    Holy Rajon Rondo, Batman!

    Can we finally put Rondo in the conversation with the best young point guards in the league. I'm a total homer and I've loved the way he plays since he was a rookie so I'm biased, but other than Chris Paul I'm not sure I'd want anyone running point for my team more than Rondo.

    He had a nice game.
    I think there is a certain board member who can,and probably will, make a case for Devin Harris as to being one of the top PGs in the game.

    Chris Paul, Steve Nash, Deron Williams. This is the top tier IMO.
    Of course these are the most well rounded true point guards so I am biased in that category. I still think John Stockton is the best PG ever and ahead of Magic.

    Great game by Rondo tonight. Can't complain about a triple double. Its hard to put up those kind of numbers with all the studs he plays with.

    I agree on Stockton. I took Nash out of my top tier because I was just thinking young point guards, but overall in the league he is still up there.

    Rondo has shown himself to be a solid guard but its difficult to get a great assessment of him because he is only the 4th option at best on that team. He runs the offense well and I think its difficult to say he a top tier PG based solely on the fact we dont know how he would perform without 3 superstars around him.

    almost a triple 15 though is just filthy.

    How does being the 4th option on a team hurt a point guard? The job of a point guard is to distribute the ball and get easy shots for everyone else. The fact that he has upped his scoring a little, but does it efficiently (16 points on 5 for 10 shooting) is exactly what he needed to do. He's keeping three stars happy, contributing his own scoring efficiently, is a very good rebounding point guard, and play phenomenal defense.

    I never said it hurt him, its just hard to judge him.

    Great game, but I would still take Deron Williams over Rondo. At this ponit it is not even close

    a PG with KG, Allen and Pierce.... 3 guys who get all the attention and a PG who can fly under the radar. Im sure he is good.... but Id think any PG could run that team.

    It is. Pierce has said when Rondo is on the team is unstoppable. If you watch the games he is now part of the mix when they are sitting together talking on the bench.

    Pierce is right. He is a dynamic Point Guard and very exciting to watch, just like KG, Pierce, and Allen
