Reading Lee Jenkins's story on Rajon Rondo was like tracking a maniacal basketball genius. Rondo's approach to the game and his abilities as a point guard are a sight to behold. While some may think the Celtics are winning in Rondo's absence because they feel unshackled from his dominance on the court, I think it is more a testament to the knowledge he passed on to them.

Out of His League
I do not understand the idea behind Fox's putting Gus Johnson at a microphone to call Champions League soccer (SCORECARD). Johnson admittedly knows next to nothing about the sport—about the rich history of the teams in international soccer or about their players. His brash, NBA style of play-by-play sounds awful and simply does not fit the bill.

Worse Coming to Worst
While I thought your use of movie titles to illustrate the Lakers' dire situation (Chaos Theory) was clever and interesting, a more appropriate title could have been extracted from an album by the comedy troupe Firesign Theatre: Everything You Know Is Wrong.

As Good As It Gets
Phil Taylor's column on Michael Vick (POINT AFTER) was spot-on. Vick has played quarterback in the NFL for 10 seasons, yet football experts talk about his potential as if he were still a rookie. How many times do we have to hear that he would be very effective if he could just get in the right system? The truth is, a player who has played as long as Vick has already shown who he is and what he is capable of. When the rushing option was taken away from Vick, he needed to throw the ball accurately, which he could not do.
