It's from NY, so consider the source. But I secretly want this to happen. Why? Because I imagine it'd be funny.

Going from the dysfunctional Lakers to the equally dysfunctional Nets may actually be worse. Deron validated his reputation as a coach killer. And paired with Dwight, I could only imagine how the two would fare with Latrell Sprewell's favorite coach.

Plus, Dan Fegan is no longer with Lagardere. He probably wouldn't even care to move Dwight to Brooklyn if he won't receive kickbacks out of the Lagardere Unlimited-Barclays Center partership. Although in a beautiful and hilarious world, it'd be even better if Dwight fired Fegan before signing his next contract.

With what money would we sign him?


Hennigan could use that large $17+ TPE to acquire Howard in a sign and trade...Just like the Lakers did when they went after Steve Nash, when they were already over the salary cap!

But I would imagine we either slash some payroll by trade by the dealine (BBD,Affalo,Nelson) and sign another FA by the free agency like Ellis before we acquire Howard. Not to mention our potential high draft pick this summer *coughs* (Marcus Smart). I probably think our GM has this planned out already :D

C-Howard*
PF-Vucevic
SF-D.Jones
SG-Ellis*
PG-Smart

Not to mention Hennigan might pursue Turk to opt out of his final year contract (more cap room) and resign him for cheap to have a spot on this roster next year on a potential championship team or be waive with his partial guaranteed $6m/left out of a chance to win a title with the Magic :wink:

Dwights lackey is shooting down the reported rumor between Dwight and Kobe.

Jarrod Rudolph of RealGM.com:

For those wondering, I was told on Thursday that the rumor of a Dwight-Kobe altercation was nothing more than talk.

I also know of two other reporters that were made aware of the rumor last week and also told the story wasn't true when they looked into it.



On the occasion of his preseason Lakers debut, perhaps his truest and most important introduction to this most scrutinized job in sports – center for the Los Angeles Lakers – had come after the tears and ovation and his teammates pranking him by pushing Howard to lead them out of the tunnel – only to stop and let him run out there alone. For one, Kobe Bryant doesn't do basketball laugh tracks, nor condone them.

"I don't play those games," he grumbled later.

Bryant isn't a fan of the jokes, nor he is an agent of humor like Howard. So yeah, the potential for them to clash beyond reason is there.


Dwight regarding Clips and Lakers: Look at the difference between our team and theirs. They just play together. They share the ball. Everybody's excited when something happens. We have to be like that to be a great team.

Maybe Kobe digging in to pin-cushion soft Dwight is exactly what he needs. Dwight should stop trying to be so damn likable all of the time and be himself for once, cause I'm not sure we've ever seen it.

We all saw this coming a long time ago. Kobe is douche, Dwight is douche, and they hate each other. The mansopera continues...

When Rudolph is called upon for damage control, you know the rumor is true.

"Aaron Gordon will cost Henny's job by Dec 2016." Predicted Dec 2014.

"O'Quinn will have a longer and more successful NBA career than Nicholson." Predicted Jun 2012. Verified on Dec 2014.

Since JR is saying it's false, I believe it actually happened.

Didnt Dwight and his people deny the altercation between him and Jameer? And he denied wanting Stan gone? And he denied meeting with Brooklyn before being allowed?

an awful lot of denials that were true.

Anyone who can get into a fight with Jameer cannot avoid fighting with Kobe, LOL.

I had a feeling Dwight would be a serious injury, but I thought it would be his back again not a labia.

Wow looks like the more the season goes on the more we got the better end of the trade.

I hope Dwight gets healthy and gets the Lakers to the playoffs. Last thing I want is for him to be out for awhile, Lakers miss the playoffs and then get lucky in the lottery.
