The deal makes sense for both sides.
Rondo hamstrings the teambuild by needing shooters and a primary scorer, with the later being hardest and most expensive.
A Dwight-team surrounded by journeyman shooters went to the Finals.
Our current lineup would be dominant with DH close to up to speed. Imagine simply KG and DH splitting time during the regular season. Holy crap. Then side-by-side in the playoffs? With PIERCE at SF?
The best front court in history...better than Bird, McHale, and Chief.
With Bass, Sully, and Green to rely on off the bench.
And the 3-guard rotation we have now.
It puts us right up there in the running this year for sure, if DH can do anything remotely well.
And going forward post-KG, Pierce, JET,
We still look pretty good with DH instead of Rondo.
Swap of the divas.
Gives LA something to look forward to, solves Gasol/Dwight problem, and puts a buffer/ball handler between Kobe and Gasol as well. Rondo/Kobe/Gasol would be nice for a few years.
