Rajon Rondo, I Know Shooting Isn't Your Game, But Passing THIS Up? | Sharapova's Thigh

Rajon Rondo is not a very good shooter. That's a known fact. He's a sensational point guard and is as good as anybody in the league at setting his teammates up. On a team where he's surrounded by great talent such as Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen, he's a perfect fit. They don't need him shooting much; they just want him setting up the other players for success. And he does a great job of that.

But when you get wide open, very high percentage shots, you have to take them. Like, if you are dribbling on a fastbreak with the opposing team's players behind you, you take the ball to the basket, and either get the layup or at least draw a foul. With the Celtics down one point to the Grizzlies tonight and 2:40 to go in the game, Rondo passed up such an opportunity.

The Grizzlies would go on to win 90-87, and the Celtics fell a full game behind the Bulls for the #1 seed in the East.
