[QUOTE]True Rondo dribbles a lot. he is a pg, he is looking for an open player. Everyone that can shoot still needs to get the ball in their spot when they are open. Rondo is not good out hitting kick out jumpers. These things we know, but we still won with him despite those weaknesses. I never mentioned Steph Curry. Who is not been that impressive to me anyway, but the point is. people are saying we are better with Arroy and West! Please dont change the argument...There are not 12 other players available to play with us right now. We have Bradley, Arroyo, and Maybe a one leg, one wrist West....so THIS year, which is all I care about, (cuz i could be dead this time next year), we have those 3, and you can honestly say Rondo does not give us the best chance to win, and you believe he will play this poorly throughout the playoffs as well?

I know you didn't mention Steph Curry I did.
I know there are 3 guys there, so here we go. West and Arroyo have 18 games to get healthy and understand the system and they both provide offense that Rondo severely lacks. Their weaknesses are Rondo's strengths and vice versa.
Does Rondo give them the best chance to win of the 3 they have? Not if he is going to play the way he is now.
When the playoffs come, the game becomes halfcourt sets and let me know if you heard this anywhere? There are times when their offense really seems to struggle..... um they have been playing 3 against 5 during the BIG 3 era, with Shaq at least it is 4 against 5. In tight games I think we will see West running the team because at least it is then 5 against 5 on offense.
One thing that sticks in my mind from game 7 is that they scored 79 points.
People love to say "if Perk was there is game 7 they would have another title" but don't like to hear that if Bynum was playing then the way he is now there would have been no game 7.
I have heard for years Perk and Rondo don't need to score, there is plenty of scoring and as long as they do their jobs, everything will be fine..... 79 points.
Rondo can pout on the bench with a towel over his head while West is making jumpers, 3s, getting to the rim and getting to the line oh and making them (not at a record 26% like Rondo did last year).
Last time they played the Bulls - 79 points held below 90 by the Heat and Lakers and so on.
