Onthisteam, he wouldn't have that luxury. Chandler is a non threat offensively. Amare is up and down and who knows what we we'll get from the SG position this year. Therefore, I think he'll help defensively but offensively, we'd be about the sae or worse. Plus, I don't like PG's who can't hit heir freethrows or hit an open J.
Just my opinion. I'm not saying he's a bum or anything. I just think he's a little overrated.
If anything I would think the fact that teams didn't double off of Rondo is a testament to how good they feel he is.
As far as his offense goes, the guy gets the points when they are needed, and he does so much more than that to impact a game.
We've seen it with our own eyes in the playoffs.
