let's see ... one's goal in life is to avoid shooting, avoid finishing, avoid getting to the line, avoid shooting 3s..... entire teams shoot better than 40%, entire teams shoot better than 75% from the line, entire teams shoot more than 48% from the field, Rondo does not of that..... he also barely leads the league in steals and assists and does not lead the league in rebounds from the point guard position so somehow one is supposed to believe that given all of these facts Rondo is somehow an elite point guard.....
So none of these things about Rondo is true.....
Let's see a normal point guard views taking jumpers as part of his job description - Rondo avoids it - I guess we grade that as an Incomplete or failure to participate
Let's see a normal point guard views taking and making 3s at a reasonable rate as part of his job description - Rondo avoids it at all costs or we see that as an incomplete grade or failure to participate
Let's see a normal point guard takes about 5 or 6 free throws per game and makes 80 or 90% of them - Rondo avoids getting to the rim at all costs and when he gets there missses most - incomplete or failure to participate
Rondo's stengths make up for his weaknesses so he averages 5% more assists than the next best guy
Rondo' strengths make up for his weaknesses so he averages 5% more steals per game than the next guy......
Rondo has a 3 on 1 break and looks into the back court so that he does not have to be involved
Rondo's coach says he needs to be a more complete player and he has a p oo p oo in his diaper
He was excused from Team USA because his coach says we cannot afford to have players on the floor that cannot shoot
His own coach uses the excuse of length in losing the finals but then says that his point guard's inability to shoot really hurt them in the playoffs......
need I go on?
If Rondo was scoring 23 a game but only averaged 8 assists and 5 rebounds per game they would not be better? No of course not, that would be last week's player of the week in the West, Russell Westbrook. Somehow on BDC there is a debate that Westbrook is not better - well maybe 2 years from when Westbrook is in year 5 he might be as good as Rondo.... lllllllmmmmmmmmaaaaaaaaaaaoooooooo
If Rondo actually could shoot and still average 11 assists per game.. no of course not, that would be Steve Nash...
Stop hitting snooze... wake up.....
Interview with Rondo -
Hey Rajon - how do you consider yourself as a free throw shooter? Well most of my best peers take between 5 and 6 a game and they shoot between 80 and 90 percent...... ok so where do you rank yourself? Incomplete - I can't be bothered with that aspect of the game - if I go a week without taking a free throw it is better for my team.
Hey Rajon - how do you consider yourself from the 3 point line? Well most of my peers shoot at least in the 30s but I try to avoid that but I still consider myself as one of the best point guards in the league - haven't you seen my assist stats..... why yes Rajon I have seen your assist stats you are marginally better than the rest of the guys and they all take and make jumpers, 3s, and free throws.
Hey Rajon - what do you think about your jumper? Well it is not really part of my game and the point guards that take jumpers don't understand their roles they don't understand they are supposed to pass.
Really? then why do they score so much but only average a couple fewer assists than you? Rajon - What are you some sort of math major?
Hey Rajon by how many steals per game do you lead the league? About 10 steals per game.
Hey Rajon why do you think that once you relieve yourself of the ball do you never get the ball back? Um well once I don't have the ball it is up to the other guys to get me an assist.
Hey Rajon some say that if you were 5% less athletic you would be a backup - what do you think of that? Just look at the last 15 games.... I am a back up......
None of these claims are actually correct...... in Bizzaroworld..... thank goodness for Sienfeld, it always provides someone an out.......
I hate when facts ruin a good story..... Hey Kyle Lowry when you destroy Rondo tonight do you think that the Cs fans should reconsider Rondo's skills? Nope, he is definitely within the top 30 starting point guards in the league.
