Is Rondo Altering The State of The N.B.A.?

Yesterday after LeBron James' listless performance against the Boston Celtics that put his legacy and time as a Clevaland Cavaliers member in jeopardy, the focus wasn't on the one player that's sending chaos through the city of Cleveland today, Rajon Rondo.

Rajon Rondo has quietly developed into one of the best point guards in the N.B.A. and has a killer instinct necessary to lead veterans to the promised land. Everyone forgets that this young man is a championship point guard who has developed under Doc Rivers as coach and Kevin Garnett as the team leader. Rondo has skills that can't be taught, and if the Celtics defeat the Cavaliers tonight in game 6 of this 7 game series, it will because of what Rondo has done to the Cavaliers. LeBron James is a great player, but justifiably his mental toughness is being questioned. Tonight's game either will continue the LeBron James quest for a championship, or cement Rondo's continued ascension as an elite player.
