Former NBA Executive On Anthony Davis: "AD Is Special, But He Needs A Guard Like Rondo To Be Great."

But Rondo is more of a sure thing for the Lakers because both James and Davis trust him. Beyond the title won together in 2020, Rondo and Davis were teammates on the 2017-18 New Orleans Pelicans. In the first-round sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers, Rondo averaged 13.3 assists per game and then delivered 21 assists in a Game 3 win against the Golden State Warriors in the next round.

The Warriors went on to win the title, beating the Pelicans in five along the way. Rondo moved on to join the Lakers in 2018, and Davis soon followed in the blockbuster trade in 2019.

"AD is special, but he needs a guard like Rondo to be great," the former executive said. "But paring LeBron and AD, all bets are off."
