Question of the day: Will Rondo pass Pierce as the better Celtic?

Posted by shawn cassidy on August 25, 2012 at 8:00 AM

With Rondo's(tied for 4th) MVP forecast prediction by ESPN. I thought about Pierce's time in Boston. When was Paul every considered as an MVP candidate? I need help from you guys if you know this answer. Was Pierce ever considered as an actual MVP candidate? I'd say no Paul has never been up for MVP. Of course Pierce never had a team like this in his prime, but even so, would Pierce win MVP if he had a team like this in his prime?

I'd say no still. Pierce has tenure over Rondo, and history over Rondo. But in time, could Rondo become a better Celtic? Could Rondo put together a better legacy? Pierce is Mr. Celtic right now, but if Rondo remains a Celtic. Rondo has a great chance to become the best Celtic since Bird. Especially if Rondo pulls off winning the MVP this season. Another title, and a good ranking as MVP this season will only help Rondo's chances at becoming the best in a Celtics uniform. I think both players have already set standards on what it means to be a Celtic. So will Rondo pass Pierce as a better Celtic?

Paul Pierce is one of the great Celtics of all time. But I think Rondo is by far the better player now. It's no put down of Pierce. Pierce reminds me so much of Havlicek and Bird. Sometimes I swear it's like the same incredible basketball spirit in different bodies. But Pierce MUST accept the supporting role now. It's time, Paul. You could have one of the best years of your career that way. Was Scotty Pippin not a great player because he played a support role to Michael Jordan?

Rondo will surpass Pierce I believe. But Rondo needs to put in the wrok.

I worry about all the time he spends as a Red Bull rep.
