Screamingdoom is starting to rub some people the wrong way
Default Kyrie or Rondo?

If you were starting a team, which one of these would you take if you had a choice?

I mean the Celtics aren't winning shit this year so there is literally no reason to choose Rondo for his defense or experience.

Rondo is the least of their offensive woes

their offense is built around mid range to long 2 shooters, which is the worst way to build an offense

If I'm building a team I take Kyrie easily though.

Rondo stopped playing defense anyway. He doesn't give a shit.

I take Kyrie Irving third behind LeBron and Durant.

But all the Wall/Rose/Lillard fans have told me that Irving has peaked.

People are gonna act like Rondo isn't playing well right now because of the Celtics losing streak, but he's had two triple doubles in a row (almost three, he had 17/12/8 vs Cleveland) and is starting to look like the player we expected after the Playoff run last year. From what I've seen from Kyrie, it's obvious he's gonna be the best PG in the league at some point but I'd give the nod to Rondo right now as the better all around PG.
