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.
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.
You're talking to a fan of the team that drafted him bro.
Trust me, I know. He will win a title if he is on a team lead by someone else. That is what he is trying to do. He thought Kobe could...nope. He thinks Harden can....nope.

I guess now that I think from a Laker fans perspective, I understand.
Howard was IT in Orlando. He was just another guy for you. Imagine if Kobe left...that is how I took it.
To me, he played hard and through pain here in LA, during a God awful year, and decided to leave in free agency. Can't hate on the dude for that. I thought he jerked Orlando around and I think Magic fans have a right to dislike the guy for it, but he didn't do anything wrong in LA, IMO.
