Good. Nobody is scared of a SG who NEEDS to run to dominate games and a center who needs the halfcourt and touches to do the same. Huge conflict of styles.

Nothing personal, just think your front office handled this like dick. I mean they did NOTHING to the roster to convince Dwight, kept a fail coach.. then the cherry on top is Kobe in a meeting telling Dwight he NEEDS to learn how to win the right way under him? I mean comon dude... you think it's classless that I laugh at a blunder that bad? The arrogance of the "We don't need you" thing may have set the franchise back BIGTIME. Your roster still has too much talent to have a shot at a top 5 pick.

Im not sure I understand what Karma you are referring to and why people are making a major deal of this. This does not make Houston any kind of favorites and does not provide the Rockets with a great chance at winning a title. The Lakers on the other hand were not going to win with Dwight and the roster they had. Dwight is a major liability on the offensive end and I feel is being severely overrated by many fans.

Before the seaosn started he said the ball would run through Nash and dwight, and he would take his opportunities when they arrived.

Once the season began Kobe was chucking and ball handling at a career high, and treating Dwight in the media like he was a damn rookie.

I'm really sick of the Howard talk by people acting like he's Lebron and this is 2010

Baby bro Gasol also has a great point here. Dwight has been on the decline for 2 years now and doubt he will ever again be 2010 Dwight, clearly on the decline, even if a slow one. So people need to stop acting like AUTOMATICALLY Houston is a title contender. I think this moves them from 6-7 seed to 3-4 seed but not finals team.

This might be true, but it's also the reason the rest of the team played like crap, and it's also the reason mike D is there while Dwight Howard is not.

The logic you're using here doesn't make any sense. The rest of the team played like crap because it wasn't a deep team, there were multiple injuries, and the FO chose Mike D'antoni, not Kobe Bryant.

How does Kobe playing great all season have to do with any of that?

Pau never quit on the Lakers, even with the rumors of us trading him. We baby Dwight, he plays like a POS, and leaves us. Dwight is just a bad human being.

Murderers are bad human beings.

Just don't get it. Their style of play makes no sense for him. Harden has to have the ball in his hands, and they just love to jack up 3's all night.

Crap now we got Dwight to deal with 5 times a season

I hope Splitter can slow him down

now my best bet is 2015, when the lakers can go after Love, Rondo and Aldridge

Daryl Morey, you magnificent chubby man. I love you.

How far have the Rockets come from July 2012 where they had no Lin, no Asik, no Harden. Just Parsons.

Now bring on LMA.
