Always liked Rondo as a player. Will be weird seeing him in laker uniform though.

Seriously people need to calm the fk down. It’s a one year deal

My lasting impression of Rondo came in locker room scrum after Anthony Davis had 53 vs. Suns:

 

Me: You’ve played with & against a lot of great players in your career. Can you put into perspective what A.D. is doing right now?

 

Rondo: Whatcha want me to do? Suck him off?

 

Me: Uh.

 

 

eloel...I've heard a few other stories like this about Rondo. He's, in a word, eccentric.

He's the Miles Davis of the NBA

 

(Miles was a famous and genius jazz trumpet guy and noted a-hole for everyone here except maybe BBIQ)

Excited for  1. Lebron! (Still love me some Kobe, but damn this guy is amazing) 2. Another big get (Whether in FA or in a trade we need some attractions and closers) 3. Young Guys making big jump (Assuming we have anyone left after more necessary moves either genius ones or in desperation)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Boston Rondo - Hated/loved him
Dallas Rondo - Didnt care
Chicago Rondo - Loved him
Pels Rondo - Loved
Laker Rondo - Expect to love...yet be frustrated (which is honestly a lot better than most of the other lakers these last 6 years)

Note: I may be missing 1 or 2 Rondos

bulls? I don’t know he played for them. I remember the kings

Yo don’t diss Miles with a Rondo comparison, he was a master. Through the decades always inovative and fresh on Robdo hope his shot starts falling don’t bet on open guys getting Bron a triple team by bricking it up!

I thought having Rondo here would shut LaVar up.

I thought the message was clear.

 

I was wrong...I was very VERY wrong.  I'm a father and I understand standing up for my kids but this isn't it.  This is just being a Trump-Style Butt-Hole (excuse my language) and saying what ever you want.  I'm so sick and tired of the arrogance of people like LaVar and Trump that they can spew their verbal sewage into our ears because that's what they want to do.

 

If Lonzo doesn't start to step away from this type of talk, I'm not sure I'll be rooting for him in a Lakers Uni.  It's one thing to have a loud-mouth say stuff because someone puts a mic in their face as long as you denounce it...but silence is not a denunciation...Lonzo may not be a lockerroom cancer but his Dad?  What he says certainly can have an effect on our lockerroom and how Lonzo is perceived by his coaches, teammates and Team Execs.

 

No one should have to tell LaVar to shut up.  If Lonzo wants to keep being a Laker, he's got to stand on his own and not let his Dad appear to speak for him.

 

LaVar is like the loud and obnoxious wife or mother of your best friend.  You love your friend but at a certain point, you tell your friend that either he leaves her at home or he checks her.  You aren't married/related to her and you don't have to put up with her mess.

Pretty strong post. ^

Nice

 

What did LaVar say?

I do try to tune him out and don't follow anyone on twitter.

Verbal sewage like you said

Excited for  1. Lebron! (Still love me some Kobe, but damn this guy is amazing) 2. Another big get (Whether in FA or in a trade we need some attractions and closers) 3. Young Guys making big jump (Assuming we have anyone left after more necessary moves either genius ones or in desperation)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

I think it would be a great middle finger to the celtics if Rondo gets 2 rings here and is remembered as a laker and puts us over the celtics in championships. Just sayin.

Backup PG last season, Tyler Ennis.
Backup PG this season, Rajon Rondo.
Unless Rondo becomes an actual serial killer, we are better than last season with this signing.
Still, 9 millons seems a little too much.
