In Response to Re: Where are all the Rondo hater tonight??
[QUOTE]Rondo hate is overwhelming on this site. I've had more people respond to my posts negatively for lauding rondo's performances than any other reason. If he has a triple double, why didn't he score more? when he scores thirty, like game 2, why didnt he get 39 assists? Appreciate the fact that when his game is on, he's one of the biggest matchup problems in the nba. As doc said tonight in postgame, Rondo called a perfect game. It takes skill to get it to the hot hands, in the right spots, at the right time.

Good points. It's like Terry Francona. He makes game decisions in one or two innings that win a game for the Sox, so trolls b-tch about a questionable 9th inning decision. Theo makes some great trade, picks upsome great free agents and some point out all the bad moves he's made. Boston,Philly and other cities are noted to be tough towns to play in because some but not all the fans expect perfection when it's not realistic.
Back to Rondo. We are on the outside looking in. With the Perkins trade, it's obvious they were great freinds and it was disruptive to the team as it affected not just Rondo, but the Big three and others, but that was a chance taken with the trade and obviously wasn't expected.
Maybe he has a fragile personality as some say. That's something that may not changeable, it's his personality and if it's worth it long term for the team, you do your best and put up with his frailty. That's up to the coach and management to decide. Whether it be Rondo, Theo, Tito etc, a number of fans expect way too much and no matter what some players or coaches do, they will find fault.
During Celtics blow out of the Knicks, Karloft posted 5-10 times during game about every small thing, bad pass, questionable shots, etc of Rondo and others. Yikes !!
The Celtics won going away, plus before the subs came in were ahead by 22 points. Rondo finishes with a triple double, a point guard getting 11 rebounds and 20 assists and he's being micro-managed by Karloft.
