The Dwight Howard Drama Unfolds

Recommended Posts

A disproportionately large number, however, don't. It's nice when it happens, but it's really not the sort of thing one can count on.

 

It's not as large as you think. We're trying to be one of those teams who gets those players. I'm confidant in our scouting.

I think whats really sad is that not only do we have pretty bad first round picks that are heavily protected, our second round picks are also protected. I mean really the picks we got back are pretty sad.

One source briefed on Howard's plans told ESPN.com's Marc Stein the All-Star center will indeed stand firm on his intent to play out the 2012-13 season without extending his contract so he can become a free agent on July 1, 2013. ESPN Story

 

 

 

Now the Dwightmare is officially the Lakers problem to deal with.... but wait, they are still celebrating the fact they got Howard... for a year.

How many times does this need to be said, IT WOULD BE BEYOND MORONIC FOR A MAX CONTRACT PLAYER TO EXTEND. Really its obvious he was never going to extend, same reason Bynum isn't going to extend, same reason Dwight's agent said he wasn't even going to extend in Brooklyn.

 

Not sure why people keep bringing this up and really where else is Dwight going to go that has cap? Dallas? Yea right, he will love it in LA.

Because they only have next year to win another championship so that is all they care about. Nash....old, Kobe...getting old, Gasol...best years probably behind him. They dont care about the future only the now, and adding another banner. Also I believe it is to really see how bad a coach Mike Brown is. You cant win with these guys then CYA!!

Harrington sent a couple tweets thanking Denver fans, but really hasn't said anything about Orlando. I'm guessing he of everyone sent here, is the least likely to be happy about it lol.

Thats not the point, if you look at the state of LA it doesnt look good for them in the long term to not atleast get a verbal commit of some kind....

 

Half of the Lakers roster will still be over 33, next year. Dwight doesnt start the season with the Lakers. The Lakers get off to a rough 2012 start, maybe an injury or two happens through out the season. Dwight comes back to alot of expectations that he cannot full fill by himself. The Lakers fail, and get bumped out of the playoffs.

 

If the above scenario played out, what are the chances that a player like Dwight will look at the Lakers and say, "I want to extend"? Knowing full well that they wont be able to flip anyone until 2014, when Dwight is pushing close to 30 yrs of age?

it wouldn't be moronic for bynum.. I would take the money now. if he gets hurt and misses a significant portion of next season and finishes the year on the injury list recovering from another surgery it would be really tough to find a team willing to spend max money on him. if he stays healthy he'll scoop up the majority of the money he's missing out on in a future contract.
