I never thought I'd say this, and it breaks my heart to say it, but I think the time has come. Rondo made me love NBA ball again. I think the change in him came with the controversey over The Streak. The way the media demonized him for what should have been seen as a great achievement was heinous. I notice he's started a new streak - six assists a game. I wouldn't put it past him to do it on purpose. But Danny was in the audience, and saw the pg he's staked his future on not compete against the pg he once wanted. Is Rondo already hearing trade rumors? Is that why he played so passively, even more than normal, and in a game where we had every reason to expect aggressive Rondo? If there werent' rumors before, there surely will be now. And this time, I can't blame Ainge.
