Purple & Bold: Rajon Rondo can bring speed with his ‘swag’

first_imgIn looking at how much better the Lakers have been when LeBron is on the court, one of the pieces of subtext is that the Lakers’ offense hasn’t been efficient when James can’t make looks for his teammates. The 3-point shooting especially drops to sub-30 percent when James is on the bench.Rondo can help that by being a half-court table-setter, but he can also help that by pushing the team’s tempo along. Whether off a defensive rebound or with a turnover, the Lakers can push the pace a little harder to get going.“He’s quarterbacking that thing, and he’s got options,” Caruso said. “As he’s rounded back into form, sort of like we saw with (Kuzma) … I think (Rondo) is doing that too, and we’re starting to see some of his skills come out.”Because as much confidence as you can get from a 3-pointer out of a half-court set, nothing quite gives you swag like a fast-break dunk.CARU-SHOW 2DWe’ve written about how Internet memes are a part of the Caruso experience. But wall murals, which predate memes by tens of thousands of years, mean you’re immortalized.Consider the Bald Mamba immortal, then, after L.A. muralist Gustavo Zermeno Jr. painted Caruso dunking over an impressive assembly of Western Conference talent: James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic, Devin Booker and Jamal Murray.It’s not long before Caruso gets word of new memes from his friends. He first saw a picture of it while waking up from a nap.“I thought it was fake, to be honest,” he said. “It just kind of goes to the cult following we’ve been joking about for the past six months.”Caruso said he messaged the artist to send his compliments. He was hoping to visit the mural on Wednesday.KUZ UPDATEAn ugly eye injury for Kyle Kuzma raised red flags to anyone who saw him stalking off the court bleeding from his face, but the Lakers said a follow-up medical evaluation revealed nothing too serious. Kuzma is scheduled to practice on Thursday and play in Oklahoma City on Friday.The third-year-forward tweeted out an emoji with glasses on Wednesday afternoon. Are rec specs in his future?

Frank Vogel says so.Look past Rajon Rondo’s assist numbers from Tuesday night’s win, Vogel said, into something less tangible.“Rajon’s statistics are not measured on the stat sheet; it’s measured in swag,” the Lakers head coach said earnestly. “He just gives us some confidence and an air about us that we know we’re going into battle with a heck of a basketball player.”center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersSwag is all well and good, but there is something more measurable that Rondo can do: Help the Lakers pick up the pace.Within Rondo’s 10 assists against Oklahoma City were five dimes in transition: to Kyle Kuzma, to Alex Caruso, two to LeBron James and one to Anthony Davis. Even though Rondo also got half-court dishes that led to 3-pointers, one of his best strengths is finding options on fast-break opportunities.It’s an area where the Lakers have growth potential: They’re currently eighth in the league in points off turnovers and ninth in fast-break points. Part of the reason they don’t run as much as they could is because, as much as LeBron and Rondo are fast-break threats, they also can pound the ball and walk it up, not seizing as quickly on transition opportunities.After scoring 30 fast-break points against Oklahoma City (which is a top-five transition defensive team), the Lakers had to acknowledge that their fast break attack isn’t something they always use enough.“I feel we get stagnant at times,” guard Danny Green said. “We slow down the pace ourselves when we don’t need to. Our best offense for us is our defense. And also just running. We don’t have to run plays and half-court sets. So if we push the pace and attack early, I think we’ll give ourselves some easier looks.”last_img read more
