I was just going to post this. Haha weird, I bet it's not true though.

Rondo? When we already have Nash?

What do the Lakers have that isn't named D12 or Kobe?

No need for rondo when Nash is still under contract

Makes no sense but I would assume the trade would also somehow include Garnett going to the Lakers and Nash possibly going to a third team BUT who knows?

CBS sports is reporting the Lakers have engaged celtics on swapping dwight for rondo+filler


However, CBSSports.com has learned that the Lakers have engaged in preliminary trade discussions with an unlikely trade partner regarding Howard: their fierce rival, the Boston Celtics. The centerpieces of the possible deal, which hasn't gained any traction, would be Howard and Rajon Rondo.

Sounds interesting. Don't think it happens, but lakers are the ones who called the celtics it sounds like.

GREATNESS ONE

Calling bull ****


Everyone throwing stories out there to get their name in the headlines at Howard's expense and honestly can you blame them?

Yeah I think this is BS. Laker trade rumors never leak... like ever. Nash, Gasol and Howard were all acquired so quickly and silently. Very un-Laker like

There is a need for Rondo just nothing you guys can offer unless it's Dwight.

Um this is actually another get out of Jail free card for the Lakers. If I were the celtics I would say no for that alone lol.

Honestly Rondo pass first with Gasol/Kobe and his defense....It could work. What about Nash though?

No way this happens with both Nash and Antoni still under contract for 2 more years beyond this season.

why would the lakers trade for a pg who just tore his acl and is out for the season? i dont think they are thaaaaaaaat desperate to get rid of howard.

where do people get these ideas....

Would be great for the C's but why would the Lakers do this, seems realllly fishy. Just trade him to the Hawks for Horford already ffs.

Anyways. This would be a killer move for the Celtics. Rondo isn't a player that can carry a team on his own. I'd much rather put complementary players around Dwight than around Rondo moving forward.

If they can get him to sign an extension sure. If the lakers could shed Nash and Dantoni and get Rondo for dwight it would be good for the lakers....Not sure that is possible though.

Dwight and Nash. They went after the two deals, bit the other way around and admit as much. Now Pau was offered as was CP3 to them

If it was something like Garnett/Pierce for Howard that would make more sense... why would the Lakers trade big for small when they don't even have a healthy front court right now?

I can't think of a trade involving Dwight and the Celtics that would make both teams better.

rumor is kinda wierd. ken berger is usually pretty solid w/rumors.

as a c's fan, i say **** yeah. acquiring howard would definitely be an "all-in" type move for banner 18. i have no idea why the lakers would do it though.

this makes absolutely no sense. Nash is still as good as Rondo, under contract, and the Lakers would take on major salary for a ball dominant guard who would drive Kobe absolutely nuts.

I call 100% bs

Oh would he?

Kobe on Rondo:


You don't want Rondo? Send him my way," Kobe declared. "I love everything about him. Everything. I love his attitude, I love his chippiness, his edge, his intellect, his know-it-allness. All of it. That's what makes championship players.

"What guard have you seen at his size that will get you 18 assists, 17 boards and 20 points all in one game? That's unheard of. I love that kid. I always make a point of talking to him during All-Star [Weekend]. He's one of my favorites.

http://espn.go.com/boston/nba/story/_/id/8924289/kobe-bryant-feels-pain-rajon-rondo-boston-celtics

The Rondo hate is so tired. Especially from so called 'Celtics fans' like Corey and Bagwell who bash him left and right. Rondo is the best in the world at what he does. The best pg in the league, or at the very least a top 5 pg. He makes any team he's on instantly better. That can't be argued.

It's hilarious reading all the fake 'Celtics fans' garbage on how the Celts are better off without Rondo because they've won a few games. So does that make the Bulls better without Rose too because they've played well without him?

The Celtics aren't doing **** in the playoffs with Rondo.

Rondo? When we already have Nash?If the deal happened even though very risky Howard leaves as a UFA. But if Lakers got Rondo. I could see Nash dealt in the summer to the Raptors for a few pieces to get the youth movement started in LA.

I don't think so unless Dwight would resign with them. Otherwise it's just giving Rondo away for a half season rental. I'm all for trading Rondo, but it has to be for something with some long term value.
