Derrick Rose could score points in ANY offense/system. So how would that make Derrick Rose a "system point guard"?
Go have a seat.
Monta Ellis can score points in any offensive system. What is your point?
If Derrick Rose is the number 1 option on a team with average defense, his team will be mediocre at best.
The same way that if Kobe Bryant doesn't have Shaq or 2-3 seven-footers to bail him out, his team will be mediocre at best.
Rondo's teams were built to cater to his strengths? Are you really this dumb?
So after Rondo's rookie season, the Celtics' management said "hey, let's trade for Garnett and Allen so we can cater to Rondo's strengths" ???
Do you really believe that? If so, don't even respond to me.
Rondo developed his game based on his role on the team. He was the 4th or 5th most important player when that team formed. Over the years, he developed his game and transformed into the most important player on that team.
The Celtics did not "build a team to cater to Rondo's strengths."
