Nets are obviously very good right now. La looks ruined.

Does Dwight bolt to Brooklyn if this season is a fail?

He's in it for the money, LA gives him the most in endorsements and the only team who can pay him an incredible amount of money. Hes not leaving.

In all seriousness, he might, but I don't think he's leaving. I don't think the Nets can get him anyways. No way LA only accepts a Max Deal Lopez in a trade-back

no but i think he regrets opting in. as a heat fan i am glad to see the nets get joe johnson and not d12.

Dwight has enough money. He's getting a max deal. He's inked to a ludicrous Adidas deal plus everything else he's done. The dude when his career is over is capable of making a half a billion dollars. Wtf is he looking to buy that he's so worried about money for?

Question for the OP: how can Dwight end up in Brooklyn? He has no leverage unless he wants to sign the MLE. The Lakers should just call his bluff. He's not bolting to Houston or Dallas and Brooklyn, the Clippers and the Knicks are off of the table. He has nowhere to go.

DoMeFavors
11-24-2012, 07:55 PM
He could take the MLE if he wants to come here and start at PF for us. But he has to realize that Nash,Kobe,Artest will be gone in 2 years and he will be the only superstar playing without another star.

That's actually interesting, it would mean the Lakers don't have a future but could win in the next season or two uniting the key pieces from phoenix. It would take another + (draft picks/or somone better than Novak) though cause of Amare health.

Try Rondo, Dwight + 3 shooters.


You have the best assist-man, defensive and rebounding PG in the game with the best rebounding and shot-blocking and interior defensive C in the game.


Rondo's J is inconsistent, but he can get to the cup, and Dwight can finish well around the rim. Both suck at free throw shooting, but both absolutely LOVE TO PLAY DEFENSE, and Rondo can get 15+ assists as a Laker PG.

Rondo and Boston management have never fully seen eye-to-eye. If he sees that he can't get through the Heat in the East, he's going to move West.

Pierce and Garnett seem like the die-hard C's that wouldn't touch a Lakers uniform, but for some reason, Rondo doesn't come off as that. I'm sure he's happy to be part of the Celtics tradition, but it's not all or nothing for him.


I could definitely see Rondo in a Lakers uniform running the show in LA after Pierce and Garnett go extinct in 2-3 yrs. (As will Kobe by that time)

says who? last time i checked dallas was one of the 2-3 teams he was willing to go to, and with the addition of harden Houston has become a very tempting destination....although he has his back issues it doesnt seem as if he is playing w/ the same intensity as he usually does, who is to say he isnt just using LA as just a place holder until off-season

He'll realize he was forced to somewhere he didn't want to go and figure out a way to come back to Florida in a different uniform. He'll probably take a vet min to play for the Heat because that's how much he hates to play alongside someone who takes 25 shots a game while he takes only 7.

I think he's past the point of listening to reason. His dramatic last 2 years in Orlando made me hade him as a person. I don't want him to carry the torch.

Dirk, Duncan, and Paul Pierce are the 3 most loyal franchise players in the business. And you know what it paid off for all of them. Their fan bases love them, they all got paid, and they all got to win. There is something to be said for a true sense of loyalty in sport.

Solid season for Brook Lopez but Dwight holds no leverage and Lakers are not a team that allows it's players to run the show. They will not be bullied into receiving Brook Lopez for Dwight freaking Howard. Will not happen.

Also there is the fact that the Nets cannot sign Howard so the Lakers would have to feel a legit threat that Dallas or Houston is going to sign him for LA to even consider trading him.

With his back issues i see no way that Howard leaves money on the table even for the promise of contending in Brooklyn.

Haven't really spent much time in the NBA forum recently -- lucky me, huh? -- but who the **** allowed you to gloss yourself as captain of the Nets' fan-base? Despite the fact that you're clearly trolling (and relishing in it), I feel like it's a bit unfair to the (few) Nets fans on PSD to have you as the poster boy (see what I did there?) for the Nets' fan-base. As one of the few Nets fans in existence, I'm embarrassed.

By the way, Lopez is a terrible fit for D'Antoni's offense. Terrible. Too slow; too much inside game; too slow of a shot release; too inconsistent of a shot. D'Antoni might even prefer Jamison to Lopez (taking contracts into consideration).

Some of you Lakers fans really surprise me. I guess I can relate to being a bit spoiled as a Yankees fan; but some of what I see here (I have to remind myself that it is PSD) is ridiculous. The Lakers still have plenty of time to figure it out. They have the best starting lineup in the league -- they'll be fine.

And Dwight will be fine going forward. He's a Laker. The Lakers always find a way to field a contender.

Interesting timing by the OP:

1. The Lakers just hours ago blasted one of the teams mentioned here (Dallas) with Dwight dominating on the defensive end. When he wasn't, he was the #1 hype man laughing and cheering with and for his teammates.
2. The Lakers are 14 games in and are just approaching the 17 game (Miami was 9-8 in the first season of their big signings playing together).
3. The Lakers are 4-2 in their last 6 games WITHOUT their 1st and 2nd string point guard.

It's not that simple at all. D'Antoni may be an offensively talented coach, but he has a system he sticks to and requires a certain type of player at positions like PG and C. Amare is probably the prototypical D'Antoni center, an athletic guy who finishes strong on pick and rolls and can shoot a quick midrange jumper. Lopez's game overall is somewhat slow, making him far from a perfect fit.

Question is... would Howard with the Nets minus Brook Lopez get further than the Lakers?

Hmmm i actually would lean more towards the Nets. They biggest issues happen to be the things Howard is elite at.

If he were in Brooklyn he would be the man, the center of attention, and the best center to play there, not the 3rd, 4th, or 5th best center to play in LA. And, I think that's what he wanted.

You probably haven't been watching the Lakers play then. Dwight is clearly not 100%. He looked exhausted on our road trip. The dude just isn't there yet and he's still putting in solid numbers.

We also don't have a point guard. Imagine any team without their starting or backup pg, one of whom the offense is designed for.

I'm shocked that DMF didn't create this thread.

My 'Magic Johnson Ball' predicts the future:

1) Lakers fail to advance in the 2012 playoffs
2) Dwightmare 2.0 ensues
3) Prompting Buss Jr. to listen to his ego and S&Ts D12 + fillers for STAT + Tyson.

....

OK, I shook my ball again and it now says:

1) Dwight will re-up
2) Lakers trade Pau+Ron for JSmoove
3) Kobe retires due to Hep B complications.
