Delonte West on Rajon Rondo: ‘He’s the best point guard in the world’
He’s (Rajon Rondo) the best point guard in the world right now."
Forgive Delonte West if he might be seeing things through rose colored glasses. His nickname is Redz. He’s part African-American and part Piscataway Indian. He is wearing green again and his personality has a color all its own. There are a lot of colors to Delonte West. He also has a negative to put far into the rear view mirror.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He’s the NBA’s best all-around point guard, but not the NBA’s best point guard.
Rajon Rondo is an excellent table-setter, capable of penetrating, distributing, defending, and leading. However, he’s not The Guy. He’s not the crème de la crème of lead guards.
Rondo’s shooting and free throws need work. Too often, opposing defences dare him to fire him away from the outside. And the Utah Jazz’s Deron Williams is a more complete player.
Still, the University of Kentucky grad is the straw that stirs the Boston Celtics’ drink. The green-and-white will go as far as he takes them in 2011.
If Rondo’s Celtics win a championship next June, he’ll be worthy of the ‘best point guard’ title.
