Rajon Rondo is a talented point guard, but he's always been surrounded by talented shooters. This has made his status among point guards to be an often hypothetical point of contention. Is he really that good, or do surrounding shooters enable his lack of a shot? Would Rondo be the same guy if his frontcourt was stocked by non-shooting bigs like Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan?
It's hard to decide these questions because we can't place Rajon Rondo into every hypothetical scenario and find out what happens. We can, however, take stock of the good PGs in the league and assess how they'd be so much better in a different system, flanked by better talent.
