our defense will probably improve a bit, and maybe our shooting a little...also, this might force some of our role players into more appropriate roles (especially jet). however, i will say this: playoff rondo is a monster. he's a bit unfocused during the regular season (and, honestly, i'm pretty sure he is usually playing with serious injuries, as KG alluded to in his interview today), but come playoff time, rondo is a beast. losing him is going to hurt, big-time if we make the playoffs. not to say that these guys can't do some damage (they can, if they get their game going), but come april/may/june, there are only a few players i'd want more than rondo on my team.
