[QUOTE]I am glad Rondo is the Celtics PG. But I just cannot understand why folks proclaim he's the best because of one great game where he showcased a weakness just like those who say trade him because he gets suspended for a game. Someone noted that when he had the triple double in game 3, he shot 7 for 22 and all 7 of his FGs were within 3 feet of the hoop. In that game he missed every single one of his perimeter jump shots. What does it all mean? To me, it means let's not proclaim him the best or trade him based on one game. I'd much rather see him continue to progress with a level of all around consistenty and enjoy the fruits of that as it contributes to the Celtics success. More than that, I am really looking forward to seeing him once the big 3 are gone. I'm excited about that prospect. Can't wait! Honestly, any proclamation of Rondo's stature is irrelevant to me because I don't personally believe he is, by far, the best. But I do believe he is the " best PG for THIS CELTICS team " and that's good enough for me.

Petey, listen to yourself..one game? so yesterday was the first good game rondo has had in his career? so last night was Rondo's BEST game of his career?
he does this time, and time, and time again. the only active player with more playoff triple doubles than Rondo is Jason Kidd. right now he is tied with LEBRON JAMES. can this really mean nothing to people??
the problem is, people only care about shooting. ppl say his triple double the other night wasnt good bc of 7-22. guys, basketball isnt only about shooting the ball. TRIPLE-double, which means he had 2 other categories in which he had at least 10! thats a complete game to me. thats doing a little bit of everything. i honestly am more impressed by a 15,15,14 night than i am a 35,7 and 5 night. some get so mesmerized by seeing a player score every time down the court, that they miss the value of a "stat-sheet stuffer". Rondo does a bit of everything. he is among the best rebounders in the NBA at his position, has led the league in steals one year and was the NBA assists leader this year. Rondo has gotten so good that ppl dont even blink when he continuously has 13 or 14 assist nights. 14 assists? people, players dont do that! and he does it ALL THE TIME..and sprinkles in 16-24 assist games every once in awhile. thats greatness!
Lebron James gets so much credit as being the best in the league not bc of his scoring ability, but bc he can score while also having rebounding and passing abilities, and defense. he gets it done in every category, and is praised for it. yet Rondo is continually bashed for only having an average jumpshot?
petey, im sorry, but saying "bc of one game" is extremely ignorant and close-minded (and i respect your opinions and posts on these boards). he does this all the time and VERY consistently in the playoffs..its time to start recognizing it.
ull have to show me when Russell Westbrook has ever done nething like this:
