    Re: Revisiting the Rondo and Big 3 theory

    The C's dont necessarily have to be in a rebuilding mode next year. In fact, I think they will be in better position this summer to build around the Big 3 for a legitimate title run. With the two picks, the C's can at least bring in young athletes that can be consistent contributors in the rotation. If they choose to resign KG and maybe Allen to lesser contracts, they still should have enough money to go after a good center like McGee or Kaman.

    I do not think the C's are a realistic title contender this year, but I think the decline of this team due to age is a bit exaggerated. In a condensed season which hurts older teams moreso than others, the C's are still contending for the 3rd seed in the east playoffs. That is pretty impressive all things considered. Allen, Pierce, and KG are not what they once were, but they are all still very effective

    As a Celtic fan, there is nothing current worth talking about. We are the 7th seed in a horrible conference and will be eliminated in the first round of the playoffs this year. Please enlighten me on some positive current events, bro.

    [QUOTE]Rondo's one of the best passers in the NBA, he's as good as Steve Nash when it comes to passing. The only problem with Rondo is he doesn't make defenses play him. He needs to score more, like 15-16 every game. Since the trade deadline passed Rondo's scoring has dipped. In the last 10 games Rondo's only averaging 7.9 ppg. http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/3026/rajon-rondo

    I liked the way KoMe and the Lackers defense weren't able to contain Rondo when he decided to take it to the hole.  The Celtics lost the game but Rondo showed when he wants to get to the hole he can't be stopped, just hacked.

    Celtics:  4th seed.     The team that has the best record in each of the three divisions in each conference is declared division champion. The three champions, and another team in the conference with the best record, are seeded one through four by their records. .... I hate to bore the board with rule quotes but since you obviously don't know anything about basketball I thought I would do you the favor.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Revisiting the Rondo and Big 3 theory : haha, absolutely no reason to argue, you are very reasonable in your observations!  im not ignorant enough to think that The Big 3 havent helped Rondo in his career at all, thinking that would be foolish and uneducated. the thing that irks me is when people say he is only effective BC of the big 3. logic would suggest that if that were true, Rondo would be declining each year as the big 3 are, when i think its quite obvious that he is developing himself into being a very good player, elite at his position. interestingly enough, its Brandon Bass that Rondo is getting the most assists from. altho very good, idk of anyone who is going to call Bass an elite player. he also was making Chris Wilcox look very good b4 his injury, and seems to be building chemistry with Ryan Hollins.  my point is that yes, its always a benefit of having good shooters on your team. but when you take into effect the amount of players Rondo is getting shots, you cant really place his success solely on the Big 3.  and thats not directed at you neccesarily,OneonOne, just making a general statement.
    Posted by JamezHill24[/QUOTE]

    Sure right about one thing. He has made some super plays for other guys this year, more than in the past. Wilcox was not doing much, started moving and running the floor, Rondo found him and Boom he was a effective player. I see the same happening with Hollins. Best passer in the game no doubt.

    AB looks substantially different playing the 2 as opposed to the 1. theres an obvious difference and he is a natural 2..it is wat it is. could he develop? sure..but he prefers the 2 so im not sure doc will want to change him from a position he prefers and is better at.

    Its nice to have that combo ability, gives us more versatility. That kid has really come along..but ultimately, the C's will go as far as Rondo goes,this is his year to take that extra step. I believe he will. If not, then he may be gone next year...

    Very, very true!  Rondo is the best point guard in the Association, bar none!  There are not many that have ever had his skill set and he's still coming into his own.  I also believe the Celtics have a reasonable chance to win it all this year.  We'll see.

    Well, I guess he stepped up big time, again...how many triple doubles does this guy have to produce in a season to get the credit he deserves...??? Whats the record anyway...Did'nt he just break the assist record...?? Maybe if he leads the league in rebounding, some will take notice...

    Thank You Jimmy!!!!,,,for not taking the trade,,,just in case it was offered...

    That would have haunted us for a decade...

    Danny ain't no fool!  In addition to the Poor Gas Oil mixture (Gasol), By None (Bynum), and an old KoMe (3 for 99), the Lackers would need to throw in 5 or 6 first round draft picks for the Celtics to get close to fair value for "the best point guard in the Association, bar none!"  Danny ain't no moron either; the Fakers were trying to get the best for old, spare parts.  No happenings, just sportscasters gossiping.

    Thanks.  I'm obviously a big Rondo fan and believe him to be the best in the Association.  I also love the Celtics as much now as I did in the 20+ years when they were irrelevant.  I never will understand all the criticism from those who profess to be fans.  I'm pulling for them to win it all as I have for the last 43 years.

    As Always,
