btw how do you see Nets chances this season?
depends on how well Kidd does
He's a rookie coach i guess we have to keep our expectations in check, I'm not super convinced that will bode well for this team, I mean newcomers are old and brook, joe and deron are in their primes.
yup. one of the all-time might-have-beens. and from my friends who are close to the team, one of hte sweetest guys ever.
I had to google - I thought he was found dead or something.
So he has a crack addiction? I had seen quotes about his addiction to "candy" before - stupid me, I thought he was referring to real candy
Only his career.
And yes, the references to "candy" were to the traditional kind, like Snickers or Reese's Cups or whatever. There were occasional features stories about how much of it he consumed. Whatever drug issues he may also have, the candy references were not some sort of urban slang.
Just to get some conversation going, read this article about Rondo and why he isn't worth a max deal despite his passing and defensive abilities.
Whoa, the author posits a causal relationship between Rondo's not being an elite-level scorer and the fact that he's a crappy shooter. Controversial stuff!
Author's also cherry picking statistics, especially the section on 4th quarter performance. I'd like to see overall impact on the team rather than just points and shooting percentage. A player can have other impacts on the game (assists, defense, rebounding, etc.)
Obvious stuff yes but again he is being considered a max player and some here might actually agree. So you really don't know what kind of discussion you can get.
As skitlet said, there are also intangibles that goes further than just stats to a player so yeah.
He's also a complete punk that many of the best/most respected players would be wary of playing with....that also should factor in any decision to make him 'the franchise'
#same problems as dwight howard # still gets max moneyz
if rondo comes back healthy and strong he'll be traded. I hate to see him go, but two more years at that great contract is worth a motherload - especially for a team that can utilize his talents (warriors/nuggets/rockets).. my bet is there's a three way trade involving the Pacers and celtics.
please... do you know how perfect rondo would be on the Heat? In fact the heat actually have to start thinking of ways to keep lebron.... getting him a pass first PG (damn that sounded weird and is sad considering) like rondo might be one of the ways to extend lebron's career after this year.
