Sometimes it's just easy to give up, when you’ve been given up on. It's even easier to step into the shade, to avoid that harsh light that points up at you.Rondo isn't that type of person,so don't expect him to take the trade talk from others hard. Proclaimed homer of Boston sports, has been nothing but an odd ball when it comes to anything Celtics. I gladly admit that I don't like the guy. Before he was even on ABC/ESPN commenting about the NBA, I still muted Michael Wilbon, and whoever shared the stage with him. It does make it easier to mute the broadcast with Simmons opening his mouth.
I know Simmons is not your prototypical sports guy, he's supposed to be like you and me, a fan in the inside covering the sports we love, but I find his persona annoying, and unrealistic. I'm sure if he ever found this blog, he would have some harsh words,and I would be fine with that, but this is my stage to say what I want.
Simmons was visibly upset during draft night when the Celtics traded Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, and I thought for a second that maybe I was giving Simmons a hard time for nothing. Once the dust settled, and once Simmons could analyze Celtics, he then began to speak. He's pro tanking, and pro trading Rondo. I get it, and it's my opinion that he's wrong on both fronts.
Simmons has been saying that he believes the Celtics will trade Rondo, and I think it's more of wanting it, then actually believing that it will happen. For those who like Simmons, that's great. I get why, and maybe I just don't get him. I did think some of his Doc tactics were decent, but I also thought the two going back and forth was a bit childish.
