Quantcast

According to Gary Washburn at the Boston Globe Danny Ainge has been especially impressed with Rajon Rondo's progress and play since returning this season from right knee surgery:
“I think Rondo’s going to have a great year next year,” Ainge said. “I think he’s going to have the best year of his career.

Truthfully, Rondo's return this season has produced mixed results. He has been turnover prone but that's to be expected playing with an almost entirely revamped roster.

In fact, amongst "superstar point guards," even with his erratic play, Rondo is still second in the league amongst this sub-category of players at approximately a 3-1 turnover-assist ratio clip.

Chris Paul leads elite point guards at about a 4.5-1 ratio.

Tony Parker, whose Spurs will enter the playoffs as the overall number one seed, is producing a little better than 2.5-1 assist to turnover ratio on a nightly basis.

The other main issue seems to be the Captain's three point shooting where he is shooting 29 percent.

However, he has yet to have a full summer of conditioning and once that happens, as I've stated before, I think the absolute worst he will shoot next season is 35%

Objectively, he should be somewhere between 37 and 38% and when the Celtics get a legitimate pick and roll player for him to play with it will make him that much more dangerous.
