Dwight to Sacramento for DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, Francisco Garcia.

We get a very good big who could be great and two solid role players. Dwight gets to go some place where winning is a luxury, not an expectation. He can even be the face of a "new franchise" in Seattle.

Then next year we trade Pau's expiring for two-three more pieces. Complete overhaul in one year's time.

We probably win more games this season with DMC & Tyreke. It's likely that Dwight will miss more games as the season goes when his shoulder gets really sore. If Dwight ever returns to even 90% we'd look like fools long term.

Torn Labrum is more than "hurts", but I tend to agree.

But I did read Henry Abott's stupid article. And while he is a dumarse, I will concede that no one has a right to tell someone how to percieve THEIR OWN injury.

With that being said, it is a torn labrum and several players have played through it. This is critical time and I am glad Dwight will play tonight.

Enough of this "I'm doing me" nonsense, this aint And 1 basketball.

He's playing.

If he's fired up or pouty remains to be seen.

I wouldn't call Sacre garbage, in fact I'd much rather see him on the floor if Dwight continues to play this way.

The fans have turned...... :man10:

A Tiger doesn't change his stripes so easily..... Howard's antics in Orlando showed character issues IMHO.... the ones who thought he would change who he is because he's wearing a different jersey are seeing that it was a misplaced hope.....

He's hurt and he's in a new situation. Let's let him get through the season before we start calling for him to leave..... :man10:

As for Bynum coming back..... he wouldn't get near this team IMO. He was gone this year regardless of what we did.

Dwight's play in the 1st half was awful. He doesn't look engaged at all right now.

People here don't want Howard to play hurt...they want him to play hurt AND well....

calm down, he isn't going to play awesome right now. Damned if he does (play) and damn if he doesn't.

i thought Patrick Ewing worked with Dwight on some offensive moves. The guy really has no offensive game.

Yea he does, he takes offense to everything anyone says about him. I'd say he has a great offensive game.

Dwight doesn't appear to care at all out there. Horrible game.

Haha. the guy has no touch around the rim. I actually think he has bad hands, not Kwame Brown bad though. Imagine if Shaq showed him a few things and Dwight actually works on it.

Charlotte's game is the key to save or blame on Dwight...i guess.

I can't believe how unimpressive the guy has been this season. He'd be called a BUST if it weren't for his health issues; still, even factoring that in I don't think anyone can defend his play so far.
Also my dislike for him keeps growing with every interview he does, every desinterested performance he pulls out, and every FT he misses. If we traded him I wouldn't care ONE bit.

I could understand his shoulder preventing him from blocking shots or shooting hooks. It doesn't excuse him for not boxing out his man and not moving his feet on D.

Can someone tell me if their is a REMOTE chance that MDA gets canned? or are the Lakers gonna bring up the Injury excuses and not realize that small ball is killing us because we don't have consistent shooters?
