Having said all that I'm bummed he chose Houston, but I'm already over it. I couldn't stand the guy. He's a mental midget and an offensive liability IMO. If it wasn't a layup, or an alley-oop, his post moves were a rich man's Kwame Brown. We're gonna have the same if not better record next year without him, and a ton of more money.......So what does it really matter? We just got swept as an 8 seed, really what are we missing? Better to clean up, move on from that d-bag.
I stand by what I think, that Howard had not fully recovered from his back surgery. Coming from someone who has had two, some people never get back to 100%.
No one liked Howard? All the Laker fan's I know were thinking championship, I know a guy who plunked down $1,000 that he didn't have on the Lakers winning it all the second that Dwight signed. He is just a scape goat for an aged team that had a lot of injuries.
