Dwight Howard Confirms He Signs with Rockets

103 posts in this topic

Houston is going to be a contender. You tools laughed when they traded for harden, and most are laughing at this signing. Rondo and smith are next, followed by a ring.

They are not good enough to beat the Heat, Thunder, Pacers, Spurs, Clippers and possibly Spurs as currently constructed.  Adding Smith makes them worse offensively honestly, because he just chucks up threes at a very inefficient rate.  Rondo is a pipe dream for them, Celtics are trying to shed salary, not add it by paying Lin 15 million next year....

I'm glad Howard decided against going back to LA.  He's ok with me, now.  Wooh, that Southwest division is going to be tough to get out of.  There's a chance every team in that division could end up above .500, especially with the moves the Pelicans and Rockets have made.  I also expect Dallas to make some moves as well.

Yeah if this rumor holds true, the Rockets, even with Dwight as mentally soft as he is, are an automatic contender. If they get Josh Smith, they are a serious threat to win it all. It's gonna be hard to convince another team to take on Asik's contract though.

Asik's contract is fine, 8 million for two years for one of the best defensive centers in the NBA.  It's Lin's contract that is poison....

Houston will be a good team, but how good will they be even by adding Dwight? They have zero depth behind Harden, Parsons, and Dwight. I don't think that they will compete for a championship right away. They will be really good though and will win 50-55 games imo.

It's still not official though, and Dwight is flying to LA to meet with Mitch. He's probably just telling him face to face, but there was also a rumor out there that Dwight will give LA one last chance to get him to resign (presumably by firing MDA). I think it was started by Alex Kennedy and he said that his sources are "very very reliable". Still 99% sure that he goes to Houston though. Obviously I'd like him back, because he is an allstar C, but I really won't be all that upset if he does go to Houston... I don't think that LA fans really warmed up to him last season so there's really no sentimental value there.

LeBron to the Lakers after next season to team up for Kobe's last year. win a championship, and take over for the new Showtime Lakers.

Also, I want to add, a team consisting of Harden, Parsons, and Chandler is a very, very strong team. The pick and roll that could be ran would be devastating, if D12 plays like he means it and doesn't slack off.

LeBron isn't coming to the Lakers without Dwight Howard there.  He would have to wait another year to get a guy like Kevin Love to play with....
