I have no prob with Zo starting if it makes a better overall lineup and we play better with it. Really it's about starting Kuz at the 3 over Ingram.

Let’s not forget Rondo “won” the starting job as Lonzo was nursing his knee back to 100% and getting in shape. That’s his rightful spot and I think he’s further proven he deserves it.

Like other have said, good problem to have. Ingram can move off the ball similar to Kuzma, but he doesn’t have the quick feet or shooting ability that enables Kuzma to score so effortlessly and without pounding the ball. Im curious to see how Luke handles this.

Having LeBron and Rondo together defensively in the starting lineup wasn't a good look so we'll see.

It’s not really about rondo playing well with the starters

It’s more about how I feel lonzo would play with the bench

In terms of Ingram vs kuzma. I think that’ll iron itself out

I like what Rondo has been doing, but Zo is definetely my starter.
I like Ingram over Kuz because of his all-around game, but maybe Kuz fits better in this offense.
Anyway, we've got options 😎 (not at the 5, there's only JaVale for now).
I could never imagined Lance beeing effective, key and fun at the same time 🔥🔥🔥
This team is [expletive]ing crazy!!! 🤣🤣🤣

If we go back to giving up 120+ ppg when Rondo comes back then Zo def needs to start. If this team is gonna go anywhere we have to be a good defensive team, period.

He’ll handle it like he handled KCP and hart

He’ll watch what happens. If Ingram comes back lighting it up he’s gonna start. If kuzma keeps out playing him then he’ll start

I don’t think that battle is as intricate as rondo and ball which you have to look at roles and where they’ll best be suited necessarily

With ball and rondo you almost have to look at overall team performance. What maximizes overall performance for 48 minutes. Well in my opinion ball plays better with hart and lebron and kuzma

Rondo is vet he’s gojna play well wherever you put him

So to maximize overall play you have to put ball in the best position to succeed

I agree, Zo is our best defender, we need him from the start and closing games.
