Appreciate the brilliance of Rondo.
Basketball coaches and players do.

Give it a watch!

TP for sharing. I love watching Rondo!
Arrogant Dutchman with an absurd sarcastic sense of humor and an extreme world view. Mildly dangerous.

It seems like Rondo really can turn it on when he wants to. He obviously showed no effort in Dallas, but he showed up in the playoffs in Chicago and is absolutely taking control of the series for the Pelicans.

I still think Boston would have come back in that Bulls series even if Rondo was healthy (remember, Isaiah was still obviously grieving at that point and wasn't 100% the first few games).

THAT SAID, it would have likely been a close Game 7 series instead of a 6-game series where by Games 5 and 6 the C's just won comfortably and Bulls seemed to give up by Game 5.

But yeah, Playoff Rondo is a beautiful thing to see.

Playoff Rondo in Game 3 at the United Center would have D'ed up Isaiah Thomas so bad that there wouldn't be a breather's chance being down 0-3.

Me thinks Celts caught a break with Rondo's injury.

Yeah, I think we got extremely lucky. The way Rondo still is able to pick defenses apart is awesome, and when he's locked in on defense next to Jrue they are super hard to score against. Would have continued to be like that with Rondo next to Butler.

I'm glad he can still turn it on like this. Always loved Rondo. Still holds a place in my heart as my favourite Celtic guard post 2000 (subject to change if Kyrie wins us a ring)

I know that it's early but I'm going to enjoy this while it lasts, however long that might be ;D -
