    Rondo the best PG in the game?

    Cousins, speaking with Bill Simmons of Grantland, was talking about Blake Griffin when the Kings center turned the discussion to Paul.
    Simmons: “I thought you guys had a little beef, right?”
    Cousins: “Nah.”
    Simmons: “Nothing?”
    Cousins: “Just a little rivalry, but I don’t have a problem with Blake.”
    Simmons: “Didn’t you guys almost get in a fight once?”
    Cousins: “No.”
    Simmons: “Altercation? Argument?”
    Cousins: “No.”
    Simmons: “Nothing?”
    Cousins: “No.”
    Simmons: “You sure? I feel like I was at a game where that might have happened.”
    Cousins: “No.”
    Simmons: “There was some talking?”
    Cousins: “Probably me and CP, but not me and Blake. I don’t have a problem with Blake.”
    Simmons: “Oh, you’re one of the guys who doesn’t like – there’s a lot of guys who CP kind of bugs.”
    Cousins: “Yeah, I dislike CP a lot.”
    Simmons: “CP does a lot of talking.”
    Cousins: “I know.”
    Simmons: What if you saw him off the court? You’d be OK with him, right?”
    Cousins: “I don’t have a problem.”
    Simmons: “The good news is you’re like 12 inches taller than him if you ever have – he’s like 5-10.”
    Cousins: “I know. That’s usually how it goes. It’s the small ones.””
    Simmons: “Could you play with somebody like that, who’s just like a Chihuahua, just barking at everybody for three hours?”
    Cousins: “Yeah, because I’m the same way.”

    I love that Cousins essentially admits that he dislikes Paul because they play for different teams. That’s really the root of the whole issue. Put them on the same team, and they’d be best buds. Now, though, there’s nothing to link them.
    Later, the conversation turns to another polarizing player, Rajon Rondo.

    Simmons: So you think Rondo is the best point guard in the league?
    Cousins: Absolutely.
    Simmons: How much of that has to do with the fact that you and Chris Paul don’t like each other that much.
    Cousins: Nothing at all.

    Evidently, Blake and DMC are cool despite a couple of instances but he really disliked CP3, which I can understand because he can be pretty annoying.

    But this BS about Rondo? Hate at its finest. Chris Paul is LEVELS ahead of Rondo.

    Thoughts?

    Rondo the best PG in the game?

    True point guard. I see nothing wrong with it. I wouldn't pick a single PG over rondo if I wanted a pass first ideal point guard

    Exactly, Rondo and CP3 are a coin toss for best PG, in terms of pass first. However, if you judge Rondo in terms of being a better player vs. the other PGs than CP3, Parker/Westy/Curry, Lillard, Rose, Kyrie>Rondo. Can't lie though Rondo kinda stat pads his assists, he would give up an open layup just to get an assist and sometimes he gives up easy points for himself just to get an assist, hurting his team. Although, he is not the only one to do so.

    wtf does "true", or "pure" PG mean?

    Rondo is nowhere near the top PG in the game.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I'm wondering the same and agree, Idk how it'd be a tough choice between those 2, Paul has been the best PG the last 6-7 years.

    That means a guy who envisions himself as the 5th scorer out there. A guy who looks to dish the rock to someone else who has a possibility of scoring. A guy who can create opportunities for others to score.

    well then I don't want a "pure", or "true" PG on my team. A lead guard runs both sides of the floor, and does what is necessary for his team to run efficiently.

    I usually find the terms are used for PG's who suck at scoring, and need scorers around them to be on a winning team. Hence, not the best PG's at all...

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Paul? Hell, give me plenty more before I take Rondo.
