The celtics execute better in the halfcourt without rondo. the ball movement is better and guys are playing better offensively cause rondo isnt their to pound the ball.

This is true but in the playoffs when they play better defensive teams they will miss Rondo's decision making and ability to control pace.

Stop clinging to the false messiah Rondo, C's fans.

He was only good because Ray Allen, KG and Pierce stretched the floor and defenses sagged off him. He capitalized and put up monster stats, but for what?

They won one title, during which Rondo was benched in the finals in favor of Eddie House.

They had another finals run, where Rondo was a monster in the playoffs until he got to the finals and again wasn't that great.

Without Ray Ray converting sideways Rondo passes and contested shots into Rondo assists, Rondo has been exposed.


He was always on the court with 3 of the best perimeter and midrange shooters of all time. When one goes, so did Rondo's game and so did all the idiots claiming "Rajon Rondo top 10 player in the NBA"

C's are better off without Rondo. Would be funny if they win a title without him.

Rondo plays - two NBA Finals appearances, a championship, another conference Finals appearance, and two 60 win seasons.

Rondo was never benched in the Finals, what the hell are you even talking about? Did you watch the 2008 Finals? He played limited minutes in Games 3 and 4 because he hurt his ankle midway through Game 3, and Game 5 because Eddie House played well in Game 4.

He played 30+ minutes Games 1-2 and Game 6 and averaged 13ppg/6rpg/10apg/3spg in those games.

C's are better off without Rondo. Would be funny if they win a title without him.

Rondo was in his 2nd year and had an ankle sprain in the championship series but he did show flashes of brilliance in that series. Game 6 comes to mind where he was a big part in helping the C's run the Lakers off the floor.'

in 2010 there wasn't a Celtics players who was very good in that series. Rondo was not good but he was far more consistent than the other star players. I think it was so bad for the C's that Kobe would of won fMVP even if they had lost that game. Also, people should remember that the Celtics really had no business of even getting that far that season. If it wasn't the outstanding play(monster post season) than the Celtics don't even make it that far.

That whole postseason was a triumph of team basketball, everyone had great games, even Nate and Big Baby. Rondo was the glue though and I don't think they'd have given the Finals MVP to Kobe had we won game 7 - don't think he'd have wanted it anyway.

Rondo goes down, the team dramatically improves. Face reality C's fans.

Rondo was a scrub before the big 3 got there and he will be a scrub when the big 3 are gone.

It is crazy. When Rondo went down, folks were writing the Celtics off. Folks (ESPN and CBS experts) were saying that the Celtics can't function without Rondo. Can't move the ball without Rondo. On an on they went. The C's run off 6 straight wins, among them a complete undressing of the Lakers. Yeah so much for the C's being done.

In terms of offensive rate the Celtics offense has always been bad because it is built around long 2's I blame that more on Doc and the aging nature of the team rather than solely on Rondo. Also they have been a very poor rebounding team which impacts those numbers nut when you look deeper aren't the Celtics a top TS% team???

Rondo was a scrub before the big 3 got there and he will be a scrub when the big 3 are gone.

Rondo was not a scrub as a rookie
it was clear when he got play time in the 2nd half that he was a steal of the 06 draft.

The Celtics are improved now because they are actually giving effort. The problem in Boston this season has been effort not level of talent. It is also why they won 6 in a row before they lost 6 in a row.
