One of the early story lines in the 2012-13 season was Rondo's pursuit of Magics consecutive steak of 10 ore more assists in a game.With the ejection against the Nets, Rondo's 37-game streak of at least 10 assists was snapped, keeping him tied with John Stockton for the second-longest run in NBA history (and short of Magic Johnson's 46-game record).

Bob Ryan has made a living in recent years by starting the I hate Rondo club. In the video he goes off on why assists are a dumb stat,and he talks about the olden days again. Do you agree or disagree with Ryan on the assist in the NBA?

Bob Ryan is the very definition of the crusty old man at this point. Is there even any point in discussing what he says? The media and fan hating frenzy over Rondo's assists is actually fairly shocking. The Streak was an great achievement, an amazing achievement, and no, the team didn't become better when it ended. The team became worse. Meanwhile, the supposedly selfish Rondo sacrificed his streak, which yes, did appear to mean a lot to him, to teach his teammates a lesson about being tough, and idjits like Ryan jumped his case for that too, even though it's something Cowens and Bird would certainly have done. Now Rondo has won two straight assist average crowns and no one in the media, that I've seen, has even mentioned it, much less lauded this rather amazing accomplishment.

He's basically telling Rondo he's useless to the team. Look how important Rondo was when Bradley had problmes passing the ball in the Knicks series. Passing the ball is a gift,and Rondo has excelled at that gift.

He's basically saying to Rondo that he needs to be like Chris Paul,or Rose. The streak didn't hurt anybody. Rondo did somewhat of the right thing by sticking up for a teammate,even though KG is more then able to for himself. It was about the next step of leadership. No,we can't have him doing that anytime soon,but the message was sent to teammates that Rondo has your back.

The next step is to learn how to call his teammates out when they need it, constructively, how to be the disciplinarian.
