Don't even start with the "he can't shoot" argument, because that is exactly the point. Rondo is the most legit of actual point guards in the NBA.
Pass, pass, pass, steal and pass some more—that's what Rondo does. For some reason, when you look at the stat sheet at the end of games, he's dominated and filled it up, the Celtics have won and he's only scored 10 points—maybe.
It's easy to gel with a group of young guys, but to teach old dogs new tricks? That's an art and Rondo is Pablo Picasso on the court.
Without Rondo, the Celtics are less than mediocre. Doc Rivers knows it and so does Danny Ainge. Rondo is the captain of the Celtic ship and without him, the Celtics aren't just taking on water—they're sinking. Not bad for a player that was considered the weakest link just four or five years ago.
He's not even on Kurt Rambis' list, which is atrocious coming from a player that should know a real point guard when he sees one. Mr. Rambis, you had Steve Nash fifth on your list and Rondo nowhere?
He's No. 4 on Stephen A. Smith's list, which is not bad considering the players in front of him. Just thought Stephen A. would put Rondo higher.
