Man this match up has gotin heated this season. Many people are undissided about wich point gaurd has the edge. Rose has the points and Rondo has the assist and the wins. According to the all-star ballot most choose D Rose over Rondo and Derrick is considered for MVP this year but why not Rajon? I think people dont understand what rondo does for his team. He brings Defense and runs the Offense. Just the other day he held Deron Williams to 5pts and 6 asts a guy who averages 21 pts and 9 asts. Rondo averages a double double with 10 pts and 13 asts. He can control the game without scoring. Sure he has great shooters around him but still most of them are over 30 years old so they arent as fast as they use to be.
But I think this is good for Rajon Rondo because he has been going around telling everyone he is the best Point Gaurd in the nba but others think different. I hope this really gets to Rondo that it makes him more determined to improve his game. Have a chip on his shoulder will help him, kind of like it helped Gilbert Arenas in his yearly career.
One thing i would like him to work on is his mid range jumpshot kind of like Tony Parkers shot so it will inable him too be more of a threat and will strech the defense for a lay-up or easy pass.
