I think Rondo should be playing on team USA right now over D-Will. I think he is a better all around PG than D-Will. Rondo has a ring and been way more succesful than D-will has been for his team. Who disagrees?

There are a couple of reasons why Williams should be on the Olympic squad and I'm a HUGE Rajon Rondo fan.
The first is in international basketball you need shooters. Williams is of course a good outside shooter and much better than Rondo. As much as I love Rondo he's just simply not good at shooting the basketball from the outside.
The second reason is Rondo doesn't even want to play for Team USA. He's specifically said if he was asked to play he would tell them no. Do you really want Rondo on the team when he doesn't want to even be on the team himself? I don't. Doesn't really make that much sense, and if you forced him to play on the team it would probably kill team chemistry. Rondo is known to not get along with teammates. Ask Ray Allen.
If you wanted to make this a Deron Williams versus Rajon Rondo, who is the better point guard TD, then maybe you would have a case. And I say maybe because I've always viewed Williams as one of the top 3 or 4 point guards in the NBA.
But for the olympics, based on both players shooting ability and both players commitment to Team USA the easy choice is Deron Williams over Rajon Rondo.
