In response to kyceltic's comment:
AB is starting to become an offensive force on this team. I'm starting to believe that what we saw of him tonight is going to become the norm for him. His jumper looks great and he is taking it to the goal and finishing a lot better than last year. We need a good big a lot more than we need a shooting guard.
He reminds me of a young Joe Dumars if he keeps shooting the ball well.
What I like about AB is he has a good attitude, very mature for his age.
If the Celts are going to keep Avery Bradley and Jordan Crawford, I don't think the Celts can afford Rondo.
I strongly believe a PG who is not a 3-point shooter will not thrive in Stevens' system.
Sure we can keep all 3, but who plays in the last 5 minutes of the 4th qtr?
Rondo and AB?
Rondo and JC?
It's definitely not going to be JC and AB as that will not sit well with Rondo.
When we won a championship in 2008, it was either Eddie House or Sam Cassell playing in the last 5 minutes of the 4th qtr.
And that's Brad's dilemma in a nutshell.
Do you play to win or do you play to keep Rondo happy?
Its also the most compelling reason that Rondo must go.
