Quote from: timobusa on February 13, 2013, 01:58:14 PMBob Ryan has been a negative nancy for the past 10 years.I disagree strongly.But I see a very awful thing in this forum. Everybody who is being critic about Rondo is going to be attacked in person, without making debate facing facts and arguments.
Bob Ryan has been a negative nancy for the past 10 years.
I am not saying Rondo CAN'T change. I am not saying Rondo Won'T change. Because frankly, I really have no idea.But here is the important question. If Rondo DID change, then what kind of value would he bring to the team. Off thd ball, he isn't really very much help at all to the team. Guys will double off of him and his presence will probably hurt the offense more than it helps.So basically, we either committ to Rondo and let him be Rondo or we don't.
Maybe I am mistaken here, but why do I recall that a few years back Bob Ryan referred to Rondo as a punk, or something like that. Anyone else remember that? And thanks to the OP for keeping the Rondo hate alive.

And thanks to the OP for keeping the Rondo hate alive. By the way, Ryan has been trying to get Rondo out of town for a long time.Didn't call him a punk, but this article appeared in 2009: http://www.boston.com/sports/basketball/celtics/articles/2009/06/25/the_curious_case_of_rajon_rondo/And a more recent article where Ryan shows his love for Rajon: http://www.csnne.com/blog/celtics-talk/post/Ryan-Rondos-inscrutability-drives-Celtic?blockID=661774And, one more Ryan love letter to Rondo: http://www.csnne.com/blog/celtics-talk/post/Ryan-Rondo-makes-the-Celtics-nervous?blockID=606668Anyone else sense a pattern?
And who cares who Ryan is or what he says? Not many people in the hoopverse.

Ryan is or at least was a great writer. But when he speaks he falls into talking-radio-head-stir-the-pot mode. He wants to get a rise, some attention. He also said in the summer of 2007 that the Celtics had no business thinking championship after they acquired Allen and KG. Again I think he was just enjoying going against the grain.I trust Jackie M much more. Rondo is a smart guy. Who knows what kind of changes he might make when he comes back.
Rondo doesn't need to change much - the team was blazing hot with him playing his game in the 2nd half of last season.
