Regardless if this is true or not, my opinion of Dwight is pretty low.

I would not be heartbroken at all if he left or is traded.

I think the biggest concern of mine and my biggest disappointment as well, is that I really believed that Dwight would use Los Angeles as a new start and forget the past. But from what I have seen, he has yet to grow up, take any responsibility, and is still acting the way he did in Orlando during his last trade debacle.

I do feel bad for the guy cause he's a genuinely happy guy and seems like a good guy in general, but he needs to learn how to grow up. This isn't the regular Dwight Howard from years past, but the question is, with one major back surgery under his belt, will we ever see that Dwight again?

Lots of questions surrounding this. Many say trade him, many say keep him. As of right now, it doesn't look like the Lakers will trade him and I think that's the right decision to show loyalty to him in a very tough season. That will hopefully count for something as we get to the offseason. The Lakers want to show Dwight they are committed to him and thats how it should be right now.

There's no possible deal out there that really gives the Lakers incentive for trading him. The potential financial gain from having Dwight in the P&G really outweighs any potential player we could realistically get.

It's no secret that Dwight Howard still wants to play for the Nets. If the Nets were an option this summer, he'd walk. However, they're not.

I think the report is crap.

If Dwight REALLY wanted to go to Brooklyn, he could. All he has to do is let Mitch know that isn't going to re-sign and that he only would re-sign with the Nets. His image would take a hit, again, but no-one would care once the 2013-14 season kicks off. I know D-Will is telling Brook Lopez that he's safe, but if there is a chance for them to land Dwight, they would jump on it.

I always knew Dwight was soft mentally and thats one of the reasons I was never that excited about getting him but I didnt think he'd play this bad from a mental standpoint.

Its not possible for him to be traded to the Nets unless its done before the trade deadline I just don't see that happening

Very clever cop out way of saying "when Dwight resigns with the Lakers it's not cause he "really wants to" so I won't be wrong."

Wonder who's gonna buy that instead of see it for what it is.

Watch, I can do that.

It's no secret Kyrie Irving wants to win a title, if he was a free agent this summer he'd leave Cleveland but because no teams with cap space have a shot to win a title he'll likely stay.

That's fun!

The fact that SAS is saying this makes it a joke by default.
