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.

You are correct. But, I have a feeling that Otis Smith listened a bit too much to Dwights wish list or words about who he likes. It was probably Otis's relationship with Dwight or Dwights preference to a butt kissing GM like Otis that promoted many of those trades and acquisitions. But, I see similar situations happen throughout professional sports to appease the best and most marketable players.

Otis had bosses, and I think he had orders from ownership to get Dwight what he wanted. After all, he had no interest in VC when he was still good and begging to come here. Then he brings him in a few years later when he's in decline, saying he was now the "right guy." Dwight crows with delight.

I expect Dwight to be on a different team next season. Maybe Brooklyn. I don't think he is trying in LA.

It's never good when someone gets injured but no one has any sympathy for the bad season Dwight's new team is having.

If they miss the playoffs, it will be one of the biggest jokes in NBA history and Phoenix will get a good draft pick.

Where is Dwight rehabbing his shoulder? Whatever city he's in, that's where he'll sign, that's what happened last year... :lol:

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.

Well, he sure:
a) loves media attention
b) can't keep his mouth shut
c) can't stop complaining and blaming everything and everybody but himself.

Dwight Howard was irritated and it had nothing to do with a basketball game.

He didn't like how the Lakers described his shoulder injury.

"I don't know what story came out and said I tore my labrum," he said Tuesday, insisting the labrum instead "separated from the bone" in his right shoulder.

We're not contender anymore, but I'm at peace with the trade and so far I like the results. The more I think about it, more I realize that building around Dwight can't result in championship. Maybe if he matures and changes his attitude, possibility would be there.

LOL at Dwight. "Seperated from the bone" sound like a tear to me. Dwight sounds incredibly insecure, it goes with his childlike wonder.

The headline should read: "I don't know what story came out and said I tore my labia," he said Tuesday, insisting the labia instead "separated from the vijay" in his lower pelvis"

That's classic. Just frigging classic. That's it, game over, you just won the Internet.

I'm liking the way things have played out thus far. We're losing, but I expected that already. A lot of these games have been exciting at least.

But to see Dwight Howard fall flat on his face and struggle with the almighty Lakers (and not to mention, lose to his former team) is just priceless

Dwight unhappy about 5 field-goal attempts tonight: "Look at the stat sheet."

I asked Dwight how he can get more shots. He said: "It's simple. Play inside-out."

I predict his next quote is either about signing somewhere he will be "used correctly," or about a trade to Brooklyn. He can't stay quiet much longer, can he?

I asked Dwight if he can do anything about it or if shot total is out of his power. He said quietly: “Just ...

continue to play. Not get frustrated. As hard as it is, can’t get frustrated.”

I asked Dwight if the inside-out offense could be a start to turning their record around. He paused and then said: “We’ve just got to play the right way. All I can tell you guys is we’ve got to keep believing. We can’t lose faith in each other. It’s tough. The team we are, we’re not built to lose like this.

"It's frustrating, but we've just got to find a way to stick together. Like I said earlier, everything happens for a reason, and there's a reason why we're going through all this failure right now. It seems the harder we try, the faster we fall. We've just got to figure out a way to stay strong through all the crap that's keeping us down.


Dwight is full of cliches. He was saying the same crap last year when we were struggling.

okay, but what do you want or what should he say?

"ya we suck, Nash is old, Kobe is a ball hog, Gasol needs pants, D'antoni is nuts"

That team is just a huge square peg into a round hole.

I just thought of something....

What if LA Trades Dwight.....before March 12th?

Then we may be robbed of our opportunity.

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.
