Look, I would never have the audacity to even imply that Rajon Rondo isn't currently the most courageous man in the universe for attempting to play a basketball game with a hyper-extended elbow but can't we just maybe ease up on the hyperbole a little bit, guys. I mean, there are other people on the court doing some pretty impressive things. When the fuck did Marv and Reggie turn into Bill Russell and Tommy Heinsohn? The other night for instance, after Rondo cut through the middle and beat like three guys to give himself a wide-open lay-up on the left side of the hoop but layed it in with his right hand.
Reggie: OH MY GOD...I THOUGHT HE WAS GONNA LAY THAT IN WITH HIS LEFT HAND!!!!
Ummm...did you happen to see him cross-over dribble to his left hand perfectly and without even flinching just to get to the hoop that quickly, Reg? Furthermore, what was with the trainers carrying Rondo off the court after that happened? He had a dislocated elbow...not a knee! Do we really need to feed into the victim complex of the Boston sports fan anymore than it already has been? Have we not learned anything from Pierce's bullshit drama? I'd think as a fanbase, you'd eventually get to a point where you cease eating this shit up but...nope.
Of course, I'm not saying that Rondo is faking his injury, but maybe we can stop acting like he just ejaculated the second coming of Christ. Deal?
