    Teams don't want Rondo, like they

    did not want Tony Alllen.  Both players would have been gone by now, but no trades for equal or better talent could be worked out.  That is the reason that we will be looking at Rondo next year.  Tony is gone but if you noticed we did not get anything of value for him because there was nothing of equal or better value offered by other teams. Rondo plus Glen and a first round choice might fetch something, but we would be giving up more that we would get back.  So sign as many of our players as we can because we do not have the money of players to make signifiant trades.

    I don't have any problem watching Rondo next year -- been through too many PGs the last 20 years to not want a decent one to stick around awhile. :-)

    Rondo has value to suggest that he doesn't is crazy. He will come back in the year to come with something to prove.  Hopefully his shooting will be priority number one.

    He is in his prime.

    Hopefully he will be trying to prove that trading him (for next to nothing BTW) was the biggest mistake the Cs ever made.

    Who knows.... maybe he will hit an open jumper or two next season.

    Some prime!

    Put Rondo on the open market and see how unwanted he is.  He has value since he is signed to a team-friendly deal.  Problem is, if you're trading him, you better get an equal PG back.  And you're not going to since he is at least a top 10 PG.  He has warts, but he has a lot of value.

    i mean really.  people have been saying this for FIVE YEARS about this guy and he comes back, for the last three years now, with a WORSE SHOT (check the stats!) than he had before!!!! 

    only in the insanity laden cushy world of modern professional basketball (on a team run by danny derainged) would a 55% free throw shooting "starting point guard" (remember when he became the no holds barred 'starter of the future'?) be accepted gladly and not have DEMANDS made upon him to increase his game to complete all around competency, not just excelling at what rondo is interested in.

    i am so tired of this yearly quagmire we find ourselves in and the people who engage in honestly believing that rondo is going to work hard and return the following season with an actual shot included in his game.  ain't gonna happen.

    what i say we do is prop up his offensive game with a string of nice looking fascade games early in the season and trade the guy.  if we can get any interest and get something decent and some high draft picks in return.

    in fact, call kevin mchale down in houston and see if he'll do us one more for the gipper.

    This attitude drives me crazy! The idea that Rondo is being lazy. Like he just isn't practicing his shooting enough. It's insane!

    He is what he is. Practice hones skills you already have. It can't create them. It would be like getting pissed that Brian Scalabrine didn't practice hard enough to challenge for the Slam Dunk competition.

    Rondo can't shoot. Not anymore than any of us could hit .400 in MLB. What you see is what you get. I seriously doubt effort has anything to do with it. More practice isn't going to change anything.

    What drives me crazy is when he shoots 15 footers with crucial games on the line. He knows he can't shoot and he does it anyway. talk about selfish, stupid and arrogant.

    Rondo is not getting traded. The only players worth trading him for are untouchable by their teams. Rondo's trade status could change with yet another year under his belt and the big three moving on, but that's not for at least another year or two. So Mary, Gary, and Acie, gather round your TV set and enjoy the team you have. Fantasy basketball might be another option.

    Circumstances force Rondo to shoot... and he does so typically under great duress. A good defense can take away everything away from him.... but the shot.

    I agree that he is selfish, stupid and arrogant.... but not for the reason you cite.

    If Rondo can fetch a top 10 PG in a trade... we can safely conclude that he is a top 10 PG himself. Otherwise, no.

    My vintage M/B 190SL is worth $35 thousand only if I can find a buyer at that price. Otherwise, like Rondo, it is likely overvalued.

    Supply and demand.

    Those aren't the types of shots I'm talking about. There were a few times last year when he took jumpers in tie games with less than a minute remaining. That shoud never happen.

    The one that stands out in my mind was with about 40 seconds left in a tie game. The thing that made it so incredibly stupid was that it was about 6 seconds into the shot clock. Garbage like that. I want to say it was against Dallas but I'm not sure. Either way, he missed and the Celtics ended up losing the game.

    Re: Teams don't want Rondo, like they

    The Celts tried to trade both Tony and Rondo but got no interesting deals.  The team is a a point were it needs a face change and a point guard that has a feared outside shot would do that.  I still think we can win it all next year but teams have decided how to defend us now and that is not to guard Rondo and double with his man, and this has worked.  With Chirs Paul or D. Williams are even Steve Nash this team's offensive attack would change a lot and it might or might not work.  But truth is noone is trading a top point guard for Rondo, but mabey with Rondo and that old sorry Glend Davis that many great basketball minds on this side hate , plus one of our first round choices might get Paul or Williams.  Something tells me that if we go with the same big four that we will be looking in the mirrow at this year. Ant that the truth you gerand postetrs.
