Rondo is at the stage where he's getting John Stockton assists.

Still, he is really, really good as a court general. I'd argue he's a better decision maker than Chris Paul.

Because he's one of the best point guards in the league. He wasn't being guarded by Kyle. We give up 101.3ppg, etc. There's tons of reasons why/how it happened.

Why don't you guys despise this guy and his fake assists?


The Celtics have awesome offensive sets, he was just executing them most of the time.

He's also not scared to throw the pass if the defender is trailing somewhat close off a curl like Jose is.

It's a Boston scorekeeper's tradition to pad the home team's stats, particularly in baseball and basketball.
The rumour is the player's kick back 1% of their salary to the scorekeepers for the enhanced numbers.

Calderon must have been watching game film of Rondo before the Magic game. Picked up a few tricks and ended up with a near Rondo like statline :P
