Putting Lebron on Rondo Is a Mistake

Frankie AnetzbergerContributor IIOctober 17, 2016

It may seem like an optimistic option, however I believe putting the King on Rondo would end up hurting the Cavaliers. A completely different line-up would have to be created. Who is Mo Williams going to guard now? And who is going to guard Paul Pierce? I realize the Cavaliers switch on defense a lot anyways so sometimes Lebron could end up on Rondo, but specifically defending him all game would be a mistake. After game four, it makes you question the match up but the Cavaliers just need to get back on defense. I was at game four and the Cavaliers could have easily won the game. They had Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Rasheed Wallace all in foul trouble before halftime, the just failed to get back on defense. When Rondo is in the zone like he was Sunday, you just need all the help you can get.
