I thought it was 6-10... where did you get 7-2 from? He has huge hands, like Michael Jordan or Elton Brand, where he shoots free throws with just one hand (mostly with his palm). He's only 6-2, 6-3 tops. He's very quick laterally... what concerned me... was how easily Marcus Williams penetrated late in the NCAA tournament by him.
He's definitely one of the best defensive point guards in the draft, possibly in a decade.
He still makes poor decisions at times defensively, gambles for steals, etc. BUT, all the tools are there.
As far as D-ing up Williams, I would say first of all, that really good point guards are almost impossible to consistently shut down 1 on 1 these days. On the flip side, I've never seen anyone stop Rondo from penetrating when they decided to challenge him.
Also, with 30 seconds to go in that UCONN game, Rondo played tough D on Williams, blocked his shot, but got called for a foul. JMHO, but I thought Rondo got the job done there and the ref bailed Williams out.
Anyway, you might be talking about the two best pgs available, so I'm not sure how big of a knock this is on Rondo. I think both of those guys will be excellent pros, but Rondo is just more of a a physical freak than Williams.
