C - KG
PF - Bosh
SF - Pierce
SG - LeBron
PG - Rondo

A potent mix of speed, athleticism, defense, clutch and scoring.
If we're moving LeBron to shooting guard then I change my roster to:

C - Dwight
PF - Love
SF - Durant
SG - LeBron
PG - Chris Paul
---
6th man - Rondo

Nah if we're going for fastest and most athletic like in the OP we need:

C - Dwight
PF - Griffin
SF - Durant
SG - LeBron
PG - Rose/Westbrook

Actually, the pure most athletic team would be the above but with LeBron at SF, and Westbrook at SG (he's got the size for it).

Ideal Rondo Roster I'd probably have Steph Curry at SG, because other than Kyrie Irving and Durant there's no better young shooter in the league... but maybe you go with a more traditional SG instead.  James Harden and Kobe are the league's two best right now.  At SF ...  LeBron James.  At PF... Kevin Love.  at C... Dwight Howard.  And then I have Chris Paul at starting PG.  I bring Rondo off the bench.  WE're talking ideal fantasy roster surrounding Rondo, right?

Good luck beating my team.

  Howard/James/Durant/Kobe/Rondo.

Rondo needs to be around shooters. And for fun, I'll try to avoid the obvious choices like Lebron, Dwight, etc.

PG - Rondo
SG - Wesley Matthews
SF - Paul George
PF - Ryan Anderson
C - Andrea Bargnani

Would this team contend? Not a chance. No interior defense and nobody who can really create off the dribble besides Rondo. And for the record, I hate Bargnani's game.

But I think it'd be fun to see Rondo with 4 great 3-point shooters who could space the floor for him.  And with Matthews/George, I aimed for two swings that could also finish around the rim well.

By the way, as I was looking around KG was one of the best options for Rondo since KG can shoot AND defend. I think Rondo would be less useful with a big like Dwight.

That team needs Danilo Gallinari. Other than that, it's a fun team, for sure (=

Fantastic topic!

PG: Rondo
SG: Paul George
SF: James
PF: Love
C: Noah

SG: I see a lot of people saying OJ Mayo and James Harden, but I am a big NO for both.  They're players who need the ball in their hands to be more than useful.  If you have Rondo at point, the ball is in Rondo's hands.  Rondo is basically useless off the ball.  Neither Mayo nor Harden are great off-the-ball guards.  George is useful off-the-ball, and it'd be nice to pair Rondo with a young SG who can help offensively and defensively.

SF: I loathe writing Bron's name, but teaming him with Rondo would be as exciting a match-up of players as possible in the NBA.  Forget about Kobe or Durant or Wade.  Rondo would find Bron in places Bron didn't even know he could be found.  Those two alone may average 100ppg.

PF: I know Love plays a lot of C, but in a reverse KG, I'm planting him at PF.  Not only is he a beast on the boards and a potential alley-oop every time down the court, but he spaces the floor with his three-point shooting, and Rondo would find him every time.  I agree with people who put Nowitzki, but Love is younger and rebounds at a much higher clip.

C: I want more of a traditional C with a defensive background.  Someone who doesn't need the ball on the block to score, but is smart enough and good enough with his hands to find openings, catch Rondo's passes, and finish at the rim.  He doesn't need to be 7-ft because he has beats like Love and Bron down in the post with him.  Al Horford is a close second with David Lee coming in third.

Ainge had mentioned he expects Rondo to get paid 'star money.' On that subject, Rondo said, 'I'm making star money now, really. Its a pretty good living. I'll let my agent handle those terms.'

You have to be good before you can be great. Build a team instead of tearing it down.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
Surprised I haven't seen much small ball w/ Lebron at PF.

PG : Rajon Rondo
SG : Steph Curry
SF : Kevin Durant
PF : Lebron James
C  : Kevin Garnett (or maybe Dirk) (I'm hesitant to add Love, cuz you need the veteran swagger to fully dominate)


Make it happen, Danny!!!!!!!!!!
I like Marcus Smart
