The truth is... we don't need Rondo
« on: January 08, 2013, 10:02:14 AM »
Gambles too much on D, coasts at 50% of the regular season, 'style over substance' on offense, not the consistent leader every championship-caliber team needs.
Without him everything is more simple, fluid and effective. In one word: better.
I think a future trade should always involve Rondo, not Sullinger or Bradley.

Come one game. Everyone played their butt off and contributed big time. Pierce was a beast. You can't expect that every night without Rondo. So when the C's win this game or the Hawks.game 2 last year it just shows how ballsy this team is. We can still win without Rondo but in the long run we really need him.

Btw did you see Rondo against the Hawks on Saturday?

We definitely need Rondo, Pierce/KG can't carry the offense like they did last night every game anymore.

I created THIS THREAD last year saying we should trade Rondo because of his immaturity and emotion.  He is far too immature and emotional to be the leader of a title contender.  When the emotion is on and works, he is a superstar, but when the emotion is off he plays poorly, doesn't hustle, is very inconsistent, and finds himself often making stupid decisions (getting T'd up, and sometimes ejected or suspended).  In addition, Rondo also would net the greatest return given his ability, production, and contract.  Thus I'm all for trading Rondo, I just wouldn't move him just to move him, but if Boston could get back good value, I would be all for it.

Something like this 3 team trade would be good for me.

Boston gets Cousins, Robinson, Brooks
Sacramento gets Rondo, Gay, Melo
Memphis gets Evans, Salmons, Bass
2014 Pick 2 Draft 18th pick of 20
Sacramento Kings
Starters - Isaiah Thomas, Eric Gordon, Jimmy Butler, Dirk Nowitzki, Demarcus Cousins
Bench - Kendall Marshall, Michael Carter-Williams, Vince Carter, Wesley Johnson, Marcus Morris, Miles Plumlee, Nerlens Noel

So you want to trade a precieved locker room head case for cousins, a guy who is always one step away from an arrest warrent and such a locker room disaster that Sacramento is willing to deal him to get rid of the headache?

This is what i don't get, everyone wants to talk about how cousins makes you good for the next 10 years, and his issues are a non-factor, but if thats so, how come Sacramento can't run away from him fast enough?


Never mind that cousin's stupid off the court and locker room antics are so bad that it can't all be kept quite in SACRAMENTO for gods sake, you think the constant media pressure here is going to help with his crazy behind?
