With the latest additions of the two 2014 NBA Draft picks. The Boston Celtics might have to look deeper in within the contract of their best play maker. Rajon Rondo, like most think will be the current member to build around throughout its young roster. Also is faced with the same drastic decisions dealing on Rondo's future for next season. So we are faced with an impasse based on the uncertainty regarding Rondo's and most notably Avery Bradley's situation moving forward. Marcus Smart picked 6th and James Young 17th are two high-motored guards willing to make an immediate impact at both the 1 and 2 guard spots.
Marcus Smart who runs his game in waves. Is a spot on jump shooter that can turn a game around on a dime, as well as drive and create like a point guard. James Young a more natural shooting guard provides much intangibles such as slashing to the basket and bombing away from beyond the arc. What makes this ordeal nerve-racking is that Rondo and Bradley are necessarily the same molded players as the two the Celtics that were just drafted. Avery Bradley can rotate between point guard role and as an undersized shooting guard. Though him being injury proned brings a high level of uncertainty to counter with. Rondo face it, is still the best player on the Celtics roster so even more time will be burned in the decision to keep him locked up.
If the main concept is to build for the future now and keep the young guys.This was shown on Thursday Night's selections. No matter how you spin it Boston currently has 4 possible point guards to work under for next year. Giving their backcourt depth galore, but also providing stress on the frontcourt down low. (How about a Center to spare huh?) I'm all in favor of letting these two guys shine for many years.
Avery Bradley and Rajon Rondo were the most talked about players coming into this off season and will continue to be speculated either way. Much increased anticipation grew in our fandom of Bradley's development. This might after all become more of a illusion than reality.
