I asked Dwight about his role in Lakers offense. Revelatory answer: "We have years to play with each other, so it's a learning process."


Change the title: Dwight alluding to staying with Lakers?

And be prepared to change the title a couple dozen times before summer.

Its win-win.

Stay, we have long term presence in the middle.

Leave, we'll have tons and tons of cap space with 3 guys to hold us up for a while until we bring in the next STAR.

And he was a 12 year old when he was drafted by Orlando. See what too much sun can do to the brain? Lol

If Howard walks this summer, then the Lakers are $4 million over the cap. That means that next season, the Lakers would have to go with Nash, Bryant, Gasol and the current group of role players. While I believe that "addition by subtraction" is possible, I don't think that would provide too much faith in the paying fan base. Bryant, especially, wants to compete every year that he has remaining.
