Not a top 10 player currently.

Will unlikely be a top 10 player/passer all time.

Top 10 passer currently? Sure.

Top ten passer all time, huh?

Never thought of such a list. Would be interesting because I'm not sure PGs would fill the entire list (off the top of my head: maybe Walton, Sabonis, Webber, and Bird would be in my top 10) and where does flash meet substance?

Pistol Pete could probably make any pass in the book, but you look at his assist total and it was low. You look at his turnovers and it was high.

Magic is my #1, tho.

That would depend on your criteria for top 10, if passing was high up on the criteria, he would be close.

I watched todays game and despite him having a near triple double 15-16-9 I just cant forget that he air balled an open shot just outside the paint.

When I read op I read: "Is Rondo (who is currently a top 10 passer) also a top 10 player overall?" but the posts above are throwing me off.

If that's the question, then yes; Rondo is a top 10 player currently.

Yeah the first response derailed the actual question. It's like you initially stated.

Lebron
Kobe
Durant
Melo
Rondo
Russbrook
CP3
Bosh
James Harden
Z-Bo?

I'd say he's easily top 10 with Rose out.

Absolutely. He's been the best PG in the league this season.

Default Re: Is Rondo a top-10 player?

a) players definitely better than him (5):

LeBron
Durant
Dwight
CP3
Kobe

b) players that are almost certainly better than him, but we need to see something from them (4):

Wade
Rose
Love
Dirk

c) other guys I'd put ahead of him (2):

Westbrook
Melo

d) jury is still out for various reasons (4):

Duncan
Randolph
Garnett
Bosh

e) Bynum is also better if he's healthy, but that's a huge wildcard at the moment; similar with Kyrie (2)

so...

a) 5
b) 4
c) 2 <--Rondo
d) 4
e) 2

so he's fringe top 10...personally I'd put him there because I think he's better than Melo (worse than Westbrook) and I'm not sold on Rose coming back at 100% (though I think Wade, Love, Dirk should all be fine),

Nope, most overrated PG in the game with Rondo and one of the most overrated players in the game.

Definitely top 10.

During the playoffs I would put him in the top 5.



He's the best point guard in the league (Better than Cp3 and Dwill) this season, and has shown he is better than the both of them in the playoffs as well.

He is underrated if anything. Him and Tony Parker has consistently gone further into the playoffs than anybody would expect. Rondo could probably average a triple double if he really wanted to.

Read the question, he was asking if he is a top 10 player now.
Name 9 players who are currently better than rondo please.

Lebron, Kobe, and possibly Melo and Dirk are the only 4 players I would consider taking over Rondo.
Edit:forgot Durant. Maybe Dwight, but that's a huge maybe.

Rondo is the only player that can come in and consistently wreck your favorite team but no one respects him. Yea he's a top 10 player right now
