It sounds crazy to say, but I think our only chance at either is to get both...

No mention of Charlotte obviously, but MJ needs to be all over this. Not many teams can afford both.

I know we have sucked for a long time, but I would hope they would rather come play for Charlotte than Atlanta... Then again, Howard is from there.

It did say Howard doesn't want to play there. Didn't say why, but that may mean he wouldn't want to play in Charlotte either. Still, MJ and Pat need to get on the phone.

I'm guessing Houston wouldn't be capable of getting both?  Nor Dallas I wouldn't think.  Or the Lakers.  Or the Clippers.  Unless there's a lot of maneuvering pieces/sign & trades, etc.

 

ATL could seem probable.  Long shot, but it would be exciting.

They could come here and make this their franchise.   Playing in places like LA, Boston, stars will always share the spotlight with the past, but here they could become legends.

DeAndre Jordan, Jamal Crawford and Eric Bledsoe for Dwight Howard (in a sign and trade)

 

why Clippers do it:

CP3 has not gotten along with Jordan very well. Wants to play with Howard.

 

why Lakers do it:

if they don't do a sign and trade- they will most certainly lose Howard for nothing to ATL or someone else.

Kobe always loved playing with Caron and was mad when LA traded him to Washington a few years ago.

 

 

Clippers:

PG - Chris Paul

SG - Jordan Crawford

SF - Matt Barnes

PF - Blake Griffin

C  - Dwight Howard

 

Lakers:

PG - Eric Bledsoe

SG - Kobe Bryant

SF - Caron Butler

PF - Pau Gasol

C  - DeAndre Jordon

If it wasn't for DeAndre's contract I would probably do that as a Lakers fan.  Bledsoe has the tools to be a star PG in this league....

Yeah I see both teaming up on an LA team, or another big market team.

 

BUT..if Chris Paul wanted to come back home, this would be the opportunity to do so.  Anywhere he and Howard went together would be an instant legit contender, and maybe Paul could convince Howard to come..IDK.  I dont know how NBA players feel about Charlotte.  Would just seem to me that with the name change back to the Hornets and Paul growing up in NC, that he would be a frigging legend if he came here and won a title..Same with Howard. 

 

We'll see what happens but Im already getting excited that they are talking about playing together.  If they TRULY do want to play together, I think we have a shot at it.

Can't see why either want to play with each other though...

 

Dwight couldn't play with Kobe...CP3 is just as big of a competitor/dick as Kobe.  CP3 feuded with Jordan and Blake all year because they weren't serious enough.  Dwight is going to finally be serious?  Chemistry problems waiting to happen more than likely if they pair up.
