Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni isn't impressed by Rajon Rondo. Here are his comments, courtesy Ken Berger of CBS.
On downplaying Rondo's influence on Game 3, D'Antoni said, "He's a very good basketball player. Really good. " But, there was a but …
D'Antoni on Rondo: "I'd like to see him play on Minnesota and see how he does. … They've got three Hall of Famers out there."
Probably not a smart thing to say right before an elimination game, but D'Antoni has proven he's no genius.
And to be honest, he has a valid point. Rondo has been blessed (Easter has me in a holy mood) with three future HOFers as teammates. With or without those guys, I believe Rondo has the natural talent to be a top 5 point guard. If he did start his career in Minnesota, he might be further behind in his development but he'd still be a helluva player.
