What a way to go out. Swept in the playoffs, and DQed in the last game.

Do you think he will be with the Lakers next season?

No, he's going to Cleveland.

He got the two techs purposely so he wouldn't have to play the whole game or face the home crowd.

He's gone....

Asik's better

If Dwight does stay (which I think he will), the lakers need to dump Gasol, metta and Nash somewhere so they can concentrate building around Dwight with some cap space.

I don't think he will be back next year...

Who cares?

04-28-2013, 10:22 PM
Why would he ? The lakers would be foolish not to go into rebuild mode Howard will be retired by the time they make it back to the playoffs

04-28-2013, 11:23 PM
I think he should go to rockets ...

Warriors would be a sick team with him but doubt it would happen.. to me rockets makes most sense ...

I bet he stays. And demands a trade next year.

Yes. The end of the dh12 era in and the start of Kevin love's.

I feel he is going to stay and the Lakers are going to ship off Gasol to properly build around him. They will probably get rid of D'Antoni as well.

Lol what Noah said about Cleveland

wow dead even in voting when I looked. I see absolutely no reason why Dwight would want to come back to the Lakers.

04-29-2013, 02:26 PM
Noah for Dwight.

04-29-2013, 02:30 PM
I hope not!

I don't want Superman to leave plus nobody leaves a guaranteed 30mill on the table

Dwight Howard will be a part of a sign-and trade deal with the Rockets. The Rockets will also acquire Pau Gasol from the Lakers. The Lakers will net a nice Haul: Omer Asik, Terrence Jones, Donatas Motiejunas, and Thomas Robinson along with 2 future 1st rd picks. They would have to incorporate another team but they'll get it done.

LOL Now that my dreaming is over, Dwight will be a Rocket. A sign-and-trade does make sense for the Lakers and Rockets. Lakers can take Asik which nets them a good young center while the Rockets free up cap space to sign Dwight to a max deal and still add some other pieces around him.

Dwight needs a 2nd star, he will fold if left in L.A. to be the man. He needs a team like Houston where he can have great pieces around him, youthful pieces, including another Superstar. He can also feel more comfortable in the Houston market, big but not overwhelming.

With the difference in the state income tax rates, property tax rates, and luxury tax rates between Texas and L.A. the monetary difference in the contracts in the end would be minimal. It would still be millions but not anywhere near $30 million.

04-30-2013, 05:11 AM
There is no chance that Dwight will leave L.A., he knows that he is playing for a franchise with great history and it's only a matter of time before the Lakers will become an elite team once again. Leaving would be a big mistake, especially, when he left Orlando only one year ago.

3 teams in 3 years, is not what superstar centers in their prime do, leaving would really hurt his reputation.

His nightmare is over!... He's gone.

He owes them noting, just because a team trades for you (he didn't demand to be traded to the Lakers) doesn't mean you have to help them out after you are a free agent.

**** the haters and the media... Leave that man alone.

04-30-2013, 06:22 PM
No. Hes going to resign with the lakers but the moment laker fans start to booo the hell out of him in staples when he cant bring them championships hes going to regret ever coming to LA
