In response to aciemvp's comment:
Rondo the next TWO YEARS is set to be paid 25 million dollars. if not 26. i think it's 11.9 and 12.9. he doesn't play to that level of a paycheck every night.
remember back when everyone had morality and you could see a curtis rowe or sidney wicks check cashing slacker for what they were? rondo is worse than them because they were lazy bums and he's a lazy man with superior physical talents to 90% or more of the guards in the league.
he just refuses to be the best he can be for a team unless he is playing in the playoffs and then that short burst of "really trying" never holds together because everyone with a brain (that isn't accompanied by ego / head case problems) knows that you don't just "turn it on"- it's unethical to earn a contract and then play lazy 65 out of 82 games and then "really try" in the playoffs.
but this is the system of lies that danny built around rondo, he liked him so much. this isiah thomas guy, all 5 foot 9 of him, he really liked whipping on rondo tonight though. if rondo was a 4 or 5 in the league they would call him "dunk bait" because any given night, any opposing guard, no matter how marginal can go off for career highs against a rondo that is in a lazy mood.
Well, I'm not quite THAT mad, but you do make points I agree with. The LEAST the guy can do is play D. He takes too many chances, and that is why guys like Thomas can torch us.
I don't know if lazy is the right word, though. It's worse, acie. I think it's apathetic, but not up to the Wicks and Rowe level.
I think DA needs to kick the tires and see if we can get a big and decent backup PG for him
