In response to RallyC's comment:
The longer DA waits, the more Rongdo sabotages his own value. Without 2-3 HOFers on his team, he is forced to be someone he isnt capable of being, THE MAN. yeah he has a good handle and vision, BUT only aa foos as the guys he's passing to. We all saw and want to believe the illusion that his time with 3 of the best who ever played made him appear to be. He may be the most oner rated player to wear the C's uniform. Simply a beneficiary of the perfect situation for his skill set, a dribble passer, with no real consisrant shooting ability from the stripe or the floor. Face it, we are seeing an acerage player who has flashes of acrobatic, intoxicating plays. He's NEVER been a great player, just a great ROLE PLAYER.
Funny how the media keeps on suggesting that, Rondo's rusty, and given more minutes his game will slowly morph back into it's pre-injury form. Rondo just needs more playing time, they say. It takes time to recover from these kinds of injuries- say them.
I say don't hold your breath.
Rondo's never been able to shoote. He's a hard-nosed hustle player. He's one of those guys that plays with a certain reckless abandon, that good things happen when he's on the floor. But he's not Derrick Rose. He's not going to suddenly regain a form that he never had in the first place.
Put onto a rebuilding team, he's got zero value. Nobody's killing themselves over loose balls right now. No one's worried about not making the playoffs, or homecourt advantage. No one's going to take a charge from Lebron.
I think naming him Captain and putting him on the first train out of North Station would be the nicest thing you could do for him. Letting him linger on here, while waiting for something to happen that's never gonna happen? The situation here went from ideal to worst-case-scenario.
So if someone sends us a low-ball offer for him, I wouldn't expect him to take exception. Send him somewhere that already has a leader. Send him somewhere we he can make his around the back dribble look fancy again. A new home that could use an unselfish PG with a flare for making big hustle plays.
For his sake the sooner the better.
