Rondo and Fantasy Basketball

Neil Tardy of TalentedMrRoto.com recently wrote an Insider piece for ESPN that included a look at Rajon Rondo. Tardy is on the Rondo bandwagon as the quote below shows. Two things:

  1. Congratulations to Red's Army on the shout out from Tardy. But why wouldn't he include the actual link? That confuses me. And yes I will link to it here. Nice work.  
  2. Clearly Tardy wrote this before the Rajon Rondo movie took the Internet by storm. I won't hold it against him.
"A blog called RedsArmy.com recently posted a dissertation on Rondo's jump shot, suggesting, through words and photos, that the rookie's problem is that he keeps the ball almost flat in his hand when he shoots, rather than cradling it with his fingertips. It could be a coincidence, but the way Rondo finished the season, I wonder if he's been searching his name on the Internet. After shooting under 40 percent over the first five months, Rondo was a sizzling 56.8 percent from the floor over his final nine games. He also averaged 14.1 points, 5.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds during that span. You know the fella is quick -- Rondo averaged 2.1 steals a game after the All-Star break -- but can he really be a productive fantasy point guard long term? As misleading as last impressions can be, I'm buying on Rondo, mainly because he should have the opportunity. If he wasn't already the starter, Sebastian Telfair's arrest on gun charges pretty much assures that Rondo will be running the point in Boston next season. I can see him going for 12 points, 5 assists, 2 steals and 42 percent from the field in 2007-08."

I drafted Rondo in a fantasy league last year, dropped him early on, and then missed out on him late. I will definitely get him next year. But it will probably be in the 2nd round because I'm a homer.
