    This article makes it sound like Rondo is the one obsessed with joining the Clippers. If true ..... a pox on him. :sick: :swear:

    Yeah, I don't think the Clippers are going to give him a full MLE. I don't see them paying more or even close to what the Hawks are reportedly offering of 2 years for $15 million. That's a great pay day for Rondo. Clips are probably hoping BAE money will do it, but it shouldn't.

    Well that probably means that will be the last suitor for KCP so that should help in negotiations with him

    Seems like Rondo is using the Clippers as leverage to ensure Atlanta doesn't get cheap with him. Rightfully so, considering Atlanta is one of the few teams with a boat load of cap space.

    I hope that's what's going on. Rondo on the Clippers would be very annoying. Rondo as a veteran mentor for Trae Young on a garbage team in the East? Sure, go get your money champ.

    I'd love nothing more than to see Rondo get paid by ATL which would take the one team that I was worried about signing KCP out fo the running for KCP and gives us leverage with him.

    Go get your bag Rondo. Just do NOT join the Clippers

    Come on Atlanta. Don’t go to the Clipper Snakes Rondo. You finally got rid of that C bag stink and you will get it right back.

    Congrats Rondo! Last big salary well earned after activating Playoff Rondo. I'm not sure we have a championship right now without that. Enjoy that ATL payday. I don't see Tre Young capable of learning anything about defense, same way he's not going to teach Rondo how to make half court 3s. But he can educate him on film study and preparation.

    After that payday, feel free to come back and join Vogel's staff.

    And Clippers lose out... again. It's just so much fun to see.

    Good for him. Prefer him on a contender as he's a winner but after winning a title and redeeming himself, don't blame anyone for getting one last big payday
