[QUOTE]In Response to Re: To all the we are better off with nate than Rondo bashers : Can't because...... if PP had kicked the ball out to Rondo for the game winning shot, Rondo would have bobbled it or shuffled his feet turning the ball over as the buzzer sounded. Pierce had full confidence in Delonte to take the shot... which he did. I am simply not used to watching the level of fright that Rondo exhibits in an NBA player. I don't know quite what to make of it. Maybe you do. Pud

An NBA game comprises of full 48 minutes (if the game doesn't go into overtime). Crunch time is defined as the last 5 minutes of the game IF the game is closely contested. A good % of games are not even closely contested.
So, based on these numbers, an overwhelming majority of the game is played in the "Non Crunch" mode. Rondo is a stud in the "Non Crunch" mode. Announcers, on a regular basis, mention that Rondo is dominating the game even when the game includes players like Lebron, Wade, Howard, Rose and even Kobe.
So mathematically speaking, Rondo is a stud. Even based on your definitions.
Now, for the "Crunch" time (which is a small portion of game time) you say Rondo stinks. First of all, I disagree. I think he is a stud here as well. But even if he wasnt, overall he is still a stud because he plays like that through most of the game.
Get over it. Seriously. You, Dudder and Aciemvp are like broken records. You site the same reasons over and over again, mean while Rondo keeps dishing assists, getting Ws, and leading his team to a leage leading FG% (by a huge margin to the second spot).
