In response to jdm894g's comment:
What I don't get from some of the posters here is they claim Rondo didn't have horses to run with and now he is stiffling the offense by holding it to long? Really? How much running is in the half court? I have seen on numerous occassions Rondo was ahead on the break and the rest of the team was behind him.
The offense we run is suited for the players we have. Hold wait for option one(PP) to get open or option two(KG) and then its try again option three(RR, BB or AB).
I honestly think the ball sticking is waaaaay overblown. Is it Doc's play calling or RR doing it on purpose? This has been the offense for years and it has produced a banner and long play off runs. Now that the aging stars are on their down side folks are up in arms complaining.
When Rondo goes for 40+ folks cheer, but are upset when its just a triple double and we loose or squeek out a win. Rondo rebounds better than any player on the team. He has gotten the ball to his teammates in their sweet spot.
Rondo is not CP3, Westbrook, Rose, or any of those combo guards masquarading as point gaurds.
Good points all, but I think the horses are tere now to run with Rondo so we will see.
Yes, and let's not forget that Doc even admitted to having to adjust to this new style of play so maybe Doc's the one responsible for Rondo's "wait for the HOFer/dribble-dribble offense."
Rondo is in the same position as A. Walker years ago ... doing what the coaching staff wants from him and being criticized by the fandom for being the decision maker and responsible party for the type of play being executed on the floor.
Time to wake up people and place blame where it belongs ... I'm sure Rondo will embrace this new play next year cause it's what he's made for and wanted to do for a long time but never had the Mustangs, but Clydesdales to work with.
