In Response to Re: Dear Rajon Rondo
[QUOTE]Rondo when played aggressively, best suited for this team more than any other PG. This guy has been lazy lately and is afraid of going to hoop. Last night it was same with everyone else too; no free throw attempt until the third quarter, thats just not acceptable! KG has become so soft that he is afraid to bang inside, taking jump shots. This guys gets paid more than $20m per year, just too old and has become too soft. Recently though I think its Doc's fault for Rondo's and therefore the whole team's downfall. Doc wants health more than the wins, so why would they even try to win games? I guess Doc wants the players to be healthy so they can spend early holidays with their family as we forced to watch lakers claim another ring, its disgusting to watch Kobe lifting another championship...I do not want to sound so negative but looking Rondo's face last nite, its pathetic!!!

There is absolutely no way to make the statement you make in your first sentence.
No other point guard in the league plays with as much talent and benefits from whom they play with than Rondo.
I can easily make the argument that with Devin Harris, a former all-star that has Denver 8 and 2 since the 'melo / Billups trade, runs the Cs just as well if not a lot better.
There is absolutely no basis other than your simple speculation and opinion that the Cs are better with Rondo than any other point guard.
The reality is that Harris plays with less talent than Rondo and the Nuggets have only 7 fewer wins.
Harris is just an example.
How long have you been watching the NBA? KG is a 2 guard in a 4s body, he has never ban ged inside, he is a jump shooter - why on earth would you expect KG to be taking foul shots if he is never within 18 feet of the rim?
Doc is willing to tank games but he has also charged his point guard with being more aggressive going to the rim and taking the wide open gifts. His point guard in turn cannot do these things and dropped his pacifier in a dog c rap on the sidewalk so he is crying and whining and has a p oo p oo in his diaper...." Doc wants me to be a complete player, I can't do that - wah wah wah".... Doc needs to take Rondo into his office and say ok Rondo just go back to the way you have always been 3 on 1 break with nobody in your way and give up wide open layups to make sure you don't have to take a jumper, layup, make free throws, and make sure you get an assist.... go back to causing 3 second violations, go back to causing shot clock violations by pounding the ball into the floor until you guarantee yourself an assist, pass the ball and then hide in the corner and call for the ball and try not to notice when your teammates are laughing their a sses off when you call for the ball when you and they know that there is absolutely no chance the ball is ever getting back to you because they know it is a rebound waiting to happen.....
