Los Angeles Lakers are having another distinctly average NBA season. Even with Kobe Bryant back in the fold, the Lakers are still going to miss out on the playoffs and yet again lose some of their glory hunting fans.
But for those diehard Lakers fans that want to see glory sooner rather than later, there may be hope round the corner. That hope comes in all shapes and sizes at the moment, with the Lakers currently getting linked every week with a new possible 2015 free agent.
The fact of the matter is that the Lakers will have a ton of cap space when it comes to next offseason, and the storied franchise certainly plan on making a huge splash. One of the ballers they have been heavily linked with is Boston Celtics superstar Rajon Rondo, and this week those rumors reached fever pitch after Rondo was spotted having breakfast with Kobe Bryant.
That's right, the Celtics very own Rajon Rondo was having breakfast with the well known Lakers superstar and player negotiator Kobe Bryant.
Who knows, maybe they were just innocently getting together. But signs point to the two players getting to know each other more before they play with each other at the Lakers next season or even this season.

Naturally, during the breakfast meeting in Boston, Kobe and Rajon were not alone as they enjoyed a chat and some food. Lakers Insider and reporter Baxter Holmes was there as well, and he tweeted a picture and his view on what the Lakers will get for Rondo if and when they make a play for the Celtics' star.
