Vintage Tommy fires up about Rondo, Owns Tanguay in process.

Some of you commented on this in the game thread but I thought it deserved a thread of its own. I just love watching tanguay squirm.

everyone loves downplaying rondo's ability. first it was "but he plays with 3 hall of famers" now its "oh anyone can do it"

then why hasnt anyone done it yet? oh, cuz its extremely difficult.

Good for Tommy.

Rondo is turning into a superstar in this league. A very rare type of superstar. A superstar that controls and dictates the game by running an offense and involving every other player in the team in the offensive flow and getting his team mates the best chance to succeed on the court as individuals and as a team. His passing on a night in and night out basis is something that hasn't been seen in the league since Stockton and Magic.

Because of Bradley's injury, he is once again in charge of taking the major responsibility of on the ball pressure and attempting to initialize the team's defense while simultaneously running the offense. This is an exhaustive thing to do night in and night out. Add to that he is playing half his minutes with players that are still unsure of themselves in the offense, missing defensive assignments, have a lack of confidence with the system or are just playing passively and the fact this streak has endured and that the Celtics are still playing winning ball only goes to show what a spectacular player Rajon Rondo really is.

As Tommy said in that piece, if you griping about the streak, you are just a Rondo detractor and have been criticizing him from day one because you've probably been spouting off about all the things he can't do perfectly instead of focusing on all the things he does unbelievably well.

If there is something that can drive rondo to attack the other team's D night in and night out, it can only be a good thing.

And if he ends up toppling the record of a legend in the process then it is all good by me.

We still havent seen "Beast Rondo" be unleashed this year, but he is definitely playing great, consistent ball at the moment.

i love how rondo can switch on to beast mode. He preserves beast mode for the playoffs for the most part.

I really don't like him fishing for assists though. It's going to cost us a game eventually.

That crap where he tried to hand it back to Bass when he had an open lay up was just pure garbage.
He had 10 assists, why mess around with crap like that.
And don't say that he was trying to get Bass involved- he was trying to get another assist.

The stat padding is bogus.
I just can't wait till this streak is over because he's giving up many easy shots.

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

well said agree he's been amazing the only thing you could knock him on before was he can't hit a jumper well he's doing it now

Rule #374 - Real life Tommy Points must only be given by Tommy or occasionally Gorman can suggest a Tommy Point for approval by Tommy.

My only complaint with the streak is that it may be leading him to create more turnovers.  His Asst/T.O. ratio is still excellent though.

I feel bad when Tommy isn't with Gorman, Scal (lovin him) or even Donnie Wahlberg and has to be put with tanguay, donnie and don't even bring up felger.   As the Boston fan base is considered pretty intelligent why do we put up with tv "personalities" like that?

Anyone remember Tommy as a coach?  He  :-X out more basketball knowledge every morning than those guys put together.  I don't care if its against the rules, tp for tommy.

I'm pretty sure they were quick to put someone in Tommy's ear with a "PLEASE don't go off on him" before he really exploded  ;D

Yes, Tommy Heinsohn is a homer but at least he tells it like it is and he is totally right here. I mean, being good makes you bad?! Last time I checked, the NBA was a lot about breaking records, teamwise and personal. If that is the measuring stick, then all Magic's records and all Bird's records are worthless. Same with Jordan. Wilt. Russ. Stockton. The Queen. Kobe. Oscar. And so on and so forth... Rajon's already got games that can compare to the very finest in basketball. But if those games are worthless and useless, then the rest of those guys (and their biggest games) are, too.

Seriously: "GO HOME, PEOPLE!"

Fire Donny!  Tanguay is a twit.   Good for Tommy!  Tommy point for Tommy!

Anyone who has assist records has good players with them as it is a two part stat really with a passer and shooter.  So the playing with hall of famers don't wash with me.  Magic had hall of famers and Stockton had a hall of famer.
