What are Celtic fans thinking:

thedrwolff Rondo's season scoring efficiency or points per shot attempt is 1.14.... so if rondo shoots 100 times he scores 114 points. Ray allen at 50% from three land is 150 points per 100 shots and immediate death. Pierce drawing fouls and canning and 1s is death by bonus. Rondo's only asset is his ability to get the ball to people before they dribble off their foot thats it. When rondo scores a lot the celtics never win big because he's shotting 50% from 2 land with minimal fouls drawn. When he does draw a foul its 58% from the line. What ignorant idiot keeps banging the Rondo drum your are joking or trying to get some idiot GM to take him off your hands


Another stat junkie shooting up stats in his ass. Watch the game please, and even if you didn't watch the game. Listen, and figure out that Rondo is the guy. Why has Rondo had such and odd, but great season at the same time? Some games the Celtics understand that using Rondo as the focal point is the best option. But they have a relapse, and they take some 2008 pills that don't work.




vman606 there is no shame in starting over. BOS knew that when the big three came together that it wouldn't be for a long run. they got one title out of it and that means it was a success. blow the thing up now (i.e. trade rondo after the season) and if you draft right you can compete in 2-3 years when MIA is on the decline.


Oh boy, here we go again. Blow it up now? Did you notice the trade deadline has come, and gone? Their all in for the rest of the season, and will see what happens. But why do you say trade next season? The building process will start this summer around Rondo.



vman606 it's becoming increasingly clear that boston needs to do what portland is doing -- wire up the dynamite and blow this thing up.


Do fans not pay attention? The deadline is over, and this is the team we have. The C's will have cap space this summer. They will have Ray, KG,JO, and others off the books. Pay attention guys, or you lose all cred on any matter.

Sheesh, good call on the stats junkie. It's true that the pass will always be Rondo's main weapon, but he is the only Celtics scorer that can break down the defense, and that's the key. Also, people forget about him that he is a latecomer to the game. Imagine Dennis Rodman, if Rodman had actually developed an offensive game. That's a bit what we are seeing in Rodman. The thing about getting fouls is a low blow. Yes, Rondo is not as adept as Pierce at drawing fouls, but he is has been getting a lot better. Unfortunately, he's run into a lot of resistance from the refs. They have blatantly swallowed their whistles as far as he is concerned. HE HAS TO PLAY THROUGH THAT.

Most fans don't think, because most people don't think. The incredible thing is that this is true. MOST PEOPLE DO NOT THINK. They have things that happen in their minds that are like fake thoughts, derived from what they hear everyone else saying.

Watching some of the highlights from last night, the high level that Rondo is playing at is amazing in some ways. One play was his patented one on four break - who else does that?!! In another he skied for a rebound and tipped it to Garnett who laid it in - those two guys really get in sync with each other sometimes.

That was a big play during the comeback. I feel bad fro Rajon, because he works so hard, but his team let's him down. KG on the other hand doesn't play that brand of basketball.

I will be posting the playbook column again. I will have it up by tomorrow morning. You will get a closer look at Rondo's performance against the Nuggets.

Hes the easy scapegoat of the fanbase because he he isn't the greatest shooter and everyone thinks when we lose its not because of anyone else but him and when we win people think we win inspite of him, last night yet again showed me hell probably be better without kg ray and pierce, they had a lineup where none were in and rondo ran off 8 straight points because he had to be the guy and hit 2 layups and 2 jumpshots then when they come back his role was to find them which he is great at but they dont see that he can score when hes needed to score. Thats why i like bradley and rondo together also forces us to drive more and makes rondo think score more instead of his designed role.

The situation kills me. When I look at Rondo, I don't just see a scorer. I see the team's best scorer. Scoring isn't just about shooting Js. It isn't even just about finishing around the basket, or drawing fouls. We all know that there's a lot of room for Rondo to improve in all three areas. He is a work in progress. But what he can do is attack the defense better than anyone else on the team, almost better than anyone else in the game. But people see him touch-tip the rebound to Garnett, or throw that whirling around-the-back pass the other night, and they say it's just "flash". That amazes me. That whirlaround play was as efficient a play as you'll ever see. It was the perfect way, in that situation, to draw the defense and mystify them, while hitting Ray right on the numbers with a perfect pass whistling past his defender's ear. "but those are passes, and he's a passer" some will say. Criminy! Those kind of pass plays don't work unless the passer can draw the defense, and Rondo DOES draw the defense because he is a killer in the paint and they know it. It all works together.

And has no one even noticed the broad range of moves that Rondo is developing? He has scoops, hooks and floaters when attacking the basket on the run. He has all the same moves on the block. He has a baseline J and an elbow J and a bailout 3. How many moves does Pierce have? He has the jab-step fallaway elbow J. He has the three from anywhere on the arc. He has a fallaway J in the paint. That's all he has. Granted, that's a lot, but Rondo actually already has more moves.

It's no put down to Pierce to say that Rondo is a scorer, and we need him scoring.

I agree but i dont think it will be that way until they all leave, he tends to show flashes of how dominat of a scorer he can be, pierce out first 2 games he dropped 31 and then 22 also with 13 assists and 12 assists, kg out he drops 35 you almost want all of them out the same game and see what rondo can do, especially in the 4th quarter when hes given the ball for more then to just set people up and take the desperation shot.

I hate that argument we see all the time that the Cs usually lose when Rondo scores a lot of points. Right. That's blatantly because he doesn't usually look to score unless the team is REALLY struggling, and additionally because the team is not prepared to deal with Rondo scoring well. Oftentimes when Rondo attacks the basket, no one seems to spot up properly, or cut. But it just seem like he's mostly kept on a leash, until we are in a heap of trouble, at which point he is expected to 'take over', to
'Rondo' the opposition. How unfair to Rondo is that?!!
