[QUOTE]I started a thread a few weeks ago , Westbrook for Rondo and find some the homer post just too funny. It is Boston.com after all , you have to ecpect that. First off any comparison of RR/RW stats is an absolute loser of an arguement. One guy can hit it , one guy cant, fact , period! What serious person is going to try an argue that Westbrook's O isnt 100% better than RR. Heres another fact , NBA games are won in the last two minutes of the game. Im always going to take the guy that can create his own shot and hit. As opposed to a guy that cant even hit an open 12 foot jump. You guys love to praise him bc of his D , which is a complete joke considering the fact that the guy doesnt even play real D half the time. And its not recently either , the entire year guys have been getting past him. Whats even more of a joke is the fact that you also praise him for being such an elite pg when he pounds the ball into the ground waiting for HOF's to get open and come off screens. Do you have the same faith in him to do that when were rebuilding and dont have Ray Allen , PP or KG? This kid has real potential , for the talent he has , he should be playing at a high level imo. Not to mention the fact that he showed some real mental weakness when Perk got traded. He let everybody know how sad he was , how bad he felt. Like real people give a chit about a guy who will make tens of millions throughout his career despite his jump shot looking like a golf club after Barkley took a few hacks. And blaming Westbrook shows how little you know or actually watch , nevermind your bias. For all the love that KD gets he absolutely disappeared at times this series. Mavs would have sweep , it wouldnt even be close w/out Westbrook's O production. LOL OKC's best O was him in transition ... and thats pretty much it. The kid can hit anyway from 25 feet in , is as quick and as good as Rose taking it to the cup and was the leading rebounder among pg's. And lets remember how young he is. Again if your a serious person youll admit he is a better player as we speak and has more potential. Stop ignoring the obvious here , one guy is much more complete than the other. With the $ we have coming up , few decent draft picks / trades / FA's , this team could be a contender in 2 years instead of looking up at Mia/NY/Chi. From Boston here , die hard as they come thats why im suggesting this. I DO NOT want to see LJ kick our a $ $ for the next 6-7 years. Do you really want to hear NY after a Knick Championship? These teams are a few guys away from becoming dom. super teams. Think about it for a second , 6 of the best 10-12 players play in out conf. and are primed to takeover the East.

My hope is that when Rondo finally gets shown the door by Celtic management, that he will take his adoring, hard core fans here at BDC with him to his new venue.
Otherwise they will be whining forever every time he has a Rondoesque performance that the Cs should have kept him because of his unselfish all around play... even if he can't shoot
These are the same fans who believe that another can't shoot
type , Barney Fife, single-handedly kept Mayberry from falling into utter lawlessness.
Rondo is Barney Fife in sneakers.
