Dwight Howard to become a Laker?

Posted by slammo in Dwight Howard, Lakers


Dwight Howard will be a free agent in summer 2012. Sources close to him say he’s interested in Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks. Howard will only stay in Orlando as long as they’re championship contenders which will not happen this season and unlikely the next. It would be silly for Howard to go to New York, his play style doesn’t compliment Amar’e Stoudemire’s. He should follow his father’s footstep and head to the Lakers. His father being Shaq, of course.

Otis Smith’s desperate trade of bringing back Turk, adding Gilbert Arenas and Jason Richardson did not make them better significantly. Howard is the only consistent player on the Magic. No one has stepped up to be #2 or #3 option. Jameer Nelson’s play dropped off significantly and will most likely be used to trade for a backup big man. With Matt Barnes and Mickael Pietrus gone, they have no good defender to throw at Kobe, Pierce, LeBron. They are not an elite team right now. Sunday’s game against Boston Celtics proves my point.
