People Who Don’t Like the Rajon Rondo Move Don’t Get the Bulls


I understand Rajon Rondo has had a lot of issues with coaches and whatnot, but this deal makes sense to me.

Look at all the hate…

The future in RONDO’s hands? You guys forget about Jimmy Butler? The best player on the Bulls by far? Nice FOX Sports…

OK Sports Illustrated… If he’s coming at too high of a cost at $14 million a year for 2 years, when the second year isn’t even guaranteed, I don’t know what your reasonable cost may be…

You want to know what’s not reasonable? Investing nearly $40 million this year in Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah and expecting different results than losing to LeBron in the playoffs. Those two saw it almost every year…

You want to know what’s not reasonable? Investing $18 mil/yr for 4 years on Luol Deng, who is 31 years old and has never been a true X-factor on any team(sure he’s a threat, but he’s no franchise player)… The last award he’s gotten in the NBA is All-Star honors 3 years ago… When he was in his prime. 3 teams and almost 4 years later, things have changed.

What about Dwight Howard making $23.5 mil/yr these next three years with the Atlanta Hawks? The guy who has been on three teams in five years with absolutely nothing to show for it… The guy who has been known to be a cancer on any team he plays for. All of a sudden $14 million for one year, maybe two, doesn’t sound like too bad of an investment.

When I see Rajon Rondo, I see a guy that averages a double-double, a guy is going to look to pass the ball to Jimmy Butler out wide, or Robin Lopez down low, drive when he has to, and overall, a guy with one of the highest basketball IQs in the game.

He’s a second coach on the floor. The good news is there aren’t any big egos on this Bulls team for him to get under anyone’s skin and expect things to blow up. Jimmy Butler is a quiet guy, Fred Hoiberg is an unproven coach, and other than that everyone else has a pretty mild attitude now that Joakim is gone.

But I guess it doesn’t even matter anymore…

We’re fighting over whether a 2-year, $28 million contract is worth it for RONDO when Durant just signs with the Warriors. The NBA sucks man…
