Recent reports have stated that one of the reasons that Dwight didn’t stay put in LA is that he want the Lakers to 86 Kobe and make Howard the main event. Unfortunately for him the Lakers’ brass (and most of the world) disagreed. Kobe, aging and now with a bum leg (torn Achilles tendon), is still likely to be more productive that a soft Howard. It’s safe to say that Howard, hampered by a bad shoulder last season, is the league’s premium big man but is still underachieving despite his solid numbers. Most Lakers’ fans will agree that Howard couldn’t had LA’s lime light and were happy to see him go.
Also in other news the Lakers’ have decided to exercise their amnesty clause on Metta World Peace (PKA Ron Artest AKA “I fight fans”). The Lake-show has also added Nick Young and a few other pieces to start what rebuilding process.
