I HAVE seen enough to disagree with LarBird33 Dallas will be a much better team once these guys understand that when Rondo has the ball he is always in attack mode and he can pass the ball to you wherever you are, and from anywhere on the court. They have robbed him off many assists tonight because they are just surprised by his passes.I have seen enough to agree with LarBird33. Dallas was the best offensive team in the league and Rondo isnt' going to move the needle much. THey are currently losing to the Spurs exhausted bench members a day after San Antonio's overtime game.
Dirk 2-11, Parsons 5-14.
... Dat spacing
WHile everyone is ga-ga over Rondo's stats, note that they are losing to San Antonio's bench warmers... and the Mavericks, previously the league's high scoring most efficient team, is shooting 37% with Rondo at the helm.
Let's see what happens in the 4th quarter if they leave Rondo out there.
Long term, I think Rondo should bring enough to the table to make up for his deficiencies. But Dallas will need to adapt to him.
