Disasters can happen so sudden, natural or man-made, shaking the entire world at times. Disasters are devastating to cultures, and if the Celtics trade Rondo. That would be a man-made disaster for the proud franchise, and it would rock the culture of the Celtics. I get the trades of KG and Pierce. Those deals were good for the team, but they hurt when it came to Danny showing loyalty, but in a way he showed loyalty to Rondo, and to the fans of Boston. He wants a winner, and he did all he could with those two guys, and you can include Doc into that as well. Those deals hurt us because we love those guys, and it was hard to see them ago, but it was good for the franchise overall.
So why shouldn't Danny trade Rondo? In Rondo's short career he's already become Mr.Playoffs. He's a big time player, and one of the best players in the playoffs in recent memory. He can out play the best of the best in the playoffs, and that's hard to find in any sport. Another reason you don't trade Rondo is that he wants to win championships. It's not something he just says, he wants it, and it's pure truth when he speaks about winning a banner. Sometimes when I hear other players like a Dwight Howard talking about championships. I feel like it's just a trick to sale clothing. He cares, but it's not the end of the world if he doesn't win. For Rondo you get the sense that losing kills him inside.
I think I've talked about this topic since I started this blog, but I'm passionate about Rondo and the Celtics. I see him as the future, and I feel like he's been forgotten since he hasn't played since last January. Some other point guards have risen, and have the league up at attention. Someone like Lillard for example. The Blazers are crazy good this year, and he had another game winner of the Cavs Tuesday night. Rondo has a lot to prove and he will. It's apart of his work ethic and his desire to be the best.
The house is solid, so far surviving a fire, flood, earthquake and a major storm. The half beam is still in place, and no stress cracks to be found. I watch the rain dripping down the window ensuring the strength of this house. The Celtics house is being rebuilt, but the Celtics still have some adding on to do with their house. Rondo is the new culture. The coach has built a system behind him, and the players are sold that Rondo is the guy. They trust him and respect him. He's the new Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett to these guys.
I don't have a magic 8-Ball, and I can't see into the future. But one thing reamains in my mind, you won't find a player like Rondo in any trade. If we can learn anything from examples in the past. It must be from mistakes, and from past success. Sometimes errors in actions, cause for poor decisions by the ones in charge.Perhaps I'm wrong about all of this, maybe Rondo isn't the player that I believe he is.Maybe Bob Ryan is right. Oh, please... Checkout his latest digs at Rondo.
Look around you. These guys out there talk crap about everyone. They even question the greats, and it gets them air time, along with a fat stash of cash. Rondo has a lot to prove, and I think he already has, but until Bob Ryan rides off in the sunset, like he said he was. Rondo will have his number one hater on the air.
