Good. He should. Let's not pretend they're going to end up with the lineup you said though.

The problem is, I love GSW and don't like Dwight, so that would annoy me. Also I love Barnes (who there's a huge chance would be part of this) and don't like the Lakers, so that would annoy me. Lame.

But yeah, they should be a prime location for a guy like Dwight, and I'm surprised it took this long.

I just don't see it happening honestly, not that I wouldn't want someone like Barnes, but why would Gstate do this?

Bogut, Lee, Barnes, Klay, and Steph is a sick lineup. They haven't really given it a fair shake yet with all those injuries, and still check out how far they made it.

I just don't think the Dubs should break up something this good for a guy like Howard.

Warriors just traded into the draft to take a SF, which they dont really need. I think they are looking unload Harrison Barnes... his name has been floating around awhile.

Kyben36

would have to be a trade, LA reportedly wont trade Dwight (which I doubt in the end) as well, how do they get Iggy ??? magic. they have Thompson dont they.

IndiansFan337
06-27-2013, 10:40 PM
LAL isn't going to take Lee for him. LAL will demand Barnes or Thompson or just say too bad we aren't doing a S&T to help him get that extra money. And I believe GS is over the cap so then could not sign Howard. They have some very overpaid players on expiring contracts, including Bogut and Jefferson.

I think the only way this would work is if GS gives in on Barnes or Thompson, or if LAL would take an expiring contract in exchange for a lot of 1st rounders to replenish the ones they dumped for Nash. I don't think LAL would do that latter deal though.

Soooooooo..... How does a team over the cap get Dwight and Iggy when the Lakers have already said they'll refuse to trade Dwight? Especially to a division rival...

I would take klay and Barnes for him rookie contracts and players with upside. If I were the warriors don't know if I'd risk ruining the locker room that has been built with this head case. With that said it could make them a legit contender if it works. I also think we become a little better than last year overall moving Pau to the C and getting some good athletic young players who can add some shooting and much needed wing defenders.

Maybe the fans of the Lakers, a team investing millions of dollars on large signs in busy areas of Los Angeles targeting Howard, should stop insulting him with terms such as "head case" and maybe he'd be more willing to stay?

Klay and Barnes aren't available for Howard. You can have either Lee or Bogut along with Klay. Trade benefits both teams, especially if you guys get Bogut.

He is a head case and if fans calling him a head case drives him to leave that kind of proves the point don't you think? Also as the warriors GM thank you for taking the time to fill us in here at PSD on who's available for who. Also no one wants Bogut Pau at C is 10 x better than bogut.

He is going to resign with the lakers. Does the rockets hava a nice young team yes? But supposely he wants his own team but you have james harden down there, also you have Asik who stays in the paint and it will clogg the paint with both him and d12 and gives him no room to operate. Dallas, he has Dirk and thats it, why would he leave LA to go to dallas, its easier to attract players to play with you in LA than Dallas, especially when the Lakers have cap room in 2014. Kobe will be out until atleast Christmas, so it will basicslly be D12's team. Im pretty sure Kupchak has told dantoni to focus on d12 on offense, and kupchak has relayed that msg to howard and his agent.

As for Howard, after last year how could anyone like this guy? I know I don't.

Woah there man. Sure Peyton is a bigger star than Dwight, but LeBron is the best thing we have in this entire league and his decision changed the entire landscape of this league.

3. Don't join up with other good players.

1. Don't hold a one hour show dedicated entirely to yourself and your opinion.

2. Don't say winning multiple championships will be easy.

3. Don't team up with 2 other superstar franchise players to make it a virtual guarantee you will win titles.

This is why a lot of people, including a vast majority of the nba legends and former players were put off by LBJ and his decision debacle.

I doubt Dwight will engage in the sane behavior.

next time before you spew trash to the internet, do some research.

http://www.forbes.com/athletes/list/

lebron is number 4, peyton is 19 in a more popular American sport.
from endorsements alone, lebron almost makes 4 times as much as peyton. (42 to 12).

LeBron's stardom is diminishing, yet he's getting more endorsement deals and is now among the most sought out athlete to endorse overseas, but yeah his stardom is diminishing since the decision right? :rolleye:

06-29-2013, 01:40 PM
my oh my Lebron fans if you don't follow the NFL don't comment on it. As simple as that. You clearly don't know the size of the star of Peyton Manning. And let's not even think of the sentence 'Lebron is finna be a top 5 player all-time' until his career is further progressed at least.
Lebron already makes it hard enough to like him, the fans don't need to make it impossible.


and this is a Dwightmare thread anyway. Personally I for one hope Dwight turns his career/image around. And that is coming from a guy who absolutely hated him even in Orlando.
But He was actually a pretty humble nice guy early on in his career. He made some life mistakes, like taking everything for granted and look where it got him. One of the most hated NBA stars. He, just like Lebron, needs to go clear his head somewhere. Whether that's on some island vacation or somewhere to have a sober week to just clear his mind and figure out how he wants to be perceived. Because right now those two are ticking-time bombs, it's only a matter of time before they say something completely idiotic and self-centered, selfish, annoying, immature, uneducated, passive-aggressive, "victim-card".

I actually want to like these 2 freaks of nature.

edit: btw Nothing wrong with Dwight deciding on the 10th, unless he meant like the Decision to come on TV and do it.

If I was Howard, the only teams I'm talking to outside the Lakers are the Rockets, Mavericks... and I maybe have some exploratory discussion with the Blazers seeing if they can clear some more cap to sign him.

they were a perimeter team because they didn't have a post player. Asik is big but not a post player and neither their army of power forwards. only DMo had a post game but he isn't strong enough to play the post.

I hate Bill Simmons, but he sumed up Howard perfectly early last season. He said Howard is good because he is the most athletic big and that it looked like he lost a step. He was injured so he might get it back, but Howard has a very poor post game. The Rockets are the best fit, but he wants to be fed in the post.

If he was smart he would except being the 2nd option on the Rockets and focus on getting back to DPOY style defense. He isn't a first option. 2nd option and defensive anchor is what he is can he except that role? If he can he could win some championships with Harden.

This.

Every time I hear a Pau rumor I feel pretty ******. Pau is a true Laker at this point in my opinion, and I can't really imagine him leaving. I respect what he has done. That is why I would only trade him if it is some sort of deal where you can't say no.

With Dwight, however, I never developed that feeling.

i know but if we are going to be relevant again, he will be a part of it if he decide to play for the Rockets.

hopefully with a new city, new team, things would be different here.

The way the Rockets make room for CP3 and Howard is basically giving away some players for future 1st picks . Example

Bucks : Incase Jennings doesn't return trade Lin to them for a 2nd next year and a protected 1st

Spurs : Trade them Thomas Robinson for a future pick

Mavs : Sign Howard first and then trade them Asik for a draft pick to make room for CP3

Sign Chris Paul , but you this all depends on prior agreement of course . Tell the teams we have these deals agreed upon Incase a certain situation plays out . Rockets need to meet with Howard and Paul and work their magic . This is the only way they will be able to sign both of these guys . They can't resign anyone until they get Howard and Paul for cap purposes

The heat fan trolling is just talkin ish. Most lakers fans don't care whether he comes back or not. Lebron made a bad decision, learned from it and grew. Dwight skips the last two steps and keeps saying/ leaking things that don't show maturity. When nobody on tht team plays defense and leaves him hanging he will be pissed. When he feels harden is taking all the last shots, he will be pissed. His self esteem needs to be catered to 24/7. And these billboard signs we're putting up are ridiculous.

i'm not worried about Morey able to create cap space if Chris Paul decide to play in Houston.

you can simply trade Asik for maybe a couple of picks, a first and a second would be sold really fast.

same with T-Rob, he can be traded for a first rounder this past draft if Morey wanted to.

the only problem would be Lin's contract. send Lin and maybe Royce White plus the picks you acquired from trading Asik and T-Rob then you have your cap space.

if i was the Rockets GM, this is how i'll do it to make cap space for Paul.

It's not really "a decision" when the Lakers don't really even want to keep him (Kobe doesn't like him, Pau would rather not keep him, Dantoni doesn't like or need him, Buss/Kupchak don't want to lock him into a max contract before the 2014 free agent bonanza, etc) and when the other teams are kinda lukewarm on him. For instance Dallas would probably like to sign him, but they are wary of the ripoff factor, the way the Lakers were last season and also the Dirk situation.

So, uh, is it really a show when all you do is announce what team decided to make you an offer?

I doubt the Lakers are even answering phone calls from Dwight's agents at this point.

I doubt Dwight will engage in the sane behavior.

In LeBron's defense, his TV specials helped raise over $2 million for the Boy's and Girl's club. Sure his decision was a shot to many of his fans, but I don't understand how people can hate a guys so much that gives back so much to the community.

Dwight never had a dominant ball handling perimeter player playing with him in Orlando. Closest to that would be Nelson. Here you have James Harden, a star in the NBA with superstar potential.

Its not gonna be Dwight + 3pt shooters everywhere. Its gonna be Dwight + A SG who likes to have the ball.

This guy is a diva he wants to be in the spot light, he wants attention, he can leave anytime he wants, just think about how bad it looks to be on 3 different teams years in 2 years..he doesn't want people to hate him, but if he leaves good Luck I'm still a lakers fan he is a good player when healthy, and we need him but I really hate DanTonie and Jim buss ^^ this all would be avoided with phone call to Phil Jackson

I honestly don't see how Dwight will fit with the Rockets. Its a perimeter based team where he definitely won't be the go to guy.

They wouldn't so perimeter based if Asik was a complete opposite player, if DREAM was on this squad it would be same inside pass out to wide open 3pt shooters, that's how DWIGHT will change the style play slightly,its sort of like ORL but a better version

its not like in la where bean was being bullheaded and taking away everybodys game in the process

he took away post touches from PAU/DWIGHT by being in the post plus the system was not suited for his style, that's where you have it confused with la and Houston, they are more than willing to feed the big or keep him involved at worst

bean took away nash and got all the assists

Houston and dallas are good choices

Why would Phil want to coach again? The only guy I think he would coach for is LeBron, he likes to tie himself to the best.

boo hoo, its no different than if a team(s) trades a player multiple times to benefit they team via a trade or cap space

see Q RICH for small example

if HOWARD plays vital role in any team advancing deep and possibly another FINALS trip for him,then all that will cease to exist, see LEBRON for small example

plus to me the player name that you use is the biggest diva, he beefed with SHAQ for 8yrs ran him off for SMUSH/KWAME and then cried to be traded to CHI because la front office broke promises made to acquire more talent and in the same breath told la/chi that DENG could not be part of the deal

That is true he probably would coach Lebron the best player in the world, and Lakers are the ones that passed up PJ, he would not have turned down a chance to coach Howard, they already text each other and talk to each other, plus he's still in the lakers organization, if PJ believes this team can contend for a chip he will coach them again.. He even said in the right circumstanses he would consider it. most laker fans thought it was a done deal when we got all the hall of fame guys...but I knew after the couple per season games this wasn't going to work out and it didn't.... All I know is Dantonie and Howard can't coexist unless he changes the system.

If Dwight actually resigns with LAL I know yall are gonna celebrate harder than Miami did for winning the title. Probably a parade out in LA.

I'll give you this...Dwight is extremely overrated. No matter where he goes, all he's gonna do is cause drama and ****** up the team chemistry. That's guaranteed. I hate the Lakers so I kinda want him to stay in LA cause its fun to watch him rip that once storied franchise apart.

Official trade would work like this

Biedrens + Bogut + Three First Rounders for Dwight + Jordan Hill

You get two expiring contracts, which is about 22 million in cap space, plus Kobe's expiring deal, and Pau. Lakers get a fresh start and three first rounders.

The second is the outside potential of the trade for the Lakers. They get to be awful on purpose and attempt to get Wiggins.

Wiggins potentially to the Lakers, tons of cap space, and three future first rounders.

That could be true, but Howard never said he was upset with the number of touches, just upset as to how they used him. The few Laker games I watched, I would see Howard go down to the block and nobody could stop him and he would score on 2 or 3 straight possessions, then Kobe would take 3 shots, Pau would take a few jumpers and Metta would chuck from the corner. Dwight would lose an offensive rhythm and sometimes wouldn't even get past half court before Kobe or Metta was jacking up something awful.

Lin , Harden , Parsons , Bosh , Howard is horrible ? Heat are totally Missusing Bosh , Asik down there will guard the paint and Lebron can work with T Rob just like he did with JJ Hickson . The Heat are talented enough to make it to the Finals again with Cole , Wade , Lebron , Haslem/T Rob , Asik. Rebounding and playing big was their biggest problem. So if you get Asik , Robinson and a couple 1st for Bosh I think they would entertain it.

I seen your trade proposals, why would the HEAT help Houston build a super team?

Why would the HEAT trade Bosh for Aisk and fillers?

Are you under the impression that the HEAT need to trade Bosh because of the repeater tax?

Hosuton wanted Bosh pretty badly, in the summer of 2010, do you know what the GM told him... If you sign with the HEAT, it will not work out, you'll be lucky to win 50 games there (because Miami had to feel out their roster).

In short, the HEAT organization know what they are doing... and they will not trade Bosh for that package you have stated. Pat Riley wants to dominate the league for 10yrs, so I am sure they are thinking of creative ways to do so. You should be more afraid of, what if Pat has Bynum or Howard in his sight.

1. Don't hold a one hour show dedicated entirely to yourself and your opinion.

3. Don't team up with 2 other superstar franchise players to make it a virtual guarantee you will win titles.

This is why a lot of people, including a vast majority of the nba legends and former players were put off by LBJ and his decision debacle.

I doubt Dwight will engage in the sane behavior.

LOL. He could've just as easily given 2 million to the boys and girls club under the table. People hate him.because of what he did. He joined 2 superstar franchise players to guarantee himself a championship. Can't blame people for hating him and can't blame him for wanting to pkay in Miami and make it easy on him to win a title.
