According to ESPN, Dwight Howard will not re-sign with the Lakers.

 

There is very little chance of Dwight Howard re-signing with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, according to sources close to the situation.

 

Let the speculation begin... lol.

Well, dayum.

 

I'm guessing Mavs or Rockets.  Mavs probably win out.

 

Man, Kupchack looks really dumb right now.

I should have linked his comment on the Rockets...

 

Apparently Howard is concerned with the Rockets style of play...

 

It seems like the Mavs are the most likely destination, but if they can't afford him... we sure as heck can.

Kobe sits out the year, Lakers get Wiggins and compete for the next 15 years

Has absolutely nothing to do with Kupchak.  Kupchak didn't choose Pringles, that honor goes to Jimmy Buss.  Had they hired Phil last year, or Brian Shaw this year D12 would be a lock to stay....

 

Also I take anything Broussard says with a HUGE grain of salt.  Not that I think D12 is going to stay because I don't as long as Pringles is the coach, but Mr. "Multiple Sources" Broussard is a complete hack....

LOL, that's the first I'd ever heard of him being referred to as Pringles, and yet, I knew exactly who you were referring to.  Awesome.

 

BUT, I don't think it's just on D'antoni.  I think it has to do with Kobe as well.  D12 wants to be the man, but when he is the man, he doesn't want all of the pressure.  With Kobe, he doesn't get to be the man, but still gets all the pressure because Kobe put it on him.

I don't think he minds Kobe nearly as much as some people like to assume he does. When you're the best Center in the league and asked to run the floor and rebound but the ball doesn't get to you in the paint consistently it's pretty frustrating I would think. I wouldn't want to play for that functional retard either if I was D12.  No hard feelings if Dwight ends up leaving Showtime, because Jimmy fuged this up royally....

If I was Howard, I'll choose the Mavs.  Cuban has shown to be a great owner and also a loyal owner with the way Dirk and him have worked together.  Dirk hasn't even had an agent ever.  Granted, Dirk is a LOT more level headed than Howard, but still.

LOL Right?! The first thing I thought of was "Somehow the Lakers are gonna get Wiggins and be a top 5 team for years to come". On the topic of Dwight though...do NOT want. He is such a baby. Granted the talent is there (obviously) but there is no guarantee if we got him that he would stay beyond a year or whatever time span he decides is too much time. Probably about 2 weeks here.
