Seriously, is Dwight turning down...
-Sunny Los Angeles
-and the Lakers organization
...just because the best franchise in basketball didn't figure it out for a year?
I think it's plausible if we get bounced out of the 1st round. But until we actually cross that bridge, I'm not thinking about it. I don't think the Lakers, Mitch or Dwight are thinking about it either.
you guys really overrate that $25mill stuff, its just an extra year he could get here vs. leaving. Doesn't mean its LOST forever, he'll get that year back if he signs with a new team and reups with them eventually.
