Once he's healthy again he'll be a top 3-4 player in the league again. Hopefully he won't be playing for the Lakers anymore at that time, because those fans don't deserve him with all the shit they talk.

I think he goes to Houston. There, healthy, with Harden, Parsons, Hakeem down the street, Kevin McHale as his HC. If he can't succeed there he's not going to succeed ever again.

i think the back is going to give him issues the rest of the career. With that said he's still going to be one of the top centers but i doubt we are gonna see Orlando Dwight.

No matter which team he plays for he will be the best C in the league again. Should be fully healthy.

bottom 5 human being? Who cares? I still lmao when people put stock into that kind of crap. He is the best center in the league when healthy.

He needs shooters everywhere around him to succeed.

You have to double him. LA had no shooters so when they doubled he would turn it over or a shooter would miss.

On the Magic, everyone around him could shoot.

they were trying to replicate the 09-10 run but the Lakers didn't expect that many injuries to the team. The main guys gasol, Nash and Dwight all missed games due to injury and Losing Kobe at the end of the year killed them.

Yes, if he's healthy again he'll return to a top 3 player in the NBA. Hopefully he secures the #2 player like he used to be.

His stats will improve from last season and his defense will come around again, but I actually think he'll get exposed like he does almost every season as lacking fundamentals, a jump shot, mental composure, and being turnover / foul prone.

Most of his flaws don't have anything to do with recovering from surgery, because we've seen them in ORL and also as Howard looked better at the end of the season.

Granted, surround him with enough talent and it probably won't matter (but I think it always will). If he goes to Houston, I think it's great for him and he can grow alongside Harden. The more expectations for him, say going to Dallas or staying in LA, the worse IMO. He seems like a care free player.
