Dwight Howard: Beef With Anthony Davis Squashed On The Court 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Oct 23, 2021 1:07 pm

During the Los Angeles Lakers loss to the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, cameras caught Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard getting into an altercation on the sideline. Davis was yelling at Howard as both walked towards the bench, while Howard seemingly ignored him. Davis then approached Howard when he sat down. As the two continued to argue, Howard stood up and pushed Davis away. Teammates and coaches then immediately separated the two players.


Following the game, Howard said, "We squashed that then and there. We just had a disagreement about something on the floor."


Multiple times throughout the loss to the Suns, Lakers players could be seen pointing at each other following defensive breakdowns. As they integrate several new players, Los Angeles' defense has not been up to par through two games.

This team will be a disaster. Waaaaaay too old and the parts do not fit together at all. Pack the Paint and watch them clang jumpers off the rack. Yuk!

Worry not, when that happens, the scapegoat has been labeled already. His name is Russ, just look at Bosh and Love before him. The tragedy of that LeBron 3rd wheel.

Bosh and Love won championships thanks to LeBron. They were going nowhere fast while being the best players on bad teams. I mean Ron Harper was the best player on the Cavs and Clippers early on in his career as well. Cedric Ceballos was the best player on the Lakers for a couple seasons. Kyrie was the best player on the Cavs who couldn't reach the playoffs until LeBron went back. Until you are the guy on a contender, having great stats on a bad team really is worthless, legacy wise anyway.

The Lakers are two games in to the season. I know the Laker and LeBron haters around the world are rejoicing, but it is a long season. The Heat went 9-9 the first 18 games when LBJ got there and all the LeBron haters were loving it. In the end they did just fine. As long as they stay healthy, the Lakers will be just fine as well imo.
