LA Roundup: Can the Lakers Get Rajon Rondo Back for the Playoffs, Clayton Kershaw No Longer Considered an Ace to MLB Execs, LAFC Show Resiliency in Game 1, and More!



Welcome to another roundup, where we gather all of LA sports’ biggest stories of the day!

The Lakers are hoping to make a deep playoff run in Orlando, and odds are that this will likely be the case. If they make it past the quarter-finals, the possibility exists of Rajon Rondo coming back to help the team in the later rounds. Whether this is good news or bad news depends on what you think of Rondo, but a savvy veteran with plenty of playoff experience can hardly be seen as a bad thing. We are just about 2 weeks away from starting the Orlando games, and we can’t wait!

Clayton Kershaw has been the face of the Dodgers for the past decade as well as one of the most dominant pitchers in the game. Recent struggles in big games, however, have made some execs around the sport question whether he is still an ace-caliber pitcher. While his prime may be behind him, Kershaw has proven that he is able to adapt and stay relevant. His desire to give 110% each time he takes the mound is what has made him a fan favorite for the past decade, and he still has plenty left in the tank to go a little longer.

We end today by analyzing LAFC’s opening game thriller last night from Orlando. They seemed to come out of the gate slowly, but a fantastic second half helped them gain a point with a 3-3 tie with Houston. The absence of Carlos Vela was clear, but don’t count them out just yet. LAFC showed that they are still dangerous, even without their leading striker.
