethic, mental lapses, and laziness..........it appears he got his long term contract and is now resting on what laurels he had........and those at best were ok...........this laziness seems to be part of his egomaniacal nature at least from his day in college (thanks to olivern for the link) www.wildcatnation.net/forum/showthread.php?s=0e6626c9906f711f1ccc9cebe9cfd9dd&t=2740

over the summer we really need to unload this egomaniacal lazy self centered piece of you know what...........and get a real guard who fits the mold.......If Rondo put out the type of effort that he is capable of and would work on his game instead of thinking he is the greatest thing to set foot on the basketball court then he could amount to something.......unfortunately I do not think it is in his character...... Welcoming all opinions

In the last 15 games or so he is shooting about 35%, 8 points, 9 assists, ZERO % from 3, and below 50% from the line....... what is astounding to me is that the worst shooter in the league is somehow just now blaming a hand injury on why he is absolutely the worst shooter in the league...... he spends 88% of each game pounding the ball into the floor ensuring himself an assist and then all of a sudden his coach says start being more aggressive going to the hole, line, and making jumpers and then he somehow pretends he is Durant and that somehow the way he shoots matters....... either way... go change the diaper and grow up....... this is what he wants us to believe "I have never shown any perpensity to be able to shoot from anywhere other than, well, a dunk, and now I am claiming a pinky finger injury on why I can't shoot..."..."my entire existence depends on my ability to pass the ball because I cannot do what normal point guards do but my recent pathetic play results from an injury which of course would not affect the only thing I can do, pass...."..... the offense is absolutely pathetic and people still want to blame it on the defense even though they are giving up fewer points than ever.... let me guess Rondo does not need to score as long as he runs the offense effectively and there is plenty of scoring with KG, Pierce, and Allen......... further let me guess Rose has to score because Boozer, Deng, Noah, etc. cannot score.
I am so sick of the Rondo is deferring some of his game to make the team run efficiently....... I can't spell dog but the rest of my teammates can so I don't have to spell dog..... the fact is Rondo cannot spell dog and is not deferring any of his game to make sure the rest get their touches, etc. Rondo is very limited offesnively and overrated at the other end of the floor but we are supposed to shomehow believe that he is giving up some of his greatness to defer to his 3 hall of fame teammates. In other words, Rondo would be a 40 ppg scorer if Doc would just let him but given that they are averaging about 85 ppg lately they don't need to get points from Rondo and it would be somehow worse to have Nash, Kidd, Westbrook, Rose, Paul, Williams, Brooks, Udrih, Harris, etc........ I think depends are on sale this week, so I am psyched.
