    The NO RONDO effect....How is this happening?

    Excellent read. The words of an EXPERT, former NBA player, and analyst who sees what we do and expalins the realities of life without RONDO:

    We can all see it.

    Rondo is an egomaniac who thinks he is the shiz neezal.

    He dribbles 20 seconds off the shot clock on offense and constantly gets beat on defense.

    We are better off without him.



    I'd rather he not be on my favorite team!

    We are winning w/o Rondo on pure adrenalin, teamwork, joy, guts, good defense, hustle and focus... AKA fundamental basketball Celtic style. 

    R9R lovers say.... "But it won't last. Sooner or later Cs will lose. Proving that we aren't better w/o Rondo."

    Or as DA sez... "We're not better, we're just different."

    Memo to DA

    6-0 IS different than 0-6! 

    6-0 is way different.... and way better too.

    Get your head out of you azz, DA,  and smell some fresh air.

    They are obviously playing way better without Rondo right now and they do seem energized.

    This is the same conversation over and over again, but them playing better without him right now doesn't mean it is going to continue.

    No one is going to know that for months.

    I agree they are playing better although they couldnt have been playing much worse before this current streak... I do like the ball movement since Rondo has been gone and I think Doc needs to send him that message when he returns.

    This thread though, is really not about better movement its just to criticize Rondo...

    Dude,

    How do you even know what they are saying? Magic, Shaq, and Barkley have hardley even mastered the english language combined! At least DM is a reputable public speaker who ANALYZES the Cs EVERY DAY! Those other guys are superstars justifying the stats of another  supposed "Superstar". They don't care about the Cs as a team nor do they study them for a living. And as the three guys you mentioned would say, "Da Seautics cain't ween widdout Wondo!" Whatever....6-0 is all the proof we need. This thread is about the article that shows an inteligent summation of the situation. NOBODY HATES RONDO.

    But Snake, We make assesments based on the available facts. Based on a reasonable amount of available facts, the Celtics ARE, as in RIGHT NOW, a better team without him. Sure we can wait and see if it lasts, but the same goes for one's marriage. Only time will tell on anything.

    Re: The NO RONDO effect....How is this happening?

    I don't think you can't just factor in Rondo going down as the reason for our recent surge. Doc KG,PP,Rondo since they have been together have won 1 championship,were cheated out of a 2nd and got screwed in the ECF last year so they were collectively thinking , if it ain't broke don't fix it.We had a new bench that was more well rounded and versatile than last years and by late Feb early March we  turn it on and viola!

    Then Rondo missed a game and we beat the Heat, later Sullinger went down and we got some more wins vs meh opponents,now we have won six with bench outscoring the starters and people are saying it was Rondo holding us back. I disagree, it was the combination of our core that wanted all our new players just to have niche roles. Having Rondo and Sully go down we were forced to adapt are strategy and the collective talents that we have aquired and we have flourished so far. I"m thinking DA was thinking this was going to happen next year not this. Neccessity has acelerated Docs',PP and KGs openess to trying a different approach, even still you it down the stretch where the ball sticks in PP and KGs hand a little too much.  They are our go to guys but they are past the point of having the D  know what they're going to do but couldn't stop it. If we can add some buyout or pick up a deep reserve, if not I think we can get better as a team and beat any team in the playoffs.

    You're right but that is the perfect analogy. YOu start dating a new girl, or you get married and everything is perfect.  then after a few months you start looking for hitmen on the internet.

    I don't know how good as an analyst DM is. But if you believe in Magic words, there are at least 100 best players in the league.

    Shaq and Barkley are kind of a waste. I keep thinking, Can't they come up with someone better?

     

    Shaq is a total waste, Barkley is at least funny at times. Barkley did have some great things to say about Bob Cousy, on a show i watched a couple days ago.

    Re: The NO RONDO effect....How is this happening?

    Barkley shoots straight, hes not trying to protect anyone...  Hes outspoken and says alot of things many other will not.. he gets things wrong too but that comes with the territory when ur offering your opinion about everything.

    Shaq also gives some great insights and not afraid to speak his mind....  knows the game

    Magic has lost alot of credibility imo in the way he sizes up teams and players... has been wrong so often and flip/flops just as often

    the writing is on the wall. Rondo is the most over rated player in the history of the Celtics organization. he would never fit into this 'old school' teamwork approach to winning. ship him out of town.
