    OK, so other than trying to prove to myself I am capable of saying nice things about a player I’ve loathed many years, I’ve recently been floating an idea in my fickle mind that is extremely contradictory to my season-long position on the matter: is there value in retaining Rajon Rondo next season rather than investing over $90 million on an a average starting point guard?

    Weird, I know. By proposing such a theory, I probably just lost 90 percent of the people who clicked on the link, who are now cursing themselves for wasting 15 seconds of their day. For the few remaining folks that haven’t yet completed setting alight their laptop, just hear me out.

As dismissive as it may be, it also has worth.
