Signing Rajon Rondo to a one-year minimum deal both added to the Los Angeles Lakers' treasure trove of experience and made the team even older. By now, half of the league's oldest guys are with the purple and gold, including their commander LeBron James, who will turn 37 in less than four months.
Such an old roster means the Lakers will be more experienced and probably play smarter on the court, but they are likely to be slower and more vulnerable to injuries as well. Having given up almost all future assets in the past three years, the team must win now. The question is, can those old legs still carry them victory?
