bummed for Rondo - this series was revitalizing his career after Dallas and Sac. 


I think his play here and over the last part of the season has done enough that he'll be viewed as an attractive option by some teams for next year. I'm happy for him.

For our part - good news, but not great news, I think. Butler can still go off for 40 and dominate the game in the 4th quarter , and if he does that in game 3 or 4, we will be very hard pressed to take the series.

I think he needed to show in this series he still could be Playoff Rondo to really draw interest.  his regular season play down the stretch would have kept him in the league with someone but with his play the past couple of games in the series, I think a team looking on the playoff margins could look at him as a player that could push them further in the playoffs.    hope so for his sake.

Given that Jimmy Garoppolo played his way into "possible franchise quarterback" status in 1.5 career games, I think Rondo's two game stint here is enough.

 OMG! It's true! Coach Hoiberg said he broke it on Olynyk's Elbow! Too funny!

So does this mean we are going to resign the guy for all he does for us that doesn't show up on a stat sheet!?!  ;D
so much for his reputation as being soft.  ;D

Lol, Olynyk is good for injuring opposing teams' players...not a bad contribution to the team at least. The Bernard Pollard of the NBA.

Real talk. If the Celtics can't win this game with all these factored in, then they do not belong here in the playoffs lol.

But garopollo only has good film. Rondo has a lot of bad from just this season.

I think it's safe to say that KO's defensive prowess is highly underrated.

An underrated factor of Rondo being injured will be Robin Lopez's production.

I watched a fair bit of Bulls this year and one staple for that offense was the Robin Lopez 44% mid-range shot. Rondo was capable of feeding him a steady supply of these in the same way he used to do so with KG; by dribbling 10 feet into the crease drawing Lopez's defender, and kickin it out for an easy 2. It's a subtle little move but one that's huge for their spacing and something I don't think Jerian Grant or Michael Carter-Williams are particularly adept at

That's not even to mention that Rondo is one of the top 3 post entry passers in the league. Of all the guys who could have the biggest drop off without Rondo, I'd put Lopez at the top of the list.

in all likelihood, rondo's minutes will be taken up by grant. this could be very, very good for the celtics.

i just read that so far in this series in the 27 minutes when grant played, chicago has been outscored by the celtics by 9.7 points per 100 possessions, worst of any bulls player who's seen action.

this is according to NBA.com/Stats.

thank you once more olly!!!!!! now if you could just do something about lopez.  ;)

The league will probably look into that and if they think it's intentional he is gone lol.  ;D
