If you were to build around Rondo, it would have to be like the Cavs built around LeBron. Fill out the supporting cast with players that would help minimize his weaknesses and plays to his strengths. But as seen in Cleveland, that method doesn't lead to championships.
I used to be an avid supporter of Rondo and not wanting to trade him, but after seeing this team play without him, I'm definitely in favor of trading Rondo if that ends up being the situation.
