In response to RallyC's comment:
In the interest of fairness, I figure it is only right to post a REAL assesment to what R9R is trying to do. These are not my words, even though they sound like what I've been preaching all year long. OK go ahead. I'm sure the RONDO BROTHERHOOD will bash the source and call BS. Page two of the article says it all:
That article ranks Rondo as #10.
The lost one, Karl, said Rondo is not even a top 10 PG in the NBA today.
Now, are you saying Karl is correct by saying Rondo is not a top 10 PG in the NBA today?
As of this very moment, Rajon Rondo is 20-23 and on an 8-game losing streak as the starting PG of the Boston Celtics since the beginning of the most recent NBA season. Rajon Rondo's losing streak only ended due to his ACL injury which he is presently rehabbing from. Coincidentally the Boston Celtics improved immediately and went on to win 7-in a row, 21 out of the next 38 and get into the play-offs despite not having a supposed top ten PG. That makes no sense! Rajon Rondo has lost 3-HOF starters from the team in the last year+. Rajon Rondo IS NOT PRESENTLY a top ten PG in the NBA based on his most recent clear inability to lead his team to success and then tearing his ACL. As a matter of fact, at this very moment, I would find it hard to imagine that he is realistically able to play basketball. As such, he isn't even in the top 30-NBA PGs. Until Rondo comes back and proves he can lead a team to winning without a handful of HOFers and be successful in excelling on defense, HE CANNOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO THE TOP 10. Now go ahead make all of the excuses you want. THESE ARE ALL FACTS. Go ahead Fierce, make yourself look like a fool by trying to justify your statements, or any of your favorite NBA TV analysts or "insiders" who claim that RR IS A TOP 10 PG RIGHT NOW. How can anyone in this world make that claim and be looked at seriously???.....Go for it baby! You can"t change the facts and the truth about the state of the situation. You just don't get it. This is the real world and you can't look past his inability to even play the game RIGHT NOW and there is no guarantee that he ever will be the same or even play again. And please, don't say "The fans voted him an allstar." Talk about TODAY, right now, and don't dismiss recent history as you seem to want to do. Lastly, if you use a single "IF" in your response, Then you will be proving that as of "today" as you clearly insist, that Rondo is not "today" what you claim and will be wasting everyone's time with a response, thats if you have the nerve to try to respond.........Rondos value today is not one of a top ten PG PERIOD.
