When the big 3 retire, Rondo will get exposed just like Lin, unless Boston brings in some talent. Say what you will about Rondo being gr8, but at the end of the day, no matter how good of a game he's having, you'd still rather let him shoot than either one of the big 3 get hot. And THAT'S why I say he's overrated. He's not getting triple doubles because he's that much better than his competition. He's doing it because, as a defense, you can't afford to focus your attention on him. If you do, the Celtics will blow you out.
Not to diminish it but it wasn't like he was competing with Centers for those rebounds. A lot of them were loose balls and attributed to the fact that Lin and Amare don't box out.
However, his stat line was impressive last night. I'll pass though. He can't shoot for $h!t, his passing is overrated and he can't hit a free throw to save his life. If I'm going to give up Stat and get back players (and not cap room), it's going to be for a guy I know can produce with or without Melo. I think Rondo's stats are exaggerated because of his teammates.
