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.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
