Video: Derrick Rose Crosses Rajon Rondo

If DRose wasn’t breaking Rondo‘s ankles, he was swooping in to watch Rondo miss bunny layups. Not a great night for the Cs.

    That old Rose vs. Rondo debate that peeps used to have on here seemingly daily is starting to look sillier and sillier…

  • Maynor G

    DRose is just S.I.C.K!! Slipping In Creating Kills

    please stop… this isn’t normal

  • rob

    he didn’t break Rajon’s ankles, he broke his waist. Ouch.

    that was straight sickness. reminded me of Stef when he first came in the league with the finish, nice wrap around in traffic. sexy.

  • slamfan4life

    holycrap that dude is quick…………nice try, Rondo

  • greg

    he moves so well in that pocket of defenders inside its really nice to watch

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Rondo is just as quick. He’s just not as good. It’s obvious that Rose has developed his game more to this point.
    When they matched up Rose’s rookie year, Rondo was a defending champion and beat the rook based on his vet saavy. He clearly won the matchup.
    But, Rose has developed his game, and his experience has grown. Rondo has more experience, but what does he actually do better now? That’s the big difference.
    If two players both gain experience and saavy, but one also develops his skillset, then that player is going to win the invdividual battle, particularly when the gap between the skill level on their teams is reduced.

    what has rondo improved? his assist and rebounding numbers, you know something a true point guard does.

  • Shadojoker

    damn Rose..don’t be soo mean!! but Chi-town please STAND THE F*** UP!! thats what i’m talking about..all haters that i’ve been seeing on these posts can eat bird & die!

    What an amazing season this guy (Derrick Rose) is having! (and I’m a Boston Celtics fan and I was hating on him back in july) but if u are a true Basketball fan, u can’t help but take your hat off to this guy.
    All I hope 4 now is 4 the Bulls 2 have a nice playoff run (at least ECF) or this will be a waste like the past Cleveland Cavaliers reg. season exploits.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Is he really a better passer? Or, has the entire team had more years to work in the same offense, and grow comfortable with their roles?
    Don’t you watch the game and see Rondo pass up clear baskets to get another assist? Isn’t he avoiding shots he should be taking to keep the defense honest and make the game easier for his team?
    I think a “real” point guard should be able to shoot free throws and jumpers. And, he shouldn’t spend the game gambling in the passing lanes instead of staying in front of his man.
    Rose is the better player, he’s more skilled and more talented, and he’s rapidly gaining on Rondo when it comes to saavy.

    A true point guard rebounds and assists…. But Rose is averageing what, 8 assists to Rondo’s 11? And then double his points… Rose wins hands down. He fully deserves MVP this year.

  • Ben Ireland

    Now all we need to do is bring him to the Knicks… Make it happen, Walsh !

    Now bring him to the Knicks… Make it happen, Walsh !

  • 1982

    Forget Rondo, DRose should be able to take Pierce’s nickname.

  • Drew

    Celtics got *UCKED UP last night!!

  • JTaylor21

    AllenP, damn can you at least wait until they play in the playoffs before you start proclaiming one is way better than the other?

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    I’ve been proclaiming it since early this year.
    Point blank, I’m not a Rondo fan. I don’t like point guards who absolutely cannot shoot. I feel that flaw is easily correctable with work, and when a player doesn’t improve that area of his game, I had a serious issue with him.

  • andynorstrom

    Allenp just took Riggs to town yo.


    IF I want/need a point guard I take Rondo over Rose everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. IF I want/need a shooting guard I take Rose over Rondo everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. SMHLOL

  • http://www.slamonline.com c_cantrell

    Allenp, i feel ya man, if a point guard is going to have to ball in thier hands more than any other player on there team through out the course of a game then they need to develop thier shot. And if they dont develop a shot within 3 or 4 years especially (like rondo hasn’t). It is very aggravating especially when you look at how good the celtics could potentially be and how they could wreck damn near any defense if rondo could just shoot the rock.

  • http://nobulljive.com Enigmatic

    And IF you want to actually have a shot at winning a playoff series, you’d take pretty much any other coach over O’Antoni everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. ROTLMAOLOLSMHFTNYK

  • S_kemp

    Even as a huge Celtics fan that was sweet!

  • rob

    rose will kill rondo in the playoffs bye bye celts time is up and sorry to some of you celts fans a few of you seem nice enough but none the less its true.

  • BostonBaller

    I agree w/ AllenP and others about the shooting of a pg but RR is far from garbage. That was indeed a sweet highlight move but the “ankle breaking” was just a nice headline to get viewers. To truly break ankles you need to make your defender cross his legs like a woman sitting, fall, trip or stumble backwards…look up AI or Zeke. lol I’m not downing the move b/c it was nice and I watched it plenty of times SMH w/ laughter but it was what it was.

  • Wall Ball…

    This is the reason why Rondo quit Team USA last summer…lol
