He's definitely one of the top 5 most polarizing players in the NBA.

He's such a love or hate player.

Edit:forgot Durant. Maybe Dwight, but that's a huge maybe.

The question really was not stated clearly by the OP. I agree my answer is kinda off.

However, I am going to answer your question. I will admit it was tough keeping Rondo off this list.

Nine players better than Rondo currently.

Melo
Duncan
Kobe
Lebron
Durant
Paul
Dwight
Dirk
Wade

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

These guys are top 10??

No disrespect to dirk but how can you guys keep putting dirk there if he hasn't played at all this season.

Rondo is top ten Atm

I'd say he's about on the fringe, even though I personally would take him on my team over any other pg in the league. He seems to have garnered a lot of haters as of recently but when I watch this guy play I see a guy who can control a game better than any pg in the game

If you take last playoffs into account along with current play...

Lebron
Durant
Kobe
CP3
Howard
Melo
Westbrook
Wade
Rondo
Duncan/Parker

Rondo sucks in regular season but he steps up in the playoffs.

Default Re: Is Rondo a top-10 player?

He's in the second tier after the Lebron/Durant possibly CP3 and Kobe tier (personally I put those other 2 in the second tier right now).

Its a bit odd to cut it off at 10 in my opinion.

I dont know if I can put Wade and Dirk in the second tier. They have both been non existent or average this year and last year they were both really average last year.

You cant have 1 and a half years of average play and still be put in there with guys that have been elite the whole time.

I wouldn't put Bosh or Z-bo in there either.

So I guess he'd be top 10 then.

Don't like Rondo or the Celtics... but he's a top 10 player in the NBA right now without a doubt.
