Kobe Bryant said he's not done recruiting Rondo. 

 


“No way,” Bryant said. “I’m not done. I’m not stopping until he signs an extension.” -Basketball Forever.

Stop it Bryant for real and stop Laker FO with all those old players i really dont want [expletive]ing Rondo on our team let him go back to Boston where he belongs. Stick some energy in trading away Hill or in younger players we can develop.

I even would pick Clarkson over this Rondo because he's way cheaper and just in about 2 years Rondo will be absolutely done.

Get Dragic or Mudiay if you so desperatly want a PG

If we can get Rondo at around ten mill I would love him but he is looking for the max and on the downside of his career I would pass.

Honestly for me I don't like rondo being here even he is in his prime, Look I keep on telling this, Kobe Bryant is not effective without a ball in his hands, look what happened to Lin, Nash and etc they became sudden atrocious. The only Point Guard that will fit with him is a spot up shooter like Stephen Curry and other spot up shooter but If Kobe retire and Rajon Rondo sign with us well I'm not against with that.

Lin and Rondo are separated by about a few hundred classes.

We shouldn't sign players based on how they will fit with Kobe. He isn't part of the future and he may not play next year.

better at what? Shooting? because that's about it

 

Rondo is the better passer, rebounder, defender, and slasher. I live in AZ so I watch the suns pretty often and Dragic is a product of a system where every player can take as many shots as they want and pretty much do whatever they want without consequence. On an actual team with a system, Dragic will basically be Jeremy Lin with a better shot. I like Dragic but imo he is the third best guard on his current team...Isiah is clearly better and a healthy Bledsoe is also better. Would love to have Dragic but I think many of you are overrating the guy.

Yeah, Rondo is Nash.   Dragić is also the same age as Rondo, so he must be Nash 3.0.

 

Rondo=Nash 2.0

Dragić=Nash 3.0

 

Everyone near 30=Nash.

Dragic doesn't get much time on the ball with the suns because of their three guard lineup. Anytime I see him be the primary point guard such as when Bledsoe was injured he can put upsome really nice numbers. He just needs the opportunity to flourish and be the main guy.

With Kobe being a defensive liability these days and moving forward, I'd take Rondo simply because he's a much better defensive player in comparison to Dragic.

 

However... I'm a bigger fan of Dragic's game and when he has the opportunity to command the ball and be the floor general, he is as close to a pure point guard as any of the elite currently in the game.  His offensive ability is drastically better than Rondo's and he's shown so many flashes of brilliance it's hard for me to not like the guy.  

 

Both have tremendous basketball IQ and are fierce competitors which is something you have to appreciate.  As long as the price is right, I don't see why LA shouldn't throw them an offer.

Incase no one has figured this out yet but...

 

No free agent, gives a crap what Kobe has to say as far as his pitch to them being an LA Laker. Why would they? I know I don’t give a crap. BTW I’m glad Kobe’s going to miss the rest of the season for the sake of the Lakers players. He’s been depressing to watch, sucking the life out of the team, and yes the #’s prove it. To have everything focused on one person through out the entire team. The one Byron calls his “son”. I”m glad Byron got his “son” snatched up and taken away from him because of the selfishness, unaccountable, undeniable sick love he has for this guy is pretty f’n disturbing. 

 

Now Byron’s “purpose” of being a Laker coach is truly irrelevant. 

We know he sucks. Up to Jeanie, Mitch, to get rid of this loser.

 

As to Kobe... oh well [expletive] happens. Retire you selfish S.O.B.
