D'Antoni on Howard: "Hes cleared. Hes always been cleared." Said it was always based on how Howard felt physically.

after the time ran out in the game they put the camera on him sitting on the bench and he just pulled his jersey off.

it could be taken out of context but who knows

Well, based on his body language and no contact with Kobe, it's obvious that he doesn't like to play with Kobe, he is not happy about Kobe calling him out for urgency thus forcing him to play this game. This is the main concern to me with Dwight and I think Lakers should entertain a Dwight trade, he doesn't want to play with Kobe anymore.

Love how, D12 never mentions that the doctors, "cleared him to play". Kobe knew it, Nash knew it, that's why they said what they said to the press.

Kobe SHOULD'VE CALLED HIM OUT!!! He's been cleared to play for 3 games now!!! When gasol went down, he should've come to that realization on his own that he was going to play. The situation demanded a little urgency from him.

Bynum took off his jersey repeatedly. It seems too much to read anything interesting from that.

RT @AlexKennedyNBA After hearing Mike D'Antoni say that Dwight Howard chose to sit out even though he had been cleared, Kobe Bryant's comments make more sense.

I'm for moving him. We can do better. We can amnesty Pau, and then let Dwight expire. This would put us under the luxury, right?

RT @AlexKennedyNBA During postgame interview, Mike D'Antoni said Dwight Howard has been cleared to play for awhile, but he chose not to play until tonight.

I think you would have to buy out Kobe or amnesty him before Pau. His salary is bigger than Pau's by a long ways.

And already tired of Dwight's antics. He played with zero effort tonight. He couldn't even set a damn screen for Nash. He's pathetic offensively.

Worst thing, he's was cleared to play yet didn't really want to play until pressure was put on him. Tells you what kind of player he is.

Gotta admit something when you see it with you're own eyes... D12 basically sabotaged the game tonight.... I don't even think LeBron ever sabotaged a game for the Cavs during his time their.

Something is gonna blow up soon and it's not looking good at all.

Maybe your memory is better than mine, it probably is cuz i am an old fart, but I can only recall Bynum doing that instances where he was thrown out of the game.

Second. If you add up what happened in the past month or so:

1. D12 complains about touches. Disappears @TOR and the game after that.
2. D12 expresses "unsure" attitude about MDA.
3. D12 cleared to play for a while, but chose not to play.
4. Kobe and Nash asks D12 to play through pain because we are in urgency mode.
5. D12 expresses "dislike" over the Kobe comments.
6. Then D12 coincidentally choose to play tonight after getting called out.
7. D12's effort tonight can at best be called "half-hearted."
8. When camera comes to D12 on the bench, he takes off his jersey.

I look at all these things, and i can only conclude that D12 pretty much gave the team the middle finger tonight. You force me to play...i'll play but I won't give it my all. That's the vibe i am getting.

His body is failing him and his attitude is showing hes not handling it well at all. Hes pointing fingers everywhere else but himself. Just own up to yourself you know? Its not the struggles and losing thats bothering me but the way he goes about it. Come on show some mettle instead of being fussy and defensive all the time. Im slightly leaning towards trading him if we can find a great deal for him that can net us 2 All stars in return who fit our team (Horford + Smith? Millsapp + Jefferson? Lopez + Humphries + Joe Johnson? ) something along those lines.

Mike Brown wasn't the answer Mike D'Antoni isnt the answer
Bynum wasnt the answer and it looks like Howard isnt the answer


- The injury is clearly limiting him, he was tryin to block shots with his left hand and going cross bodied swipes, picked up 2-3 fouls doing that so I understand hes hurt and its limiting him. Shut him down and give him surgery and re-sign him and restart the season next year

or

- Trade him


I think its pointless for him to continue playing this year. He looks like hes done for this year

Well yeah, Lopez is better, but that's one need, my trade fills 3 needs, C, backup PG, shooter. I did say it was just a dream though. :man5: Oh and hell no to Cousins, I can just see that guy blowing up in a crucial playoff moment if we even got there and screwing everything up for us.

He's hurt and he's playing on a team that is expected to win...... not healthy on a team that celebrates making the playoffs. Big adjustments on both parts.

Humphries and johnson's contracts are WAAAY to much to come to L.A. But lopez, Andray blatche, and marshon brooks is something that may work.
