[QUOTE]Rondo would make any of his teammates better, that's what a pass first PG does I agree. After all, the game of basketball is a team concept. but keep me wondering if we stayed with: Jefferson - Ricky Davis -Ryan Gomes -Gerald Green -Wally Szczerbiak - Olowokandi -La Frentz - Orien Green- Perkins & Pierce. Is it safe to say, Rondo will deliver? I doubt it will work.

I mean just astounding negative clueless revisionist drivel
If we went with youth we'd have traded Pierce... he knew this. He asked for one if we went that direction, Ainge and him had many talks. So if we didn't have Allen and KG walking through the door we'd have sent Pierce to Chicago for Luol Deng and Ben Gordon... the offer chicago gave us during the regular season. Maybe we sent Chicago native Tony allen and Leon Powe there as well.
With DWest still here, and perfect as the PG who can D-up SG's as Gordon played the two, we'd have drafted Baby over Pruitt.
Big Al was a 17-11 when Rondo was a 20 year old rookie backup PG. Then he became a 22-11.5 in Minnesoat w/ garbage PG's before a knee injury slowed him.
THIS is the 2007-08 Celtics if we decided to rebuild CHE:
C - Perk, Noah
PF - Al, Baby
SF - Deng, Gomes (Gomes can play some 4)
SG - Gordon, Wally
PG - DWest, Rondo
deep bench - Scal
THAT is a young team that scares the heck out of people, wins 25-30 games and has a lotto pick in the 9-14 range.
Maybe they try to trade up for Mayo or Westbrook, perfect tall guards to play alongside Gordon and Delonte. Or maybe they trade down and take a perfect fit SG to play beside Rondo like Courtney Lee or George Hill.
Maybe they get a long leaper to pair with Deng like Anthony Randolph or Jason Thompson who will just run people to death and catch oops from Rondo as Gordon waits in the corner and Noah runs the floor with them.
Maybe they get another banger like Ibaka or Hickson and trade Baby, or even Perk, playing Big Al @ C more?
Hey they'd have also had Theo's exp contract in '08... we know they'd have had been able to make a better offer for Gasol than LA did
Then Wally's exp deal in '09... we'd of course make the playoffs in '09, but instead of no pick
we have one in the low 20's.
Get a clue when you post the above GARBAGE Che, rebuiling means Rondo plays behind DWest in '08 and then explodes in '09/'10 as a guy with so much young talent to pass to all around him it would be silly.
