Dwight Howard doesn't care if waiving his ETO fractured his friendship with D-Will:
"Thatís my decision. Itís my life so if heís upset because I made a decision for me, so be it. If he doesnít want to be friends because Iím on another team, then so be it. Thereís no need to smooth things over, you know?"

Nah not really he changed his mind in Orlando often because quite frankly the front office didn't wanna pay the money to build a good squad around him...
He's been as happy as can be as a laker he's always saying how he intends to sign that max contract next summer

Yep, but I wanted to talk about the last decade which is more important to a player who wanna re-sign long term than thinking about 20-30 years ago when the league was not the same.

Dwight is going to absolutely wreck Brook Lopez tomorrow just to say STFU to Shaq for all those comments about Brook being better.

As far as Deron he is acting like a female. Jesus a friend is a friend and you wanna stop being friends because the guy made an honest mistake? I hope they both grow up.

How far we have come from Lebron's "Decision". Seemed then that Lebron was a d*** but turns out he was the example by which stars should handle FA.

Maybe if Dwight would have just played his contract and STFU he would be in Brooklyn right now happier than ever but instead he put his team through hell and ended up in the place he did not wanna be.

So they were butt buddies when Dwight was in ORL but as soon as he is a Laker Deron becomes "old school" and hates anyone that is not on his team? Seems legit.

This ain't the 1st bridge Dwight has burned. Him & CP3 were originally gonna play together in Dallas, til Dwight start being a little ***** who couldnt make up his mind. So CP3 moved on and they ain't talked since.

At the end of the day, it's Dwight's fault.

See this is a big misconception. Dwight to the Nets would have been wonderful, I wont deny that, but at no point was I completely disgruntled (as a Nets fan) because he wasnt traded to the team. It was actually more of having Dwight on the team would ultimately seal the deal for Deron to be here, which was the biggest concern for our team last year. As well as the constant rumors every single day that after awhile got exhausting.

The way things ended up, and knowing that we have a very good center in Lopez, worked out excellent in terms of bring a real team to Brooklyn.

Heh looking back the only reason it did not happen is because Howard allowed them to pressure him into signing the ETO. It was vrtually a done deal as both Howard and Deron alluded to in recent interviews.

That is why Deron is so salty. he came THAT close to being on a contending team and playing with his friend but now has to watch Brook Lopez throw up soft *** layups and get bullied every game for the next 5 years.

Just asking when Nets are on do you cheer for Lopez when he scores? or are you angry at him? Just enjoy the game you sound always angry. Sounds to me like no matter what you cant be satisfied, you arent happy that Nets are second in the east.

There are fans that can't be happy unless the team is perfect....I know the team has its issues but I believe they can be fixed, if not, then I'll be the same to want some changes.....But not after just 8 games..

1. Yes Dwight does usually beat up on Brook but who doesn't he beat up on. I hope your wrong though.

2. How can you say Deron is acting like a female, he hasn't said a thing until today when he basically is saying who give a ****.

3. Yes Dwight should be in Brooklyn where he always wanted to go but is a whiny little ***** who can't make a decision like a man. Couldn't be the bad guy so instead I'll drag it out more and be an even worse guy by putting my fans through the Dwightmare even longer. Worst decision ever was to sign that ETO.

4. Nobody cares anymore Dwight, you are the only one that can't let it go.

You're trying too hard.

The same way us laker fans feel about not getting cp3 is the same way you feel about not getting dwight.

When Dwight demanded a trade to the Nets for months and months, net fans already knew it was only a matter of time before he was traded there. Instead you ended up settling for an inferior center when you could've had the best pg & C combo in the entire league.

But dont try to sit there and play it off like it doesnt sadden you that Dwight isnt earing a Nets jersey today. You're only making yourself look silly by doing that.

Hahaha, and just who in the heck are you to tell him how he should feel? :confused: He said himself that Dwight to the Nets would've been a wonderful acquisition, so you posting this is only making yourself look silly. Also, Brook may not be Dwight Howard, but he is without question one of the most skilled C's we have in this league, and having him along for the ride in BKN is far from a "bad" thing.

They have a nice team as is. It could've been better, but their owner has now shown that he isn't afraid to spend to help turn his product into a winning one. That's really all you can ask for.

I'm not saddened because it is called moving on. Why dwell on what you could have had rather than enjoy what you do have. The Nets have a solid team in the making that could make noise in the playoffs.....I wanna see what this team can do here on out.

And you're talking about Nets fans....we know what it's like to miss out on big names check LeBron, Bosh, Melo etc.

Yes, I'd LOVE to have a Deron and Dwight combo but I'm not going to see Dwight play or read his name and get emotional about it.

I am not satisfied with mediocrity. Call it a tattoo artist mentality.

He scores and does nothing else thereby negating any advantage his offense may give us. If he was at least average defensively i would be satisfied but he a soft C that shrinks as soon as you put a big physical body on him.

and don't give me that stuff about him blocking lots of shots. That does not equal to good defense.
