Both TA and Rondo can get to the rim virtually at will. So let them do what they do best.
How exactly can players get to the rim at will when facing, for example, a compact 2-3 zone, no matter how good they are doing it? I mean, if you have an answer to this question, you can become an instant billionaire, there's a fortune to be made on books and dvds.
Ah, yes. Exaggeration in an attempt to prove a point. One of the great staples of the blog. TA can get to the rim at will, now. Of course, he doesn't always bring the ball with him. And sometimes he hurts himself.
Decent outside shot?
Yeah, right there with Quinton Ross. One undersize shooter off the bench isn't enough. Period. You know, that fella #50 who doesn't start. The bench.
Guy's playing pretty well defensively. His judgment with the ball is better, but it hardly qualifies as good. And as for the perimeter shooting, not there. Not likely to be, either. The fictionalizing of this guy's skill set on this board never ceases to amaze me. The Gerald Green "Welcome to Fantasy Island" Award.
Excuse me, but I'm not ready to dust off a space for TA in Springfield.
Windex away, fellers.
