Rondo Slumping

Even if he doesn't want to label it a slump, that's what it is.

Rajon Rondo needs to recover - BostonHerald.com

"To his credit, at halftime he said, ‘Man, I’m playing like crap.’ And I said, ‘That’s fine, but keep playing,’ " Rivers said. "Even if you don’t play well, it can’t affect your energy and your effort, because everyone is always watching on your team." The problem is Rondo only got marginally better. He wasn’t particularly effective during the Celtics’ Thursday night loss to the Lakers, either, though he didn’t want to entertain a suggestion that he’s in the midst of a slump. "That’s you guys’ opinions," he said. "In my mind it is what it is. I just didn’t play well. I think I’m physically all right. I wouldn’t be playing if I wasn’t. The wrist is fine. I’ve started to play a lot of minutes but regardless."

A lot of folks are quick to toss Rondo under the bus and/or offer him up in trade. I still see a guy that will figure things out and get back to being dominant again. I'll write more on this later, but Rondo has always been an enigma, perhaps even to himself. He'll get things going again.
