Celtics Blog Post New Entry

I wish the C's backed Rondo, like Kobe does Pau

Maybe I missed it, but I don't recall any of the Celtics players calling out Danny Ainge. Maybe they did in private, I'll give them that, but to be vocal in public could be the ultimate stand for a temmate.

"Basketball is such an emotional game, you got to be able to have all of yourself in the game and invested in the game. We didn't have that," Bryant said after Gasol had 17 points and 12 rebounds against the Suns. "Pau, it's hard for Pau because of all this trade talk and all this other stuff, it's hard for him to kind of invest himself completely or immerse himself completely into games when he's hearing trade talk every other day. I wish management would come out and either trade him or not trade him."

Bryant made it clear that he prefers that the Lakers choose to not trade Gasol, the four-time All-Star who Bryant paired with to win consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010.

"I talked to (Gasol) a little bit about it," Bryant said. "It's just tough for a player to give his all when you don't know if you're going to be here tomorrow. I'd rather them not trade him at all. If they're going to do something, I wish they would just (expletive) do it. If they're not going to do it, come out and say you're not going to do it. This way he can be comfortable, he can go out, he can play and he can invest all of himself into the game."



So true right! As for Rondo, can't Danny just say no? He can't because he will if he feels like it. His hand is above the trade button, and it's an awful feeling if your Rondo.

I won't post the good,the bad,and the ulgy today. Because it was a whole lot of ugly.

Nobody seems to talk about Rondo, nobody is helping Rondo... not in the media, not in post-game media sessions, not during the game when Rondo hits the floor after being abused by the other team Bigs... not by Doc, teammates or Danny. Or fans. Strangely, fans hate him most.

Fact: he is alone in this Celtics organization.

Why? Because he is not the kid anymore, because he is not the role player anymore, because he developed personality, because he wants to play his game.
Because he started shooting.
Because he didn't score much. Because he scored to much. Because when he scores to much, Paul and Ray can't have their numbers done.
Because he runs so fast and this makes Paul looking ridiculous, at times.
Because he is way better than Paul Pierce, right now. Because he is so good that, by comparison, it hurts seeing Paul struggling.
Because he is the best Celtics right now.
Because he is the fastest PG in the league. Unique and smart.
Maybe, for his own good, for his career to follow its course, he should be traded.
Maybe this Celtics organization would be able to realize, after he's gone, the gold and treasure they use to have and gave away.

Wow. Well said, Kobe. Nobody on the Celtics has the honesty or sincerity to say this, though they all know Rondo is in the same situation, only worse.
