Lonzo, Rondo Rondo, Lakers discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
But the one thing I said, I'm not sure I gotta watch. It got gotta watch it pan out Rondo or Lonzo who fits better with LeBron and LeBron can make them both work. But you'd prefer one's easier to play with. Well, we have an answer. Lonzo ball should be starting Lonzo ball. Now that Rondo and Rondo got nobody to blame. But Rondo Rondo gets into a fight Rondo is the agitator lonzo's more of a lubricate sugar lonzo's allowed to play now and getting more minutes why? Because once again, Rondo agitates gets into a fight and last night, twelve point seven, rebounds, six assists. One point the Lakers had thirty assess three turnovers lonzo's not a heavy turnover guy. He needs to start. And again Rondos got nobody to blame. But Rondo on this and the Lakers are playing intentionally fast because they don't have a bunch of shooters. They have a ton of depth. They had seventy six at half their style this year because of their limitations on shooting is play intentionally fast. I mean, they're just flying up and down the court. So if you're gonna fly up and down the court, and that's the style it's gonna work. And that's what magic things Luke thinks. Lebron thanks, rob Pelinka. Thanks. Everybody knows that we're deep. We're young. We're at let it we can run. We're not gonna win a shooting contest. If that's the style. We're gonna do lonzo's gotta be your guy because I just I was talking about this yesterday. I had lunch. Saturday, Daryl Maura Houston Rockets. I'm not gonna get into specific players, but we had this conversation at lunch, and it didn't include Lonzo or Rondo, but there's a lot of guys in the NBA. They over dribble over dribble over dribble over dribble. When there's an assist available. Then they do it because they want the assist now Rondos very much like that Rondo is dribbler dribbler dribbler dribbler drill. He'll pass up shots dribbler dribbler. He wants the assist he'll take the air out of the ball. Lonzo's not that kind of player, but Maury, and I were talking about this. There are a lot of NBA guards that end up with eight assists, and they're really selfish players. Not all assist totals of the same. Rondo has always been play big in the playoffs. Play big TV games. And I want the assist number. Lonzo doesn't give a rip and the Lakers. Four games this year. One thirty one forty one fifteen one nineteen they're gonna move the ball up and down the court, Lonzo fits better. And by the way, Lonzo now is stronger than last year and Lonzo is clearly a better shooter than last year, the two things we worry about Lonzo. My two knocks on them last year where he doesn't look like an NBA body. He looked like a college athlete print plan NBA basketball. He looks bigger. Now, he looks like he put on eight to ten pounds. He looked bigger and stronger. I always liked his lane. I always liked his vision. But I'm like he doesn't look like an NBA gardens. Look he does. Now. Secondly, I said you've got to get the shot. I don't care if he fixes it. He's just gotta hit more threes. And now he is here's a secret last night a sequence from who the Lakers should be starting alongside. Lebron Ronald quickly. It rhythm. Abroad three pointer for Lonzo. Lebron lobs. It looked good. This batch. Braun he sought two and one. Right wing. Tomahawk who's on the beautiful shovel. Rub Lonzo Lonzo ball style fits the style. The Lakers are going to play to succeed this year much better, by the way, they play much better team tonight, the Denver Nuggets so little honeymoon here on the w but they play the nuggets tonight a loaded team. And by the way, Russell Westbrook's team host Boston. They haven't won a game either. I could spend hours on that.
