[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rondo's Shooting's Not That Bad : you do realize that just bc Collison is a pg, doesnt mean that he scored all of his points on Rondo. in fact, Rondo has been playing much better d as of late, and its extremely sad to see ppl still trying to attack something that he obviously excels at when healthy and focused. his ON BALL defense has NOTHING to do with perk, thats a stupid claim. as for him being replaced, you did see the TWO CONSECUTIVE o rbs that Rondo gutted out at the end of tonites game right?? these are the kinds of plays Rondo makes at the end of games all the time (another example being the two hustle plays made against the knicks on anthony) yall need to stop beating the kid up for nothing...seriously. yes he was in a slump, but he appears to be out of it. you cant expect our pg to score 38 pts, 24 assists, 19 rbs and 14 steals every game. it shows wat kinda "fans" some of you are.

Doc finally spanks our PG, holds him out of a game... and suddenly the funk that he has been wallowing in disappears. The coma lifts. The sulking is gone. The demons have been vanquished!
He comes out like a house afire and hits 8 of 10 shots in the first half, hits all his FTs and you wonder.... where has young Rondo been? Who lit the fire under this stranger we see playing out on the court wearing #9?
Didn't last though. Not for a full 48 minutes. Too good to be true.
And what sort of Jekyll/Hyde games is this kid playing? Good game up thru 3 quarters. Rondo is playing with heart.
In the fourth quarter, the old Rondo re-appears though. Two rebounds???? Terrific.. but that's it.
No points. No aggressiveness. No shots. Can't/won't play defense. Collison is eating him up.
The kid who had suddenly awaken from his dreadful slumber, despite the re-injured pinkie, the PF, the bad ankle.... all the old excuses that had mysteriously disappeared earlier in the game... has fallen back into bad habits.
The 1000 year stare is back. The demons are regaining advantage.Play Delonte, doc, when the game is on the line.
Send Rondo yet another message.
He is fried, dried and mystified.
