Celtics aren't willing to let Rondo go without getting Shumpert. Knicks not willing to let Shumpert go. Doesn't seem like it will happen.

Anyone who thinks Rondo is a top five PG in the league is drunk. It's why the Celtics have been trying to trade him for a while. He's severely overrated.

How much better has the Celtics offense been with the mighty Rondo on the floor for the last three years? .5 points. He makes them half a point better. This negligible increase is even more hilariously bad when you consider how bad the Celtics are at offense.

Lakers need to get on this. offer a gasol/nash/blake and multiple first round picks package for Rondo/Green/bass.

gasol and humprhies coming off the books would save boston 31 million going into 2014. best case scenario Gasol plays like an all-star with his new knees in a system build around him; you flip him for lousy expirings to a team looking to contend for more first round picks before the trade deadline. boston could flip him to the warriors for andris biedrins richard jefferson and two or three first round picks. Warriors make a serious push for the west and Boston is sitting on nearly a dozen first round picks (their own, Brooklyns, LAs and Golden States). Boston could then flip Nash back to Phoenix for Gortats expiring and a pick, maybe one of the ones Los Angeles gave them.

06-28-2013, 02:22 AM

Meh, he does a lot of other things better than most point guards too. Last 3 years he's averaged at least 11 apg and around 2 spg. Efficient scorer from the field despite his lack of shooting ability.

Plus he's arguably the best rebounder for a pg in the NBA. Averaged 6 rpg before getting hurt last year.

14 ppg, 11 apg, 6 rpg, and 2 spg is pretty impressive

lt doesn't matter that he has a limited jumper. What we need is a playmaker. Everyone on our team is awful at creating their own shot. Even Melo honestly. He's not as good 1one1 as he used to be. Our offense was dead in the playoffs because of zero ball movement. Rondo can do exactly for us what he did in boston. Make shots easy for everyone. Melo, tyson, Amare JR assuming he resigns, our whole bench etc. needs a real PG that has some damn court vision

Amare's got 2 years left (there's no way he opts out). If they gave up Shump (which I absolutely would) and picks I would shoot for Courtney Lee instead of Bass and maybe a 2nd rounder.



Not sure why the C's want Shumpert since the have Bradley and they are pretty similar. Makes me question validity although Shump is the Knicks most desirable, affordable player.

lts because we have zero other trade chips or draft picks. We'd have to center it around shumpert because we have nothing else really. They are in rebuild mode and only want young players. He's the only one really lol. Other than the guy we just drafted

1) Rondo indeed is not a top 5 PG.

2) Rondo indeed makes his team much better than just about every PG in the NBA.

- You compare the PPG stats with and without Rondo. How many games are those? How many games did the Celtics play without Rondo?

- Making everybody better does not mean making everybody score more points. Rondo allows his team to get easy buckets, really easy buckets with his ability to find cutters and hit the open man in the chest or a running man in stride every time. That doesn't mean they score more, it means they score more efficiently.

Half court teams don't shoot as many jumpers as fast paced teams do because naturally they run a half court set more times than not and don't look to run too often. This leads to less shot attempts and makes for the team.

A Rondo led Celtics team averaging 95 PPG and an Avery Bradley led Celtics team averaging 95 pgg, you would say that Avery Bradley affects his team just as much as Rondo, correct? Now what if I told you Rondo's team only takes 40 shots per game yet Bradley's team takes 50?

I actually disagree. I think the Knicks showed they are a perimeter oriented ballclub last season, and I think Rondo would drive and kick all day and night in NY. I think he could be the piece to put the Knicks over the top if he is healthy and the same player, big if

Eh I can't comment shump is my favorite player besides melo.. Rondo is trouble, locker room cancer but he is very talented. There's a real second option. And for the people saying he will help amare. Is rondo a doctor? Amare can't stay on the court. When he's there he's pretty solid considering he has a 96 year old man knees

If it has legs, frankly, the Knicks should do something like this

Trade Melo to SAC for Evans, J THompson, Filler (I THomas?) and 2014, 2016 Unprotected #1.

Move 2016 and Felton to Boston for Rondo, Filler (Novak + Camby).

Pray Amare is healthy. Let JR walk.

Hardaway
Shumpert
Rondo
Evans
Amare
Chandler
J. Thompson
++Filler

That would be one hell of perimeter defensive team that can get up-n-down the Court. Suspect three ball shooting but you can get one/two/three of those on the cheap in FA. Shawne Williams???

Thompson and Chandler are nice back stop guys. A little weak rebounding.

Rondo is a top 5-10 PG (people rank him all over the place). Felton isn't top 15, and most likely bottom 10. It's a terrible trade and you're being a homer.

I really see this deal going down IF the Celtics truly dont care who they trade Rondo to. They didnt care about Garnett or Pierce going in the division, so I dont see why this would matter to Boston. Rondo makes NY better than Brooklyn btw

This was feasible because they don't expect Garnett and Pierce to be in the NBA in 3 years or less. By the time they are done rebuilding brooklyn will be in rebuilding mode. Rondo to NY doesn't make sense because he has a full career ahead of him.

Anyone who thinks Rondo is a top five PG in the league is drunk. It's why the Celtics have been trying to trade him for a while. He's severely overrated.

How much better has the Celtics offense been with the mighty Rondo on the floor for the last three years? .5 points. He makes them half a point better. This negligible increase is even more hilariously bad when you consider how bad the Celtics are at offense.

Yet they've been to the Finals twice, and were a game away from the Finals in 2012. I guess you would prefer Russell Westbrook..

If NY fans don't like this deal and NYK mgmt can't figure to get Rondo in b/c of Shumpert - ya'll idiots.

He's a pass first pg that fills up the statsheet. Thats what you need with players like Melo and Amare and Chandler.

Man, Boston is trading within the conference so he can make Miami's run a lot harder lol

did Ainge hit his hear or something dealing his best players to division rivals? It was bad enough to send PP and KG to BKN but then to take back Wallace and his THIRTY MILLION contract was insane. Now willing to deal Rondo to NY and not request Shumpert? Guess he wants to lose his job

It makes sense for Boston. They know they have to get real bad to get real good again. Rondo is just going to keep them in the 8 seed mix for playoffs by himself. They are probably going to tank hard for the draft next season. Ainge seems to enjoy making splashes for other teams and creating rivalries when he sends his guys outta town - and he's obviously not scared to trade within the divison. I would trade Shump and whatever pick we can offer + salary filler.

So what happens when the Celtics play Philly? well hopefully the celtics trade rondo for a couple future first rounders and we can really battle philly for last place. But seriously tho 10 first round draft picks all unprotected in 6 years, possibly more if rondos traded, could be a nice rebuild or the end of danny ainge.

I won't disagree with him being a bad offensive player (his shooting does suck), but outside CP3, Parker, Westbrook and Rose, I can't see anyone else ahead of him.

It seems like there's something else at play here. Most everyone here agrees that it would be crazy not to trade Shumpert for Rando. I think that's obvious. Rondo is incredible and I think he could potentially be the top PG in the NBA if he had the right attitude.

I wonder what else is included in a proposed deal, because there's no way those salaries matchup, right?

Edit: After looking, I can't see any source that is mentioning this, and it looks like the tweet isn't there either. Plus it would be odd for the Celtics to improve both the Nets and the Knicks.

Rockice_8
06-28-2013, 11:40 AM
I understand why he trade PP and KG to the Nets cause they aren't going to be around when the C's are good again and won't be standing in their way.

Rondo to the Knicks on the other hand seems a little crazy. He's still going to be around for awhile longer so why trade him within the division? Rondo also still has value even with the injury so I'm sure they can find other takers. I don't see this one happening but who knows.

They're both better than Rondo and can actually carry a team on offense.

Rondo is a great facilitator, and a pretty good defender, but his offensive game outside of 5 feet from the rim is just garbage

and he can't hit a free throw

2011 looks to be a statistical outlier as other than his 12 games with the Nets in 10/11 he hasn't shot that bad since.

18+ ppg, 7+ apg and a PER of 20+
