[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Danny needs to come out and say he's not trading Rondo for a 31 year old Gasol : You state an obvious truth and people here still won't accept an overwhelming fact about Rondo. Don't they understand what five on four does on the defensive end? The next fact in these truths is that Rondo not shooting from the perimeter is more noticable because the big three have fallen of the last two years. No longer do these players represent big mismatches and in Ray's case he no longer can play reliable defense. The next thing Rondo die hards will say is what do I think I am doing by saying the big three have fallen off. Which is why many great runs by team's like the Celtics have to crash and burn for everyone to get closure.
