Say we do go on a run for the rest of the year and make a little noise in the playoffs.
Who's to say that Rondo wouldn't recognize that and adapt to it? He's stubborn, but he's also very intelligent. If he sees that something is working well, I'd say chances are very good that he'd make an effort to fit in, rather than forcing the Celtics back into a stagnant offense. I don't think he likes losing any more than we do.
For the third time...
How is this Rondo's fault and not Doc's?
The pound the ball to the ground offense is all Doc. UGH.
I missed the part where I blamed anybody for anything. I'm saying that if the team plays well without Rondo, then I don't see much reason to believe that we'll go back to playing stagnant ball when he gets back.

Still not seeing any blame anywhere in there. Looks to me like I'm saying that, in the event that we play well, Rondo isn't going to try to jerk the train back off of the tracks.
Think what you want, though.
In that case, I guess I misunderstood you. I apologize for that.
The emergence of AB has pretty much confirmed that Rondo doesn't care about style, he just wants the win. Whether it be with style like this
or with far less style like this
To me, if and when the team succeeds playing another style, I think it pretty much goes without saying that Rondo will go with it.
Add to that the fact that Rondo's a runner. The pound it to the ground offense just has to be all Doc. I just don't think he's going to revert to it.
People in the "Courtney Lee is unhappy" thread keep implying that Rondo's the one who's favoring this play style. Probably the reason for my paranoia.
