The reason we are not a good team probably has more to do with so many players that want things done their way and want their touches than it has to do with Rondo.
You know what? Lee is a journeyman bench SG or fringe starter at best and has been on 4 teams in 5 years. The last thing he should be doing is complaining about how an offense runs, how many touches he gets or anything else.
He's just gotten to a good team for the first time since his rookie year. And before the season is half over and just after that team's starting PG and All-Star goes down with a season ending injury, he starts complaining?
Ship him out of town along with Bass. I don't need role players complaining about how the team is being run, their playing time or their touches. When the Big Three came together they all sacrificed their touches and shots and the way they were used to things being run in favor of a team concept. Last thing I want while those players are still on the team is role players complaining about stuff those HOFers sacrificed to win a championship.
We're not a good team and he is only telling what many have not said. Take off your Rondo pants and see the other side to the situation. Lee has a point and is a great player, and his opinions do count. I, for one, think he is right.
Lee, Barbosa and Bass have all complained about getting time and touches. That's never happened here during the Big Three era because it was TEAM first. I don't see Sully, Pierce, KG, or Bradley doing that. Just players that want their games not being sacrificed for the good of the team.
Seems to me this must be the reason this guy has been on 4 teams in 5 years.
When he was faded from Orlando, it was because the Nets saw talent in him.
When he went to Houston, they needed him gone so the salaries could match.
Finally, Lee and Ainge saw Lee was a great player and thus traded for him.
He's a solid role player and the quintessential NBA player too.
He will have a job for a while, for a reason.
And with his experience, it's clear he knows how teams work, since he never complained in Orlando or Houston or New Jersey.
Do your research and stop being such a homer. Lee is entitled to his opinion.
