It would have been nice to see Chris Paul playing along side Paul Pierce. It would have added another person who can create his own shot, and it would take a little weight off of Pierce’s shoulders as well. I am still happy with Rondo, but he needs a better shot and free throw. Last season his free throws were at 52% and he averaged two free throws a game! His percentage needs to go up to at least 70%. I am also a little worried that the trade rumors might affect Rondo’s play next season. Rondo is a sensitive person and we all saw what happened last year when the Celtics traded his buddy Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City. I think the idea that Rondo was up for a trade will upset him, but I think Danny Ainge will handle this situation fairly well.
