I don't know what Doc is looking at but I'm going by what I see on the floor which is why I posted the example.

Are you trying to say your opinion has more validity than a former NBA player who's actually coached Rondo for 5 years? You don't know what Doc is looking at? None of us here know what you're looking at, or talking about.

Puff puff, pass....puff puff, pass....

Ok let me try this one more time

The Celtics were up by 4 with 1:34 left in game 5 and Rondo had the ball in his hands. The shot clock was running down and Rondo was confused as to what to do so instead of driving to the basket and drawing a foul and possibly increasing the lead to 6, Rondo just stands still and launches up a jumpshot which he missed giving the Heat another opportunity to cut the 4 point lead to 2 or 1 point. Most PG's in that situation would know that they need to get more points and that the best way to do that is drive to the basket instead of settling for a long jumpshot.

Tony Parker in that same situation drives to the basket.

Didn't read. Now let me try this one more time......

A random Basketball forum poster, widely considered a joke by other forum members for the hilarity and ridiculousness of most of his posts, believes that his opinion on the IQ of a player, trumps that of a former NBA player who has coached Rondo for 5 years and sees him in games and practice every day for 8 months a year. But yet TVSG, OF ALL PEOPLE, thinks his opinion carries more weight than Doc Rivers. L O L. Since you seem to know what to do in those situations moreso than Rondo, why is he in the NBA, and you're on here spouting nonsense? This is the same dude who wants to fire every head coach who has a bad coaching game, or series. Hey TVSG, the Spurs lost. FIRE Gregg Poppovich immediately!!!

Puff puff, pass......

Did you take any notes on the night he scored 44 points, 10 assists ,8 rebounds, and 3 steals? How is it that you take notes, but don't have a clue what you're talking about? Strange....

Complete toss up. Both are great guards and among the biggest draft day steals in history (both late first rounders). As I Kentuckian I am obligated to select our native son Rondo, who is arguably the best NBA player from Kentucky in decades.

Not if he continues to

1. Turnover the Ball

2. Missing layups

3. Missing foul shots

4. Missing wide open jumpshots
