Rajon Rondo’s Sunday Night Scratching Post

20120226-230939.jpg

That will probably be the last All-Star game in a long time to only feature one NBACat. With tons of #FutureNBACats on the way and the current crop of young NBACats already in the league, there is a strong possibility this game will feature at least 3 NBACats, and likely more, for the next 10 years. Guys like Demarcus Cousins, John Wall and Rajon Rondo are all All-Star caliber players who stand a good chance of being selected next year. Brandon Knight and Enes Kanter are both showing a lot of promise, and given the right situation I could easily see one or both of them making an All-Star team during their careers. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist both look like future All-Stars, and guys like Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad (assuming we get both of them) certainly appear to have the talent to become All-Stars. That’s 7 NBACats and 2 #PossibleFutureNBACats who all stand good chances of making multiple All-Star games. So while tonight’s game might only have featured Rajon Rondo playing limited minutes, there might come a day where we have 5, 6, even 7 NBACats playing in the All-Star game. To me it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.

Rajon Rondo All-Star Game Recap

I was a little disappointed that Rondo didn’t get more minutes tonight, but I guess the writing was on the wall. Point guards rule today’s NBA, and there were a sh*t load of them playing in tonight’s game. There just wasn’t enough minutes to go around. Rondo wound up playing only 15 minutes, took just 3 shots, and finished with 2 points, 2 rebounds and 8 assists. As most All-Star games go, the players were more interested in avoiding injuries and making SportsCenter then actually playing a competitive game. Despite his limited minutes, Rondo did have a couple of nice plays, including this half-court alley-oop pass to Lebron James.

It was a wonderful weekend of NBACats basketball with a former UK player participating in almost every event. We got to see John Wall throw down some ridiculous dunks. We watched as Demarcus Cousins impressed Charles Barkley and Shaq. Brandon Knight even got in on the action, showing everyone why he is one of the best young point guards in the league. We had the pleasure of watching not one, but two of our boys compete in the Skills Challenge last night, and tonight we got to see Rondo play in his 3rd All-Star game. It’s only going to get better folks. Before you go, check out this crazy windmill dunk Rondo pulled off with some assistance from Dwight Howard during the All-Star practice earlier this afternoon, goodnight.
