Dwight Howard Confirms He Signs with Rockets

Recommended Posts

Per ESPN. Might wanna hold the presses with the current state of media though, they say he hasn't notified the Rockets yet but, he told all other teams he won't be signing with them.

Now... Worst trade ever by the Lakers?

And apparently Cuban admitted they were moving forward as well, if I heard correctly on NBAtv earlier.

Lol, as I said...

UPDATE: apparently, in true D12 fashion, Howard's agent told Yahoo! Sports that he has not finalized his decision.

Let's hope the Lakers doesnt go TANK MODE. Bc we all know if they do, they will be guarantee the no1 pick for Andrew Wiggins.

I was really hoping that Howard would go to GSW in a trade for Barnes so he could at least come and help the Lakers be somewhat competitive. Knowing Kobe being a competitive person it's hard to imagine that he'll sit out, but Cowherd made a good point this morning that it would be wise for the Lakers to sit Kobe out for the season with him coming back from the Achilles injury.

Well according to what I just read the Warrior are still in play for D12 as well, they would have to do a sign and trade now though involving Bogut and either Thomspon or Barnes. I'd say Barnes would likely be in the deal since they just signed iggy.

Rockets are going to be a fun team to watch.

I'd like to see them add in Josh Smith too. Now, that'd be a fun team.

The Rockets are going to have to move Lin, Asik or both to make the D12 deal work. Anyway, with that I can't see a Harden, Parson, Howard team being any better than what it is last season if they don't bring in another guy like Smith.

No doubt about it... The Lakers will get a top 3 pick.

Even with this move, I don't see the Rockets being any better. The west is still run by OKC and the Spurs with Memphis and the Clippers peeping in. If the Spurs are able to add a Monta Ellis, AK47 or both they will easily win the West bc they have two of the greatest men alive: Pop and Duncan.

    • A team might have a lot more injuries than the opposing team. Keeps a fair balance.
    • Its purpose is to ensure a level playing field. Say you have everyone active but Team A has five players injured while Team B only has one. Team A now has a perceived advantage because they technically have a deeper roster. Forcing both teams to sit 8 players is meant to nullify that possibility.
    • It all comes down to Rivera.   Are the Panthers good enough to go on the road and win a game against a so-so team that sucked last year and has a rookie QB in his third ever game?  Yes. Will there be any sign that this coaching staff understands how to do that? That is the question. Backs against the wall, staring down 0-3 and the increasing likelihood that if this thing goes south in a hurry heads will roll... I’d like to think we’ll come out 1-2, but... I still think the Panthers will go into AZ underprepared.  They will underperform.  Maybe it will be close at some point, but I just see the little mistakes adding up to some truly unfortunate momentum changes in this game. On the road, every mistake is magnified. AZ has nothing to lose and will be relaxed and focused.  Panthers will start out looking like they could win this thing, then there will be lapses in focus and suddenly AZ has the ball in good field position. Plus...and I mean this for real...the best narrative for the NFL is the rise of Murray and the decline of the Panthers.  I find that games like this often favor which ever story is the best narrative for the corporate interest.  What helps the NFL more: Kyle Allen leads a mediocre Panthers over and even more mediocre Cardinals, OR Murray balls out and puts up a highlight reel as the lowly Panthers trip over their own stupid feet? The second one. Probably another grinding loss. Panthers 20 Cardinals 27
