In response to prakash's comment:
OK, that is a pretty silly claim. To say that teams are not backing off of Pressy is very silly. Have you checked his FG, 3-FG and FT %? How many drives have you seen him finish?
Yes, Pressey's FG% and 3pt% are down, but Pressey will fire away when left open.
Pressey averages 0.9 3-pointers per game in 12 minutes of game action.
That's 1 3-pointer every game.
In the summer league, Pressey was very good driving to the basket.
But right now the NBA players are just bigger and faster.
Back in 2010, Coach K picked Rose and Westbrook, instead of Rondo, for Team USA.
The reason was both Rose and Westbrook were better s-h-o-o-ters than Rondo.
Well it is pointless to debate in the face of such arguments. So lets just disagree.
I expect the team and Rondo to struggle for a while. There is no NBA player that you can point to that came back from ACL surgery and was 100% from day one. When Rondo gets to 30+ mins in time limit then we can look at how he is doing.
And if Danny makes another major roster shakeup move by the trade deadline, then the adjustment and struggles will continue much longer.
