In Response to Re: Trade Rondo!
[QUOTE]Rondo and Baby for Chris Paul next year(KG's back up comes from Clippers pick), once NO realizes they can't resign him(just like Utah with Deron). Until then Rondo still needs to work on his shooting. It worked for Rose in the off season. Other than that, very good game for Rondo last night. Good game 1 as well. PA

Baby is a free agent therefore the Cs do not have the right to trade him. If Chris Paul would agree to a trade, my guess is that it would be to a team that has a chance to win now and for a long time. The Cs window is just about to slam down on Danny's knuckles. I can see CP3 and his posse sitting around right now thinking "let's see they have Wafer, Bradley, they just got the 22nd pick from the Clippers, they got their own 20th pick, they have Delonte West, Glen Davis.... wow - let's go to Boston".........
Rondo has had 4 offseasons to learn how to shoot - ummmm, he can't shoot.
It worked for Rose because like many other players there is a desire to get better and round out their game. Rondo already thinks he is the best and also thinks that shooting doesn't really matter. Rondo is like a blind person, he cannot see so he has heightened senses of hearing, smelling, touch, and taste. But in his case his lack of sight also includes a lack of hearing and smelling but he has great touch and taste and somehow having great touch and taste skills he is completely devoid of the other 3 and somehow that keeps him in the discussion of elite company.
Rondo and the posters here are the only people on the planet that do not realize how much pressure he causes for the offense.
During game 1 the announcers made several comments re. the Knicks having to play defense 5 against 4 because of Rondo.... of course this is lost on most on BDC and then they hold up the rare good game as an example of how amazing Rondo is but the head is planted firmly in the sand when Rondo plays the last 25 games of the season shooting about 35%, never taking or making 3s, never taking or making free throws.... the excuse - they don't need him to score - there is plenty of scoring... well unless of course you realize that their offense is pathetic against good defensive teams and that they were about the 20th ranked scoring offense in the league.
90% of the time ignore the evidence and then when there is 1 game to support your position.... raise your head up and exclaim how everyone else is wrong...... well if wrong means wrong 10% of the time then maybe it means they are right......
I liken it to a spelling bee...... my kids get 20 words per week, spell it-use it in a sentence - spell it. My daughter has never gotten a word wrong and her teacher gives her an extra 10 words per week at two grades above her level.
So the Rondo-ites watch Rondo bow out of the spelling bee in the second round every week and then every 10 weeks or so he wins the spelling bee and is crowned the greatest speller in the history of the world.
Rondo's great game last night was not even close to CP3s game 1 performance but on BDC it is not only the greatest game ever but one that has been repeated over and over again but somehow some of us have missed those games..... ummmm.... because they very rarely happen in reality but on BDC it is a nightly occurence.
I remember when my kids were young and during the winter I would sit and watch golf with a nice fire going with one kid on each side of my lap and my wife would say why do you keep watching golf and I said I don't watch golf, I am watching Tiger because most people have never and may never see this again....... this is what the Rondo-ites would like us to believe. What we are really watching is Stewart Cink. Cink plays for Boston, Tiger plays for NO, NJ, Dallas, Pho, OKC, and CHI... Cink also plays for Orlando, the Clippers, the Kings, the Pacers, and a whole bunch of others.
