In Response to Re: Rajon Rondo: The best point guard in the Association, bar none.
[QUOTE]Another somewhat stellar performance by Mr. Rondo in directing the Celtics to another victory, this time minus the Big Three. According to many on this forum, Rondo only accomplishes what he does because he has 3 future Hall of Famers to pass to. Today, he had 20 points on 8 of 17 from the field and 4 of 7 from the free throw line. Not perfect, but he can score when needed. He had 16 assists and not one was to KG, PDub, or Ray Ray! Wow, that must be some kind of myth buster! The 16 assists continues a streak of double-digit assist games accomplished by only two other point guards in the 50+ year history of the NBA, but Rondo is not even one of the top 25 plus point guards according to some pundits, most notably milk Dud and Pud(dle). He almost had a quadruple double today if he just could have gotten 4 more rebounds and 2 more turnovers (humor)! How many point guards get that close? We can't count KoMe in the turnover department, because he almost averages double-digits in that category (sarcasm). Regardless, I am still of the opinion that Rondo is "the best point guard in the Association, bar none!" As Always,

Thanks for the great thread, J-Lock.
I wanted to write one with a similar title, but I'm on a time delay broadcast.
a) Rondo makes everyone around him better.
b) He is the smartest player on the floor every night.
c) He gives the game what it needs on a game by game basis (see tonight).
d) He's still young and improving, not even close to the player he will be in his prime. Look out!
e) He's taken his game to a new level since the beginning of the season.
Naysayers and negative-nellies are endemic to the Boston Sports scene. But short-sightedness, negativity, and the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately mentality do not make for great analysis.
Rondo: best point-guard in the league, bar none.
