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. 

and lakers beat the celtics in the finals as well.. oh man that would be sweeeeeeeeeeet

Always loved Rondo! One of my fav players of all time. one of the greatest minds in basketball history. (Same with Lebron) and their both on the same team. This is going to be fun. Welcome aboard

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

 

He called Rondo "Little Backup"...why?  what's the point?  Dude needs a life and stop trying to live thru his sons...

A case can be made i think, to declare Rondo the starter RIGHT NOW. Not only because he's the better player currently.

 

But also Ball would work better with a speedy 2nd unit.

 

And if it doesn't shut up his dad, it would only diminish his sons worth around the league as being a toxic asset which would lower the value of the overvalued BBB brand among other things.

 

I'd be thinking about doing just that if i'm the lakers.

 

I'm rooting they do this and not only because i have Rondo being a better fit with the starters.

 

Put an end to the absolutely unnecessary drama i say

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!!!

At some point, Lonzo will have to choose:  Stand by your Dad and suffer the criticism for the stupid remarks or stand on his own as his own man.  Can't keep letting your DAD throw shade on your team.

This season is everything. If Lonzo comes in with an improved 3 pt shot and plays well and snatches the starting gig I think he'll be here for a while.

If he comes in more or less looking like he did last year and can't beat out Rondo and Lavar has some not so nice things to say about it I think he's history.

“Inside the Pelicans’ locker room, the tales are similar about Rondo’s focus. After winning two straight in Portland, Rondo was the first to remind his teammates that they hadn’t accomplished anything. Of his obsessive game study, teammates talk of late-night texts from Rondo with an observation he had seen on game footage. As Rondo dressed in front of his locker Thursday, game footage played on a laptop in front of him,” Mannix said.

 

 

He is gonna be fun to have around. Dude could be as obsessed about game as Kobe.

If there's one thing I want our youth to learn from Rondo.. it's toughness

Let's not forget this guy played (if I remember correctly) an OT with a torn ACL, and kept playing in another game after dislocating his elbow.

Absolute monster.

I like the RR signing, dont know why but I do... I like him as a mentor for Ball and I like his PO experience I also like his edge, this team needs that.

Lonzo looked better after hanging out with IT last year.

 

If Lonzo and Rondo bond,
