Not like the guy is a legendary center. If this were Shaq or Kareem...I'd understand all the "desperation" if you will.

Last year was a disaster and now Kobe stans on their knees sucking their gawd's diq so hard that they are driving an elite player away so no blame can go on their gawd.


Clippers fan on full hate mode. lakers still run LA

If I were the Lakers I'd be putting up signs saying "Leave." This diva isn't worth the trouble, or the embarrassment.

The Dwightmare Saga has been waaaaaay worse than The Decision, or really anything an NBA player has done in recent memory.

Definitely a faux pas by Lakers brass. All they have going for them right now is their prestige. Everyone already knew for months he wasn't coming back. Lakers get off your knees and have some respect for yourselves.

I think the Lakers understand who Dwight is. And this is a guy who needs to feel wanted and he needs to be coddled. He needs to feel loved.

All this shows to me is that he Lakers want Dwigh, and they understand the type of person he is. The prestige of the Lakers does not matter to him. All he cares about is himself. So that's what the Lakers are doing. It may seem like they are lowering themselves by doing this but all they are just doing what is necessary to have the chance to keep him

Yeah but it won't work. Dwight likes the attention of those billboards. But to him it is like an ugly ex girlfriend begging him to marry him. It just isn't going to happen he is going to move on lol

Kobe has MAX 2 maybe 3 good years left. If D12 leaves, they have 0 chance of winning a title. If he stays, they have *some* chance of winning it all. I'd rather take the some chance than no chance at all here.

let the f*cker walk and ride with players who actually want to be lakers

Jim Buss is the a-hole who is destroying the Lakers dynasty... D'Antoni over PJax? Really??? Jim Buss has real ego issues that ooze of stupidity.

Back in 2010, there was a clever alliteration "We Want Wade." Lakers need something like that, "Don't Ditch us Dwight."

Nothing wrong with what the Lakers are doing.
Do they have to? no they don't
Should they, you bet. Dwight's worth the effort anyone saying let him walk is a clown. Dwight is the best center in the league and will be for a few more years. Any Laker fan hoping he walks really doesn't care about the Lakers.

Secondly this is not a Jim Buss idea, he runs basketball operations it came from Jeanie's end of the business according to Lakers PR man John Black

1st. I dislike Dwight Howard


On to the topic at hand...

How does it make sense to put up "stay Dwight" banners across Staples but then refuse to do the one thing Dwight wants--firing MDA?

This just shows how dysfunctional management is. Make up your mind...do you want to roll over for D12 or make a stand against him.
