It was totally fabricated rumor. Or at least all parties are denying it. But what is the difference between Rondo and Nash from the point of view that your presenting? MY point is that Kobe doesn't let other people touch the ball, and he doesn't want to work off the ball. Remember when we thought how great this Laker offense was going to look. Well it fuck'n sucks, why because in LA LA bizzaro world Nash is the pick in the pick in roll, Kobe doesn't want anyone stealing his thunder and has zero trust in anyone. Nash isn't even bringing the ball across half, Kobe has turned him into a Derrick Fisher who doesn't take charges. So why on earth would you bring Rondo into that mix. He can't hit a jump shot and needs the ball to be effective. So if this trade was to happen, It will completely wreck Rondo's career.

But it would be a great trade for the Celtics.

Doesn't matter to me either way (I'd rather see Rondo stay in BOS)... but GMs deny everything until it actually happens.

Nash is too nice a guy. He won't ruffle any feathers there in L.A.

Rondo wants to win bad enough that he'll have no problem being a prick if he has to and telling Kobe to eat shit if he tries to dominate the ball.

And there's a bit of a difference defensively between Nash and Rondo.

It's a real shame what has happened to DH12/what he's done to himself recently. Aside from LBJ he probably had the greatest impact on his team in the NBA.

Wow if this goes down I will be extremely disappointed. Rondo and KG are my favourite players and seeing them leave Boston is disappointing to say the least.
