Gotta say… I don't like this quote from Ray Allen today:
“That’s now the blueprint on how to beat us, so we just have to counter that,” Allen said. “Put a big guy on (Rondo) and just force him to shoot.”
I'm not sure if Ray is doing this as a way to send Rondo a message through the media. Ray is a pretty smart guy… and if he's saying something like that to a reporter, you can bet he's said it to Rondo. As a fan, I certainly find it frustrating… but if this is Ray's way of getting a message through to Rondo, then I'm all for it.
Of course, Rondo has a bad game the day after I make an empassioned plea for more All Star votes.
