Happy to see Boston get the win over Charlotte, even without the Big 3. Rondo's a fucking BEAST!
If Boston would have lost even without their top players that would have been tremendicly embarassing; Charlotte is a damn mess and we all know it. How often do we see a teams winning record lower than the team that holds the best record in the NBA losing record?
On the topic of the Celtics, Rondo has 10+ assists in the past twenty-one consecutive games, I love it. Rondo has plenty of downsides IE: His free throw shooting, his 3-point percentage is a 21.6% and completely inconsistent and he simply cannot be depended on to close games. But to get a double-double points to assists out of him so often is such a gift.
Imagine if Rondo had a bit of Westbrook/Rose(whomever is your favourite scoring PG for arguements sake) it would be absolutely insane. Just a bit of food for thought, but I will leave this topic on this: We wouldn't have the play maker that is Rondo today without Doc Rivers. I wouldn't go as far as saying Rondo is a Peyton Manning on the court, but like many College Basketball Analysts like to say, Rondo is an extension of Doc Rivers and in the case, to the maximum.
I can't wait to see the Playoff Tree come April 26th.
Now that the Hornets finally have an owner who isn’t every other NBA owner, it’s time for the association to pay up. The 2014 All-Star Game will be held in New Orleans, which hasn’t hosted it since all the way back in 2008.
While NO getting yet another ASG is part of Tom Benson’s deal (along with offseason renovations to the New Orleans Arena), the NBA has settled into a nice little Florida-New Orleans-Texas-Arizona-California rotation.
Stern already has Davis gift wrapped for NOH
Also nice to see Toronto catching up with us in wins
