Rondo Getting All Fake-y

I love the move… but I wonder where people think he’s going with the ball?

  1. I love the old skool fake behind the back pass – Its very effective to freeze the D’ and bam see you later 2 pts. Rondo’s development is still in progress – I wish he would be more confident in his Jumper especially on the Road. He seems a lot more comfortable shooting J’s at home. Hey John when do you think Rondo will stop hesitating on his J’s? I think our C’s will unstoppable if Rondo can start hitting J’s.

  2. In the last clip, Rondo’s fake was in the direction of a shooter waiting in the wing… you can see the defender immediately moving to cover that wing guy. It’s an effective move he’s got there.

    I think the recent 2nd Nets game may have marked Rondo’s turning point with the jumper. He hit 2 of 3 in that game, and then a bunch more vs. the Suns… something he has not done all year. I think the coaches have been working on it with him, and we’re seeing the results now. We’ll know soon if it’s a real change… I think it is.

    But RR’s jumper is only 1/2 of what we need. The other is a reliable big, because Perk’s not likely to make it to the end of the season with that ridiculous shoulder of his.

  3. I know man Perk’s shoulder really concerns me. Its very fragile – All it takes is another defender slapping at his arm and he’ll re-injure it again. And yes I agree we need another big and a shooter. We can’t keep playing small ball and expect good results – so far so good but it ain’t going to fly in the playoffs.

  5. He must’ve copped that from Magic Johnson’s special move from Lakers vs. Celtics and the NBA playoffs on Sega Genesis. Now if only he had learned Tom Chambers’ patented 2 handed dunk from the 3 point line . . .*

    * hopefully a couple of people know what I’m babbling about

    Haha, awesome dude. I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. He’d even float through a defender with those 24 foot, two-handed, double pump dunks!
