Leader? Captain? "HE MAKES OTHERS AROUND HIM BETTER"? I know he missed 6 games since his return, BUT that doesn't mean that he shouldn't have some very positive emotional "Leadership" impact on the squad even from the bench being that he is the "CAPTAIN"?....except of course for the game he decided to INGORE out west. Here's the record this year:
Before Rondo's return: 14-26 = .350 winning percentage
Since Rondo's return: 8-18 = .300 winning percentage
Games Rondo has played in since his return: 5-15 = .250 winning percentage!!!
Games Rondo HAS NOT played in since his return: 3-3 = .500 winning percentage!!!
NUMBERS DON'T LIE!!! Go ahead........I KNOW, HE MAKES PLAYERS BETTER!!! LOL!!! Oh wait, I forgot......TANKING!!!! Yeah, ok! But he didn't play in 6-back to backs! YEAH, WE KNOW. THANKS WRONGDO!
