West Coast: He can still make more money and for a longer term in L.A., than anywhere else. not to mention the off-court marketing and promo opportunities that come from being the #2 market in the world.
Oh I know, I was simply responding to the post that said he CAN'T go anywhere else as if he has no options. He does have options and teams will be after him, but I don't believe those options are better than LA.
I've said since Dwight arrived that he'll re-sign because of the extra year and extra money, plus the opportunities he'll have here in Los Angeles. For a guy with his personality, I think being Mr. Los Angeles really appeals to him. He loves to have fun and nothing says fun like Southern California.
If he leaves, I think it's because Dwight doesn't like the pressure of being a Laker. Some guys are made for it, some guys are not. I hope Dwight is made for it. I hope the motivation of being swept in the first round and wanting to prove doubters wrong is burning within him right now.
