Rondo for Curry..
Why hasn't this trade happen yet..to me it makes sense for both teams..
I know curry has had some ankle issues, but throw in two first rounder and bam.
The warriors have enough scorers and if rondo can bring his attitude to this warriors team it wil Benifit then greatly..
As for the celtics, it gives them the scorer they need to help support Paul pierce and Kg, so Avery Bradley can defend with curry scoring.. And let's give curry some credit and say hell know to get them HoFers thee ball..
Do you guys think this would be a good trade, why or why not?
To hear a lot of no takers from Celtics.... I mean Rajon is a quirky guy but easily a top 4 pg. Any way I am fairly sure that Warriors owe Jazz their first.
I got a negative cause I said this a crap trade... Yet who here thinks it good.... Strange
I'm not a Celtics fan but that trade proposal is absolutely stupid, why would the Celtics trade away Mr. Triple double for a guy who cant stay healthy and defend? Yeah curry is a great shooter and playmaker but so what? The warriors don't have a first round to give as Utah owns the rights to it
Stupid like the celtics trying to offer that at the beginning of the year? Because that's what they did..
And as I stated, Bradley will be the guard defender.. And how dare you say so what o currys shooting and PLAYMAKING ability.. What more does a point gaur need to do?? Especially because they have a team system already that will work perfectly for the clerics...
its a stupid deal by the celtics to begin with when they proposed that deal back then its still stupid now they dont need a scoring PG they already have a good pass 1st pg who can score when needed i think if they trade rondo it should be for a guy like cp3 or a rubio+lottery picks i think the reason why they proposed the deal to the warriors is to see how far they could push the warriors management on getting more than curry i think the original propsal involevd also david lee not for rondo alone but with a couple of guys as well included on a package deal with the warriors and kings i think that would send rondo,ray allen(bad contract),kevin garnett(bad contract also) that would send david lee to the kings while curry(warriors) and cousins(kings) to the celtics thats if kevin garnnet back then did confirm that he would want to stay with the celtics but this proposal was to get garnett to sign with the franchise for a long term deal
Ummm hello???? Playing defense is something a point guard has to do also, Rondo is an elite perimeter defender while curry is slightly average, the Celtics didn't offer this to golden state it was a rumor, the only trades Boston was trying to do last offseason was trading Rondo for Chris Paul or Russell Westbrook
I really believe Steph Curry will easily crack the top 10# pg, and eventually become a near top 5# pg in a couple years. Barring injuies. He will be the only pg that will have Steve Nash like shooting ability, also a solid playmaker. The Celtics wouldn't go for it though since they are making another run for a Championship. I mean Steph and two first rounders is a pretty good deal. If the team went full rebuild mode.
Rondo is the engine that keeps Paul Pierce and KG running. At their age they need someone spoon feeding them their offense. Maybe once those two retire they might consider trading him somewhere to start over...because Rondo is best suited on a contender, but I think they keep him to build around and maybe go out and try to get his buddy Josh Smith.
Well I didn't know that Utah owned the rights to their pick.
Steph is a stud, but his recent injuries would have anyone trading for him very nervous. Even if Steph had never been injured, Rondo's play in the playoffs has made him seem like a potential HOF. He has to be basically untradeable now even though the Celtics have never really seemed to fully appreciate him.
Abo&$#%#&@!ely not. Never in a million years would I trade Rajon Rondo for Stephen Curry. It just wouldn't happen. Rondo is way too important to that team. Rondo pretty much beats Curry in every possible category except for shooting/scoring. He's a better passer, rebounder, defender, and one of his greatest attributes is the fact that he is a leader of that squad.
He played with Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett, and he became the leader. Do you think Stephen Curry would come in and these guys (apart from Ray Allen) would listen to him? No. Rondo is a top 3 point guard, and he is Boston's franchise point guard. To me, he isn't tradeable.
This has to be the dumbest post of the year...why would you trade Rondo who is an all-star maybe HOF one day for a guy who twist and sprains his ankles every two games?? Thank God you are not a GM!
smh wow wow wow wow so ud trade one of the best players not just pg i mean players in the leage for someone who cant stay healthy hasnt even sniffed an all star game just wow i wouldnt even do it if the warriors had a lotto pick too boot on top of it rondo should be untouchable hes perfect too stay there and start the rebuilding process with when peirce and kg hang em up
You are crazy man,Rondo is a heart of C team,Curry isnt even a half player as a Rondo
Every year Danny Ainge attempts to deal Rondo. Many fans look at the stat sheet, but look at the damn game, Rondo is not that great of a pg. Ainge knows this, and after Pierce is gone, Rondo is not the player you can build around. Watch Rondo on fastbreaks, he always make bad passes. Dont be fooled by his fake behind the back pass and dish, thinking he did something amazing. Many of you here love the game, but arent players/coaches. I am not saying Curry is a much better player, but if Warriors were to offer up Curry, Ainge will listen.
Is filled with people who are such bandwagoners.. At the beginning of this year people were talking about rondo BARELY in the top 5 point guards and now people are saying he's one of the best in the league. Redonculous... Rondo has "injury problems" at the beginning of the year, and now everyone's back on the bandwagon.. In not saying rondo isnt a top 5 point guard in the league because he is top 3..but you guys say he's untouchable yet the celtics kept trying to trade him..and curry had an off year because of injures and everyone talks like this guy isn't a 20 7 4 guy..
I posted he is top 4 pg. Isnt top 4 or 5 one of best in league?
That is Rondo's team. He has more historic feats than any PG playing right now. Curry is not on his level. They would have to offer a lot more. Teams sometimes shop ideas just to see what teams would give its their job. Rondo will be a HOF playet when its all done. Him and Lebron have that holy grail game. Triple double machines. As little as Rondo is he had more than Lebron last year. Rondo is usually the shortest guy on the court. He plays 6'8. Bad deal unless you offering up way more.
Rondo is a better playmaker, defender, rebounder, and ball handler, who is also better at getting to the rim. Curry is a solid pg, but isn't anything special. He is slightly above average as a pg. I think Rondo is probably the league's fifth best pg. Curry may put up great offensive stats, but I am not sure he impacts the game beyond the stat sheet the way Rondo does. Plus, while Rondo isn't a great defender, Curry is a big liability on defense.
This is horrendous for the Celtics, Rondo is a top 3 pg and the C's NEED him as the piece to rebuild around when The Truth and KG retire, horrible trade, quitlife.
rondo is a hall of fame PG.... the end!
Rondo is probably a top 15-20 player in the L right now.
Refrain from posting in the future man, unless you're gonna start actually watching basketball and stop basing your opinion of players on PPG.
This is crazy...Can't be serious...Rondo might be the best player on that team right now... Besides KG he is the second most important player on the team. What he does for Boston Curry will not be able to do at all...
Rajon Rondo is a proven commodity at this point in his career. Even if he never becomes a consistent jump shooter and free throw shooter he's still one of the leagues best point guards.
Steph Curry is a big question mark due to his many injuries in the first years of his career. In my opinion, that's why the Warriors brought in Jarrett Jack because even though they hope Curry will be healthy, they know he's injury prone at this stage of his career.
Curry has looked good when healthy, but even at his best he isn't at Rondo's level at this point in his career. Curry would need to have multiple healthy years where he put up insane triple double numbers against the highest level of competition in the playoffs before Boston would even consider such a thing.
Rondo arguably the best PG of all time Curry not even in the top 150 players in the league ban this guy
The thing that makes this trade idea more even than it would appear is that a lot of NBA scouts and GMs consider Rondo to be the biggest team cancer in the league outside of DeMarcus Cousins. Boston won with Rondo under the Big 3 but now that it has become his team, his attitude has become a much bigger problem. If he was a great teammate, Ainge would never try to trade him. There is a reason he's ALWAYS trying to move him. Curry's ankles sort of even things out but as great a player as Rondo has become and as well as he played in the playoffs (incredible) there are major questions about his leadership and makeup that have many in the league spooked. If you are legitimately trying to build a winning team, Curry (assuming his ankle injuries don't kill his career) might be the better, team oriented player to build around in the long run.
Curry is not on his level.
