Laker GM rob Pelinka spelled it out last week, confirming reports that the surprising moves for Lance Stephenson and Rajon Rondo were Johnson’s choices, not LeBron’s. “Earvin and I had a conversation and LeBron echoed this sentiment,” said Pelinka. “I think to try to play the Warriors at their own game is a trap. “No one is going to beat them at their own game so that’s why we wanted to add these elements of defense and toughness and depth…” It won’t work. If the Lakers just came up with a counter-revolutionary adjustment that contains the shining emblem of an offensive revolution that was years of changing schemes and rules in the making, it will make all else in their storied history look like a bunt.

Luke Walton on the Lonzo Ball-Rajon Rondo dynamic: “I think it will be great. I know Rondo and I know Zo, and they’re both very competitive people. To me, that’s how you get the most growth and how you get a team that can reach its full potential – when you have people going at each other and pushing each other in practice. They key is to make a culture where they go at each other, but they also have a brotherhood within the locker room so as soon as they’re not competing in practice, [they’re part of] that family atmosphere where they’re pulling for one another in the games and learning from one another and teaching each other.”
