? no reason for the sarcasm, he would have easily gotten the 20 points if it wasn't for a couple of easy layup misses. Would have been the first 20/20/15 game ever (at least since 85)

He's a top 10 PG... hustlenomics just acts like he's the best... Is Corey a hater too? He agrees that Rondo is around that area
He's more than a top 10 PG. I've seen people say Lowry, Irving, Parker, Nash, D-Will say they're clearly better

Rose and Paul are in a elite class, Westy is probably 3rd. From D-Will, Nash, Rondo and Parker, Rondo is mixed somewhere in between there. At worst 6th best PG, probably 4th if you ask me. Shut down Deron the other night, Nash is a better shooter, but he can't attack the rim like Rondo and what good is it if he isn't scoring points? Rondo as 3rd/4th option is averaging more than Nash who should be at worst the 2nd option.

Call me a homer, meh Bulls fans drooled over Rose when he was was fringe top 5 2 years ago the same way

03-04-2012, 07:15 PM
Rose, Paul, Deron, Westbrook, Nash, Parker are all better

Not to mention that Wall, Irving, Rubio are getting better and better

I just dont see him as THAT good.. He's a great rebounder but he will put up these types of games once in a while and then put up something like 12, 8 for a number of games. He's not a top 5 pg nor is he very consistent

thekmp211
03-04-2012, 07:25 PM
exactly like j kidd. great all around game but no outside jump shot

two KEY differences that imo will make or break rondo's career.

3 point shooting and free throw shooting. kidd managed to develop into a great ft shooter and an acceptable 3 point shooter (pre mavericks). he (rondo) is never going to be a great pure shooter, so he needs to work on these set plays where he can lock in mechanics and make improvements.

i love rondo, he's definitely a top 10 pg and it's hard to go much further than that simply because the position is so loaded. he will not imo though ever be the 1/2 guy on a contender without making these minimal additions to his offensive game. obviously becoming a better shooter overall is preferable, but if rondo can get his ft% above 80 and his 3 pt % somewhere in the low 30's, it will help his game so, so SO much.

he's gotta get his ft shooting and spot up 3 point shooting up to acceptable levels, at the very minimum. sadly i am also skeptical. still a great player as is. but he can be so much more.

no one just wants him gone. it's a question of what is he worth exactly? games like this are amazing, one of a kind, but he will do things and put together stretches that aren't acceptable for a guy as good as he clearly is. the "anti" rondo camp doesn't want the franchise to splurge on a franchise level contract for a sub-franchise level player. when you see a night like tonight though, it makes you want to hold on to him and hope he figures it all out. even w his mercurial nature and iffy jumper he brings so much to the table.

signing the wrong guy to the wrong contract can kill a team for years, and i think that's what most celtics fans fear when they voice their concerns with re-signing rondo.

Rondo has a rather reasonable long-term contract. Resigning him is not an issue, quite a ways to go.

2011/2012- $10,000,000
2012/2013- $11,000,000
2013/2014- $12,000,000
2014/2015- $13,000,000

...the fact that those numbers are so even makes me question their validity. I've never used HoopsHype before, so I guess for all I know that could be BS. I'm pretty sure the years are accurate, though.

true, but starting next season the team is at a cross-roads with how to approach him. do you go forward assuming you have 1 of 2 or 3 essential core guys in rondo? or not? and if you chose the former, you need to make moves in the interim with the looming extension as a consideration every time.

edit: edit response to your edit haha -- you are absolutely right. they locked him up after his first serious season, the year KG went down, but before 2010 when he made another jump and went buckwild in the playoffs. great signing by ainge.

yeah i don't really see the point in that. moving rondo has to improve the present or the future. don't really see those guys doing either even with their solid play this year. it's hard to imagine a realistic trade involving rondo which is part of the problem.

Well literally speaking it was one game, and amazing one game but one game nonetheless. And I'm not taking anything away from it but one game shouldn't be your measuring stick for ranking a player in comparison to his peers. Cp3, D-will, Rose, Westy are CLEARY better.

At age 25 Ronda has played in more significant, notewothy and pressure-packed games then all those guys combined, save Tony Parker.
Heck half of 'em haven't even played a Conference Final game, much less 13 games in the NBA Finals, where every possession matters and is scrutized accordingly.

Naw don't judge the game based on if they should trade Rondo or not... His play and talent isn't in question with the Celtics it's his attitude and ability to take criticism. Supposedly last year during the miami series when the coaching staff was reviewing tape with Rondo and pointed out some of the mistakes he made he not only made a scene but he also threw a water bottle at one of the members of the coaching staff (I can believe it since I seen him already throw a ball at a ref this year).

I also saw him during last years playoffs when he busted up his arm CLEARLY refuse to go in a huddle with the rest of the team and listen to Doc Rivers. His talent is undeniable but his attitude is the problem/reason they are thinking of trading him.

I usually dont give Rondo his dues, but this was the most impressive performance by a PG yesterday, and I mean you DW.

Definitely a great stat line and game by Rondo. The celtics would be crazy to trade a quality PG like him.

That is a ridiculous game...

Very impressive.

The last time according to Elias a player had at least 17 in each category was Magic Johnson!


And Magic's 6'9" which makes the rebounding stat understandable. Rondo is nowhere near that!


Very very impressive...


Probably more impressive than D Will's 57 against the Bobcats.

1) Ainge talks trade with any other team.
2) The first name the other team brings up is Rondo.
hence, the Celtics are...obviously...trying to trade Rondo.

Responsible journalism dead.

Good for Rondo, the question is can he do this CONSISTENTLY. There's a reason why ppl were spreading all these trade rumors; b/c after he drops a trip dub, he goes MIA for the next few days.

Also, let's not forget the Knicks aren't exactly a defensive juggernaut.

But hey, for today, it's Rondo's day. :shrug:

Kidd was not a good 3pt shooter early on, that is fact. He developed that way later in his career.

Great game by Rondo but he should have 18, 20, 16 instead of 17....he pushed off on Lin for a big no call. Dude should have fouled out the way he was hand checking Lin most of the game.

Congrats to Rondo. As for the rest of the Celtics not so much...No way in hell your pg should lead the team in rebounds, no way in hell he should have to do all of that and the Celtics still almost lose...

There is a member on here claiming that Kyrie Irving is a better player. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.

Rondo is an amazing player.

Rajon Rondo did something Sunday that no N.B.A. player had done in more than two decades. His triple-double of 18 points, 17 rebounds and 20 assists not only helped the Celtics beat the Knicks, 115-111, in overtime, but it also thrust him into the rarefied company of the Hall of Fame point guard Magic Johnson.

Rondo’s tour de force came against the backdrop of numerous trade rumors during the last week as the Celtics wrestle with the decision to break up the team, which is a mere two games over .500 and in seventh place in the Eastern Conference. He seems to respond well in such situations.

“I think I’ve been playing better since the trade rumors, so keep them going,” Rondo said after the game in a television interview.

Those are some crazy stats. Although I may say he "Stat pads" his assist sometimes. Nonetheless crazy numbers for a little guy.
