Have had this thought more than a few times myself, hence this discussion.
Most of the arguments concerning Rondo revolve around whether to trade him or keep him.
Constructing trades involving him are relatively easy and straignt forward. They address getting our long sought after bigman and some sort of PG to compensate for Rondo's absence.
The alternative is not so easy, but for some of us, more interesting.
If DA gambles on Rondo's potential and decides to rebuild the team around Rondo's game, what would he try and do and who would he go after?
Ideally, we would have a very very fast team. Athletic wing men who could run and grab boards. Passing that could rival anything the 80's had to often Showtime, but this time in Boston?
Maybe, just maybe, this is what Rondo needs. The type of team that best exploits his talents. I can remember thinking PP was a bit of a headcase for a number of years, but that urge to act out got sublimated once he was surrounded by the right sort of talent that pushed his desire to win to the front.
Anyway, Jeff said it much better than I have. Click on the link, read the article, and pro or con, post your opinion.
