I find it funny that dwight really thinks hes gonna pull a lebron. i mean in no way is the current rockets team better than the heat, Warriors(now with iggy), Thunder, nets, Bull(if rose comes back to normal). I see them being like Memphis  A decent team that will never go past the conference championship. 

 

Welcome to Orlando Houston

No one's mentioned this, but OKC is to blame for this as well for trading Harden to the Rockets last offseason. Dwight would have NEVER considered the Rockets otherwise.

^Again, that's the only excuse Dwight has. Nothing else. Everything else is on him. If he can't welcome the challenge of playing in Los Angeles, with the Lakers, and arguably the GOAT in Kobe then bye bye. 

 

I agree. Not everything is a hand out. You don't get to become a Laker and things magically fall in place to your likings and you win a championship. If you become a Laker, you better work your ass off no matter what obstacle is in the way.

 

I wish Dwight the best of luck in HOU... he is going to need it.

In other words, he would have been happy to be a Laker right off of our 2010 championship, or in a few years once we are back in contention.


I guess we know what's gonna happen in his NEXT free agency period then especially if he doesn't win a ring in the next 4 years.

I don't hate him but it's kind of hard to wish him luck

He'll never say that the pitch was wrong...only that Dwight couldn't handle it.

People with extreme narcissistic personalities have an inability to admit fault.


Omg stfu about Kobe already. You're entirely wrong. Dwight himself said it had nothing to do with Kobe. Which should be obvious by now. We do not know what was said or how it was said

Charles Barkley blasts Dwight Howard with some real zingers on NBA TV. Doubts mental toughness, reputation, more:

Some quotes from Charles Barkley on NBA TV about Dwight Howard:

--"To get his reputation back, he has to win a championship.''

--"I was very disappointed with his mental makeup watching it from a distance this season.''

--"I didn't think he was going to stay in L.A.''

--"From a psychological standpoint, I'm not sure he has the mental toughness to be a franchise player.''

--"I don't think from a mental toughness makeup Dwight could have handled being the man in L.A.''

Well, Dwight's quotes were consistent with what I think the Lakers' major issues were to retaining him: MDA and roster.

 

I think it was the Lakers' decision ultimately that they weren't going to try to appease him. They wanted him back, but only on their kind of team. I hope it was because they didn't believe he was worth building everything around, and not that their so locked into MDA and that brand of basketball. I disagree with the call even if it were the former, but at least they wouldn't be locked into a losing system.

He also said Kobe never said "teach you how to be a winner"

DH: “He didn’t say anything of that sort. People twisted a lot of stuff that he said. But in my personal opinion, I’m a winner. I’m a winner because I’ve been playing for nine years when the average career for an NBA player is three years. I’m a winner because I made it to the NBA from a small school in Atlanta, GA, with 16 people in a class. I’m a winner because I’m succeeding in life. I’ve had problems and I’m not better than the next man, but I’m going to push myself to be a winner when it comes to winning a championship. But he didn’t say anything like that and a lot of people twisted what he did say.”

And says that leaving LA proves he wants to win

DH: “Very tough. Very, very, very tough. Very, very tough. People wouldn’t understand. Walking away from them and walking away from $30 million. That shows you right there that I want to win. I want to win. Nothing else matters other than winning. I don’t think anybody would’ve ever walked away from $30 million, but I want to win. But yeah, just walking away was tough. I was walking away from six million fans. I was walking away from a storied franchise. All of that makes it tough and it makes it a really, really big risk. I learned a lot from the situation in Orlando though, when I was afraid to walk away because I didn’t want to hurt people. I was afraid to leave because everything seemed like it was great. But now, I’m doing what’s best for Dwight. People are going to be mad and upset either way, so I’d rather be happy. I want to be happy playing basketball rather than upset doing what everyone wants me to do.”

1. Whoop de doo, congratulations Dwight. He sounds like that kid who insists it's never his fault when he gets in trouble. So by his definition, anybody that stays in the league longer than three years is a winner? 

2. No, you made it into the NBA because you were gifted with incredible physical ability, not because you overcame the adversity of a small school. God forbid, the people who actually came from bad situations (Luol Deng) must have had it easy.

When he says stuff like that it makes me feel like it doesn't even matter if we'd gotten Phil or not in terms of his decision.

When he says stuff like (2-3 years from now would be the perfect time(to be a Laker)) it makes me feel like, all that other stuff wouldn't have mattered unless we'd won a championship this year.

Maybe the Lakers knew it too.
