Visibly fading LeBron >>> current Rondo. If you can't understand this, we can't help you.Gooner wrote:And third, we all know that Rondo is a playmaking genius.
Okay, do you have any numbers to back this up? Looking forward to the gymnastics on this one.
I really have to question what you get out of posting in this thread, like I'm legitimately curious. You're not influencing anyone. Your arguments fall apart with the slightest bit of scrutiny and when they do, it's either ignoring the meat of the rebuttal, or crying 'I don't care about your xyz stat'.
If you were to come in with logical takes backed by numbers, you'd find posters happy to discuss. Instead, we're supposed to entertain Rondo over LeBron to be the playmaker because of one series in 2012 and how he's a 'playmaking genius'.
I think there are much better ways to spend your life Gooner.
I never said Rondo is a better player than LeBron. I think it's logical that if you have a player on your roster, you use him in a optimal way, that's all. What type of numbers do you want? Assists? Rondo is very high in that category. I'm not crying about anything, I just don't care about advanced stats, I don't follow them, and I've exposed their distractive nature many times by using concrete examples. Show me any stat you want, and I'll show you why it doesn't mean anything. I can see waht's going on with my own eyes, I don't need any extra (dis)information.
And one big problem about LeBron playing point guard is of physical nature, and everybody seems to ignore it. He is risking a very serious injury by playing that way at this stage of his career, at 35 years old. That's one more reason to just let Rondo do his job. Remember, that's what he was brought for, and LeBron said he hand picked all those guys. He also said that he wanted play off the ball last season. Now he wants to be a pure point guard. Quite a turnaround.
