Rondo is a VERY good basketball player, but unfortunately for us, Celtics fans, he is not THAT good. He is not on a Paul/Rose level where he can be the number 1 guy and carry a team on his shoulders. The sooner everyone here except that - the better.
He is what he is, a pass-first, 'shoot if I really have to', point guard who is perfect for a team with multiple offensive treats (like a 2008 BOS team) - when he can run the show, gets everyone involved and still can be somewhat dangerous on offense when attacking the basket with his speed and athleticism.
I love Rondo, he is my favorite player to watch, but I don't think you can build around a guy like Rondo, at least not with these personal on the roster.
KG and Pierce are 35 and 36 years old and its ludicrous to expect them to carry the load at this stage of their careers. Rondo was supposed to be a leader of this team and take larger burden offensively but he hasn't done anything to prove that he can do that. He is still passive most of the times, avoiding to attack the basket prolly because he doesn't won't to shoot FT. Leaders should lead by example on and off the court, they don't bump or throw balls at officials.
So, if this team is still around .500 before all-star break what is Danny's best move looking forward?
Do we hope they can still turn it around, stay put and maybe add a buyout guy like Dalembert to help with rebounding/protecting the basket?
If this team struggles now without any major injury, what can we expect next season when Doc will have to work with what he has now (no cap space) and KG and PP will be a year older.
