Of course, I’m talking about this sad, sad website launched by the mayor of Orlando. We all saw how the desperation pitch worked out for Cleavland (how pathetic is that video though, really?) But as you can see, I can all but guarantee that Dwight Howard will be a Laker at some point next season. I know I’ve stated on this blog several times that I believe he’ll eventually be in Boston….but facts are facts. Los Angeles is clearly going to undergo a giant make-over after that embarrassing performance to the Mavericks…and who do you think the first one to go is going to be? Probably the man who plays Dwight’s position and acted like a 13 year old girl while his team was being torn a new asshole.
Don’t expect Orlando GM Otis Smith to allow Dwight to walk for free, just like Shaq. If he knows any better, he’ll be on the phone right now with the Lakers to try to acquire a package of Shannon Brown, Andrew Bynum, and Pau Gasol/Lamar Odom. Also, make the Lakers take on Gilbert Arenas’ expiring contract, considering you have zero confidence in him as you showed in the playoffs. Once Derek Fisher retires, the Lakers starting line-up could potentially be Kobe, Dwight, Gilbert, Pau, and Artest/someone else. Just like that, the Lakers are a dynasty again. God dammit.
