What is this Phil coming back talk? Haven't heard anything about that.

You haven't heard because you aren't listening.

I don't think he's coming back, but you don't think he woulda taken the job if they offered it to him last season?

What about Durant? Any chance when he becomes a FreeAgent?

2016. I think we have a shot at him, but that's a long way away and dependent on several things. Westbrook's a FA in '17 too, and he's an LA kid. He tried to get to the Lakers before signing his extension, but there was no real way of doing so.

not a chance in hell Durant leaves OKC

Lol. U mad.

I'm still annoyed by the 2009 Finals, but as a Magic fan I think all of us can say f**k OFF to Dwight Howard

Not to mention the fact that he only goes somewhere where he can win with superstars. He isnt going to go to a team that could be a bottom 5 team in the league

I'm definitely not annoyed by the 2009 Finals, and I don't say f**k off to Dwight. He clearly isn't the superstar he's labeled to be. That doesn't mean he isn't the best overall Center in the game, but his game has obvious holes, as does his character. I wanted him back simply as an asset, but if he chooses to leave, then so be it. I'm not upset over losing him.

I think Howard CAN be the superstar we all think he can be, but its clear he HAS to be "the man" in my opinion. He was THE MAN in Orlando. In Los Angeles, he was "the other guy" to Kobe Bryant. I think he will be the same in Houston to James Harden.

I dont know what this f**kers motivation is. Clearly the Warriors would have been his best chance for a title with Curry, Klay, Iggy and Lee ( assuming they traded Barnes). However, he wouldnt have been THE MAN with the Dubs. It is Currys team and always will be.

He didn't really have an option like that. LA/HOU/GSW..maybe I'm biased, but I still think his best chance was to be that guy with ORL. The Magic had some pretty good players, but no "superstar" kind of players. He brought that team to the NBA Finals and Orlando adored him. He wants to be THE MAN, but doesn't want to perform like one. He is willing to join up w/ already well built teams to go along for the ride instead of lead it. Pretty sad.

Bottom 5 team with Kobe, Nash and Gasol? Right.

Howard will never win a championship. Mark my words. His game is too underdeveloped for this stage in his career. His post moves are like watching a car accident. He cannot hit a clutch (or any for that matter) free throw to save his life. He's too playful and doesn't do enough to work on his game and improve. I agree with 949er when he said that I only wanted him back as an asset. He's not a superstar and never will be.

If they think that Josh Smith and James Harden are going to be his savors he is very delusional.
