The origin of this regular column was inspired by Yahoo's Wojoo, and his column about Rondo being the one player who could take down the evil Heat. With both the Celtics,and Heat tied 2-2 in their respected series. The eyes have started to wander. Both teams in a dog fight right now to edge their way closer to their date in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Rondo has a sidekick in this quest, and KG has been the offensive force in the two wins in this series over the 76ers. Rondo's job will be clear. Get Kevin the ball, but how? Of course by being Rondo. Attacking, and letting everything go. The feeling of triple-double is in the air. The Celtics are playing in Boston, and it's a big game. The biggest game of the season so far.
Rondo has been challenged by speed so far in this series, and Rondo has found ways to score, and to pass the ball. Rondo had 17 assists, 13 points and 12 rebounds for his eighth career playoff triple-double to start this series. I think Rondo is ready to play off of that performance. With an eye always lifted toward the Heat. The Celtics need to control their desire to look ahead. Take care of the team in front of you.
If you judge him do not judge him harshly, or why even judge him at all? Since the darkest of memories are his to recall, and his to make up for. Rondo seems to come up big when he's asked to save the day, he does it for himself, and because he loves to win. His art always comes at a cost.
