Default Mavericks actually outscoring Rockets with Rondo off the court



Hope Carlisle has the balls to just sit him out.

What a ****ing joke. Even with Parsons and Harris not playing or playing hurt... We've still had good chances to win both games.

All Rondo had to do last night was play average and we win. Instead that mental midget **** quits off the jump.

Thanks Rondo... Just like Odom. Needed 80% of what they are capable of and they give you nothing.

He really needs to be surrounded by two spot up shooters, guys who like to back door, and come off screens.

And some reliable big men.

Send him to Sacramento. Hed never go for it, but I think itd be a good fit.

Cuban should have known better than to get Rondo. He's not a good player now and honestly never was, kid was carried by the big 3 who inflated his stats. He's got borderline D league talent

How anyone thought this was a good deal to begin with is beyond me.

When Rick Carlisle, one of the best basketball minds in the game, tells you he doesn't want a negative like Rondo on his team, you don't go and trade for him.

Mavs rented him for a season, got worse, and ended up losing two fine role players in the process.

That said, it's not all Rondo. Ellis is playing like complete shit also.

Devin Harris is probably having a better season tbh.

They basically lost Wright and Crowder for nothing, at least Jameer Nelson could shoot the three ball. Should have put Ellis as the primary playmaker imo

Stop it. He's just not good anymore. Pre ACL Rondo was a beast, but a cancer. This Rondo is terrible and still cancerous.

Nah. Rondo just needs more minutes. He's a proven playoff commodity. *smirks*

He's not good. He was decent when surrounded by hall of famers who all are elite shooters who play great team ball. Anywhere else his lack of shooting is exposed...it ****s up the ENTIRE offense.

Well, we had to trade Wright and Aminu is flat out better than Crowder.

We had no chance to win with our previous roster.


Clearly we should have not made this trade, but we had to make a trade for a point and it's not easy to find what we needed.

We took a chance and it didn't work, but it didn't hurt us long term or anything.
