Rondo trying to build chemistry with teammates

Posted by shawn cassidy on December 23, 2013 at 6:00 AM

Rondo for the first time in his career will have a new coach, and a system that fits his style. Having a system is all good, but you need the chemistry to make it work. Rondo has some new teammates, and with the departure of Paul and Kevin. Rondo will need to build a chemistry with Sully and others.

Boston Globe

"A lot of these guys I haven’t played with, so they don’t know where I am going to throw the ball. They’ve been playing with Jordan [Crawford] and Phil [Pressey], so I don’t want to come back and turn the ball over at a high rate. So just the pickup game I played the other day was good for guys knowing that certain passes they might not think are coming are coming, so I want to continue to get guys rhythm. Guys like [Jared Sullinger], Gerald Wallace back-cutting, Avery [Bradley] back-cutting, I've just got find my personnel and know what we need to do going forward."

Rondo has been on the bench coaching this team along side Stevens and his coaching staff. Not only has he helped coach, but Rondo has been up front and center studying what his team can do. I do think it will take Rondo long to figure things out.

You could see at the practice that Rondo has a good synergy with Sully, but will take some time to connect with Olynyk.

Olynyk needs to connect with more then Rondo. Kelly's injury slowed his process a bit.

You could see in the scrimmage that Rondo and Olynyk can see each other on the floor. They just don't quite know how to connect yet. Rondo is going to have to adjust to Olynyk's lack of length. He's not Kevin Garnett, but he has a lot of KG's awareness.
