Celtics Morning Joe: Rondo finished 10th last year in MVP voting

Posted by shawn cassidy on April 17, 2012 at 4:30 AM


Last season, Rondo finished tenth in MVP voting. He finished in front of Chris Paul, and Tony Paker in last years voting. Of course Rose won the  MVP award. Howard finished second, and James finished 3rd, and than Kobe finished 4th, and Durant 5th. People seem to have  different views on MVP. Some believe it's the best player in the league, and they should get the award every season. That has happened from time to time. Jordan was a prime example of that in the 90's,


Some think it goes by regular season record.  An example would be last season. Rose, and the Bulls have the best record, and he wins MVP. The same goes for the past two Lebron MVP's in 2009, and 2010. Some others believe that an MVP should be the most valueable player  to his team, and you need to factor in record,and stats. Sometimes an MVP race can change in the middle of the season. Last season it seemed like Rondo was the top MVP choice for a good cuink of the season. But injuries Rondo suffered,and injuries that put Rondo's mates on the shelf, derailed his breakout season. This season seems way more of a breakout. Rondo has put his hat into the race, but the lack of early season success may have put Rondo out of the runnuing.


So whatever formula you think is right for MVP. You must see that Rondo is a prime choice. To see Rondo place in the top five after the rocky start, will be  big for the Celtics..

It's sort of ironic that Rondo is in some ways having a bigger year this year than he had last year, but seems well out of consideration for MVP. Then again, he's edging back into it now. If he keeps playing the way he's been playing, or better, since he's actually been continuing to trend upwards, I would say, I don't know how they can keep him out of the top five.

Interestingly, though, the assists race seems to have finally gotten Steve Nash's attention. He went off for ten assists in the first half last night! But then he only played in the third quarter and so ended up with 13. Still, I say, take note, Rondo! You haven't quite locked it down yet!

Tonight feels like it will be a good game. I think the Charlotte game solidified a lot of things. The starters must feel like they can really rely on the bench guys. The bench guys must feel a lot more confident. And Rondo must feel that he has a full range of options going, and more confidence to control the game.

On Csnne, the immortal Bog Ryan basically declared the Charlotte win to be meaningless. He said that Charlotte is so bad it would have been terrible if any configuration of the Celtics didn't beat them. Wow. Well, Charlotte is an NBA team, even if it's a bad one. Rondo went at them last night with four guys who were not starting when this season started. Bass was a journeyman. Pietrus looked like he was sliding out of the league. Stiemsma and Avery looked like career D-leaguers. I think it was one hell of an accomplishment for Rondo and for them that they went out and spanked Charlotte.

Now let's see how the team asserts itself against NYC. The Knicks will be tough. What kind of game will we bring? What kind of game will Rondo bring?

He killed the Knicks last year in the playoffs,and this season so far. Expecting him to feed off of last game, and the last 22 actually. Bob Ryan needs to retire. He's Ainge's friend.
