Best of Rondo: Guarding Lebron

Posted by shawn cassidy on May 12, 2013 at 5:45 AM

This is the Rondo that we want right? In this clip you'll see shades of KG. Rondo had accepted the challenge against James on that Sunday afternoon. Rondo has gotten the best of Lebron more than once. Rondo shattered the Cavs and Lebron's dreams in 2010's epic series, for Rondo at least. It was an exit for James, and Rondo's star was born. This rivalry hopefully continues for years to come.

I find watching that film irritating. I want Rondo to shut down opposing pgs like that. If he can't do that, I don't want to hear about Lebron.

it's really hard to shutdown a pg. Especially with the amount of pick and rolls used today and how teams spread the floor. It's almost impossible to stop rondo and he's not that good of a perimeter shooter so imagine the pg's that can shoot and drive.

Well, of course, I was exaggerating a little when I said "shut down", and I know Rondo's focus is on a team approach to it. But still, I want to see him do a lot better on opposing pgs before I want to see hiim guarding lebron

Him guarding James was an isolated thing, You won't see him doing that often. He needs the intensity from that clip.

I so agree, Greg. That intensity. We need more of that. Has he forgotten that he first established himself as an elite player on D?!

Was this the game where he looked Lebron dead in the eyes and told him 'lets go!' I would hope that he can bring even a fraction of playoff Rondo to the regular season. But the height and weight advantage Lebron has on him...watching him in pure unafraid "I'm a beast" Rondo mode was lovely.

Yeah, but I want to see that mode from Rondo when he is facing Chris Paul, Brandon Jennings and Jarrett Jack too...

I thought that was ECF game 7 last year in the final minutes when Celtics were down.

I think it was game 3 - definitely earlier in the series
