He’s back!

Never play him next to LBJ again, please.

Last night he had a 77.4 offensive rating and a 109.1 defensive rating, for a -31.7 net rating. In the first half he had a 77.8 offensive rating in a game in which the Lakers scored 74 first half points and led by 33. His 5.6 first half net rating was by far the worst on the team. KCP was the next lowest at... 19.5.

Rondo can't keep playing if the Lakers want to be a contender. He is horrendous on both sides of the ball.


Sounds like Kobe's last 4 years.. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Except that he makes the vet minimum, and other players still wanna come play for the Lakers now.

The problem with that is he's been much better this summer playing with Lebron than he has without Lebron, surprisingly.

i <3 rondo. always did ever since he joined us. and never once changed my mind on him at any point since then.


I wouldnt be surprised if he regularly leads prayer amongst some of the guys prior to games and such.

I like him better as a player’s coach and defensive strategist than as a player.

PG: James[34], Bradley, Rondo, Cook
SG: Caruso[28], Pope, Daniels, THT
SF: Kuzma[28], Green, THT, Caroline
PF: Davis[34], Kuzma, Dudley, Cacok

Played great tonight, and spent all night trying to get the guys who should have been fired up for this game, fired up...

Rondo has his limitations, but I think unless you absolutely need his spot for someone clearly better, you just keep him for the playoffs.
More fun than a man with a mustache eating tostadas...

Isn't that acceptable for a vet minimum contract?
