Tonight Kyrie for sure.
If you are picking a PG for the playoffs I'd take Rondo.
Irving is pretty amazing and scary though.
He can pretty much do anything on the court and is never fazed or rushed on anything. He was playing against Bradley for a decent amount of possessions and just took his time and made plays.
I'd take Kyrie over Rondo in the playoffs pretty much no question unless I had multiple elite scoring options for Rondo to pass to.
All Rondo needs is a few players that can score in transition and players that can hit open jumpers. We didn't have elite scoring options in the playoffs last year and we made it to the ECF.
KG averaged 19 a game, shooting 50% in last year's playoffs. Paul also averaged 19 a game.
KG looked pretty elite to me in last year's playoffs.
The bulk of KG's baskets were open jumpers and an extremely high percentage of his shots were off of assists from Rondo. Not to rag on Paul (who was playing through an injury) but he shot under 40% for the playoffs. I love those two players, but people who are calling them elite scorers haven't updated their scouting reports in the last few years.
I'd say your imaginary scouting reports are pretty poor. Maybe they only have player ages and ignore their contributions?
As others have noted, you are greatly underestimating KG's contributions last year. And Paul shot a poor percentage in last year's playoffs, but mitigated that by getting to the line (6 times a game, more than Westbrook and 1 less than Durant). The only players to get to the line more in the playoffs than Paul were Kobe, LeBron, Durant, Carmelo, and Wade. I'd call those players elite scorers.
Getting to the line is a valuable skill for an elite player. You might want to update that fact on your Rajon Rondo scouting report.
