It's been awhile but this post is back. These comments are from ESPN Boston.
54oatmealcookies- Good analysis out of ainge. Rondo is an all star and I like our chances better with rondo against Miami, but last night proved the Cs can make a deep playoff run with defense and all the different scoring options.
I agree with 54oatmealcookies. The Celtics could take Miami with Rondo, or at least have a better shot. Without Rondo the C's will need to be hot if they face Miami. The defense sets the Celtics apart, and it's the key for a long run.
iamnotwhouare- Rondo's absence will show come playoff time. Hopefully not until at least the ECF. That being said if they hypothetically moved Rondo for a skilled big they would be a better overall team than with the same roster and him healthy.
Moving Rondo is not an option, especially since most of the good big men who would be available won't replace what Rondo brings. In a point guard driven league Rondo is a need.
LosAngelesDoctorBleedGreen Doc is trying to avoid saying that they're better without rondo. He doesn't wanna $@%! off rondo. We all know they share the ball better without rondo
They share the ball better out of need. They don't have a guy like Rondo, or even a real point guard. So the ball is moving better because they have no other option.
