A potential positive side effect of Rondo's injury could be that he might be at home actually watching these games and being forced to hear what other people have to say about him beyond Doc and his teammates: what Tommy has to say about the offense, other commentators, the post game crew, the guys on espn, the tnt crew, etc. All of them were talking about the flow of the offense today, showing with or without Rondo stats and our team record (completely surprised to see that our record over the past 4 years without rondo is better than it is with, and that was with a significant sample size as well).
I'm hoping Rondo sees all this and comes back as our version of Tony Parker. A guy who worked on his jump shot, drives to the basket without hesitation, scores when the shot is there, passes when the pass is there, and plays hard all game, every game. Of course none of this matters if the Celts don't continue to show the offense moves better with the ball moving, and/or if Rondo is just too stubborn to change.
This injury could really be a blessing in disguise. The season was going nowhere. Now we get to see what the other players have to give, we can see how our offense runs with a less ball dominating guard who can shoot and wants to get to the line, Danny gets to evaluate the team with and without Rondo and make a long term decision (could Rondo be this generation's Antoine? you love him, but deep down you're thinking you might be better without him), Doc gets to look like a hero for coaching a team without Rondo and them still doing decent, Pierce and KG being the undisputed leaders again, and our season's storyline changing from disappointing to overachieving feelgood story.
