In response to sinus007's comment:
+1 to what DrBoogiebone said.
Also, the author missed on a few very important factors.
First and foremost, DA has to determine if RR is capable and willing to be "Da Man"
In order to trade RR DA has to showcase him first.
Well, it's the "deadest" time of the basketball season, so articles like that are nickel a dozen.
Having watched R9R play for the better part of 7 seasons, DA knows good and well if Rondo is capable of and willing to be "Da Man." He's known for some time.
We all know too.
The notion that Rondo STILL needs to be "showcased" at this point in his career in order to be traded speaks volumes about the weakness in the market for Rondo's all too unique talents.
Other GM's know Rondo very well too. Considering his 7 year track record in the league, he's a know quantity.... good, bad and ugly.
Only an "extreme makeover", not "showcasing" has the possibilities, however unlikely, of moving the needle a bit and increasing R9R's value as trade bait.
Like Dahmer in the slammer, Rondo bees Rondo.... and that ain't changing a hair.
