[QUOTE]The game last night was a shocker. The posts and threads today are more disturbing than the play. Rondo became a morale problem last night. You are nuts if you think that. This team has great chemistry and while I am not sure about tomorrow's game people need to realize they were due for a stinker.

i agree that they were due for a clunker of a game. however, my comments on kg's nut shot and rondo waving himself done for the night have plenty of veracity. kg's moves was stupid and classless and i have never seen a star of any ilk wave himself out of a game just becuase it apparently didn't suit him.
and that includes jordan, bird, pierce, garnett, ray allen, parish, mchale, DJ, anyone i can think of. the only one i can remember seeing who did it, at least put up a weak front of an injury first in a close game and it was wilt, when he came up 2 tablespoons shy of guts in that famed playoff game, and then wilt wasn't let back in when his puddy stopped hurting.
my point is that the self dismissal is unprecedented to see in a 25 year old, most of all one whose game is all but perfect. it's not his job to over-ride larry frank just because larry frank is there- i've seen doc go painfully late in blowouts with the core players, way longer than just 6 mins to go.
and as it was, there was a rally, cut short by kg's hand in the nuts.
