Not saying we should be trading Rondo, just some constructive criticism. Luv rondo to death, and he is a superstar for sure

when he is not looking to attack, he does not draw double team like he used to. He is slowing the pace, everybody is standing around. When he gets to the paint, he does not even look at the rim...then kicks out to a contested jump shot.

He is not pushing the tempo either, killing any chance to create easy points. When JT/C.Lee is running the point, quick passes and much better pace.

Rondo needs to start to do all those things now.

???
I will say he was low on effort level and energy
but still plays a pretty decent game
Bech plays better
Starters miss a lot of road and not only because of rondo but
because Bass and KG playing slow too.
Even pp was slow on offense and better on rebounding

well next game please

Some people just can't take criticism towards a player they like.

For the most part, people around here to need to start differentiating between a bad stretch and a bad player.


And when you have a player like Rondo, who has been little short of epic in the playoffs. (Averaging almost a triple-double w/out KG 16.9/9.8/9.7 *2009*, the jason williams steal *2010*, Wade's Takedown *2011*, 76ers Game 7 *2012*, 43 Points vs. Miami *2012* 4 Triple Doubles in the Playoffs *2012*)

You got to call a thread like this after an 8-point win what it is, ridiculous.

I think we should just start Sullinger at all five positions.

Very true.

But there is a difference from saying "Rondo had a poor game" and threads like this that say we play better without him. The Celtics clearly don't, plus his two prior games (Hawks/Pacers) were good games!

Taking a look at the on/off stats its funny. We're better in every offensive category with Rondo on the court than off except rebounding, specifically offensive rebounding.

AKA Rondo is playing more of his time on the court without Sullinger than with him.

Except the OP clearly likes and respects rondos game. And except 95percent of celtics fans like rondo. Difference is some of us criticise him when he deserves it while others don't.

Its not that at all - but there's already 5 or 6 active threads about Rondo and there's no new insight or criticisms in any of them. And of course there's a few posters (I won't mention names because calling out is against the rules) that just don't like him and crap him at any chance.

Ainge had mentioned he expects Rondo to get paid 'star money.' On that subject, Rondo said, 'I'm making star money now, really. Its a pretty good living. I'll let my agent handle those terms.'

You have to be good before you can be great. Build a team instead of tearing it down.

The whole first unit played badly?  Bradley was great.  KG was his usual great.  Pierce was a little down.  Bass wasn't good at all and neither was Rondo.

I get how people can say, "hey wait until Rondo turns it on in the playoffs," but can you ever see Garnet taking off regular season games?  Is playing hard really too much to ask for from Rondo?

People have different opinions on things.

For example people blame Rondo for walking the ball up, the Rondo I see screams for the ball and tries to run more often than not. Overall the C's are very aggressive in transition and semi-transition. We're just not built to run.

Just differences of opinion based on watching the same season of the same player.
