How do I slip through the defenses that surounds you? How can I get to know you if you never let me through? How do I get close to someone who is so intent on keeping me out? I ask these questions all day long and fear I will never figure them out ? Those are questions I believe are asked of Rondo.
Rondo is seen in a bright form, clear and concise. The end of a leader, the birth of a true player. A leader is needed to guide us in many ways. Not hasty or impetuous through trying days. A warm heart full of natural dreams. Rondo has become a relentless force that drives on and on.
I feel like Rondo is an inspiring and thoughtful person in many ways. He doesn't bend for the meida, and I love him for that actually. I see Rondo in myself. If I was an NBA player. I would be Rondo. It doesn't matter what Rondo tells us, or what he does for the media. The passion, and love of the game, and the want to win over power any issue. But it doesn't work that way. Rondo has become the kid in school that nobody sits by. Not really. Rondo is adored by his team. Rondo is just protective of his soul. His emotions, and his core being. Why blame him?
To ease our problems and to enlighten our days. Rondo won't become an extroverted leader who will lead the way for us, out of darkness , and into a brighter and promising day. In other words there is a genuine response from the perch above. Rondo will lead the Celtics as an introvert. Introverts don’t like to talk? This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite. I feel like Rondo doesn't owe us anything, and any player for that matter. Their privacy is what they have. I hate how their is take, and no give with the media. I feel like the media is a little jealous that Rondo's teammates see Rondo open up. Rondo has never been alone. I mean that because he's been with three hall of fame players for his entire career. He's measured by them, and I don't understand why? The media wants another Pierce. They can't grasp that, and they can't let go of the fact that Rondo isn't the life of the party.
Doc Rivers had told reporters that Rondo thanked his teammates for defeating the Hawks without him and evening the series at 1-1 on Tuesday. But the petulant point guard wasn’t carrying any contrition when he stepped onto the practice court and into the firing squad of pens and microphones and cameras yesterday.
“The end result is all that matters,” Rondo said. “If there had been a different result, it would have been very difficult. But since we won, it felt like we won the series already.”
Rondo has been showing us that winning is the only option, In his mind. Rondo is clever, and he doesn't want to cheapen his bond with his teammates, by telling the media everything. Rondo is as advertised. I think fans, and media want Rondo to be like Paul Pierce, or even Garnett. Rondo to me has a certain cool, and a way about him.
Life is an interesting thing. Containing moments of despair.and others that make you sing. The trick is making joy out of whatever you face. Looking at situations with intentional grace. Life is to be lived to the full extent. Rondo will not sing to the media.Why should he. Just to please us?
Maybe when these distraught feelings come over Rondo, and they seem to worsen. He's actually growing into a more stable person. It is said that character builds most in difficult situations.Stregthening you even more on your emotional foundation. If you question Rondo's maturity. I think some should look at themselves.
A line from a blogger
"It was classic Rondo, not necessarily being a dick just to be a dick, but, more likely, being a dick to hide his true emotions."
People hold Rondo to standards of maturity, but they can't do themselves?
In final, how come Rondo is treated like Kobe? Is Kobe a true leader? Was Jordan? These guys were hard on teammates, and they both have gotten into fist fights with teammates. The media is just to hard on Rondo.
