[QUOTE]In Response to Re: To All The Rondo Haters : All I can say after reading this post is that all the pundits, Doc and us Rondo lovers are all wrong and Acie is right. Or vice versa. Come to think of it...more likely vice versa.

The Rondo lovers - and I am not a Rondo hater - I don't think there are Rondo haters - what I think is there Rondo Replacements Would Be Better....
Rondo creates a double team every time he touches the ball.
After the playoffs Doc said Rondo's inability to shoot really hurt them in the playoffs.
In my opinion Rondo single handedly cost them the finals. Many posters feel that Rondo's positives outweighs the negatives and I completely disagree.
He routinely passess up routine jumpers that every point guard in the league makes, he routinely passes up layups because he is shooting 43% from the line, nobody guards him in the half court set, etc.
Give me Harris, Nelson, Jennings, Rose, Augustin, Evans, Davis, Kidd, Paul, Wall, Curry, Nash, Terry, Westbrook, Udrih, and a whole bunch of others and the Cs are no worse off. Their offense may take a minor step back but their offense may take a giant step forward.
The amount by which Rondo is overrated is inconceivable.
Imagine Rondo penetrating and kicking the ball out to Tony Allen - clang - no assist, kick the ball oout to Wilson Chandler instead of Pierce - clang - no assist - alley oop to Tukoglu - clang - no assist.... pass to Nazr Mohammed - clang - no assist........ what crazy things would happen if Rondo has teammates like this and he was actually guarded and actually forced to shoot actual shots that are guarded by someone as opposed to being completely uncontested pretty much every time the team is in the half court set...... oh some would find out (what many of us know) he is the worst shooter in the league and oh by the way if he was 2% less athletic he would be the back up on every bench in the league.....
