Yeah I think Rondo sort of prove that you can't survive in the current NBA as just a playmaker. And I do agree, there is doubts on Lonzo mentality.
Rondo mentality have a multiplier effect on his ability and on court. Still don't see that from Lonzo

Why are we pegging Rondo's ability against the current NBA? His prime is over already. He was elite during his days.

The current consensus is this now, but remember, everything can change. Waiting for Ben Simmons to prove everyone wrong.

Ben Simmons is a “rookie” that will forever be overshadowed if he can’t improve on his perimeter shooting. Rookies like ja morant have greater potential than him.

On another note did anyone seen how buff rondo became during COVID. Ridiculous shoulders

Which is exactly what I'm saying. Rondo couldn't heck it in the current NBA with just his playmaking ability alone. He was elite during his days but as the game change, he drop out of the ranks of elite playmaker in NBA.

Lonzo as he is now, is trending towards Rondo trajectory. He will definitely have to improve on his 3pt and be more active in going towards the basket which he had done so in the few games this season.

@MrPippen

not sure about whether being selected to the Third Team automatically grants one a contract boost, but think it really depends on the contract.
