I don't know about trading Rondo even though I'm not one of his biggest fans. I just wished the guy would adjust his play a bit, that's all. While Rondo's been a Celtics, they've been their most efficiently offensively in the the two years Rondo Ball wasn't as prevalent. In 2008, he only averaged 30 minutes a game and he [dang] didn't spend that time pounding the ball like he does now. The following year his minutes increased to 33 and Rondo Ball still hadn't fully developed. More than that, having ball movement, passing the ball up the court, creating with multiple ball handlers and playmakers is just more fun to watch for me.
Even though Rondo's shooting has improved dramatically, teams still don't respect it. As such, his defender closes down driving lanes repeatedly. There's no room in the middle of the court because Rondo's man doesn't respect his jumpshot. That can really hamper an offense.
