Quantcast

A couple of weeks back, in an interview with Maxim Magazine, Charles Barkley made news with what would obviously be a controversial statement regarding today's NBA:
We’d kill these little girly teams they’ve got today. Come on. The Miami Heat, the best team today, they make Roy Hibbert look like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

This week, however, according to Celtics Insider A. Sherrod Blakely he's offering praise and it's aimed toward Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtic rebuild:
"The Celtics are building for the future," Barkley said in conference call on Thursday to promote TNT's coverage of next week's All-Star weekend of activities in New Orleans. "[Rajon Rondo] is trying to get comfortable and work on his endurance. Danny Ainge is doing a fantastic job. They’ve got some good players, a bunch of draft picks, so I’m not worried about Rondo and the Celtics this year.”

If the last two games are any indication Rajon Rondo is definitely starting to find his groove. In victories over the Magic and 76ers Rondo has averaged 13.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and most impressively 10.5 assists in just under thirty minutes per.

As a comparison point the injured Chris Paul is leading the league in assists at 11.2 in 34.6 minutes per game.
