Colin Cowherd: “This morning the Lakers are outside my championship bubble. Avery Bradley and Rondo are two situational players and they’re OUT. I think this team was old to begin with and they’ve very, very LeBron and Anthony Davis-reliant. The West is known for great point guards and great smaller wings and you can’t lose Avery Bradley and Rondo. I don’t think Rondo is a great player, and they were phasing him out, but now you become very dependent on Kyle Kuzma who has never been in a playoff game, and I don’t know what I’m getting… Boston is my dark horse team to win it. Even if they lost a guy to COVID or an injury, they’re still in pretty good shape. They have 3 players averaging 20+, points which is a real thing. That’s an ALL-STAR, and if Gordon Hayward dropped 24 you wouldn’t be shocked. They were also 5-2 against the best teams in the East, Milwaukee and Toronto.” (Full Video Above)
