Rondo played incredible down the stretch, but he made one critical mistake.

On our last possession, he picked up his dribble, anticipating that Pierce was going to come off the screen clean.  I know Shumpert was guarding him, but if you're Rondo, you keep that dribble alive.

What if Pierce doesn't come off (which is what happened)?  What do you do now?  You've got a great defender who's taller than you, and its unlikely any teammates are coming to get the ball.  Oh, I almost forgot, you have no timeouts.

Again, great game for Rajon, but that decision might have cost us a chance to tie the game.

Solid triple double. Again. It's not Rondo. Period. Blame Pierce all you want.

Basically what Rondo should've done was clone himself so he could cleanly catch his own pass.

That's what really cost us the game.

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.

That's not a mistake or a bad decision. That's execution. You can't lose a game on the final possession, unless you blow an open layup or something like that.

Rondo's mistake was passing ball to Pierce at all.  Pierce was playing like hot garbage.

I would have rather seen Rondo take the 3 himself (and yes, I realize it likely wouldn't have gone in).  At least we would have gotten a shot.

I kinda wanted Rondo to take the shot as well. But this thread would have gone to 30 pages in a minute if he had taken it and missed...

Rondo did not play a bad game tonight against tje Knicks but he made some mistakes that took points off the board. Sadly Pierce and KG cannot keep up with Rondo. So I think Rondo and KG  need  to be traded to kick start the rebuilding process. After  last years miraculous run to Game Seven of the ECF, I knew that we had milked the Pierce, Garnett, Ray Allen,  and Rondo era.
The NBA is a very stupid, corrupt, and unethical league

Im bashing Rondo tonight for putting a triple double and not making enough plays to win the game.

Once again, I hope he gets traded already, quickly, ASAP. He does not deserve the treatment some, if not majority of the fans give him. Despite a monster game, its still somehow his fault.

Trade hin to a place where he'll be appreciated.

I don't get it. Are you happy that Rondo tore his ACL and is out for the season?

There is obviously a substantial number of posters here on this blog that are seriously sick in the head.

It really is beyond sick if this is what the poster meant.
