I'm just curious to see if anyone can come up with an NBA point guard in the history of the game who was an inferior shooter? The guys shoots free throws at a 54% clip. This is an abysmal rate for a middle school pg, let alone a professional athlete.

He shoots 40% from the field, 36% from 3, and 92% from the line. :confused:

Chalmers is not nearly as bad as some of the Heat fans make him out to be.

He's still young and im sure he can raise his shooting percentage with alot of practice.

Maybe the worst free throw % shooter, but his in game shot has much improved this year.

i think rondo just turned 25. i'm pretty sure he can continue to improve his shot. i dont think he'll ever be ray allen or reggie miller in terms of shooting but i think he can reach the decent/adequate shooter.

he reminds me a lot of tony parker and his progression as a shooter. i think he'll just make gradual improvements over the years.

Rondo's game isnt jumpers, but isnt he good at laying it up?

westbrook isnt good at jumpers either but somehow he's still an elite pg, so...whatever

yet not one person in the nba would trade rose for rajon....the man cant shoot stop defending him life he is your wife. if you give a man ten feet of space anytime theyre 16-24 ft. in the nba then you have a shooting problem.

NO the Celtics have a championship. If there was five rondo's that won a championship i didnt see it. He was the fifth best player on that championship and you know it. Also, thanks for proving he cant shoot with this dumb response.

As far as free throw shooting, most likely. However, although he is not a very good shooter from mid-range he has improved a LOT in this area over the past season.

no he is pointing out the fact that a GUARD shoots less than 55% from FREE THROW. That is TERRIBLE.

who gives a s-t? Honestly. Boston needs him for his awesome game management and ball distribution. I don't care what his shooting percentage is and I'm sure alot more celtic fans would tell you the same. Not all point guards are going to shoot the lights out.

Being that Rondo is a career 49.0% FG shooter (ties him for #166 all-time, ahead of Steve Nash #168 and Walt Frazier #167) and is shooting 50.6% this season, he's far from it (and he doesn't just shoot layups obviously). He might be one of the worst free throw shooters ever at PG though.

Noone gives a flying f-k! and it is hating on rondo because he causes havoc in just about every game with his defense and passing. and IMO he is in the top 5 of pg's regardless of what you so called PSD "experts" say, or what his shooting percentage is. So yeah... STOP HATING! :p

I don't get all this 'typical of a Bulls fan to make this thread'. It's basketball, we're all fans of the sport, and Rondo is a fairly awful shooter in comparison to most point guards in the NBA. That's a legitimate assessment whether it be from a Bulls, Heat, Sixers, Knicks, Pacers, Bucks, Clippers, Lakers, Celtics, Kings, Blazers, Timberwolves, Mavericks, Spurs, Thunder, Raptors, Nets, Bobcats, Hawks, Cavaliers, Nuggets, Magic, Suns, Jazz, Wizards, Hornets, Grizzlies, Warriors, Rockets or Pistons fan.

Rose can't even figure out how to throw up signs correctly....wow. He probably couldn't even get into the school of hard knocks with his score!!!

Rondo is not the worst shooting point guard of all time....smush Parker, Eric snow, acarter, etc.

And I wonder what kind of excuse y'all rose fans are going to give when dirk wins the MVP?

Trust me...I don't do that. I'm pissing off Bulls fans with my level headed realization that LeBron's the MVP. I love Rose and hope he wins it, but I can't see LeBron not being the MVP.

But with all of the unwarranted, jealous (you may not be jealous for now, I see you are likely a Celtics fan) hatred of the Heat, you never know.

It does look ridiculous. But he can still burn guys guarding him, even with all that space... the damn guy is just so quick. If he works on his shot, look out. then the defense can't give him all that room, but then he could just blow by guys.

lordy there are some sensitive people around here. as far as rondo, he does exactly what the celts need him to do. distribute the ball and play defense. some pg's can assist the **** out of the ball. some can score. and some play defense. some...even do a little bit of each. rondo doesn't have to be like anyone else. he's pretty good just being rondo.

Yes, Rondo is not a good shooter. Yes, Rondo is a terrible FT shooter. The point?

That's like me making a thread about how Dwight Howard isn't a good FT shooter. Every basketball fan knows this, there's no point in bringing it up. So the only reason of you sitting down at your computer, burping out loud from your 908464 calerie milkshake and typing this thread up on your cheeto-stained fingers is to hate.

As terrible as a shooter Rondo is, he's still one of the best point guards in this league, and he's crucial to the success of the Celtics right now. There's no arguing that.
