[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Russell Westbrook: Dudder's Man : I must have missed something, did someone say Rondo was a "complete" point guard? I was just pointing out they are two different type pt guards. One is a me shoot first hold the ball pg, the other is not a great shooter (neither is Westbrook BTW) and the other doesn't create anything on a consistant basis. Kind of like KOME, shoots so much when he does pass it surprises everyone and he get a assist. This is not so much a knock on Westbrook as I would consider trading Rondo for him, for the fact that it probably would be a good trade for both teams. Westbrook would open things up (if he passed the ball) for the Big Three, Rondo would get everyone involved. Collison's points would go up 4 a game, Perks would go up 4 a game.

There are only two different types of point guards in Boston - one is one who cannot shoot, avoids shooting, cannot take over a game, cannot get to the line, cannot make free throws, cannot shoot 3s.... and the other is a complete point guard.
Rondo is the former - the term pass first point guard only exists in Boston, around the rest of the league it is referred to as a point guard.
With Westbrook the Cs are still playing, with Rondo OKC is working on Tornado Management and of course rollerskating.
How this is even debatable points to a level of ignorance which I simply cannot even comprehend.
Coach K sent Rondo how after saying "we cannot afford to have players on the floor that cannot shoot", Westbrook led the USA team to a gold medal. After losing to the Lakers in game 7 last year Doc said "Rondo's inability to shoot really hurt us in the playoffs".... game after game we have to hear national announcers laughing about how nobody guards Rondo but somehow, Westbrook, who nobody can guard is a problem.
This mindset absolutely defies logic - maybe in 3 years when Westbrook is Rondo's age and Westbrook is adding rings to his trophy case and Rondo is hoping somehow someway that Danny will get a KG or a PP or a Ray in the lottery we will actually see what happens. The difference is, I can already see it, the rest of you are wearing green glasses.
