Ok if Rondo doesn't have three hall of famers to dish the ball to at the start of his career he is mentioned in nowhere near the same breath.
If the Celtics or any other franchise ever had to rely on Rondo as their superstar without supporting stars they'd be anemic.
I don't think Rondo has the Steve Nash effect because people don't respect his scoring ability outside of the paint.
Considering rondo is carrying the team this year (and i thought he did last year from watching games...stats will disagree though) and rondo is shooting a career high %age from 18 feet id say this is asaine
Since 2010 rondo hasnt been carried by those guys rondo holds his own weight and gets easy shots for those hall of fames because they cant score on there own anymore
And its much easier to tally up those assits numbers rondo did when they play off of him and cheating to another celtics player cause rondo cant shoot
They didnt shake us they made us stronger!

Jason Kidd was a leader though. You're talking about a point guard who kept his team together. Rondo is a good defender, playmaker etc. . . However he lacks a key intangible when it comes to running a team.
The Celtics are struggling to get into a groove and instead of slowig down the offense working the ball inside and starting to get it back Rondo lets his frustration get the better of him. Hollinger said he saw Rondo play 4 times this year and Rondo took himself out of all 4 games. You can't count on a player who can't on himself.
Rondo was just mad he got the **** blocked out of him a few plays ago. KG flopped on the foul like the ***** that he is. When push comes to shove, KG needs to hide behind the Jet and Rondo. Glad GForce went right at him.
