Disagree

Who will they sign? LeBron ain't leaving and the Pacers are extending Paul George. Who else is worth all that money?

I think we use Phil jackson and make a trade using pau

Dwight comes back.

I'd honestly try to get rondo at all costs. Everyone but Dwight and Kobe

If you can keep hill and Clark perfect but they aren't deal breakers. Take on whatever contracts they want, just like they did with howard

The Lakers are bringing Phil Jackson to the meeting. Phil is the Lakers Ace up their sleeve. Lets hope at least.

If you put Rondo and Howard on the same team you're looking at possibly the worst free throw shooting team in league history. Plus Rondo has a history of alienating everyone he plays with, while DH is one of the most sensitive stars in league history. Yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that probably won't work too well. Plus...Rondo is a Celtic at heart. I don't want any of those with us.

John Wall and Carmelo would be a tremendous duo. 
Maybe even DeMarcus Cousins at the C???

 

Oh baby reuniting Cousins and Wall with Kobe and Melo :o

Hack-a-Rondo, Hack-a-Dwight all game long.

Plus Rondo has a history of alienating everyone he plays with, while DH is one of the most sensitive stars in league history. Yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that probably won't work too well.

Good points.

 

Imagine Rondo going MMA on Phil. Wouldn't that be something? I believe he was a significant part of why Doc left outside of the rebuilding aspect.


yo.

Alienating who? Pierce and kg loved rondo

Also who cares what happens in the future, rondo would help us keep Dwight now.

Add shooters at the 3 and 4 and you're fine.

The talk is he drove Doc up the wall. Ray Allen wanted to get the piss away from him too. Yeah, I'll pass on Rondo. I think he's overrated anyway. I have little faith in star guards who can't shoot.

No they did not. There was more than just a little rumbling about Rondo and Perk (Pre-trade) being tired of dealing with Ray, KG, and PP and vice versa. He's tough to get along with. And I care. It's not like DH is LBJ.

hack a Dwight and hack a rondo would mean diddily squat when Rondo is still getting triple doubles and they the opposing point guard has to get past Rondo's defense followed by Dwight's defense to score.

Getting Ryan Kelly and maybe holding on to Clark certainly sends a signal that Pau may indeed be on the block this summer.

If Boston wants to revisit the Pau / Rondo deal you have to explore that.

That 2014 free agent class ain't doing jack for the Lakers if they don't get Dwight.

 

SMH. We saw Dwight last year. I wasn't impressed. We were better off without him. Last season was the worst I've seen the Lakers for years and years. He's not the answer for the Lakers success, in my opinion.

No there wasn't. Also using rumblings for arguments is ridiculous

Rondo is an elite player. He's a champion who goes 100% at all times. He played a series with 1 arm. Some laker fans just don't watch enough basketball outside of the lakers

Rondo at full health is one of the est players at his position and he's arguably the best defender at his position

Remember him locking up Lebron. No other point can do that.

I was thinking about this earlier today, I'd definitely like that deal. Dwight and Rondo could anchor a crazy defensive squad.

You mean the Dwight that wasn't healthy all year long?

Have you ever watched Dwight the other 8 years of his career when he dominated the league?

Of course you weren't impressed. Your only exposure to dwight was a guy who came back 6 months early from major back surgery

Since you've made it obvious you never watched him in orlando healthy

This "better off without Dwight" cult is simply ridiculous. I really don't think you completely grasp what you're saying.
