highest fg%, more shot attempts than CP3, and leads the league in assists and assists per game.

Guards who play more than 20 MPG, and shoot over .500 from the field. There's 7 of them.

d-wade is shooting 15% from 3pt, where rondo is shooting 33%... rondo is attempting about twice as many 3's per game as wade.

Psh, they'll have to throw in a fringe player as well. Maybe Bosh or something.

1) Small sample size
2) Wade is an awful 3-Point shooter
3) 33% is still pretty bad
4) I love Rondo, and wanted at least one positive point

And yet we're 6-5.  And yet the Clippers are 8-2.

Small sample size in the standings.  Small sample size in the stats.  Long season ahead.

I'm sure rondo wouldn't mind lobbing it to Blake griffin and deandre Jordan, kicking to Caron butler and a bench deeper then ours.

Just when I manage to forget how amazing and ridiculous Kobe Bryant is...

YOU PULL ME BACK IN!

3) 33% is still pretty bad


33% shooting from three isn't "pretty bad." Since it generates around the same point per shot as a player hitting 50% of his two point shots, I'd say shooting 33% from three is "acceptable," especially for a previously non-shooter like Rondo. 

Small sample size so far, but Rondo's improvement on non-layup shooting tins year has been remarkable. If he could only get better at the 15 footer when everyone else is standing around and the ref hands him the ball.

  The league average is probably 34%-35%, so I'd agree that "pretty bad" doesn't apply.

Rondo taking only 1.5 3s a game doesn't bother me. Especially as usually its either a desparation end of shot clock shot, or a end of the quarter shot he throws up there.

If he starts taking them in more situations than that I'll get annoyed with him. Its not his shot.
