Around the NBA / Re: RONDO first game with Dallas about to Start

Classic Rondo... gets surrounded with hall of fame talent, but he's still losing to the Spurs C-Team.  Close to getting a triple double, though.

Well Dirk is having an awful night. Imagine if the real Spurs were playing, but we must remember that Pop has his squad prepared top to bottom.

DKC Draft / Re: DKC League: Q1 Voting Very Soon! Watch Inboxes!

I'll take a gander and say that Kyrie and Deng were the centerpieces of the return package.

I wish HP would of held out for DMC.

I don't think HP had much leverage to make that move. Miami's not in an advantageous position to retain LeBron, and they already came out and declared he's ready to be moved.

Anyway, who else is here is watching Rondo's debut with the Mavs? Considering this is his first game adjusting to a brand new team in the middle of the season, the Mavs have looked really good. I've maintained that Dallas is a perfect landing spot for Rondo, and it seems like both the team and the player will benefit greatly from the trade.

Well, I could have kept Lebron and potentially added a third 'star', and it's not like Cleveland or many other teams are in position to sign him this summer, but I felt moving him now to begin my rebuild in the end was the best option.

Brookyln traded us Thornton.  They cannot take him back in a trade by rule.

I think Rondo's defensive effort has been the exact same. He just has Tyson Chandler standing behind him now instead of Sullinger, Olynyk, Bass.
Me too.

I don't know. I'm seeing an effort change not necessarily defensive efficiency or anything. He HARDLY EVER tried fighting through screens in Boston; tonight he's much more active and trying to get around them.

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.

This sounds familiar though (from a Mavs game thread),

Rondo effect. He doesn't push the ball like Nelson did in half courts sets. Nelson would at least drive the ball and dump it off. Rondo is basically passing the ball so whoever can do an ISO play :-/

The D is sagging off on him because if he drives and get fouled he will have to shoot FTs which he sucks at.
