Dwyane Wade Calls Rajon Rondo Best Point Guard He's Ever Played With

Published by Bleacher Report on Thu, 29 Sep 2016

With respect to Gary Payton, Mario Chalmers and Goran Dragic, Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade believes Rajon Rondo is the most talented floor general he's ever shared a backcourt with.Although the two haven't stepped onto the floor together for a regular-season game since joining Chicago in the offseason, Wade told reporters Wednesday that Rondo is the "best point guard I've ever played with," according to CSN Chicago's Chuck Garfien.Wade hasn't played with a point guard of Rondo's caliber before. Payton was 37 years old and well past his prime when he joined the Miami Heat prior to the 2005-06 season, while Chalmers lingered off the ball with dominant forces such as Wade and LeBron James in tow.A strong case could be made for Dragic, but he's averaged more than five assists per game just four times in eight seasons.That leads us to Rondo, who has led the NBA in dimes three timesincluding last year, when he dropped 11.7 per contest to push his career average to 8.7.While Rondo may not be prolific when it comes to scoring or shooting the rock, he distributes it in a way few others can.The floor generalgenerated 27.1 points per game via his assists last season2.4 more than second place John Wall. The 30-year-old also passed the ball 74.2 times per gamewhich topped the league by nearly three per game.Rondo's15.8 assist-to-pass percentageranked third among players who appeared in at least 50 games last season. The only ball-handlers with superior marks were Russell Westbrook (17.8) and Chris Paul (16.1).Rondo has long been regarded as one of the league's most cerebral players as well, and it's been clear throughout the start of training camp that the point guard's basketball acumen has impressedWade and his new teammates."Hes super smart. He really sees things before they even develop out there on the basketball floor, so it makes everybodys job a lot easier," Jimmy Butler said, per CSN Chicago's Vincent Goodwill. "And not only is he leading the team on offense, but hes constantly talking on defense, so hes letting everybody know where they have to be."The Bulls have plenty of questions to answer regarding how their offense will space the floor and pressure defenses with Rondo, Butler and Wade, but the point guard's ability to seamlessly direct the offense should mask some problems as the team seeks to return to the postseason after missing out last year.
