Mark Price is Right for Rondo

In an interesting tidbit posted to Celtics Blog, they report information from CSN that Rajon Rondo worked on his jumper all summer with Mark Price in Atlanta.

Rondo practiced his jump shot with former Cav Mark Price.

Rondo practiced his jump shot with former Cav, Mark Price.

Former Providence coach Tim Welsh said on CSN that Rondo went to Atlanta and worked with Mark Price on his shooting all summer. Welsh said before Rondo was a bad shooter and now he is an average shooter. Apparently Rondo has corrected the flaw in his shooting form.

Welsh said Rondo worked out every day all summer with Price and that he’s keeping his elbow in now. Welsh expects him to take many jumpers in preseason to get his confidence down.

Rondo, who’s form has always been a bit awkward, struggled with jump shooting and foul shooting. His notoriously cockeyed elbow issue has, supposedly, been corrected and Rajon has shown an improvement in his touch. Celtics Blog reported that Rondo is expected to shoot more often during pre-season to work up his confidence.

This is excellent news, even if Rondo just shoots more often, improving his field goal percentage by a few percentage points. The mere fact that Rondo is not continuously passing up open jump shots should help the Celtics offense. Throughout his career, Rondo has been a liability on offense when given the open jumper.

Team’s constantly sagged off him, I would often find myself screaming at the TV, “SHOOT IT!”

Even if he missed sixty percent of the time, the fact that he shot the ball and made it forty (+) percent would eliminate the opposing defense from sagging off and clogging the lanes, haulting the offense.

So, Rajon, keep practicing. Mark Price is a great mentor and KEEP SHOOTING when your open!
