Did you watch last night's game? Did you see Rajon Pierre Rondo rack up 29 points, dish out 13 dimes and grab 18 boards? If you didn't, you must feel like a fool.

Last night's performance was on an almost subhuman level. Only two players before R2 have put up numbers like that in an NBA game. Two. One was Wilt Chamberlain, who once scored 100 points in a game and the other was Oscar Robertson, who once averaged a triple-double in a full season. Not Bird. Not Magic. Not Jordan. Not Kobe. Not LeBron. Just "The Big Dipper", "The Big O" and now Rajon "Ragin" Rondo. If you watched last night, you were watching Celtic history and, indeed, NBA history. Nothing more, nothing less.

Last night, Rajon Rondo carried the Boston Celtics. No matter what happens in this series (which, by the way, we could still win, provided Rondo has games like Game 4), Boston will have Rajon Rondo to build around when the Big Three is no longer there. He will be able to carry them if he just puts his mind to it. That was pretty obvious after last night. The future, my friends, is looking very, very bright.

    Love the title ACF. Pretty rare company with Wilt and Oscar. Two guys I'd like to see with Rondo post Big 3 are Amar'e and Iggy.

    Bailey's got a great column on Rondo's performance posting later tonight. Keep an eye out for it.

    I bet Michael Finley did that in a high school game lol.

    Great article ACF.

  3. Well done ACF. I agree with JR, great title!

    To be fair, it's not just the title that is great.

    I didn't realize Bailey was about to do a piece on Rondo (Which by far outdid mine). I never plan on when I will write something, I just do it as a spur-of-the-moment thing. I just wanted to share my feelings on R2's beautiful game :) Thanks for the words.

    Rondo is simply on another level. No matter what happens in the next games, you will always have reasons for hope, optimism and high spirits when you think of Rajon Rondo's game in the last 1 1/2 seasons...AMAZING RONDOOOOOOOO!
