    This is a very good read and a very interesting quote. We're going to be such a fun team to watch this season.

    Imagine a lineup of Rondo/Lonzo/Ingram/Kuzma/LeBron or Rondo/Lonzo/Stephenson/Ingram/LeBron. The weakest passing link there is Kuzma, but the rest can easily create for themselves or others while playing hard-nosed defense on the other end. It's going to be a wild ride.

    Btw, other than the Kang's spot, no starting spot is a given. I love it! Compete and earn your keep.

    I wonder if Clarkson and Ennis ever did that. I’m glad Magic is setting up the roster to put Zo in a position to succeed. It’s up to him now.

    Yup. Looking forward to Big Baller b**** getting his a** handed to him by Rondo. He needs that more than anybody on this roster.

    Can't get over what a great pick up this was. Everyone on the team is going to be better with Rondo here. Already got my bubbly getting cold.

    I really really really love Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka. Beacon of hope and execution.

    Clarkson will not watch film unless it has supermodels in it. Ennis can't because he can't stop dribbling. Rondo is a driven basketball junkie. He did the same thing in New Orleans which is why Davis loved him. It was mentioned when he helped the Pels dismantle Portland.

    I remember a video with him and i think Durant where they were shooting 3's. 10-15 in a row easily.

    Most of these dudes can hit them consistently in practice. I have seen the Machine during pregame against OKC, drilling 15 in a row from around the arc. Then I stopped counting and he hit 4-5 more after that before missing 1. It looked impressive.

    Rondo might actually demand more excellence out of the guys than Lebron will, its a pretty big signing.

    It was when they were playing horse on TNT during all star weekend. I remember watching it, wish they did this more often but with different players.

    It's not that Rondo can't shoot the 3 , it's more about him turning a lot of open looks down ...
