Considering the way the Celtics are abusing the Sixers tonight, it might be a good time to go read what Solzy’s written on Rondo.
“In his second year in the league, he led them to the NBA championship so he’s played above expectations, I think, at an early stage,” Smith told me in a phone interview. “I thought he’d be this type of player but I didn’t know he would be this good this early in his career. He was a guy that when he was drafted, people thought they weren’t even sure what type of pro he would be. Now he ends up being an all star. He’s been an all star multiple times and one of the best point guards in the NBA.”
