I wonder if Bledsoe would have been traded if it were in the Ballmer era instead of the Sterling era. Everyone knew that he was good, it's just that CP had the 1-spot on lock, he wasn't quite ready to be the starting SG, and he needed to get paid. Like a mini James Harden situation where the guy is obviously talented, but doesn't fill your most significant need so you trade him because you have to/have already paid your other guys.
Did I read the situation right? With a reliable jumper, Bledsoe would have killed on the Clips. Lockdown defender on the perimeter, another speedy athletic finisher on the break, and lead dog on the second unit. They just couldn't pay him, CP, Blake and DeAndre (plus gotten rid of Crawford I suppose)
Lakers rumor is that they will try hard and go after Rondo.
Greg Monroe and Marc Gasol are also free agents next summer and both players are expected to get chased by the Lakers, Celtics and Knicks. All three teams will have some money to spend and PBT writes that there are "rumblings" about the Lakers and Monroe, while the NY Post has reported the Knicks will be going hard after Gasol. The Celtics also could be a target for Gasol, as Pro Basketball Talk added there is a chance that the team would try to sign both Rondo and Gasol.
that was a weird column overall. i guess who really knows, but that sounds ridiculously annoyingly passive aggressive. like that playoff game where kobe just didn't shoot in the 2nd half
sounds reasonable if he wants them to find find some flow offensively without isoing on every play and everything going through his hands.. not sure if that's the best way to achieve this, but i can appreciate the intent if it's there
