Dwight Howard's injured shoulder is turning into a storyline of its own. Mike D'Antoni told the media after the Lakers' 116-95 loss to the Boston Celtics that Howard had been cleared to return to action for awhile but decided to return on Thursday night.


Oh that Hollywood Drama :confused:

I enjoy the taste of Laker fans tears too, but the Lakers are playing this all wrong. Who cares if he is cleared to play, he can't play right now. Why risk further injury if you are playing like **** due to injury? They better trade him, but why the **** would he want to stay on a team that hates him so much!?

You must think you are dealing with the Nuggets or the Magic.

Lakers do not operate like that. They will call his bluff as they should. A bad back and a shoulder that will need surgery? They will dare him to walk away from an extra year at max money.

What the hell could they possibly use from the Nets. Lopez has been amazing this year but he is a piss poor fit for Mike D'Antoni

Lakers had a panic move and now they are paying for it. Destiny has Dwight ending up with the Nets maybe even for the vet min. It will happen.

:laugh2: So what you are saying is he is gonna hit FA and sign a one year deal with the Nets for the minimum then extend for the max later? You are amazing.

Dwight has a herniated disc. For an athlete this is not a thing that just goes away and in fact can lead to more back injuries. he is not gonna risk anything. he will get a max deal for as many years as he can. The question is will that final year mean enough to him that he will resign with LA?

I think it will. Although seeing him in HOU would be a thing of beauty.

Not the perfect way for an athlete with multiple injuries to manage his career and his agent would never advise it.

I mean you are free to dream but at the end of the day an athlete has a very short window to get as much money as possible and an injured player that relies on mostly athleticism will not take such a high risk to join a team that does not even look as promising as he thought (Lakers just beat the Nets without him).

These are billion dollar businesses not high school girl cliques that hold grudges. Keep in mind that at the time Brook Lopez had a broken foot and they never liked him much to begin with. They were right not to go with him. Maybe in hindsight they would have took Brook but if all decisions could be done in hindsight Melo would have been drafted by the Pistons and Kobe by the Nets

Well Dwight said a few days ago he wasnt allowed to come here. so you can use the injury thing as an excuse but Billy and him were engaged in talks a couple of times. I think it just came down too stalling for other teams to jump in.

I actually agree with some of your Howard post... But I actually think that Pat will snatch him in free agency, by getting investors together and offering Howard over 150million dollars.

So that will make up for Howard signing for the low.

Sucks because this year was such a tease. You guys trash it, but we have been destroyed by injuries. Not as bad as the Twolves, but pretty god awful to say the least. We have no depth so we depend on Nash, Kobe, Pau and Dwight so much. Then add in Dwight not looking remotely the same due to his back and shoulder injury, he doesn't look like a top 20 player this year... not even close. Pau has been playing with tendonitis in his knees, plantar fasciatis and now he tears his plantar. Nash broke his ******* leg. Jordan Hill, who is our best bench player has been done for the year for a while now. Kobe has his nights where he doesn't play defense or jack, but he and Earl Clark have been our two most consistent players this year.

Jim Buss might actually really screw this up worse than he already has at this point. It's time for him to admit his mistake and trade Dwight Howard. The Nets still want Dwight Howard and they have an All-Star center waiting to come back whose brother (Robin) played really well in the D'Antoni system.

Brook Lopez has all the tools to spread the floor, get good post-up's with nice touch around the rim and he's improved defensively. The Lakers will never been a defensive juggernaut but they can still get a proven center out of this mess or have a bunch of eggs of their faces if Dwight leaves.

In the end, I think it's time for the Lakers to cut their losses and get something in return. If anything, they could get a couple 1st Round Picks from the Nets too that would make-up for giving up those two 1st round picks to the Suns for Nash.

The team has good chemistry, especially Kobe and Nash. Dwight and Pau don't fit this team but the Lakers need and have to make a move soon.

^That would be a great trade for the Lakers but the Lakers would have to send back salary to bring Wallace in and I doubt the Nets dump him if they get Dwight.

My guess would be Dwight Howard for Brook Lopez & 3 Future 1st Round Picks to get the job done. If I'm Mitch, I start talking with Jim and tell him that it's in his best interest to get an All-Star center in Lopez who would fit perfect in his coaches system then move forward.

Jim's failure is that he thinks he needs some type of proven franchise star to move forward after Kobe but the thing is that the Lakers brand is the most powerful in basketball and any player that plays with All-Star or Franchise Player like ability then the Lakers brand will carry them into the spotlight.

Jerry is an idiot for not picking his daughter to run the basketball side of things but I'm sure they figured or feared that Phil would have too much influence which I don't understand why that is a bad thing.

That is just a stupid thing for 'Antoni to say. Howard is playing hurt. When I threw out my back, x-rays failed to show anything wrong, but I couldn't even stand up straight. I couldn't work. Sprains are the same way, they simply don't show up in any testing. A doctor can clear a person who isn't able to work/play. For 'Antoni to say this in a public forum is stupid. you have to trust your players. If Dwight says he's too hurt to play, then he's too hurt to play. 'Antoni isn't a doctor. And doing this just further alienates the player who you will likely be depending on the most.

'Antoni clearly cannot handle a roster like this. He doesn't have the people skills. Lakers would do well to fire him immediately and let Bernie Bickerstaff finish out the season. Fawk this guy is an idiot.

Everyone is saying 'DAntoni is an idiot, Dwight is obviously hurt'.....I mean really? Write off the word of the doctors and coaches but YOU can tell hes hurt thru the goddamn TV screen. :facepalm:

To me, I didn't see a player who was playing hurt, I saw a player who didn't even want to be playing. A guy who hates his teammates, hates his current situation, hates his coach, and feels bad for himself. Dwight is a puss.
