That sucks but Wade can play some de facto PG so long as you've got someone else defending IT.

This changes the whole series. The Bulls will be lucky to win another game in the series. Rondo has done a great job offensively and defensively.

Has anyone ever played with a broken thumb ? Can you tape it or something if it's your off hand ? lol

They aren't getting 4-0'd without rondo. They still have the rebounding advantage, the best player in the series, and Wade.

That's a surprise. This Bull's team is so weird, maybe the weirdest team ever.

Mcw is awful. Bulls have no chance

Noooooo. I have a feeling Rondo will play through it though. He's done so with a dislocated elbow for God's sakes.

The two games he had should secure himself another year in the NBA.

He's been huge for them. This is a huge loss. They really don't have another reliable PG at the moment.

Thank you once again RR!

Let's not celebrate player injuries shall we? DoM
Marcus Smart will go down as one of the greatest defenders in NBA history. Mark my words.

Well Rondo has been doing an amazing job controlling the pace, he has played well against Thomas, he adds to the rebounding, and more importantly his on court coaching. I can see the Bulls lose 4 straight.

It's pretty sad when you have to celebrate injuries since your favorite team is being exposed as the worst #1 seed of All Time.
