    Rajon Rondo's 10 Greatest Playoff Stat Lines

    1. 21 points 8 assists 7 rebounds 6 steals in the clinching game of the 2008 NBA Finals...this was the game that told the world he was going to be a force in this league.

    2. 29 points 18 rebounds 13 assists 2 steals vs. Cleveland. This was the game that destroyed Lebron James's confidence and ended his time in Cleveland.

    3. 19 points 16 assists 12 dimes 5 steals 7 offensive rebounds vs the Bulls in Game 2 of the 2009 playoffs. His first career playoff triple double. People were not expecting this. Rondo was still in the shadows and with no KG he took it upon himself to raise his game for the playoffs...and the rest is history.

    4. 19 points 12 rebounds 10 assists vs. the Lakers in 2010 Finals. This game featured maybe 5 iconic highlight reel plays by Rondo and gave the Celtics the confidence they needed.

    5. 15 points 18 assists 11 rebounds 2 steals vs the Magic in 2009. Maybe the only playoff game in history where a triple double is clinched via MONSTER DUNK (over Dwight Howard).

    6. 15 points 20 assists 11 rebounds 2 steals vs the Knicks in the 2011 playoffs.

    7. 8 points 19 assists 9 rebounds vs the Bulls in 2009. I include this game because it was 19 assists and ZERO turnovers. An NBA record.

    8. 13 points 19 assists 4 rebounds 2 steals vs.Cleveland in 2010. Rondo had 19 assists after 3 quarter....after 3 quarters.

    9. 25 points 11 assists 11 boards 2 steals vs the Bulls in 2009. The only time Rondo has gotten a triple double and lost.

    10. 19 points 16 rebounds 6 assists 4 steals vs the Magic in 2009. Rondo averaged 10 boards that series vs Dwight Howard.

    There was alot of hateful comments made toward Rondo before the playoffs started. I just wanted to remind people how great this alien actually is.

    Hateful? How about the truth?

    Rondo is immature and erratic. His triple double games vs not when you look at National TV vs home is a joke. He cruises way too often. Both of his coaches since he was a Freshman in college have called him uncoachable, as has his GM - Ainge.

    He's a brutal FT shooter, and a poor shooter out of the lane. He peaked out in 2008-2010 when it looked like he might fashion a HOF career. Since then his stats have fallen off, and his D once very good (w/ too much risk for steals) has become awful as he was getting beaten on routine plays when he was trying this year.

    He can't lead the Celts forward because he's not a leader, even though Doc, Ainge, KG, and PP have tried to pass the mantle too him . That's a lack of maturity and personality. He can't lead them on the floor because he has three offensive strengths. Passing (you need someone too finish, say goodbye to the 3 HOF players he's had most of the way), driving (he's doing less and less because of the pounding he takes, because his FT% sucks), and finally rebound (very nice for a PG, but a fraction of what a 5, 4, or most 3's gets). How can a pass first PG work on a team of below average talent, and with his D declining, what else does he have to offer?


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    KID, was a nickname used for Rondo in this case. Not KIDD, as in Jason Kidd.
    This is a plea to all logical posters to please make all homers feel dumb on a daily basis until they return to their team forum where they bleong.

    He performs when it matters most. Even his jumpshot and free throws are better in the playoffs.

    So that means he's Magic Johnson now?

    It's amazing how he seems to get triple doubles every other playoff game.
