couple games back the celtics were getting blown out by DET and rondo was still in with no time left in the 4th down 20. when he finally got his 10th assist jason terry & crew were celebrating... really?

Who cares. I don't care. I'd rather he go ham try to stuff his staff sheet in garbage time than sit on the bench and let me watch backups. . .

If Pistons care, they should play harder.

It's cause he's Asian.

Haralabob was wailing on him on twitter during it, but that's all I've seen. I'm guessing part of the reason is that not many people are watching garbage time of Det/Bos.

Cause he's doing it for all the people that own him in fantasy leagues.

lol.

from the det boston game:

Haralabos Voulgaris ‏@haralabob

Rondo with a great steal, and an absolutely braindead assist whore pass.

Biggest whore in history RT @EricWitz: @haralabob Rondo has to lead the league in "braindead assist whore passes" right? Any close second?

Watching this Celts game is really entertaining, Rondo cares not about winning, he's looking for dimes.

Pretty sure the streak is more important to Rondo. Don't think its even close.

I've watched him turn the ball over 4 times if you count shot clock violations bc he's refused to shoot.

When a guy has a wide open layup with 1.5 seconds left and passes it back to nobody, i question what his goals are.

Na Rondo doesn't care about the streak. He's just in there down 20 with 1.5 mins left bc he's looking to get a run in

No doubt in my mind that if Rondo was stuck on 9 right now, they'd be intentionally fouling. To get a few more possessions in.

People mocked Andre Blatche and Ricky Davis for trying to get triple doubles late, this is just as bad if not worse IMO.

The other issue I have with the "assist streak" is that its not even accurate, his assist #s are padded. The whole thing is a farce.

its pretty bush league to stay in a game down 20 with 2 mins left so you can get the stat.

Doc is having to manage a petulant moody player, he's in a no-win situation. He takes him out and Rondo would have pouted.

Why did nobody bash on Cal Ripken JR for chasing his record? He was garbage for years.

To me it just shows a lack of understanding of statistics. Its not entirely Rondo's fault, its our society and its affinity for completely arbitrary stats. I understand SINGLE Game situations but streak stats are in no way relevant. Just play the game and the numbers that matter will follow. Its a minuscule difference anyways so who the **** cares.

Baseball is different. I dont know jack **** about the sport but I know people love milestones alot more in it.

Did anyone even know he did this? This is the first I've heard of it. At least he didn't get his own rebound off of his own rim.

I knew, but I was watching the Pistons **** on the celtics in between getting shat upon by the magic before and after that game. (I just don't that.)

If anyone has league pass broadband or DVRs games or whatever, check out the play in tonight's Bos vs Orlando game with about 5:10 left in the 4th.
Boston are down 6 with 5 minutes left and get a steal and Rondo gets way out in front on the break - he probably could've gotten the layup before a defender even got as far back as the three point line - but he turns and waits for another Celtic so that he can get the assist, only the trailing man has defenders behind him and gets blocked. No points.

So funny. Just the worst stat padding you'll ever see.

Because he's being Rajon Rondo. He's not record chasing...

Who cares anyway? Rondo is having a great year.

Because everyone likes him. You never see him show any kind of emotion on the court, he'll break your ankles and sink a circus lay-up, then act like nothing happened. Now if someone like LeBron did this, it'd be all over ESPN and everyone will say how self-centered and egotistical he is.

Well at the end of the day (IMO only) he's an mvp candidate and the best player on his team this year; he can do what he wants as long as Boston wins. I love what this kid is doing out there in boston, and he'll only get better. My fantasy team is also 1st because of him.

I don't even know what arbitrary record he is chasing. But I think people are not making a big deal of it because he is passing, and passing is seen as being unselfish. If he was trying to score in garbage time for stats/records, he would get a lot more flack

2 answers:

1. Because no one saw Boston/Detroit.

2. Because people are hypocrites and will choose to judge who they want however they want:

That fastbreak play against Orl. was funny though. Good thing they go the win and didn't lose by 1 or 2 points or this definitely would have been talked about.
