I imagine Ray Allen is giddy right now... the tail end of this season could completely vindicate him and prove him right about Rajon.
I've argued for a while that Boston's offense was built around rondos' weaknesses. The guy couldn't shoot so defenders slacked off him... Thus we needed guys like bass and kg to linger around the mid range so they could open up the paint for rondo drives. If you didn't have jump shooting big men, rondo wouldn't be able to drive, because those jump shooting big men wouldn't be pulling defenders out of the paint. Also, just in general yoU needed to surround rondo with shooters.
Agree with you. The problems the team are offensively and defensively. Offensive manover of Rondo is slow, and predictable sometimes. Very static position of players like PP/KG or Ray (till last year). The only smart moves that Rondo make in are unpredictable smart penetrations that he does well. But if you take care of offensive philosophy of Rondo, of coarse there is not any. At this pint, I don't understand how Doc does not change anything, because in this season this problem is more than evident. If you compare Ray playing for Heat you will see that Heat do not use great PG, who can't play more with the ball like Rondo does. So HEAT use more movement of Lebron, Wade or other shooting guys, and let the PG to play less and less with the ball, and delivery the ball the Lebron, Wade, etc. This HEAT strategy killed the OKC in final games. Defensilvy Rondo is a poor defender...
What is 'offensive manover'? not being a jerk, I just don't know what you are trying to say 3/4 the time.
Last I checked Rondo isn't the one who makes KG and PP static, that would be whatever offensive scheme we are running at the time. Our other players seem to wait around for Rondo to make a play sometimes. I wish that we could move without the ball more, and that includes everyone.
Moving without the ball gets open looks and allows for better ball movement. This is a big problem with our team, but it isn't only on Rondo, it is the whole team.
