[QUOTE]Not to put words in his mouth, but I believe Dudder is simply saying a PG posting a stat line of 22 pts, 14 asts, 5 rebs and 0 to's is a stat line that any number of PGs post on any given night. And I think he backed up his point by adding the names of a few PGs who have posted similar numbers very recently. Can't fault him for that! Nevertheless, I really don't feel that last night's stat line was "great". It was good. I'll take that stat line from Rondo on any given night too. However, game 4 against Cleveland in the playoffs last year was what I call "great". Not too many PGs can post THAT kind of stat line. I was most impressed with the 0 turnovers more than anything last night. I kinda felt disappointed for being "teased" because I know Rondo is capable of doing this on a nightly basis. Considering (or not considering) how he's played (and the Celtics) lately, I thought last night's performance was more in line with what is expected from him on a more consistent basis. I hope (not expect) he'll have a good night tonight too.

Not too many point guards could post that kind of stat line? Well unless of course if you look at what happens just about every night and you see that players have stat lines like that almost daily......
Capable of doing it on a nightly basis?.... lmao..... the only thing better than saying you "know" that Rondo can do it on a nightly basis would be one of my favorites where someone says "as a matter of fact - I know Rondo could do it on a nightly basis"... because somehow it is a FACT that someone KNOWS that Rondo COULD do it on a nightly basis - especially when he proves night after night that he can't.
Stockton had back to back seasons where he averaged 14 assists, over 17 points, shot more than 50% from the field, more than 80% from the line, and more than 40% from 3...... Rondo is nowhere near doing any of this.
Stockton averaged 14 assists while actually scoring, going to the basket and looking forward to getting to the line - as opposed to Rondo avoiding it, actually took 3s and made them at better than 40%, Rondo avoids shooting them altogether. this board is a bunch of enablers "he doesn't need to score, there is plenty of scoring, Rondo is perfect for this team" unless of course..... you want to score more than 85 points........ and so on....... to most here it is amazing that Rondo will average 11 assists and ignore the fact that he will actually score less per game than his assist average as if that is some sort of badge of courage or great accomplishment... what it means is he plays for a team that desparately needs his offense and he can not even lead the league in assists..... if he were averaging 25 assists per game I think averaging 10 ppg would be great but averaging 11 assists and not leading the league and averaging 10 ppg is what I would call an embarrassment....
We are somehow supposed to believe that Rondo is subjugating, deferring, giving up some portion of his game to make his 3 hall of fame teammates plenty of looks, etc. The reality is that he has none of the skills that would allow him to get anywhere near what Stockton accomplished in back to back seasons but many on BDC have him Springfield already.
Nothing could be funnier.
Go back and look at the stat line the last time Rose destroyed Rondo and held the Cs to 79 points.......
Rondo will not even lead the league in assists, barely lead the league in steals and those are his strong points..... Posters here would have you think that Rondo averages 25 assists and 14 steals and then there are a bunch of guys averaging around 10 assists and 2 steals and therefore because he is so far ahead in those two stats that his complete inability to do what most would consider routine point guard assignments more than make up for his futility.
He is near the top in a couple of categories and absolutely abysmal in some key areas but somehow he is the best in the league, perfect for this team, the Cs MVP, an MVP candidate, sending Rose a message, and some other such nonsense.
Just about every night Rondo is outplayed statistically by any number of other point guards across the league but somehow he is wearing green and therefore the best and nothing could be further from the truth. If he were wearing anything other than green, most on BDC would not know his name and would be laughing at his performance on a daily basis.
The other night in 29 minutes Lowry had 16 points on 50% shooting, he made 40% of his 3s, had 10 assists, 7 rebounds and a steal....... it took Rondo 41 min and 7 more shots to get 6 more points oh and last time Rondo faced off against Lowry, Lowry embarrassed him off the floor, Rondo dropped 4 points and 6 assists on Houston..............
But last night's game film should be sent to Springfield and of course marks the return to greatness for Rondo and actually represents a better picture of his actual overall game.......
Some people live in reality, the rest can't...... just look around the corner, you may find it.
