You're certainly welcome to believe that Rondo's entire game is simply a product of his playing with KG/Pierce/Allen... even though the players themselves have said otherwise... even though the coach has said otherwise... even though countless analysts/critics have said otherwise.

Bargs would probably avg. 25/gm playing with a PG like that. I would have thought that that alone would have sold you.
i posted in brackets about Boston's defense.

Bostons defense is one of the absolute best in the nba. that alone garners them finals/championship recognition.

And no it isnt easy for a team to collapse on Rondo, he has 3 great players with him who will make teams pay. But the successful teams are the ones who can do it. Which is exactly like I originally posted.

And Rondo weaknesses would be magnified here as we have jack shit on this team to make defenses pay. nothing.
