This is my first time creating a story fan post. I'm not an expert at journalism nor writing a proper story. So please bear with me.
I already know there are many stories, comments on this topic. However, I feel it's a topic that should be addressed more often. Topic, Rondo's jump shot. I always wondered why a great player as Rondo have not worked on his jump shot? A few years ago, my friends and I had a debate about the future point guards. The two point guards at the top of the list were Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo. At the time both guards were compared equally with Rondo having a tiny advantage over Rose, assists. Rondo defensive game was second to none and his ability to see the floor was above many guards at the time. My Bulls fan friends had nothing to say about Rondo after bringing up Rondo's assist, steals numbers. It was clear Rondo was a better overall guard over Derrick Rose. This was three years ago. Since then both players are no longer matched equally. Derrick Rose has improved and Rondo remain the same.
Here is my true opinion about Rondo. I think Rondo has the potential in becoming a top 5 player and the best point guard in the new era. Also, maybe the best player in the league. The only problem or the only thing holding Rajon back is his jump shot. He has a amazing wingspan for a 6-1 PG, A very high basketball I.Q., quickness and leadership ability on the court. He has second to none advantages except a jumper. Just imagine Rondo with a consistent 15-20 ft jump shot? If Rondo had a consistent jump shot, the Celtics offense will improve. No more old age, must get younger excuse. They need Rondo to step up his shooting game. Rondo not shooting the ball is a huge cancer to the Celtics offense. I hate saying it but it's the truth. Opposing teams leaving Rondo open 10-15 ft away from the basket does slow down the Celtics ball movement and helps the opposing team to get back on defense. I'm sure I'm not the only one saying this.
