I love the move… but I wonder where people think he's going with the ball?
I love the old skool fake behind the back pass – Its very effective to freeze the D’ and bam see you later 2 pts. Rondo’s development is still in progress – I wish he would be more confident in his Jumper especially on the Road. He seems a lot more comfortable shooting J’s at home. Hey John when do you think Rondo will stop hesitating on his J’s? I think our C’s will unstoppable if Rondo can start hitting J’s.
In the last clip, Rondo’s fake was in the direction of a shooter waiting in the wing… you can see the defender immediately moving to cover that wing guy. It’s an effective move he’s got there.
I think the recent 2nd Nets game may have marked Rondo’s turning point with the jumper. He hit 2 of 3 in that game, and then a bunch more vs. the Suns… something he has not done all year. I think the coaches have been working on it with him, and we’re seeing the results now. We’ll know soon if it’s a real change… I think it is.
But RR’s jumper is only 1/2 of what we need. The other is a reliable big, because Perk’s not likely to make it to the end of the season with that ridiculous shoulder of his.

Haha, awesome dude. I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. He’d even float through a defender with those 24 foot, two-handed, double pump dunks!
