If he leaves LA in free agency, does anyone take dude seriously anymore?

Of course he'll likely sign with LA. I mean, is there really anything better than being a rich, NBA superstar in LA (or Miami)??

He didn't sign in L.A.. He asked to be traded to Brooklyn, and Orlando traded him to the Lakers instead.

Just like LeBron leaving Cleveland, it's Dwight's right to play/work wherever he chooses.



And I don't think anyone takes Dwight seriously right now.

Gimme some of that crack man


Why would LA give up Dwight for Noah and a hobbling DRose?
Dwight + MWP for DRose and Noah much more fair

No S&T for teams over cap anymore (which is why any Knicks/Cp3 rumor is doubly stupid). And seriously, Lopez? Dude stepped wrong and the Nets sat him down for 3 weeks. In Month 2 of a 4 year max contract.

I can't be the only Laker fan that doesn't care if he resigns in LA or not?

We might lose out on probably the best Center in the game, but he hasn't exactly been dominating his competition and hasn't been the defensive captain we thought he would be.

Not only this, but Dwight simply doesn't have very good fundamentals. He is now 27 years old, and while that might still be young, his window is a lot smaller than one might think. His dominance comes from his strength and athleticism. Once he starts to decline athletically, we'll be in trouble.

People on the board have been blasting DWade for not having better fundamentals as a guard, and I'd have to say that Wade's fundamentals as a guard are lightyears above Dwight's as a Center.

Who would LA go after, after Kobe and Nash are gone? I really don't know and can't say currently. I just know that I don't think we should put so much hope behind a C with so many glaring weaknesses and with a huge possibility of a steep decline in productivity.

Default Re: Dwight essentially states he will resign with LA

This is Dwight Howard doing his best LeBron James FA impression by giving cryptic multiple meaning answers.

I know i'll be playing in LA.
I know i'll be playing in Atlanta.
I know i'll be playing in Dallas.
I know i'll be playing in *insert city here*

Really doesn't mean much, other than he is stupid, and if he does leave the Lakers this should help them file a tampering case against whoever he leaves them for. If he does join CP3 somewhere this response PROVES collusion.
