Problem is hes an offensive cupcake.... Really a glorified uber athletic bruce bowen-type minus the 3ball
Accept the article is solely about his defense, so what's your point? I'm talking about what he is, not about what he's not.
And if by "glorified Bowen" you mean he virtually destroys him in every statistical category, doubling or tripling Bowen's career stats in everything except 3pt shooting... And consistently the most dangerous transition/fast break player in the league besides Lebron, and best passer in the league at his position besides Lebron... Just a much better overall player in every aspect of the game except 3 point shooting. They're in different leagues man and Iggy contributes in so many other ways, they just happen to both be great defenders and play the same position. That's the only thing they have in common. About as baseless as the Jrue/Iverson comp.
Maybe it's too early to be scoreboard watching... But the Celtics play the Magic tonight. After that, they have what should be a pretty difficult stretch, playing: Clippers, Lakers, Denver, Bulls, @ Denver, @ Lakers in 6 of their next 8 games.
I'm still not convinced that they're too much worse off w/o Rondo, but if we can rack up some wins in that stretch, we can make things very interesting by the break and around Bynum's anticipated return.
I think rondo is so overrated.... Overrated defnder and individual assists have no impact on wins whatsoever
I pretty much agree. Assists CAN contribute to winning, but there's not as strong a correlation as you'd think, even for teams as a whole.
Look at Boston, they have one of the highest assist to field goal ratios in the league, and they're a game under .500... Other teams with high assist to field goal ratios include Toronto, Minnesota, Washington, etc. The Knicks, Miami, Memphis, Indiana, and OKC have some of the lowest assist to field goal ratios in the league, and they're atop the standings.
They might miss Sullinger more than Rondo even though he's just a midling role player.
Kobe is still on his assist tear. This is a new level of desperation to win games that we haven't seen from the Lakers or Kobe in a while. He's not only passing the ball.....he's practically Steve Nashing it out there. And Nash is automatic as a spot up shooter playing off of Kobe. They are not an elite team. But they are finally doing about as well as they can with that roster. If Kobe can stop gunning, then anything is possible. Democrats and Repbulicans will start to agree on common sense solutions. Cats and Dogs will become lovers.
