Here is every game where a Celtic has had 15+ boards since 2008:
Pretty impressive that Rondo has 2 of the top 8 best rebounding efforts over the past six seasons.
Firstly he's an extraordinary rebounding PG already, boxing out with the likes of Sully.
Secondly, our game force misses which lets any player get easy DREBS and the aggressive Rondo loves padding stats.
It's a strange league, comprised of Rondo and about 450 guys who never try and get
points or assists or rebounds.
Did you mean that?
Maybe not. Maybe it's only when you try and get a rebound or an assist it's stat padding. Or, I don't know, maybe when players try to get rebounds and pass the ball to teammates they're actually trying to win games and the "stat padding" nonsense is just people that don't like Rondo trying to denigrate his accomplishments.
Oh I see. Yeah when Rondo does it it's "stat padding". When everyone else does it, they're "doing it for the team".
I was talking about the "pure scorers" in the league. Bargnani, Monta Ellis, JR Smith...they do nothing else but score. Makes you appreciate Rondo.
Scoring has been glorified thanks to the marketing of one Michael Jordan.
