What people don't understand is that Rajon Rondo is a the definition of a TRUE POINT GUARD. He's the most unselfish guy in the NBA. He can easily go out there and score 20 points a game, but decides to make the players around him better for the bigger cause, WINNING.
When the entire Big 3 (Pierce, Garnett and Allen) were injured this year and last year, he stepped up and did all the scoring. He's one of the best defenders in the league as well.
He's already broken some of Bob Cousy's numbers. And he has a LONG career ahead of him. That's why, in my opinion, Rajon Rondo is the best player in the NBA.
