In response to Petey62's comment:
Pud, you are so right about the notion of Bass being our go-to-guy. That's scary. That's very scary.
But I think Rondo is going to make us so much better. I really do. No guard right now commands respect off the dribble. No guard right now is capable of making simple passes. No guard right now is capable of going for a triple double. No guard right now opens the entire floor for everyone like Rondo does.
Rondo will make a difference. He'll take (and probably miss) more shots in the 4th quarter. Then again, he might make more than we're accustomed to seeing him make.
It's going to be better than what we're seeing now.
Considering that Rondo's MO has been to flip the ball to CPP and disappear at crunch time.... things are going to be quite different if/when Rondo returns.
That's worth the price of DIRECTV NBA League Pass all by itself.
Rondo disappeared because he was afraid the opposing team would foul him and he would have shoot free throws.
But with time running out at the end of the first three quarters, you could count on Rondo dribbling the ball and holding it out front for the last 20 sconds for that predictable and desparate 3 point heave, which never went in.
Rondo is the anti-go-to-player until he improves his free throw perentage above the average Jr High School level.
