Default Explain why Dwight would stay in L.A.? He has no reason to.

Why would Dwight stay in a situation where A) he doesn't like the coach or the coach's system, B) gets no appreciation or understanding from the fans, his fellow players, or even the ownership for having a bad year even though he was told after his back surgery he might not ever play again, and C) plays with a guy who is unwilling to give up the title of it being his team. Not to mention D) shitty bench, and E) injuries galore for everyone else.

This is not a knock at anyone necessarily, I have nothing against L.A. fans, like Kobe, in fact I'd place most of the blame on D'Antoni and Jim Buss.

So tell me, why the **** would Dwight stay in L.A.? Because its the Lakers and because the weather is great? That's not good enough.

Big market. It's Los Angeles. Every player loves L.A. And I hate that. It's good enough for your favorite NBA player to have a house out there. Dwight also wants to pursue acting.

Assuming winning is his main priority, there is no reason. LA's current management, players and coaching staff are ****ing horrible.

They won't have a "full season" with Kobe being sidelined for half the year.

Truthfully, I wouldn't blame him for leaving L.A. When I was younger I played baseball for almost a decade, and when the season was over I played in the fall leagues to keep conditioning and practice. On one of those teams I had a coach that was so out of control, I quit the team after a game. I missed a foul tip catch as a catcher, and when the inning was over he grabbed my jersey and slammed me up against the dugout fence and verbally reamed me a new one. Spit in my face and all. After the game was over I packed all my gear up, told him to go **** himself and I quit. I realize that's not exactly the same situation with Dwight, but I would be a hypocrite if I said I wished he would stay in a situation he didn't want to be in. Personally, I don't believe D'Antoni will use Dwight the way he should be used. No hard feelings if he leaves. Whatever team he goes too will be blessed to have him. I'm sure he will be close to being his normal self again before the surgery.
