Cool story bro. Answer the question or GTFO.
I did, with the last 3 words of my reply.

- Lakers are still the lone team that can offer the most money to Dwight thanks to the new CBA.
- As a result, Dwight would need to take a significant pay cut, if I'm not mistaken its about $20 million or more, if he decides to leave after the season. When you look at the teams under the cap in the off-season, there are really only four teams that concern me (even though the concern is very slight): Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and my dark horse, San Antonio. But again, he would need to take a pay cut.
- One thing with Dwight, as much as he says he loves winning, he loves to entertain people even more. Los Angeles is the perfect city for him to be himself and just have fun, and as a result will be a polarizing figure here in LA. Also the endorsements he will receive will bring his value even more, he won't get that anywhere else except for New York or Brooklyn and they are both out of the question.
- My biggest reason for him staying? His back injury. One thing that has happened is that his injury showed him that nothing is given and it was even reported that he was thinking about retiring at one point because of the seriousness of his back injury. The way I look at it, will Dwight want to take a pay cut to go elsewhere or will he cash in what could be his last big contract while also keeping himself financially stable in case of another injury or lingering back problems?

Do you ever add anything of substance? All you do is troll and stalk me and my posts. Don't know why you haven't been banned.

Well personally, I've never been a fan of that term "financially stable" as an athlete because I think if you can't make a living off a few million then you don't deserve to have that money. But when it comes to athletes, they live differently then the normal average joe so that's why I said it.

So then it would be atleast a little above 50-50 for you, of him staying.
I think its a 50 50 it all depends on how the season ends but if i had to put money on it i would say yeah hes staying

I don't think even Dwight knows the answer yet, but after reading the topic, I'm wondering: why would anyone WANT him to leave? He's giving us 17/13 on 58% FG when he's not fully healthy. His career average is 18/13 on 58% FG.
If he's putting up career averages, and he has been the best center in the league for most of his career...what is everyone whining about?
Dwight is not going to average career highs in PPG with Kobe on this team AND Nash with the ball in his hands (choosing to pass to shooters more than Howard). Can Howard average 20-22 a game here? Probably, but to expect him to put up 25/15 every night, healthy or not, on this particular team...you obviously have no idea what we actually traded Bynum for.
Maybe we should just go back to Andrew Bynum next year, and I'll stop creating gameday topics, because we won't have a season to talk about at that point.

He leaves we free up all kinds of money and the official younger lakers will begin
He stays and hopefully he quits being a premadonna and sacks up!
