In Response to Re: I feel bad for Rondo
[QUOTE]Rondo is not an egomaniac, nor is he unable to evaluate himself. Once again, the haters turn to fake psychoanalysis to justify their ignortant criticisms. Rondo is hurt. KG has now verified what most of us suspected. Rondo has plantar fasciitis, which is extremely painful. That he is still playing NBA basketball is a testament to his heart. Sitting him down for a few days or a week or a month is very unlikely to cure the condition or lessen the pain. The usual treatment consists of wearing a special "boot" for up to six months, and avoiding putting any pressure on the inflamed tendon. The Celtics team doctor has no doubt told Doc that even a few weeks of rest is unlikely to overcome the condition. That's why Doc has continued to use Rondo, hoping that the inflamation wouldn't get worse.
Unfortunately, it has.

Come on, does your statement above really make sense?
Continuing to play Rondo in games causing high impact stress on his feet had Doc hoping the inflamation wouldnt get worse? lol
Thats the worse thing he could have done. If anything, sitting Rondo or playng limited minutes at best would have been the thing to do.
Nah, if Rondos PF was severe enough that he risked hurting it further or missing the playoffs... theres no excuse for playing him...
Ill take it one step further... the only reason Doc may have decided to play Rondo with the injury anyway is cause we needed to win games for HCA yet, Rondo wasnt helping us win at all...quite the contrary, hes been the weak link.
So the rationale just doesnt make sense... he shouldnt be playing if they didnt want to risk further and more severe injury or his value playing to the team as an injured player was extremely minor, more hurt than good..
So, if its PF thats his problem..theres no scenario that makes sense why he's been playing..
Also, KG said Rondo is playing hurt... However, DOc said hes not, thats hes just not playing well. We really dont know cause KG could be covering for him and vica versa.. All thats left is some logic and common sense
