[QUOTE]" don't understand why Ainge signed a starter who can't shoot a jump shot?" Because he has this crazy idea Jason Kidd was a pretty good player.
Sports guy summed it up way better than you guys: " Danny Ainge should comfort KG, Paul and Ray in the locker room by telling them that our Clippers pick is unprotected in 2016."

hmmm. the only problem is that your analogy doesn't even come close to holding water. kidd scored in this league early on and by his third season he never looked back on 70% free throws. and these days he's 80% FT automatic.
and worse yet (to your arguement of kidd = rondo) kidd has steadily become an increasing 3 point threat for YEARS to the point where he started in the low 30's and has progressed to being a consistent 40% 3 point shooter for YEARS NOW.
rajjie rondo hasn't even broken 30% yet. the most 3's he ever shot in a game was a shade over 1 for a season avg. his best FT% ever was 64% as a ROOK or 2nd year player and he's been up and down over the five years since, mostly and increasingly DOWN on the FT% year to year.
there are no similarities with kidd. or magic, or any of the tired half baked analogies you rondo supporters try to make.
the only analogy that half way holds water is rondo to mookie blaylock. the only problem being that while they USED TO BE (before rondo got sad) more or less equal defensively and passing the ball, rondo cannot play offense worth a squat. so even that analogy falls flat. mookie shot FT's and 3's well above average, and scored up to 18 any given year in the league. rondo not even close.
so what's left to compare to? TR dunn or fat lever? fat lever doesn't compare because he was a much better offensive player who could shoot.
so TR dunn? is that the legendary equal to rondo? NOPE because tr dunn was a lock down defender who didn't gamble for steals like rondo does. oh well. it was close there for a minute.
