Never in a million years would the Celtics get real value for Rondo. Big question is, when does he get back in uniform? I can see a brand new team! I think a lot of people have forgotten how good Rondo was before going down.
the problem is that you assume that rondo has no real known value. he is booked 25 (TWENTY FIVE) million over the next two years!!! he's not worth that on his best day!
he's never played out from under the shielding (shielding his STINK of not being able to shoot easy open shots or free throws) wing of pierce, garnett, allen. when he gets back you will see that minus the offensive weapons known as garnett, pierce, rondo will HAVE to play more of a role in the offense- a responsibility that he has shirked his whole career.
MANY on this board claimed "we don't need rondo to score 18 a night". well, yes we did. our core guys got old and rondo got no better at scoring and actually spiked the team's tempo right into the ground to suit his statistical window-dressing act that became as ludicrous as ricky davis shooting at his own basket to get a triple double 10th rebound. only rondo was padding up the box score every night to hide his stench.
NOW with no KG and Pierce to assure the conversion of 10 assists a night, rondo's assist numbers will be down and we are just rolling the dice that he has had some renaissance or sudden interest developed regarding shooting the ball and being a complete player.
we need to get rid of rondo so the team can move in a real direction for renewal. it's very possible that IF we can get rondo back and dress him up for some showcasing that some idiot team who thinks they are on the brink and believes that this sulking brooding bastion of selfishness can help them, they might pull the trigger on a trade. take what you can because 25 million over the next two years is twice what rondo is worth plus a few dollars.
"Sulking, brooding bastion of selfishness....."
No need to pull your punches, acie.
Tell us what you really think about our superstar ASPG.
