Marshall on Rondo's performance and postgame jacket
Wed, 9 May 2012|
Donny Marshall joins SportsNet Central to discuss Rajon Rondo's up-and-down performance during Game 5 and his opinion on Rondo's wardrobe after the game.
These the are battling insurance and that's our V analyst on the mark for joining us from these sports -- do you think Connecticut and Donnie. Rondo had that nice stretch at the end of game five we gave the Celtics an offensive boost and they've really needed it but he also disappeared at times just like everybody else. What frustrated you about Rondo -- game last night. Well I think the fact that Rondo you know he starts a game a certain way and sometimes in the middle levels off and you would expect that because of substitutions guys coming in off the bench matchup changes a little bit. When he goes back in the game it's almost like at times he tries to make up. For the lost time that he was out of the game which to me. Tells a story about his numbers you know when you shoot the boss and. -- times again before 22 times but you're not shooting the ball that well we've -- run another two games and Rose I'm just missing shots that I should normally -- hurt or normally do make. You know I'm not so sure about that I don't want that jump shooting Rondo I really don't and I stick by that. As long as I've been covering the Celtics I really believe this guy puts so much pressure on defense is getting to the basket. -- at times if he settled for jumps out to just playing into exactly what the other team is doing it may not may not be playing great defense so Rondo again. He shows us he controls. This team's destiny he controls his own -- the destiny as well repeat depending on what he does shooting getting to the basket are settling for shots he. He really is in control of those games. Yeah making he's so dangerous when he gets into it makes it his frustration show it after the game last night. He got I got into what the TNT camera men -- finally made his way to the party on he took a seat and you know his wardrobe a little bit questionable. As we take a -- Interesting jackets some other panels. And some strikes you Donnie had an interesting take on his wardrobe and actually so did the TNT guys they don't let them. And now. It's not flannel ball it's not -- was soft Flynn always the in state -- -- the dress code before the game. That's not plan. I don't know I don't know I don't know I don't know what to say but they didn't have about exactly yeah I hit it. -- -- I know you're gonna go there eventually you know I told you know other than those -- performances and it's. Our rights -- -- you might find a way out the most stylish guy that we had here at Comcast sports net and I mean that I like the jacket now that you've process fit and do you still feel the same way. You know I might be aging myself a little bit here but. But visions of the -- burglar comes to my enemy that that's the first thing I thought of when I got up this morning and I saw that jacket again. On a broadcast I thought about the hamburger which you know I hate. Fashion is it's a couple things it's brave it's risky and and its its confidence and that's exactly what Rondo is it shows that in the interesting thing is he has the same stylist as. Dwyane Wade I don't see Dwyane Wade weren't those jacket so it's really just one of those things Rondo feels -- You know I'm gonna I'm gonna stand out this is the way to do it you know what god bless errors on. Don't be surprised to see Gary ten lay out sporting a similar zebra. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- not I would say I refuse to work with a -- -- exacted on center next to me. I think funny.
