1. Rajon Rondo
Rajon Rondo is really unlucky. When cashed in with a five year deal from Boston, no one batted an eye. He was a very good NBA point guard that wasn’t quite elite. Over the last year, Rondo has put himself in the NBA’s best point guard conversation, except he’s stuck in that five year deal. While it’s not too terrible making $11 million a year, it hardly matches his on-the-court value. Without Rondo, it’s hard to say whether the Celtics are even a playoff team, let alone a championship contender.
