btw 18 8 and 5, 10 6 and 5, and 14 10 and 8 the last 3 games of the series. i think thats FAR from TERRIBLE. fairly average? yes. is he not allowed to have those kind of games? you thinking those stats are terrible proves that even you know what rondo is capable of.

no, you don't see how it works. you're trying to gin up some fake argument / logic to make yourself feel more secure about rondo. i am happy when rondo does well. the bottom line is that given his talents- mentally and physically, he should be elite all the time.
instead you have a tenuous playoff existence that has UNDENIABLY DEPENDED ON HOW MUCH LATE SEASON MOMENTUM HE BUILDS WITH HIS SHOT when he "starts trying" with about 15 games to go.
go check the box scores the last two years. this is what rondo does instead of being fundamentally solid all the time.
therefore, what happens is that his elite skill level HAS NOT lasted the entirety of the playoffs in any year. he goes cold, it gets inside his head and the team suffers.
answer some easy questions for me- should a five year veteran starting PG be struggling @ 54% with his foul shot to begin with? none of this stuff is my fault and i have nothing personal against rondo.
but i do have a problem with someone who is not hustling, not trying to improve, visibly regressing before your very eyes and if he is hurt then why isn't he out resting his mind and body starting NOW?
i think i know the answer, i'm pretty sure i'm right and i'm pretty sure it is nothing new. and if i'm right then there is a circle of dysfunction that is in effect working against the selflessness that this team has hung its hat on for this run at greatness.
