Playoff Rondo is a real thing. He is perfect for a team like the Pelicans, especially if they had one more scorer (Boogie). With him running the offense in the playoffs, they get great shots every possession.
I don't think non-celtic fans really get who playoff Rondo is. They saw a glimpse last year. They most excuse his Celtic days thinking he was the 3-4th banana.
They don't realize that he was the best player in the many of the biggest games for the Cs. They don't realize that there were multiple games in the Celtic-Heat series where Rondo was the best player on the court with at least 5 future hall-of-famers.
Playoff Rondo is real. That basketball IQ combined with Davis' scoring is one of the more terrifying matchups for oppositions out there. With Holliday playing at a high level, they are pretty dangerous.
