I'm absolutely, positively set on not committing to this guy. Trade him or let him walk. I wouldn't even want a heathy Dwight because he's not happy here and he's a cancer, imo. Here's my blame pie of why he's not happy: 60% never wanted to be here in the first place as was widely reported, 20% he's frustrated with his injuries, 10% he doesn't mesh with Kobe's personality and style of play, 10% he doesn't like MDA's system and his role.
I'm so glad to not be alone in wanting Dwight to be shown the door as soon as possible. Some are still defending him, which is fine, but also calling us shortsighted and dumb, which I obviously feel is wrong. I think I am looking out for the franchises' best interest not wanting Dwight to stay.
I'm fine with him staying as long as he's fine with staying.
Who's the next best big man? In fact, who's the next best Center we can get that's somewhere among the top big men? There isn't one. Big men are a premium and you need to keep the guy you get your hands on.
That being said, if he's serious about not wanting to be here. If he's 100% not re-signing I trade him now. I dont' think he's 100% anything and I don't think he walks away from 30 million so he's probably here forever.
In two years when we pair him with another star, all of this stupid drama will go away. Is he a winner? No. but neither was Shaq until he had a young Kobe Bryant and a young Dwayne Wade. Maybe Dwight isn't a winner until we find him his young running man.
