Rondo, until he develops a jump shot and consistency, will never be the best player on a championship team. He's best suited as a second-best player on a title team, and I think it's difficult for people on this board to recognize that.
Aside from the fact that Rondo seems to have developed a jump shot, he's already been the best player on a team that went to game 7 of the finals and game 7 of the ecf in separate seasons. It's also difficult for people on this board to recognize that they're claiming Rondo will never be able to do what he's already shown that he's capable of.
By jump shot, I mean a consistent, you-can't-leave-me-open-anymore shot, and then you might as well add in range out to the three point line. I know this is a lot to ask, but do you know how much easier it would be if Rondo had range? Man, I wish Rondo could get that. Then, he'd be near unstoppable.
I'd argue that the '10 run was a total team effort. Everyone had their moments, whether it was the Big Three, Shrek and Donkey, even Sheed. I'll admit those playoffs proved to me Rondo was "the real deal."
Last year, I give 50% of the credit to KG, and 50% to Rondo. We needed both to play at unbelievable levels, and without that we'd have never made it out of the first round, people forget that monstrous Game 6 vs. Atlanta. KG was Minnesota KG.
