    You Rondo bashers may see how bad the Celtics are without a healthy Rondo

    It really blows thinking of watching this team with a hurt Rondo or no Rondo.
     Its boring ,when hes on the bench.

    We've been watching this team play in the 4th quarter and at crunch time with an "AWOL" Rondo for years.

    How is that any different than a "no Rondo"?

    Getting rid of Rondo is like watching Pats with no Brady.
    You can get rid of Randy moss but not Brady.

    Kirk, 

    I truly believe letting Rondo be in charge in those last six minutes would have led to a title as well.  The lakers were exhausted he would have shredded them for lay ups and free throws.  Just making fifty per cent of those free throws would have been enough to maintain a lead and win.  Glad you mentioned it.

    For those who don't believe Rondo would have led the team to victory.  There were two other games in the finals where he dominated in the closing minutes and led them to a win.

    Either Doc is a complete idiot for not honoring Rondo's leadership skills at crunch time... or... Rondo lacks the proper mentality and skills (i.e., he goes AWOL)  to reliably take over a game at crunch time.

    So (a) do you blame doc or (b) do you blame an AWOL Rondo?

    If you blame doc, you've also got to blame Coach K and Team USA too who seemed to do okay dissing Rondo's leadership and skill set, in effect, playing and winning  it all with a  "no Rondo."

    Rondo the closer? I was surprised to see Rondo took the winning shot in regulation against the Bulls. Of course he missed and choked. Where was Paul Pierce?

    Funny as I remember the series there were moments when I thought the Lakers were going to do a "hack a rondo" strategy and just send him to the line every time he had the ball.  It would have also served to get into his head big time and I am surprised a team hasn't tried it yet.

    Not a good idea to have the ball in your worst FT shooters hand in a close game if you plan on winning.

    Rondo walks the offense at crunch time. That's nuts.

    Nowadays, its CPP more than likely/predictably runs the offense.

    How about Delonte? That's why we picked him up.

    If Rondo can get us a lead in the open court game, others can more likely bring us home.

    it  is frustrating

    but this is a heart attack type team

    tonite is a big trap game and Durant is HUGE

    dont look for too many calls for the Celts 

    GBBD best be careful with his charge taking defense  wont work in OKie 

    Durant to the free throw line  is tonites montra


    C's need to bash them in the first half then fasten seat belts

    Great post!and
     As long as we are off subject... in case your your plan to bash them in the 1st. half fails, I think we should go one on one against Durant tonight and make him play major defense. After he wears out (and hopefullyhe does),things will go well with the c's... JMO

    well, either rondo starts leading in the fourth quarter or he's no good to the team.  it's about time.  has to be one or the other.  3/4 functionality is worth zilch.  until rondo becomes a 48 minute function guy then a player like westbrook is infinitely better.  and... rondo can't become anything but a poison to the team in the fourth quarter if he can't peg a jumper and a free throw reliably enough.

    Why does he need to hit a jumper when he can pass to Pierce, Ray, KG, Baby... Westbrook is better than Rondo is a ridiculous statement

    Westbrook is "infintely better" than Rondo.  Now, THAT is ridiculous.

    And even if he were, what's Boston going to do?  Trade Rondo for Westbrook?
     That's in the realm of fantasy.  Rondo's the C's PG.

    And that's just fine with me.

    Westbrook takes ill-advised shots all the time. He doesn't know how to get others involved yet. He may become as good as Rondo but if they switched teams I don't think the C's are as good.

    Because Coach K and Team USA played and won without Rondo = /> Rondo clearly lacks leadership and skillset.


    hahahahahaha..... what a stupid and flawed argument.

    It must drive you nuts that Doc and the Celtics organization have committed to having Rondo be the PG of this team for years to come.  You deserve it man!

    how do you feel about Rondo matching the assist records of some of the best PGs the game has ever seen?  it must frustrate you.  the little mental model of basketball in your head must crash everytime you think about it.  deal with it!
