In Case You Missed It: the Knicks-Nets promo featuring Spike Lee
Man this news is just coming out of left field. Dwight Howard wants to be traded? Seriously? Because these past 18 months have just been nothing but pure bliss for the Orlando Magic and Dwight. Where did this all of this trade talk come from?
Oh give me a break. Come on Rob Hennigan just pull the trigger already. You’re not going to get anything better than what you have been offered by the Rockets or Lakers. Unless you want to wait until Brook Lopez is eligible for trade but for the sake of your fans in Orlando just come out and say how you are going to deal with it because you’re not winning anyone over in the Magic Kingdom
Bad idea. Why would you want a guy that clearly does not want to be in Orlando attending practices and playing in games where the fans will just boo him unmercifully. Dwight Howard, you’re distracting the coach from developing the players on the team that actually give a damn about playing.
If I were Rob Hennigan I would just think long and hard about the best trades that the Los Angeles and Houston Rockets have given and just get Dwight Howard out of Orlando. The longer you wait, the longer a distraction it will be for the team. I wouldn’t be surprised if management panics at the trade deadline and takes a deal that isn’t as sweet as the ones he was offered in these past couple of weeks.
I think I should try to find a way to be Dwight Howard’s agent. I think that Dan Gegan of LaGardere Unlimited just spins a wheel that has these options listed:
-Say Dwight wants to go to L.A. and sign an extension
-Say Dwight wants to go to L.A. and NOT sign an extension
-Say Dwight wants to only play for the Brooklyn NETS
-Say Dwight is open to playing for teams other than the Brooklyn NETS
-Tell Dwight he is doing the right thing
I think the NBA just needs to step in and exile Dwight Howard from the league for five years. That’ll teach him.
Good pick up by the Los Angeles Lakers.
However I find it funny how a couple of years back, people were making fun of the Celtics for signing players like Jermaine O’neal, Shaq and a few others and declared the Celtics “Too Old” to complete. Fast forward to today and it looks like the shoe is on the other foot for the Lakers with them getting Nash (39) and Jamison (36). Let’s see how many other senior citizens they can pick up before the start of the season.
With the Dwight Howard trade talks settling down in Brooklyn (and heating up again in Los Angeles), the Nets have come to an agreement with Kris Humphries on a two-year deal as reported by Yahoo! This move looks for fortify the frontcourt with Lopez and maintain the youth movement.
No matter how much I want this whole Dwightmare to be over I keep posting stuff about it because it keeps getting more and more funny.
After the last couple of weeks of intense trade talks that Magic GM Rob Hennigan has made with the Brooklyn Nets, Lakers and any other team that wants this 7-foot big kid, he has the balls to call up Dwight Howard and make a pitch to get him to stay. Really? It’s like telling your girlfriend, “Yeah I want to see other people and I’m doing it right now” only to turn around after getting shot down by every girl and calling her saying “Yeah I know what I said before but I still want us to give it a chance”. I say that Hennigan should’ve been talking to him about staying even before he thought about trying to deal him.
Prepare to lose Dwight for nothing Orlando. You had good offers on the table but just couldn’t bend on any concessions.
Just when you think it’s close to being over THE TRADE TALKS STOP! WHY?! Can someone please trade for him?! I just want this to end.
Can someone just please help get this trade completed so that basketball fans can get on with their lives?
