    Rondo is playing like a man who lost his best friend (perkins)

    He needs to grow up and realize this is a business. He looks lost and disinterested. It is time to play West and sit this guy. They are less than average at the moment.

    I understand that he had a close friendship with Perk, but he should move on and concentrate on the task at hand, getting #18. He can still hang with Perk in the offseason and there's such a thing called CELLPHONES.

    Danny Ainge said before he was difficult to deal with. Rondo needs to grow up, stay away from rollerskating, and perfect his game.

    If he doesn't grow up, ship him out.

    and there you have it- if this little twerp lollygaggs it through the playoffs and costs us a chance then you BS him into thinking he has an emerging role next year and then trade him once he's showcased as being more competent than he is now.

    i dare say as the sub-steve colter player that rondo is now, he's untradable with 40M left on the books.

    What acie said.  I'm pretty sure the smarter GMs out there know that it's the circumstances in Boston that made Rondo, not the other way around.  He's a 40M bust if you don't already have a strong core to the team.

    He flat dab quit on Coach K and Team USA when things got tough.

    Why is this surprising to anyone here?

    It shouldn't be.

    Can't think of a guard with worse shooting mechanics than RR. In the game of basketball, what's more important than being able to stick the ball in the hole?

    In baseball, a .110 hitter would be out of the league or playing for Pittsburgh.

    In bowling, a gutter ball thrower would be out of the local league.

    A golfer who can't make a 5-foot putt (there are plenty) won't be in any tourney.

    A wide receiver who can't hang onto the ball will be on the bench.

    I don't understand why Ainge signed a starter who can't shoot a jump shot?

    " 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."

    Jason Kidd learned how to shoot and is number  three on the three point list behind Ray and Reggie.

    Jason Kidd is indeed a darn good player!!!

    But then again, DA didn't sign future HOFer Jason Kidd.

    He didn't sign Rajon Kidd or Jason Rondo.

    He did sign a "special needs player" named Rajon Rondo with not only shooting problems but leadership problems too...  and guess what?

    After 5 seasons? You guessed it!  Quite a rollerskater.

    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.

    What is stunningly amazing to me is that all of this is new to most posters /  fans / bloggers.........  when a baseball team has a really good lineup you hear things like "I don't care if the shortstop can't hit his weight as long as he plays great defense"........  this has been Rondo for 5 years - he is a function of the system, his coach directed him to become a complete player, he cannot and it shows and of course everyone blames the trade......

    last 15 games - 37% from the field, 8 points per game, 9 assists, ZERO % from 3, and only two games where he shot over 50% from the line - in many of those games he shot ZERO % from the line so he either took none or missed all the ones he took......  elite point guard?  please....  "but Doc don't you know that if I have to take actual shots and go to the line I will be exposed as a back up and have no business being on the floor?".....

    What comparisons are left?  Fat Lever, TR Dunn?

    How about C Paul, Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook, John Wall, Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, John Stockton, Bob Cousy, Dennis Johnson, Kevin Johnson, Magic Johnson, Tony Parker, Isaiah Thomas, Tiny, Walt Frazier, etc......  well at least in Rondo's mind there is no comparison......lmao....
