Well, he just took all the money we could have given Cousins. Unless dude is coming for the minimum.
Feel like there has to be more. I’m really not thrilled about this.
Everyone wanted a veteran point guard a minute ago!
Let's be patient.
As much as I understand, we do need to remember that the offseason is very much a work in progress. Does this preclude to a Kawhi deal, thus helping create a possible defensive juggernaut? Perhaps. I'm pissed about Julius going for Rondo too, though.
There's also this:
I’m not mad at this at all, I have always respected Rondo’s game, he’s old-school tough, an irritant, a gamer in the playoffs, and would be a good mentor to Zo on how to be aggressive if you can’t shoot.
I f***ing hate Franklin, there goes my good mood.
Julius is gone and we get Lance, Javale, Rajon... all douchebag team. Time to reach out to Dwight, JR and Swaggy.
If u guys wanna be in a better mood, think of it this way. We got rid of Ennis for Rondo.....
This is huge big for the playoffs. He still can be one of the best players on the court when the bright lights are on.
a move i truly hate now
*starts talking self into Rondo acquisition*
Man, at this point I don’t know what the h*ll we’re doing. I’m assuming all roads lead to a Kawhi trade.
Guys we will never have the offensive firepower to beat GS. But there are other ways to win games. We need defense and strong bench scoring (where the Warriors are weak). That's what we're building here. Leonard only adds to that.
I don’t get why everyone is so mad. Think about our roster last year. All we’ve done is replace our bench. Rondo for Ennis, Stephenson for..like Brewer/Wear, McGee for Bryant. These are not bad moves, Zo, Hart, Ingram, Kuz and LeBron are all still here. Also Rondo was an 8 and 8 player last season. We weakened the Pelicans with this too.
I am not judging this move until we are done dealing. If it leads to Kawhi I am all for it.
Someone get vash in here!
Lance, Rondo, Javelle, Boogie..... what could go wrong?
Luke has to be super thrilled. We have a good team psychologist right?
