Yeah, yeah… last night's loss sucked. But as Chuck just said, we can't walk around cutting ourselves all day. Besides, there will be plenty of time for that later.
No… right now we're going to have some fun. And of course, the way things are going right now, we can only have fun with one player on this team: Rajon Rondo.
In the first half of last night's game, he was unstoppable. I made the comment on Twitter that Rondo was by far the best player on the floor, and that he was putting on a clinic. Matt Moore of Hardwood Paroxysm (@HPBasketball on Twitter) turned right around and suggested "The Clinic" as a nickname for Rondo.
In that moment, the nickname was born. It's gotten a fair amount of support so far… and we love it. so we're going with it.
Rajon Rondo is "The Clinic"… because he could put one on at a moment's notice.
I'm sure some of you won't like it. I've already heard the "he needs to shoot jumpers and free throws better" or "he needs to be more consistent before you can call him that."
Meh. I don't care. He can dominate games for long stretches without that… and he's only going to get better. He's a walking basketball clinic… so that's what we're calling him from now on.
If any of the Celtics happen to be reading… let's make this work!
