[QUOTE]In Response to Re: KG to Retire? : Dudder, neither you nor I nor anyone else will ever know whether Rondo's being healthy would have kept us from turnovers and helped us run plays more efficiently in Game 4 and 5. In the end, we lost and there's no sense in debating what WOULD have happened. I have the opposite opinion from you, but clearly, its just my opinion. Let's (neither you nor I) pretend we would know what would have happened. Also, maybe you're right. Maybe the Big 3 would admit in a quiet moment that they'd rather have Chris Paul or Deron Williams. but, I think that list would be very short. They love what Rondo gives them and folks like Westbrook and Rose would be too selfish while folks like Nash and Billups would be too old. Without knowing what in their minds, I can only go by their word that they are all VERY close so it would take a tremendously talented individual to make them say they'd rather someone other than Rondo. Unlike you, they could genuinely like Rondo.

Yes it seems very likely that the team that won 4 of the last 5 meetings would have lost the next 4 of 5 meetings had Rondo not been injured......
Westbrook / Rose too selfish or much, much, much, much, much better for the team by taking the pressure off the offense.
People like you are completely blinded by the Cs having one of the worst offenses in the league and think that it is ok. While having one of the premier players in the league that could lead a team when someone else is having an off night is really, really, really bad thing..... lmao roftl.....
Hey KG - Bosh who is supposed to be one of the softest guys in the league do you think I should take over? Yes Derick, Russell, Deron, etc. go ahead.
Hey Paul - sick of being double teamed, do you think I should get to the line rim and shoot 15 free throws and make 90% of them? Yes Russell, Chris, Derick go ahead.
Hey Ray - I know that I am waiting and waiting and waiting for you to get open and I know it takes 3 or 4 screens because nobody will guard me, should I make these wide open uncontested jumpers including some dagger 3s? Yes Deron go ahead.....
Please... that is just the short list using just a few of the guys that you mention.
Somehow it is a bad thing that Kidd or Nash are old and that somehow would have cost them #18 - Rondo cost them #18 last year.
Those are just a few basic examples of players that would have put them over the top, the longer list inclues many other point guards that would have made them at least as good if not better.
The degree to which Rondo can be overrated cannot be overstated.
