"How are boston winning without their star?!"!"

Here's a hint... he's NOT a star, nor is he that good. Boston's record has been better in 38 games without rondo than with him.


If you wanna know why one of most stat and analytic-centric front offices (boston... keep in mind, most of it originated from MIT, in their backyard) has been shopping Rondo for players like Curry who are deemed 'worse' by mainstream media.... it's because they know he's not as good as them. He's 'good' but nothing special

Id trade Gasol+Metta for Batum+JJ Hickson
But portland would not....lol

What's the incentive for portland to take 2 much older players with much higher salary?

yao ming, voted all star every year when he didn't play

jeremy lin 3rd most votes as a guard


guess what, people are idiots. By every metric possible, Curry helps you win games much more than Rondo. Boston's own front office agrees

ok comparing Yao ming and Lin for whom entire China is voting, to Rondo is simply ridiculous. Rondo is special.

nah, he's not

his limitations make him a highly overrated player. The results don't lie

Bill Simmons ‏@BillSimmons
KG for Bledsoe/DeAndre is a fascinating trade rumor. I can tell you 2 teams that don't want that trade to happen: OKC and Miami.


God that better not happen. KG would turn Clippers into a legit title contender. He'd fit perfectly with CP3, Blake and give them that added presense.

problem is.... he overpasses.

he's selfish.

An example of a high iq playmaker is CP3, guy always makes right decision, if he has the shot he takes it, if he doesn't he passes, he sets everyone up

Rondo doesnt do that, and makes him painfully predictable.

according to one scout interviewed by Marc Stein, Rondo was "playing for steals and assists sometimes instead of making the winning play or the easier play or defending his guy like he should."


See DRose, can't really shoot, Westbrook is erratic as fuck, but they also get to free throw line a lot and make em. Rondo is afraid of free throws so you're stuck with a player who doesnt shoot or really attack.

-

Don't get me wrong, he's not a bad player, i just happen to not see a guy who is a top 10 pg. Even if he is possibly the best passer, and has potential to be, he doesn't play winning basketball consistently.

It's not the lack of shooting which bugs me, as much as it's total lack of bbiq. You know Kidd is one of my favs and guy couldn't shoot till he ewas like 35

I'm watching Pacers vs Bulls.
George is a beast. How come Senatore, he's never mentioned to the best in the league. What's your opinion on him? This Pacers team looks young they may be good in the future. I was expecting more from Hibbert, but I think he's stuck the same player as he was two years ago. or he's just getting worse.

I mentioned george a few pages back.

I love George's game, always have. Defensive beast. All around good offensive player. I don't think he'll be a big time scorer though. Maybe more like a Deng, Iguodala type player (which of course is very useful)

Indiana is lacking something though. Lot of nice pieces but missing 'the guy' if you will. Hibberts been straight up bad

playing houston tonight.

first time we'll see houston this year (out of 4 total match ups). Kind of excited and scared.

Houston's one of most exciting teams to watch. They are dangerous. Type of team who can beat anyone.


Rough 4 games in 5 nights...

Houston, OKC... day off, san antonio, memphis.

ouch

Hibbert being bad depends on how you view it, yes - he's not worth max money and yes, he has been mediocre on offense, but he is the anchor of the 1# defense in the league. Advanced statistics support the statement that he has been one of the best defensive players in the league this season, thus, Indiana wouldn't be as impressive without him.

no you're right there. I mean he's regressed on offense.

George has been best defensive player on team, followed by hibbert. REally all of them have been above average


the best defensive impact player has ben marc gasol

HOLY SHIT. Most insane first half ever. We're down 77-62 to Houston

Both teams shooting lights out. Houston is running us out of the gym. The pass and space and run so well. 21 assists in a half is unheard of. We have 18 which is also insane

Turn it on
