The Big Three in Boston is becoming the Unbeatable Four, fueling the perception now that the Celtics are on track to win yet another championship, ready to steamroll both Cleveland and Orlando on their way to the NBA Finals.
Point guard Rajon Rondo, once viewed with some skepticism, should be joining Boston’s All-Star trio this season, compensating for any steps his veteran teammates might be losing to age.
The Celtics (16-4) are back to where they were when they won the 2008 championship — except Rondo now makes them better.
I’ve got to say, I’m really liking Tim Povtak after this article. Not only does he advocate Rondo for All-Star, but he also writes the C’s are better than the 2008 championship version. I like, I like.
In my eyes, not only does Rondo deserve to be an All-Star, he also holds the title of best point guard in the Eastern Conference. Look around: The top competition is Gilbert Arenas, Devin Harris, Jameer Nelson, Derrick Rose and Mo Williams. If you ask me, Rondo has out-performed every single one of them this season.
But the really big question is, does Tim Povtak think Rondo would outrace Chris Johnson?
