Jason Terry to Celtics

Suddenly I no longer hate the Mavs.
Danny Ainge b******ttin', should bring back Iverson if you want a scoring guard off the bench. He'd be a perfect fit for that team.

We're not trading Bynum AND Pau for Howard, lol.

Someone needs to tell Chris Broussard that Dwight is not a two syllable word.

Barkley and a couple of the other players around the league call him Duh-Wight as well...I think the proper pronunciation might actually be Duh-Wight...

Speaking of which, have you seen Dwight?

While the Lakers do appear to be in play for Dwight Howard, they also have a 'growing list of concerns' on actually acquiring him, according to a source.

Howard underwent season-ending back surgery on a bulging disk and it is unclear if he would actually sign a contract extension after privately saying he didn't want to play for the Lakers.

The Lakers also are uninterested in taking back additional salary in a trade for Howard.

If we're giving up MWP, not resigning Barnes...who the hell is going to be our defensive presence on the perimeter to cover the Durant and BronBrons of the world? Devin Ebanks? Keep MWP, take J-Rich's contract (he'd be a back up 2-guard that we so desperately need behind Kobe) if you absolutely must...

God damnit, I just don't like this Dwight Howard stuff...at all...

So you're saying the NBA is loaded with incompetent fools who can't read good... Derek Zoolander to the rescue!

I think they've given up...this is a telling sign that it really does appear Dwight is in LA or bust mode...

I don't care much for Dwight Howard...but you guys are being way too harsh. The dude is in mid-20s, got drafted right out of high-school...to a team he didn't pick to go to - and it's really not that big of a deal if he can't make up his mind about what he really wants to do. It's his first big decision. People are getting way too sensitive to this kind of stuff. It's his life, and there is nothing too wrong with what he is doing. Ideally, you'd like him to decide and not waffle, but it's a big decision - and sometimes you can't decide what is best for you and there is nothing wrong with changing your mind and taking more time.

He is doing what is best for him, and Orlando should do what is best for them.

Sources: The Nets & Magic are discussing a trade that would send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn for Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks… and the Nets' first-round picks in 2013, 2015 and 2017….move would give Nets Big 3 of D-Will, Dwight & Joe Johnson


I guess they really want just 6 guys on their roster
Lol the nets roll out starting only 4 players

He's a FA now. Would they be able to afford him if they for Dwight though?

I heard they resigned him already for a $10M a year deal...
