[Guide] on March 2nd news that Rondo and Mavericks coach Carlisle had a quarrel during the game, so they were suspended for one game.
According to media reports, the possibility of Rondo staying with the Mavericks after the season is not high, and his new home is likely to be the Los Angeles Lakers.
However, according to Sean Young, an American basketball expert, Rondo has no three-point shooting ability, and his personality Scott may be difficult to control. Yang advised the Lakers not to chase Rondo.
The Lakers have had a poor record this season, and the team has begun to break ground and rebuild.
During the offseason, the contracts of many players in the Lakers team will expire, which will help them make room to chase big-name players, and one of their goals in the free market is Rajon Rondo.
From the Celtics to the Mavericks, Rondo’s assists and rebounds have been declining. Recently, Rondo was suspended for one game because of an argument with coach Carlisle. There are many signs that Rondo is likely to leave Dallas.
His joining the Lakers is likely to bring a greater crisis to this team.
The competition in the Western Conference is fierce this season, and almost every playoff-level team has an All-Star-level point guard.
At the beginning, the Mavericks saw the team’s inadequacy at the No. 1 position, so they made up their minds in exchange for Rondo to fight Curry and Paul.
But the problem is that since his rookie season, Rondo’s shooting ability has not been developed. When he is on the court, the players who defend him are often far away from him, and the team often falls into a 4v5 situation.
In fact, with the development of basketball, teams in the league have become very dependent on three-pointers.
Statistics show that in the 2007-08 season, only the Orlando Magic made more than 30% of their three-pointers in the league, reaching 32.2%.
But this season, the Rockets, Trail Blazers, Eagles, Cavaliers, Clippers, Mavericks, Warriors, and 76ers all accounted for more than 30% of their three-pointers. Among these 8 teams, only the 76ers had a poor record, and
The rocket’s data reached 40.3%.
Another data shows that among the starting point guards of several strong teams in the Western Conference, Beverly made 93 three-pointers this season, with a three-point shooting percentage of 35.5%.
Lillard hit 140 three-pointers, 34.1% three-pointers, Paul hit 93 three-pointers, 38.6% three-pointers, and Curry hit 176 three-pointers, 40.6% three-pointers
Although Rondo made 31.8% of his three-pointers this season, he has only made 21 three-pointers so far.
After the Mavericks acquired Rondo, the team did not get better because of it, but Rondo’s personality gave the Mavericks a headache.
If he joins the Lakers, his relationship with Scott will also be a problem. Yes, Scott has cultivated top point guards like Paul and Irving, but there are many problems between him and Kidd, and Rondo and
Like Kidd, they are all thorny figures in the locker room. A champion coach like Carlisle cannot tame Rondo, let alone Scott.
Another issue worth noting is that the rookie Clarkson has performed well recently. If Rondo arrives, it will definitely affect the performance of this young player. Since January 18, Clarkson has averaged 14.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.9
Kobe once expressed his willingness to team up with Rondo, but Kobe may retire next season, and Rondo may stay here for 5 years. Rondo’s long stay in Los Angeles is likely to bring more trouble to this team
