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.

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.

I wouldn't say that, I just think that he goes out a limb and he's not always right.

 

He was the first one that reported that Paul was upset with the Clippers organization over Del *****... a few days later... Del ***** gets canned.

Broussard has been wrong more than he's been right.  Last year he said for a week that D12 to the Nets was imminent then two months later he was traded to the Lakers.  Broussard is an absolute joke when it comes to sports journalism....

You must hate Cam Newton... 

 

I look at it the same way that I look at the Newton situation... there childish antics (moping, poor press conferences, side line demeanor) is because they are very fierce competitors who want to win more than anything.

 

It's clear that it's not about money because L.A. can offer Howard the most money.

I agree, he makes a lot of his stuff up (or his sources are deaf).

 

Hopefully he wouldn't make up this story just to say that he was the first to report it.

I think he's just making poo up (as far as actually having sources saying Dwight has already made his mind up.  That said, anybody could make observation that Howard is unhappy in Pringles system.  The sad thing for Lakers fans, is that if Jeanie had been given control when Dr. Buss died this wouldn't even have been an issue.  Pringles would have finished out the year, been handed his walking papers and Phil or Brian Shaw would be the coach and there would be no questions on whether or not Dwight was staying to be the focal point of the Triangle going forward....
