I sure hope the Lakers go on a little winning streak just to start losing again when Howard returns. That would be the ultimate payback for his bad karma.
Funny, Dwight has always gotten what he wants then it fails. He got Shard, Hedo, Arenas, Vince and BBD as the players he wanted. He tried to force Stan, a top 5 coach, into hard situations. He then wanted LA which hasn't treated him like he wanted. I am positive that Brooklyn would not have been any better. Dude deserves bad Karma playing GM with the league.
Dwight played GM because our management let him. He's a mentally weak hypocrite, it's true, but those questionable roster moves are 100% on our team's management (or lack thereof). Few other teams would ever cave into the demands of a single player the way this team did, let alone over and over again
I don't think that's true at all, actually. This is life in the NBA, a league built on its superstars. When they speak, GMs and Owners generally have to listen.
It sucks but that's how it works.
My personal opinion is that Dwight would be happier in Brooklyn because he'd have another owner who would cater to his desires. He doesn't have that in LA, where Kobe is top dog and has ownerships ear. In Brooklyn, DWill has that by default, but if Dwight went there (or had gone there, who knows now) he'd have been on top from the start.
