One should never doubt the heart of this team. They play hard. They don't always have enough to show for their efforts, but this is a stage of development every team goes through - learning how to work individually and collectively to maximize effort.
They do compete most games so a lack of talent is definitely not the reason they struggle to win. It's more that they are a hodge podge and redundancy of talent. If one just wants to focus on winning more games the glaring weaknesses are decision-making and on-court leadership. These are things Rondo will bring to the mix. He's not going to turn the C's into title contenders, but they will start winning some of these games they have been losing. If it is "triple double" Rondo that returns, it scares the hell out of those wanting the C's to tank for the draft lottery.
