Lends credence to the idea that the Lakers are building a cluster fuck around LeBron. However it works, it will be entertaining.

I take this to mean you think Rondo will beat out Ball for the starting job and for starterís minutes.

Luke Walton has his work cut out for him. 

LeBron

Rondo, Deng, Beasley, Stephenson, McGee

Ball, Ingram, Kuzma, Caldwell-Pope/Hart, Wagner

That's 12. 

Good luck with Pup Development or divining a rotation that keeps everyone involved, everyone happy. 

So, are we to assume LeBron is down with the Pups, or is he going to favor aged in oak vets? 

Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, having tried a similar approach for years, the Knicks double down on Pups. 

I like Mortiz Wagner's game; he impressed during the run up to the Final Fours. 

Be interesting to see if the Lakers end up with a case of buyer's remorse. 

Mortiz instead of Robinson. 

Russell instead of Porzingis.

[Cough] Ball...instead of Tatum.

I like Rondo

If this is the case I see a 27-25 type split, at worst for Lonzo.  They can certainly play together a stretch but only if each is effective.

Makes little sense for Ball to not push 30+ minutes as the season goes

Hart will be pushing for starter minutes

Rondo with the most to prove.

Thanks for the reminder.  9 PM - feature game - ESPN

ďIíve always been pretty confident in my abilities to play the game and that if I get an opportunity to play consistently and be a part of team, then I feel like Iíve always been able to produce,Ē Fredette, the tournamentís leading scorer, told The Post this week in a phone interview. ďAnd itís great to be able to show that again.Ē

Every bucket Fredette drills brings back memories of his stellar college career, when he burst past overmatched Mountain West Conference defenses and redefined 3-point range.



As Jimmer recently said, the NBA has changed of late to fit his style.  All options open for 2019-20 or sooner

Re:  overmatched Mountain West defenses....

Like this ganme vs Kawhi Leonard SDSU:

http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/game?gameId=310260252

Jimmer gets 43 on 24 shots

Kawhi 22 on 20

I assume Mr Leonard was out there defensively as well

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/23825970/zach-lowe-basketball-tournament-nba-crunch
An article about an idea to stop the game at the 4 minute mark, and the first team to get 7 points more than the score of the leading team wins. 

It's an odd proposal designed to eliminate fouling.
What I find interesting is I often do that during a game.  When it gets down to 3 or 4 minutes left with a lead of 5 or whatever, I often think that the leading team just needs to reach xxx points and they'll win.

If Lee, Thomas, and Noah retired at once would they be missed at all? Please go! What was the plan, senior leadership in the play-offs?
