Listen, I won't cry over Dwight, but why wouldn't I want Howard on the Celtics? Rondo will lead him to greatness I can tell you that much. I think Rondo will lead him to an MVP, and to an NBA championship. Why the Nets? Because their in New York now? Why not the Celtics? With Rondo, and the cap space,and with KG helping Howard on defense. That pairing could be one of the best of all-time defensively.
I say why not Dwight. Why not Boston. The best franchise, and a franchise about team. You don't have to live up to anyone. You just need to add a few banners. In LA Dwight would have to live up to Shaq. So Dwight already said no to any move to LA.
The Celtics are also a playoff team, and will be next season. Will the Celtics be title contenders? Not sure, but if Howard joined the Celtics. The Celtics would be right there with the Heat. So why can't Howard see that the Celtics would be his best option? Boston is a great market, and lets be real. The Celtics run their franchise better than the Nets, and better than most.
Dwight Howard has told new Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan that he wants to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets, ESPN reported late Saturday night.Magic spokesman Joel Glass confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel that a meeting between Howard and Hennigan took place Friday in Southern California, but Glass would not disclose what was said at that meeting.
Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan, and Howard’s manager, Kevin Samples, did not immediately return messages from the Sentinel for comment. Neither did Hennigan.
The Nets seem to be in the works on a possible Joe Johnson deal. Are they working on a new Big three? Deron Williams, and Johnson with Howard? The Nets may be looking at Joe Johnson because Deron Williams may leave for Dallas.
Sources confirmed to The Post Saturday night that, with the start of NBA free agency just hours away, the Nets and Hawks have had talks about a possible trade for All-Star swingman Joe Johnson. The trade would likely only be made with the blessing of superstar point guard Deron Williams, who becomes a free agent at 12:01 a.m. Sunday and who the Nets have done all they possible could to convince him to be the face of the franchise as it moves to Brooklyn and its new arena, Barclays Center, this fall.

Howard won't be on the Magic this coming season, but will the Magic listen to Howard's demands? The Celtics have some sign and trade options. I don't think Orlando will be taking Bass back, but Green is a possible player that the Celtics can use in a possible Howard deal. At the end of the day. I want players who want to play in Boston. If Howard doesn't want to, than he's an enemy.
