If Collinson ends up making a difference it will be more easier throwing Rondo in trade scenarios, Collison is more then capable of handling the back up PG duties.

The worst "rule" to me is how we refuse to bring on someone that is the size of a traditional SF or PF.


Stanley Johnson


Pretty much. Lets hope Fitzdale plays him. I actually wanna see him in action as a laker, to see if he could be valuable.

He's the kind of player Fizdale loves so we'll see.

1) I liked Stanley Johnson back in 2015. I still remember him saying he was the best player in the draft. Crazy how time flies. If he does stay on the floor, it will be because of his defense. That has to be his calling card. Low risk, high reward move and he's 24 years old.

2) Collison is a good vet presence, but we kinda have that with Rondo. He's a good PnR player from what I remember, so who knows... he may stick around. He's only a few inches taller than IT, so there's that.

Stanley Johnson was a South Bay Laker before he signed a 10 day contract with the Bulls. Unfortunately he tested positive for COVID and never contributed.

Maybe he can make an impression here; if not, hopefully he goes back to South Bay. Good luck to him and DC.

6'6" is SG size. Kobe was 6'6", as was Jordan. Most small forwards including Lebron, Bird, Dr. J, Durant, and Pippen were taller than that.

One thing about Collison when he played was he was scrappy and can actually shoot unlike Rondo... But I'm not getting my hopes up since he has not played in in 2-3 years.

Stanley Johnson had a potential when drafted looking like he was on the rise with Detriot. But he just seems to not able to put it together for some reason. Very inefficient guy but a dog on the defensive end.

At this point I only care about defense. Offense be damned. We have LeBron who will figure that out.

Hasn't the last few games of LeBron showed you that LeBron just "figuring out" offense, without an actual offense flowing doesn't do anything for us?

Yeah but if he proves he can still play close to what he used to, it'd make Nunn highly expendable in. a trade for a guy like Justin Holiday or potentially a Cam Reddish if picks were involved.

I really don’t think offense is the issue. The Spurs scored over 30 points in every quarter last night. That’s just a microcosm of this season. Our offensive system is not the best and I acknowledge that. And I also acknowledge that we don’t have a full squad out there, but we should still be able to handle the Spurs. But again, not worried about that as long as the defense is there. Remember, in 2020 our offense was very much stagnant at times with everyone standing around. AD’s dominance overshadowed that Achilles heel that season.

I’m depending on LeBron and AD to figure that out again offensively. They did it last postseason too until AD got hurt.

It's easy throwing Rondo into trade scenarios right now. The hard thing is getting another team to think that receiving Rondo in a trade scenario is somehow a positive for them

At least these two ten days make sense, unlike the random IT pickup. THT has been terrible, Rondo has been a (bleep) flaming hardcore disaster basically every game he’s played in except one or two, and every other guard is out with injury or Covid right now. DC, if he has even a drop of ability left, is worth a ten day to try him out. And Johnson, while he really sucks at anything to do on offense, at least is a wing who has the potential to play some defense, which we desperately needed after Rob decided to go hard on small guards.
