On Gino’s Jungle the other day, I created a post titled, “Rondo Scoring 2 Points Is The Best Invention Since Gino’s Jungle“. The title may be somewhat of a hyperbole, but I see it as being an exaggerated tale of the truth. As the season progresses, it has become noticeable to me that the team plays far better when Rondo is scoring less, and looking to pass the ball more. The team actually does great when you (as a fan), get frustrated with Rondo with the fact that he just decided to pass up a wide open layup to dish the ball out to an open player. In the beginning of the season it was like his assists were his points. He wanted to rack up as many assists as possible. Then, when the Big 3 lost some time to injury, he became a scorer and has kept the mentality for the majority of the time over the past month that the whole team has been back together. It wasn’t until lately that his point totals plummeted and the team is beginning to look back to normal. Is this a fair assumption… or is 1+1 not equal to 2? Feel free to vote on the poll and comment on the post at Gino’s Jungle if you strongly agree or disagree with me.
Is it a good thing for the team when Rondo scores under 10 points?
