Rajon Rondo is loved on New England Sports Online

Rajon Rondo has proved himself to be an elite point guard in this league. Period.

His mid-range jump shot and even his three pointers are developing and with every game you can see his confidence building.

There is no other point guard in the league who has such an impact on his team. It seems like whenever the Celts lose a game, it is because Rajon Rondo had an off-day.

Rondo is no longer just a random point guard, he is the kid who not only is the difference between a win and a loss, but he is also the glue between the big three, meaning he is the big "fourth."

If his jump shot continues to develop, can you imagine any team trying to stop the Celtics?!

Paul Pierce can stretch the defense with his three-point shot and also is great at driving to the hoop.

Ray Allen can also stretch the defense with his killer three, and Kevin Garnett adds his jump shot and post up abilities.

Then, throw in Kendrick Perkins' developing offensive and defensive skills, Leon Powe's rebounding ability and Glen Davis' mid-range shot, and you have a monstrous offensive juggernaut.

Now, as if a defense could handle anything else, Rajon Rondo's driving ability will be killer.

The Celtics at full strength are unbeatable. What's scarier for opposing teams, they will just keep getting better.
