Rondo's career is at an interesting crossroads. The moody jerk/savant has worn thin. Pierce and KG are on the way out and now it's time for Rondo to be the guy and a leader. He's shown flashes, but Rondo has never consistently ever been a truly GREAT player. Time to see if he ever will be.

Stockton easily. Rondo can't even shoot, he doesn't even has case for it.

Too bad he can't shoot from anywhere outside of 10 feet, is a stat padder, and a complete asshole to his own teammates. Guy is a prick

Who exactly is that comparing him to?

Magic, Oscar, Cousy, West, Frazier, Payton, Rose, Isiah, Timmy, KJ, Paul, Deron, Tiny, and on and on and on were all bigtime scorers....so...they dont count as "pure"?

Is this just Rondo vs...Stockton, Kidd, and maybe Lenny Wilkens or something? Ignoring that Kidd was a 20ppg guy at his best(back to back finals runs) and Lenny was shooting 18 times a game.

Who else is even a "pure" point?

We using "pure" to throw a lot of well rounded players out of contention?

Nash?

That it?

Rondo vs Stockton and Nash who are the only non bigtime scoring all time points?

If we even count Nash who was also an 18-19 a game scorer at his best....

Rondo is more "pure" because he overpasses in an underperforming(relative to talent) offense and isnt a very good scorer?

That what pureness is? Lack of scoring?

Rondo would probably pass up ***** to his teammates just to get an assist

Needs to follow the Kidd pathway to be truly great.

Pure PG simply means pass-first PG. Most of PGs are looking to score first, thats why its quite rare trait on elite level.

How well they run the offense is another question, Stockton did a great job, Nash/Kidd too, Rondo... not so much. Celtics offense literally improved with Rondo out, and with him its at the very bottom of NBA.

Rondo can play at superstar level (when he wants), but "Rondo ball" is a bad offense. Unlike other pass-first superstars, Rondo by himself doesnt know how to run the offense, so thats on Doc (and boneheadedness of Rondo).

Good answer.

Huge Rondo fan, but this is ridiculous. Why are we using these labels to try to fit players into boxes that they don't fit into? In what world would we consider Rondo and John Stockton similar types of PGs? Yeah, they're both pass first and they both pile up the assists, but literally everything else about them is different. Even the way they play D is different.

Stupid thread.
