I think myself, and Paul spoke about Rondo yesterday, and frankly we've been on his side from day one.
ESPN put together a pannel of bloggers, and they all chose Rondo as the team MVP. What any of them failed to do? None of them spoke about Rondo being league MVP.
Jay King, Celtics Town (Rajon Rondo)
Eeny meeny miny moe, catch a Garnett by Ron-do? There are only two reasonable choices for Boston's team MVP (sorry, Mr. Pierce) and you can probably guess them from my lame attempt to turn a children's rhyme into a Celtics pun. Rajon Rondo continued to take steps toward taking over the Celtics last season. Kevin Garnett somehow spun around an approaching Father Time, told him to sprint in the opposite direction, and then put together a MVP-caliber postseason (non-LeBron and Durant division). The Celtics should hope Garnett is the team's MVP next season -- that would mean he's still an ageless beast destroying opponents on both ends. The smart money, though, is on Rondo. He has a habit of returning each season better than he was the last.
Jay picked Rondo, but his heart says KG. He wants KG, but he can't pick him. Because if he did, he would lose all creditability. KG can still play at a high level without being MVP of the Celtics. Rondo gets credit, but I feel like he's not taken serious as one of the best in the NBA. Not one mention of best point guard in the NBA either? Even he's not in some peoples eyes, but no mention. Give Rondo the credit folks.
