Rajon Rondo and Ben Affleck have the same problem. It’s called the “yeah, but…” syndrome. This disease forces someone to bring up a person’s shortcomings whenever they are complimented. Here’s an example. Imagine you’re talking with friend and Affleck comes up.
You say, “ Hey I just saw Argo. It’s fantastic. Ben Affleck has totally established himself as one of the best directors in Hollywood today.”
Your friend replies, “Yeah, but wasn’t he in that terrible movie Reindeer Games? I can’t take him seriously.”
Now pretend you are talking about basketball. You say, “Rajon Rondo is the best player on the Celtics and the team will be better with him in a leadership role.”
Your friend replies, “Yeah, but doesn’t he shoot like 60% at the free throw line? I still can’t take him seriously.”
Affleck has done his share of terrible movies. And Rondo does make mistakes. He recorded a personal worst 3.6 turnovers per game last year. You can’t completely write off that number or
