Yes.

Does Chris Paul play defense? No. Flopping doesn't count.

Rondo isn't the best PG at either end. Certainly not offense.

Even another question, do you want your point guard to be able to shoot jumpshots or not be able to shoot jumpshots?

He missed 14 games, how could he possibly rank ahead of Steve Nash? Unless you rule missing the playoffs as an automatic drop in letter grade. Only in that case can his season be considered better than Nash's.



1. Tony Parker
2. Chris Paul
3. Russell Westbrook
4. Steve Nash
5. Rajon Rondo




He can't rank in the top 3. Westbrook is 100% not top 2. You can pick or choose either of those guys. Westbrook is locked in at no spot but #3.

This season Rondo had his worst defensive season since the Big 3 came into existence.




And Chris Paul plays defense.

I had him at my number 3 spot up until recently, but I'm putting him at #2 for the season.



CP3 is definitely my #1 though. Leading 6 categories in the top 5. Rondo has an impressive 3 though. I liked his 6 triple-doubles this season.

If you take rondo out of your team your franchise is losing maybe 15-20 games they could have won with him in the team.

This is why Rondo is my MVP.
Steve Nash can win two mvp, why can't I Rondo say
Couldn't agree more, Rondo does a lot of extra things to help win. Westbrook can go into chuck mode too easily. I think Rondo is much smarter. What drives me nuts, isn't his jumpshot, but inability to make free throws.

Is Rajan Rondo better than Kris Paul and Rustle Westbrook?

How Much is too many games missed? And how many were towards the end of the season rest? RW is definitely not above rondo this season. Put it this way; Rondo has a bad game offensively he rebounds and puts out 15 assist.
RW has a bad game and gets 5-6 rebounds and maybe 8-9 assist.

Rondo has an amazing game he put out 18pts 17rbs 20ast.
RW has a good game he puts out 40pts 8rbs 10ast

Just by having TP above CP your post loses creditability. I love CP's game and hate him every other way but tp is at 3 at best right behind rondo and cp. Ill give you TP over RW because it is debatable but not TP over every other PG in the league.

Rajon Rondo is better Westbrook and even better than Parker. But he hasn't been better this season. There shouldn't be a cutoff point, but there should be some fair common sense that allows you to view it for what it is. I don't like Westbrook but he has had a great season and he wasn't missed almost 20% of the season. Had Rondo missed like 5 or so games, then maybe I'd pick him. I don't know. But as it is, I can't pick him.



My post loses credibility? Parker has been the 3rd best player in the NBA this season. Calling out the credibility of my post because of that calls out your own credibility. Parker has been better than Westbrook and better than Rondo and whether you like it or not that comes with a fat ass period at the end of it.
