Default Tomorrow morning Lebron is a champion - Howard is screwed

America can now move on to dissecting how much of a douche Dwight Howard has been. Especially now, if after ****ing up a move to the Nets, he tries to push for it (especially since pre draft it's literally not possible.)

Yes, Lebron said some dumbass things in his career (we could make a very funny list) but being dominant and winning a title erases a lot of things. Howard, he's not title bound right now but he has all the requisite stupidity, arguably a lot more than Lebron.

Howard, get that Lebron voodoo doll out (squeeze the leg, cramp damn it!). Because tomorrow, it's your turn.

As much as I hate Dwight Howard, no one will simply ever be under such scrutiny than what LeBron has been over the past two seasons. Never will it be repeated.

Howard, Knicks, coach Brooks and Westbrook = the new media targets.

and btw I like Howard, he seems like a genuinely nice guy... its just that destiny put him on the wrong side... sometimes you admire Kobe for demanding a trade early, so you avoid things like this later... not every superstars can be lucky enough to pull a MJ and win titles with the lowly franchise that drafted you.

If the Knicks can actually become a contending team like they've shown flashes of becoming and if the Nets can get Dwight Howard, then Howard, Deron, and Melo will start becoming huge targets. Howard is already. Melo is but his expectations will become higher. New York having two huge basketball contenders will be perfect timing for the media if the Lebron storyline ends.

lebron's repaired his image a lot, which is evident from these forums also. he's been saying all of the right things, playing hard and well, and not crying much about anything, unlike Wade...who a lot of lebron haters have switched to hate.

Dwight to me seems like his ego is huge. like he's some diva blessing a team with his choice to play for them. but this whole NBA process of superstar chasing is f'd up, where they have way too much pull and teams/owners seem to be at their mercy, to such a degree that i don't normally see in pro sports. its just backwards to me, and creates monster egos out of the privileged few.

Agree. Deron has set himself up as a huge target, he's very rude to the NY media. (Waiting for Net fans to come in and call me a name, but he regularly blows off the media in NY and he gives those sullen 1 word answer interviews when he's in a pissy mood). The little white guys who make up the reporters and are already jealous of the players won't forget. If the Nets are good, Deron is going to be expected to be more forthcoming.

False. Tomorrow morning, Howard is a champion.

Howard won't get anywhere near the scrutiny Lebron does because he isn't anywhere near as good.

Dwight isn't even close to Lebron as a bball player. So, he won't receive nearly the same amount of criticism.

So never in the history of the world will it be repeated? You know this to be a fact? What if the NBA is still around 150 years from now and the media is even larger and more annoying? What if the internet has expanded beyond belief and people from all walks of life are constantly prodding at these athletes? How do you know this will never be repeated? How???? How???????

Don't be silly. The universe is set to implode by the end of the year. If that doesn't pan out, the singularity will surely happen, and we'll be too busy merging with technology, and exploring the cosmos, to care about little orange balls.
