Celtics and Lakers talked about a deal for Rondo
 
A deal was NOT close, though.

How would Rondo fit in with Kobe if they played together?

:wtf:
How the heck can The Lakers not like this deal? The Lakers shore up the biggest hole in their lineup with a young athletic pg who likes playing defense. I know salaries don't match so add Jermaine O'neal in the mix. That's $6 million off the books after this season. Then The Lakers have a pg, center combo that would be the cornerstone of the franchise until the end of this decade. Kobe wouldn't have to handle the ball as much and can concentrate on scoring.
But how can Boston agree to this trade with their hated rivals? I believe this helps out The Lakers more than The Celtics. It could only boost Boston's chance of a title for this season...and they still wouldn't be the favorites.

IMO the lakers should be looking to trade Bynum not Gasol. Yes Bynum is better, bigger, stronger, younger, and was a allstar starter this year but most of all this dude is INJURY PRONE!!!! He has had multiple surgeries in his relatively young career but still his stock is as probably as high as it will ever be. If Gasol can land us Rondo, than Bynum can land us the same plus a Pierce/Garnett. He probably can get them any player in the league outside of the top ten just off the strength of his size and upside

If the C's trade Rondo for Gasol, I just might have to start paying more attention to hockey.

No, you're not.

I cant imagine why the Celtics would want Gasol other than as a future trade chip - i.e. for some reason Ainge feels he can turn around and get more for Gasol than he can get for Rondo. A take a step back to take 2 steps forward sort of deal. Otherwise, I dont get it.

I still don’t get why Boston would trade Rondo for Gasol? If they’re shooting for one more championship run before the big three is no more, then OK. But they’re nearly in a rebuilding phase and giving up Rondo doesn’t make sense.

Talk is cheap and the deadline is Thursday!

Though both teams would be interesting/better with this trade. Lakers PG play is pitiful and the Celtics have no post presence.

Rondo/Kobe/Artest or Barnes/McBob/Bynum
Bradley/Allen/Pierce/KG/Gasol

Hmm...

Lol Johnny sic. Of course we would send fillers, but the base of that deal would be bynum for rondo and pierce or Garnett. If it's pierce we package artest, if it's Garnett we package Blake or goudelock throw in a future first and the deal should be solid.

SICK move for the Lakers: Rondo + Kobe = Best backcourt the league has seen in years.

Didn't some poster call a Gasol-for-Rondo trade on here a while back, claiming he had some 'source'? Can't remember who it was. I thought he was nuts at first. :oldlol:

Edit: found it
