Kendrick Perkins told Chris Mannix of SI that Rajon Rondo said "Chris Paul has the stats that he has because he has the ball in his hands all game."





Look, forget about what Rondo said. I’m sure every point guard– in his own mind, anyway– thinks he’s the greatest. Forget about the fact that he totally has it backwards; put Chris Paul on the Celtics with Pierce, Garnett, and Allen, and they’d win like 75 games, is more like it. The funniest part about this is, I cannot imagine what Perkins was thinking, telling that to a media guy. I mean, what did he think was going to happen there?

Rondo, that little alien looking *** is really talking ****?
Paul has the way more complete game, is a better leader, has better vision. Switch Paul for Rondo, than the Celtics got another championship headed there way.

I am not surprised Rondo said that, hell, he's around guys who say their the best player in the world (Pierce) and another head case in Garnett, plus who knows what Ray Allen says about himself as a shooter (maybe nothing, i don't honestly know). I like those guys no doubt but for their play not their words. I think Rondo is amazing and works well with the group he has. If I were starting a franchise though, say hello to Paul.

Rondo didn't compare himself to Paul. He didn't even say anything too terrible.


Rajon Rondo said "Chris Paul has the stats that he has because he has the ball in his hands all game."

That's all he said :shrug:

Through three games Rondo is averaging 12.3 apg, 2.3 spg, 5.7 rpg in 31.3 mpg, on 62% FG shooting. He's playing less than three full quarters per game, and is only shooting the ball five times a game. Rondo IS putting up Paul like numbers, in every category except scoring.

Paul is overall better and has a little more balance to his game than rondo, but it's not out of the question it's arguable. When rondo was the center peice he damm near averaged a triple double in the playoffs, most of you guys are just haters. And it's not even like rondo went to the media with this, the majority of you guys are haters.

Rondo is exactly the type of point guard you want. He is unselfish, doesn't care about padding his scoring stats like Paul, has fantastic court vision, rebounding ability, and passing skills. He fits in absolutely perfect with the Celtics who have enough pure scorers. Making an arbitrary list of best point guards is pointless because a lot of point guards have a different game and help a team in different ways.

I'm not saying Rondo is better than Paul, but I'm saying that Rondo gives the better Celtics a better chance at winning than a player like Paul because he is more of a pure point guard who looks to pass first as opposed to Paul who more often than not looks to score first, pass second. Which is fine on a team like the Hornets, but on a stacked team like the Celtics it wouldn't work as well.

it doesnt seem like rondo is saying anything about chris paul, he's just telling the celtics he wants the ball more - probably because he's upset about the extension.

Paul is a better rebounder, has way better court vision, and has better leadership qualities, and always tries to win. All better then Rondo.

Rondo is no where close to chris paul...Chris paul is the best point gaurd by far in the league. His closest people are D williams and Steve Nash. Billups and parker are different types and they are great too. But rondo simply can't make a commnent on chris paul because there is a huge gap between them.

CP3 is the best pg in the league hands down. If rondo wants to say cp3 has the ball in his all the time you can say rondo has the most talent around him than any pg in the league which allows him to rack up assist! Watching him against the bulls the amount of easy assist he get is ridiculous! pick and pop with sheed and kg and wait till ray allen roll off screens all game...he has it so easy. If duhon averaged 7-9 assist with the knicks you can easily say he can average as much as rondo if he was on the celtics.

whose complaining? he's in the wrong and he's nit picking so he deserve to get nit picked back. How about he work to get as good as cp3 and maybe he can have more ball control.

azkarraga
11-01-2009, 05:32 PM
If those words are his way to put pressure into his negotiations, that strategy is clearly a mistake. Comparing himself to CP3 is as he doesn't recognize his role on his team. Or, and this is even worst, as if he doesn't understand his role. He's not on the Celtics to become CP3 or DW; that's not what they want or need from him.

He's young and strong, but not wise. And that's what makes lots of people doubt him.

I will say this from an outsider's perspective: Paul is way better, but Rondo appears to be gaining on him. Rondo is pretty great in his own right, he's just not on the elite level Paul is and probably never will be. This is no slight at Rondo.

Anyways, the comment is somewhat true, but that's true of almost all elite players. Lebron, Wade, Paul, Kobe, etc. all have the ball in their hands a ton.That's the nature of the beast, you want the ball in your best player's hands. So congrats to Rondo for stating the obvious.

agree 100% he's good enough to not even worry about what anyone else is doing. That's why I called it nit picking because every superstar has the ball in his hands a lot.

Agree'd.
First, he didn't say anything negative, and wasn't saying that he was better than Paul. Second, for all the haters that say Rondo only gets the assists he gets because he has 3 HOF's around him, you could just as easily say that Paul (who I personally think is the best PG in the league, but not best pure point) gets the points he gets because he's got noone around him to take the scoring burden from him.

Rondo plays extremely well with in the system that he has to play in, so it's not his fault that he had more scoring threats than some others. Just like they used to say that AI only scored so many points because he always took 50 shots a game.

You can argue that Rondo is a better rebounder. I actually believe Rondo has better court vision than Paul...

Rondo never said he was better than Chris Paul. He told Perkins "Chris Paul has the stats that he has because he has the ball in his hands all game."

I find it more shocking that Perkins actually told this to the media.:facepalm:

Wow. Dude that's the last thing Paul is. Your post makes no sense what so ever.

Career Stats:

Paul

9.6 ppg 5.8 apg 4.4 rpg 1.7 spg - 48.1 FG 27.1 3FG

Rondo

So seriously, pull your head out of your rear, and stop being a homer. The only reason Paul looks to score more, is because he doesn't have 3 potential Hall of Famers on his team. Don't forget, Paul still leads his team to the playoffs, even without big names in his team. I DOUBT Rondo would be able to do the stuff he does.

Chris Paul is not a better defender and there court vision and basketball IQ are even. Chris Paul is a much better shooter. which is why he had 30pts and 4-5 assists and Rondo had 16assists. This whole he is way better **** is just you snuffing Rondo because you feel any up and coming point guard is a threat to your precious Chris Paul. Chris Paul is the best point guard in the league, but you make the drop off after that ridiculous. I know Chris Paul is all your only super star but calm down its ****ing twitter man. When he you hear from Rondo's mouth then you can bark

Although Paul is the much, MUCH better scorer, Rondo is nearly on par on the other aspects of the game. I feel Rondo is the better rebounder, and they both have good court vision. Paul is a leader though and can take over games, not really sure that Rondo can even TRY to do it.

Still would take Paul 10/10 times.....

You sound very ignorant and must not watch celtics games and see rondo's talent. He is a pure PG. And you sound dumb with the most talent around him getting him assist, rondo plays Better without them and of course they get jumpers and gets him assist but he finds the open man and gets it where they like. Also its a very difficult job when you have all them great players and getting them involved and making sure they stay sharp. He has 3 hall of famers always demanding the ball so that takes away assist so idk what ur talking about. He can burn cp3 when he wants while CP will juss cry and complain all game. Do not think I am sayin Rondo is as good if not better than Cp cuz I know he is not on his level. Comparing Rajon to Duhon tho is laughable. and Cp used to get most of his assist off chandler anyway so we will see and David West and Peja are also very good shooter and get Cp tons of assist you moron

rondo is stupid. thats like if joe johnson said well im as good as kobe but he just plays better

That is actually not even remotely close to the same thing. Read the damn post, people. Rondo said "Chris Paul has the stats that he has because he has the ball in his hands all game." What he said was true, not stupid. Paul does handle the ball more because he has less help, while Rondo is not forced to run the entire offense. He didn't say or even come close to saying he was better than CP3.

Maybe...and Paul could counter his argument by saying "Rondo only has a championship because he has KG and Paul Pierce and Ray Allen on his team."

Are stats really that important?

Rondo is right but he seems to be saying he is better than CP3 and that is incorrect, CP3 has a complete game but like people say about granger "he is on a team with less talent so his numbers are inflated" so goes CP3's scoring #'s although instead of pts it would just go to assits. I've always liked rondo and always thought he was good from when he was averaging almost a trip dub in kentuckey but the kid needs to keep his mouth shut.

Chris Paul only gets the stats he gets because he has the ball in his hands all the time.

Rondo gets the stats he gets because he has 2 Top-15 players (in the league) on his team, and one top-30 player.

Just STFU and let your game do the talking. Go out, get 20-8-12 and everyone will say "you outplayed the other guy", rather then talking **** about someone else and he schools you out there.

It's like saying Lebron James is going to get a huge payday because of that body he has... Yeah, CP3 is a PG so he gets the ball all the times. And he uses it well to boost his stats. Lebron plays very well because of his body, he can be physical because he is physically "better" than everyone

Paul outplayed Rondo on Sunday night, but the Celtics beat the New Orleans Hornets 97-87 anyway as Boston improved to 4-0 behind Paul Pierce's 27 points. After the game, Paul pursued Rondo toward the Celtics' locker room and had to be blocked by Boston assistant coaches.

Rondo had even less to say on the matter, which seemed to stem from a second-quarter incident when the two got tangled up under the basket after Ray Allen's 3-pointer. Referees stepped between them as words were exchanged and the players were assessed matching technical fouls

Rondo is solid in every aspect of his game except two categories; shooting and maturity. Both will come in time, Rondo is young, he has a bright future ahead of him, not to mention a blessed present playing with three future HOFers.

As far as starting for other teams go:
Rondo>everyone who is not named: Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Chauncey Billups, Tony Parker, Devin Harris and Jason Kidd...

Yes I think he's better than Nash, Rose, Calderon, Nelson, etc... he may not fit into their system (maybe Bulls), which is why they may pass on him, but overall he is better than alot of other PGs.

Rondo doesn't try to win?

You can argue that Rondo is a better rebounder. I actually believe Rondo has better court vision than Paul...

Rondo never said he was better than Chris Paul. He told Perkins "Chris Paul has the stats that he has because he has the ball in his hands all game."

I find it more shocking that Perkins actually told this to the media.:facepalm:

That's my thought. You got a young kid with loads of potential and has helped the team attain a championship. Just as the controversy around him was slowing down and just before his deadline to sign an extension, you give the media a reason to bother your teammate? Very poor decision making by Perkins.

Overall, Rondo is better than Nash, the only thing Nash has on him is shooting, plus he wouldn't be a better fit on the Celtics. Nash is 35 and his defense would be a liability for this Celtics team. The Celts don't need Nash's 15-20pts and Rondo is becoming a better playmaker so he can produce those 8-11asts on any given night.

your post makes no sense. Didnt rondo average about a triple double in play offs..without KG???? and shut up with the Career stats, if u watch and understand basketball u will see rondo gettin better and better u ignorant piece of **** Rondo has a tougher job of makin sure that all that talent around him gets involved and every1 stays sharp and the ball is outta of his hands so much from 3 HOF demanding the ball which equals less assist

LMAO. OK noob get more than 10 post and come talk to me. What your saying makes no sense. Career stats basically outline how well a player is playing over their career. So he averaged a triple double in the playoffs without KG. He played one helluva series against the Bulls, and he is shaping into a great point guard. But your not reading what this thread is about you ***. This thread is basically talking about how Perkins said Rondo was better than Paul. All I'm saying is Paul is better than Rondo right now. So before you call people names, realize that you actually need to read posts before you bash anyone on it.

And for the lack of words, your basically an idiot that gives Celtic fans a bad name. If he has to get the big three more involved in the game, that would translate to less assists. How the hell does that make sense. Last time I checked, if you get people involved, your passing them the ball, which means most of the time you are getting assists. Pathetic loser.

Rondo is nowhere near the star caliber of a Chris Paul. They came in the league one year apart and Chris Paul has taken a band of nobodies to 54 and 49 wins, and the 49 wins was with a starting lineup (in particular Tyson Chandler) decimated by injuries. He also took a garbage team out the cellar and improved them from 18-38 wins in the toughest division in basketball.

Rondo had his chance to make a splash in a significantly weaker Eastern Conference with a band of nobodies that included the extremely underrated Al Jefferson and solid Ryan Gomes (that team in my opinion were more talented than any Hornets team CP3 played on), but took them to the cellar. It was not until he got those three future hall of famers that Rondo was even mentioned.

It is easy when you go into a game where they other team probably has you ranked 3rd or 4th on the priority list as far as defensive gameplan is concerned. CP3 enters the game as the defenses 1st-5th priority.

Nice try, but no.

If Hinrich was their PG, he'd be coming off the bench. He's not even a starter on his own team. Hell, Rose would be the fifth option on this Celtics team (by the way, Rondo's the fourth option IMO). Even Paul would be 4th, MAYBE 3rd option on this team.
