Therefore, the best thing to do is examine the good and the bad, and hope you wind up somewhere in the middle with answers.
Ultimately, you may find that most of Rondo's benefits are also drawbacks. He is truly that unique of a basketball player and personality. There are things about him that fans love, but those are the same things that they also hate.

However, with the Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett era teetering on the edge, the Celtics are growing closer to a Rondo-led experience. The team claimed that it was his team a year ago, but you never really take over until the big brother leaves the nest. Then, you can move into his room and use his stuff. Until then, you're only acting.

For now, everyone grab your yellow legal pad, it's pros and cons time!
