[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Why is Rondo blamed when Garnett goes 5-19 or like tonight when him and kristic only starters near 50 percent? : How in the world does Rondo get so wide open for those killer elbow jumpers? DRose can't get that wide open for the life of him. Anybody have a theory? Pud

The difference between those that are objective and those that are not is that those that are not envision Rondo as some sort of guy that just "takes over games" and "carries the team on his back" - after all as I have read here, it is his team - lmao. He had several layups blocked last time and made a few wide open jumpers and somehow there are posters that think he is dominant. He had 12 points and 5 assists. Why did he not have as many assists as usual? Because players on his team are making passes to guys that have better shots available, namely Krstic. Rondo goes in the corner and calls for the ball and the other 4 guys on the floor are busting a gut.
The fact that there was a thread debating Rondo vs. Rose is more than enough explanation and indication of the complete inability to be objective.
Last night is a perfect example of how Rondo is not even close to being in Rose's class. The team was having a bit of a hard time scoring and Rondo didn't drop 35 on a 20 year old second year point guard did he? Rondo clanged his normal number of jumpers but some will hold up his 50% shooting as some sort amazing feat - hey nobody guard and let me see if I can make 50%.
The same guys that think Rondo is averaging 18 assists per game and is about to obliterate the all time record are the same guys that can't quite fathom how when they look at the stats he is less than 1 assist ahead of the next guy and going down every day.
The same guys that want to somehow suggest that Rondo is a good shooter must simply cannot see the pressure that he creates on the offense once the ball is out of his hands.
The same guys thinking Rondo is averaging 7 steals per game and there are bunch of other guys lumped in around 2 are the same guys.....
That think Rondo's being at or near the top of the league in a couple of categories make up for what his weaknesses are......
The guy is averaging fewer points than aissists but reading here one would come away with the perspective that Rondo is threatening the Durantula for leading the league.
He is and has been since he came into the league the worst shooter in the league, in year 5 the logical defense is double off him, clog the lane and generally igore him.
I assume these same guys are the ones that think that if Russell Westbrook played in the East he would not have been player of the week last week, oh and these are the same guys that think that while Westbrook is 3 years younger can somehow not be as good as Rondo.......
Dreeaamm, dream, dream, dream, dream, dreaam....... who wrote that song?
