Rudolph just came on 710 and heavily hinted that if D'Antoni is the coach after this summer that Dwight will leave.


When somebody finds a link to that radio conversation, can you please post it so we can confirm this post?

Thank you

I've been listening and heard Rudolph's interview. He said if D'Antoni is the coach, he thinks Dwight will be heavily advised to look elsewhere because Dwight and this system doesn't work.

They're still on air and you can rewind back to around 2:35pm (Rudolph comes on around 2:40pm).

lol, they're going crazy in LA. Thinking about having to choose between Dwight and D'Antoni and looking to trade Dwight before the deadline. pure enjoyment on my ears for the last hour.


Thanks for this. Rudolph starts talking around 239-240 pm.

The rumor isn't that Rudolph is his cousin. The rumor is Rudolph is close to Dwight's cousin; which is how he got in the door with Dwight.

No problem. After I made my post, I went ahead and tried to find it and noted the correct time Rudolph comes on air.

I love how Dwight just keeps on killing his credibility with each passing day.

Now the Magic won't catch as much flack for his wanting out. Magic have made out the best so far in that trade.

So he wanted to leave Orlando so he could be part of a winning culture...look where that has gotten him..he has taken a winning culture and completely trashed it. Buhahahaha.

So basically, Rudolph jumped on the Dwight money train to be his personal media lackey basically ruining any chance he could ever be considered a legit reporter by posting biased and/or force fed information.

The never ending cycle of Rudolph.

"Breaks" story.

Another outlet shuts him down.

He bashes the credibility of that outlet.

People start bashing him.

He subtlety threatens the bashers with violence. (I'd love to see you say that to my face. Maybe one day we'll meet face to face and we'll see what happens)

He continues to whine about the outlet that shut his story down, while mixing in phrases lke "I could care less about what they say, or He doesn't move my needle"..... He cares so little about this media outlet, that he continues to whine about them nonstop for the next 24-48 hours.

He takes a break to shop at edhardy.com

He goes through his timeline blocking everyone who disagrees with him, regardless of how civil they are.

He refuses to admit that his ONLY sources are Dwight Howard and Dan Fegan.

Rinse. Repeat.

Can't deny it... I am enjoying watching dwightmare 2.0.

Oddly enough, if they want a coach that can make this work they should have called Stan after they were turned down by Phil Jackson.

Kobe's latest response:
"I've constantly tried to help him out, tried to talk to him," Bryant said of Howard. "Two o'clock in the morning, three o'clock in the morning. Texting him. Sharing reading materials. Anything to try and help him."

Dayum,Kobe is even trying the whole "Dwight,I'll be your friend off the court"that he so desperately needs and its still not working.Karma is real yall.............

You don't have to be a genius to beat Dwight Howard in PR. Kobe just covering his rear and making Dwight look even worse cause he knows he's gone.

I believe Rudolph in this sense. Rudolph seemed to get his info from either D12 himself or his agent. His loved to just toss out false rumors to guys like Rudolph to get things moving or gain leverage. I think this is Dwight plotting his departure from LA.

I have to admit that I am enjoying watching the Howard/LA marriage appear to be falling apart.

LA must be feeling that Howard is thinking about playing elsewhere next year....and if LA does decide that Howard is going to bolt after the season, please just don't trade him to Brooklyn.......

Bad part about all of this is that Dwight may end up in the eastern conference, again, for the next 10 yrs. We'll have to see him 3-4 times a year vs only twice. Hope they send him to Houston or he walks to Dallas.

at this point, Lopez is playing well enough that getting him would be better than losing Dwight for nothing.

I put together this little deal, which I think makes all parties happy.

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=b5ne29b

Lakers get Lopez as their big man offensive focal point, and they get Gay to groom behind Kobe.

Nets get their man.

Memphis gets to unite the Gasol bros', whilst clearing an immediate $6M off the books, as well as shedding a boatload of long term expense. Meanwhile, they get quality youth pieces in Patterson, Teletovic and Brooks, all of whom have good upside, and can perform well now.

Houston gets a dominant big to partner with Harden/Parsons/Lin. a ZBo/Harden tandem could roll deep into the playoffs.

Dwight's not gonna be a Laker much longer. I still think he ends up in Brooklyn eventually. You can tell he doesn't care about the Lakers. He's not really trying. I think he will play better with Brooklyn he's just not happy in LA. I hope he ends up in Dallas though somehow cause it would suck to have to play him 4 times a year.

I find joy in Dwight failing, but I will be pissed if he ultimately ends up in Brooklyn. Not only would he be getting his original wish, but we'll have to see his ugly mug more often and for years. When we finally get back in the playoffs, we would have a much bigger chance of having to face him, too. Would not be cool. The biggest reason I didn't want Lopez is because his acquisition would have been negated by Dwight's presence in the same conference. The best case scenario is he gets shipped to the Dallas, where he likely won't win anything and will stay the hell away from us.
