    Default Rondo is nothing more than a back-up

    I don't see how anyone thinks otherwise if you actually watch him.

    Rondo is not a backup: there are times where he takes over the game, he's great on defense, and he one of the best point guards at setting up people with an assist. One improvement that would make him even greater, is if he can improve his jumper and free throws.

    What makes him different than Kidd at 38? He passes to good shooters, they make the shots, he rebounds, etc. He also probably gets defended more than Rondo.

    Remember when Anthony Carter finally was put in to guard Rondo in Game 4? Rondo couldn't do anything.

    Who's he making better? Ray Allen? Kevin Garnett? Pierce?

    You're not a top PG, or even a starter when the game plan is to not defend you. I do think he's a good player, that's it. Doesn't impress me usually.

    I'm not a fan of Rondo, but he is good enough to start.

    You don't need a flashy player to run the point. You just need someone who can pass the ball, defend, and score when the team needs him to.

    I'm a fan of 20+ point per game scoring guards, which is why I was a fan of guys like Marbury, Francis, Iverson, Arenas, Nash, etc. It's entertaining seeing small guards try to maneuver their way around centers and power forwards for lay ups and jump shots.

    But you don't need those kind of point guards to win a championship.

    The Lakers won 5 titles with Derick Fisher running the point, and the Heat had a washed up Gary Payton when they won the title in 2006. And the Celtics had Rondo when they won the championship in '08.
