In response to prakash's comment:
I enjoy humor. This was not humor. No. It was Pud being himself.
Putting your money on Dahlmer in a free throw shooting contest is humor. Trading Rondo for a ham sandwich can be humor, although that was not coined by Pud. That was coined by somebody being sarcastic to Pud. Comparing Rondo to Dahlmer is not humor. That is just uncontrolled hate manifesting itself.
I was making the point that altering basic personality traits/characteristics in an adult is virtually impossible... and certainly defies your unbridled optimism about Rondo's ability/motivation to change this... change that... now that he finally has the opportunity/challenge to deal with adversity, become an unselfish teammate and leader.... blah... blah... blah.
I made the point that Jeffery Dahmer becoming a vegan and a model citizen even after his incarceration was about as likely as the changes you envision for Rondo.
Possible but not likely. Not after 7 to 8 years of age when personality makeup solidifies.
You have a sense of humor?
I would be very surprised indeed.
Pud, you need to read things more carefully. I do not express optimsm that Rondo will change his personality. I say that Rondo is an elite player irrespective of his personality and will continue to make improvements in his over all game.
And I don't express unbridled optimism. Yes, I am optimistic about Rondo but only a twisted mind will make your kind of connection between Rondo and Dahlmer. I think that both you and Dahmer are hopeless cases.
Dahlmer's case is well known. You will continue to hate Rondo, hate Danny, hate Fierce and generally just hate. I have no optimism there unlke your claim that I am optimistic about everything..
