Look...once and for all...if all you Rondon't apologists would simply admit the truth. Rondon't was the 4th wheel on a three HOF player team. He barely meant more to that team than did a no offense guy named Perk and only because Perk's sole value was as an interior enforcer. Admit it. If guys wanted to come to Boston to play with him, as they have been quoted through the years, they'd be here once they attain FA status. NONE HAVE COME! And all these GM's claiming to mouth water over the guy HAVE REFUSED TO MAKE DEALS FOR HIM.
The guy is not chopped liver but neither is he Grade A Sirloin. There are at least ten better PG's in today's NBA. He doesn't suck, but his shooting drawbacks and ball hogging reduce him to nuisance status. We'll never win anything with him because he feels himself bigger than the team, indispensable to Celtic victory. That is a joke.
The Celtics have spoken but you refuse to listen. They drafted his replacement. They'd love to trade him and probably will. If not, they will be happy to let him walk and replace his slot with someone else for the cap space they'll have. OPEN YOUR EYES!
You refuse to accept the fact that you are a Rondo hater, plain and simple. Haters decide that because they dislike someone, they will say anything to voice their displeasure and try to get people to agree with them.
1. "If guys wanted to play with Rondo, they would come to Boston and they don't." THIS. IS. IDIOTIC. LOGIC.
2. "GM's have refused to trade for him." What proof do you have of these claims? What proof do you have that Danny put Rondo on the trading block and no one wanted him? Danny has said, despite nameless rumors, that the only time he actually offered Rajon Rondo, it was for CP3. and no one would have a complaint about that, maybe not even Rondo.
3. "He barely meant more to the team than Perk." This is where I figure out that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, and you just talk to talk. I will enjoy watching you suffer when Rondo destroys the league this year, whether its on the Celtics or another franchise.
I agree with your 3 points, would love to see Rondo stay myself, but he has to sign a deal at a discount, 2yrs/$28M extension for Rondo is what I want to hear, not another of these moronic trades for spare parts, the only Rondo trades I like are the ones that involve a major player of his status coming back to Boston, I think maybe Rondo and Eric Bleadsoe getting swapped for each other is the best possible trade.....but would rather hear that Rondo has bought in and signed at least a 2 yr extension to have Rondo locked up for 3 yrs
You are spot on about that hater with a hard on for Rondo. He doesn't know what he's talking about. Just a miserable old man with too much time on his hands. No, Rondo is not perfect but he's a hell of a lot better 95% of the "pure" point guards in the league.
Rondo is one of the most unique Celtics ever, his game is the most like Jason Kidd, whose game was actually the most like Larry Bird's , which means that yeah......Rajon Rondo is right up there with Larry Bird in his ability to impact the game and within Celtics history, one of the most unique and gifted players to ever wear a Celtic uniform......if he has to go, they HAVE TO get a major player back for him......either way, Celtics are going to be much better this season than last year.
