    Rondo has his warts, but I would'nt trade him for any PG in the league...

    He is still perfect for us. He is still getting better, while CP3 and Deron Williams are not.

    Even D Rose cannot lead team offense and defense as well.

    Let's try not to ruin the good thing we've got more than we already have Danny!

    I'd trade him for CP3 any day, but not Rose nor DWill because they cannot set up our other Big 3 with passing.  If you have a weaker team, Rose and DWill are massively better, but with shooters like Ray, Paul, and KG on your team, Rondo is a better fit.

    CP3 is the only one who can shoot, pass, is not selfish, makes the steals, and rebounds (although he doesn't rebound as well as Rondo).

    Chris Paul is 4.6 vs Rondo 4.4 career rebounds per game and 6.7 vs 5.5 post season RPG.

    Rondo is well behind CP3, DWill and D Rose. Rondo is a poor man's pg, can't shoot a lick and sulks with the best. All star in the sulking conference I'd trade him in a heart beat!

    Fisher in his prime is an easy up-grade over Rondo. Last time I looked he had 5 rings. And who can ever forget the pain of this:

    Fisher has hit big shot after big shot in his career. Sadly, Rondo can't hit a barn door from 3 feet but at least I keep hearing he's working on his jumper!

    Hats off to you, Coach, for trying to talk some common sense into these kids heads.

    Yeah, the grass is always greener, but you better watch out what you wish for cause you just might get it, and it might not be what you thought it would be.

    It ain't broke so don't fix it, and you don't miss your water till the well runs dry.  Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Ya know, the road to ruin is paved with good intentions.

    End of story.

    Nuff said.

    Agree.

    Rondo does bring some intangibles other PGs do not, both good and bad. As good as Rondo can be at times, hes not consistent and is such a liability with his jumper & FT shooting that we're forced into a jump shooting team.

    CP3 is light years ahead of ROndo and DRose /DWilliams  much better all around game. Add in the Rondo's tempermental issues and its a no brainer.

    I also dont see our Big 3 suffering much from replacing Rondo with either of those other 3. It means one less defender sagging off Rondo to double team someone else. Can you imagine how many more open shots  we get with the ball in DRose's hands? He's sure to get double teamed whereas Rondo sometimes isnt even guarded at all.

    Rose is a wonderful kid and I love his humitly (although not his passing).   DWill, on the other hand, has as much attitude as Rondo....just a different attitude.   That's why he and Sloan did not get along.   So, I love a lot about DWill, but you can't say Rondo's temperment is a problem when comparing him to Williams.

    I think I can say Rondo's temperment is a problem when comparing him to William s in that Rondo's issues spill onto the floor and is reflected in how he plays.

    WHen DWill was having his problems with Sloan (who I always loved as a player and coach) I cant recall if he just stops playing like Rondo does.

    Yeah he is perfect for us, I wish we had more players that couldn't finish, could not get the ball wet standing waist deep in the ocean, automatically creates a double team against his own team's best players - we need more players that nobody guards, cannot be on the floor in crunch time because he cannot hit a free throw to save his life and so on.  Perfect.

    Dantoni said it best - I would like to see how he plays in Minnesota, i.e. without being surrounded by stars.  If he was Williams, Rose, or Paul they would have won the title the year KG was hurt for the playoffs and they would have won the title the year Perk got hurt in game 6 as well and they likely could have gotten by Miami last year.......

    Call me crazy, I know it is only a silly little thing like a statistic but if Chris Paul averages more rebounds over his career how he is then not as good a rebounder as Rondo?

    If there 10 facets of someone's game and that person enters the league with proficiency in 3 of the ten, there is plenty of room for improvement.  If three other players enter the league proficient in 7 of the 10 facets and outstanding in 5 of the 10, there is less room for improvement.  So Rondo should still be getting better.  Just about every national debate as to who is the best all around point guard there are usually two names, Paul and Williams, oh and Rose - he got some sort of trophy last year - MVP or something like that, I forget.

    As soon as you get personal null, you lose.  Rondo is actually a pure point guard, a rare commodity in the shoot first league.   

    Just wait until D Rose fails to win a title in the next 2 years, the criticism of his selfishness will be the primary thing people focus on.
