[QUOTE]In Response to Re: We've been Exposed; Rondo's Time is Up : Again, it's not about tonight. Last season's Finals was a classic example of an athletic team versus an old team that relied on basketball IQ, great defense, and great shooting. All of the athleticism of Miami couldn't beat a smarter Dallas team. The question is, is Rondo our franchise player? If not then get rid of him now and save the season. We are not a fundamentally sound team. We're a poor rebounding team and the most athletic player is just shooting 56% from the FT line. All championship teams are fundamentally sound. Do we want to be the Miami Heat of 2011 or the Dallas Mavs of 2011?

Trade Rondo? And get what in return? That wont cure everyone else on the team being old, unatheletic or not ready for prime time. Instead of trading Rondo, blow up the Big 3. What happens when this new point guard or Dooling is having an off night? The big 3 will still be old and not making shots. So far Ray is the lone bright spot. But for how long? Trading Rondo will do nothing for having a KG that wont post up or Paul Pierce whose pump fakes no longer work or Doc refusing to play rookies.
You keep talking about a system and how harper did it with the Lakers and got one more ring. True, but he was familiar with the system already from the Bulls. Dooling is new and is not a starter. That would be dumb.
Rondo is the future and the pieces around him have one foot in the glue factory or ready to collect SSI. I watch so many times Rondo is hustling grabbing loose balls and getting rebounds and pushing the ball with no one to pass it too because the old big 3 is still in the back court.
No rebounds, no rings....Pierce lead the team tonight and that is a F$%king shame!!!!!! If they would have grabbed more boards they win. If they would have played FUNDAMENTAL offense and defense, they win!!!! Rondo, has improved and is improving. Exposed??? Nahhhh.
Oh, BTW, i seen every last player on the court for the Celtics pass up wide open shots and hesitant to shoot. So it all on Rondo.
