And he has never had a great defensive DBPM. In no world is that a starting point guard caliber player. I would give him one thing - he has brilliantly made himself relevant in circles and made bank this summer from the following:
Fouled the hell out of Lebron and KD until they got annoyed and destroyed him.
Think of it like this - Freaking Rondo averages the below and everyone thinks he is washed up:
9.2ppg, 8apg, and 5.3rpg and only makes 2.6 million.
I wouldn't go that far. He's not a top tier PG by any means, but he is a great fit with this roster in particular, and is better than you're giving him credit for. He's got a +8 net rating, is a positive in almost every lineup. He's also #11 among PG's in the NBA in RPM at 2.71 ahead of guys like Westbrook, Fox, Russell, Rubio, Murray, Hill. He's 6th in DRPM among PG's trailing only CP3, Hill, Lowry, Joseph and Derrick White. He's a specialist. He's basically a guy who's going to make decently smart reads, hit open 3's and get after it on D. He's also really good at not turning the ball over, so he's not killing you there. Based on the contracts we've seen recently he's still a relative bargain. I wouldn't go with counting stats for Rondo who hemorrhages teams on both ends in terms of metrics.
He is a point guard who cant score or pass and is merely good at threes but is more of the completely wide open type. He isn't letting it fly near a defender.
