Rondo edged for Player of the Week

Rondo has been impressive during his streak, and in particular had a pretty good week last week. Just not quite good enough to win Player of the Week.

Fresh off tying John Stockton's 37-game double-digit assist streak on Sunday in Orlando, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was nominated for Player of the Week, but was edged in the Eastern Conference by Atlanta's Al Horford.

In related news, Jason Terry is making the case that Rajon's assist streak is more impressive than John Stockton's or Magic Johnson's.

Green Street " Irish Coffee: Why Rajon Rondo’s assist streak is more impressive than John Stockton’s or Magic Johnson’s

"It’s just a different style of play," said Terry, whose longest streak of double-digit assists lasted all of three games in 2003. "Now, it’s a lot more difficult to get those assists per se as in the ’80s. If you look at the style of play, it was up-and-down, run-and-gun. Now, there are much more intricate defenses. There’s also the zone defense, so it makes it a lot tougher to get assists. So, that makes his feat a lot more amazing."

An interesting argument.
