[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rajon Rondo and the Shots Not Taken : What is your point? Do you want to trade Rondo for Kidd? If its just a matter of bashing Rondo, when is enough going to be enough for you ? Even the old tart in the limerick eventually became satiated. Enough she cried, I`m satisfied!

Let's see - nobody guards him and his percentage has improved after 5 years in the league.... wow...... now let's see if he continues to pass up routine layups and kicks the ball out to players that are 20 feet farther away and hopes 2 things - (1) the guy that is 20 feet away makes a jumper (and oh by the way he has 3 of the greatest jump shooters of his generation) and (2) he never has to go to the line.........
There are at least a handful of point guards (3 of which are playing for the west tonight) that are better point guards, don't have 4 hall of famers to pass the ball to, and don't shy away from getting to the line, take jumpers, and actually make jumpers as part of the team offense - not just as a last second thing or and adjunct to the offense.
Rondo creates 3 second violations, creates 24 second violations, runs and hides in the corner of the court after passing the ball (only after thinking that he has a guaranteed assist).
In the western conference Rondo is not even the 6th best point guard but for some reason there are retarded people think that Rondo is the best point guard in the league.
Give Westbrook, Williams, Paul, Curry, Davis, and a whole bunch of others and Rondo never ever ever gets a sniff at an all-star game. Once Wall gets his game under his belt perhaps over the next couple of years Rondo will never get a sniff given that Rose is already a lot better. Nelson and Harris are only one all-star game behind Rondo and none of those guys play with 4 hall of hamers. Give Harris and or Nelson 4 hall of famers and they have 13 assists but they also shoot 47% from the field, 40% from 3, and 80% from the line.......
Some would love to suggest that Rondo is somehow subjugating his game to take care of his teammates and that they are somehow limiting his game...... I have to go change my depends because there is not even remote possibility that Rondo would start shooting some of these percentages as a result of not having his teammates to pass the ball to.
Gee whiz guys, I would am giving up all of my stats to make sure that you guys keep getting your stats so I am going to continue to be the worst shooter in the league from everywhere on the floor so that you can pad your stats and we can contend......
Oh wait..... we have the 20th scoring team in the league.... there have been all sorts of discussions about how I don't need to score and we continue to score about 98 ppg.... oh wait is that 20th and do we continue to lose games where we don't score 90 or more points and I continue to not move the meter while losign those games? The other night I stepped up and scored 42.... oh nope that was Rose..... and they won and oh they were missing one of their best players..... well when KG was missing games.....ummmmmmm we lost and I ummmm didn't step up... my scoring average went down as did my assist average......... those damn stats and facts really suck considering I am an all-star......
