Simply put the C's just don't have the talent to be consistent and waiting for their chemistry to improve is like looking for a four leaf clover. Rondo is indeed the best player the C's have, he runs the floor like no other starter can because the other starters are just too old to do what the younger players in this league are doing using their quickness, speed and athleticism, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett had it once but now because of their age that ability is fading on them when it comes to competing with players that are 5 to 15 years younger than them. The C's don't have a player that they can go to from game to game and get them 25 - 30 points without taking 30 shots. Boston is constantly being exposed by their age. and their lack of youthful talent, they are foolish to think that Garnett and Pierce are going to compete with Lebron James, and Dwayne Wade, Carmello Anthony & JR Smith, Kevin Durant & Westbrook ect ect ect. Boston struggles mightily against quick athletic teams and now days nearly every team is running like horses, Rondo doesn't have players on his team that has dominating talent, so despite the fact that he's an elite point guard he's not leading this team anywhere close to a championship. Kevin and Paul at this point in their careers are good additions to have if they had youthful talent, and i'm not talking about Jeff Green he's not the answer, nether is Avery Bradley. Boston had an opportunity to take Perry Jones in the draft and chose Fab Melo instead, Jones talent wise is off the charts and he's 6'10, with Kevin, Paul ,and Rondo's tutelage, Jones would've have been a great running partner for Rondo, and Jones would have been an emerging star something the C's need desperately. No matter how you look at things currently Boston needs youthful star talent or they will be no better than mediocre.
