While much was made of the Boston Celtics' age-defying playoff run, their floor general is still in the prime of his career. He's also arguably their biggest difference maker.
Rondo nearly averaged a triple-double in the postseason (he had six in the regular season and four in the playoffs), dishing out his usual 11-12 assists per game. He also created more scoring opportunities when the Celtics needed it most, including an improbable 44-point outburst in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
With a consistently low amount of turnovers, great ball-handling skills, and toughness and tenacity that goes well beyond his limited years in the league, it's easy to make the argument that Rajon Rondo is currently the the best point guard in the NBA.
Despite being plagued by trade rumors earlier this season, the Celtics would be wise to build a new nucleus around him if and when they decide to get some value for their aging veterans. His play has continued to improve the last three seasons and looks to only get better in the years to come.
