Celtics Morning Joe: Howard Lakers bound?

Posted by shawn cassidy on July 19, 2012 at 8:45 AM




If the Lakers get Howard. They will  win their 17th championship this season. If you don't think Howard is better than Bynum, your mistaken. I have feared this all along. I was thrilled that Howard said he wouldn't want to play in LA, but with trades running dry, he may have to settle on the Lakers.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Sources -- Dwight Howard, if traded, ready to sign Los Angeles Lakers extension - ESPN Los Angeles

Magic center Dwight Howard signaled that if he is traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, he would be prepared to sign a long-term extension after the 2012-13 NBA season, the basketball website RealGM.com reported on Wednesday. Two sources confirmed to ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard that Howard is willing to re-sign long-term with the Lakers if Orlando trades him there. Until recently, Howard had been steadfast in his desire to commit only to the Brooklyn Nets long-term.



 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lakers have the biggest trade chip in Bynum. The one player who could hold this up is Bynum. If he's unwilling to sign an extension elsewhere. The NBA has become a league of brats. Demanding trades, to where they want to go. It's now become a thing to go to LA, and New York. It's always been the Lakers. But now the Clippers have become a star attraction. And now everyone wants to play in New York on the Knicks, and now the Nets after they have left New Jersey.

What's wrong Boston? But anyway, if the Lakers acquire Howard. I think they will win a title this year. And I fear that, and it will keep me up at nights thinking about it.

I think we all knew that this was how it would end up. Howard to the Lakers. The whole thing has been like a scripted courtship. Seriously, doesn't it read like a script. Howard to the Lakers. No, Howard demurs. Howard to Lakers. No, Lakers demur. Heat devastatingly win championship, look set to win next ten championships. HOWARD TO LAKERS! LAKERS LOOK UNBEATABLE!!!

It's all Hollywood, if you ask me.

Exactly Paul, did Stern call Howard,and tell him to go. Howard played off for years, but here we are. And if he doesn't go to LA at this point. I'm shocked. Goodbye title hold, The Lakers will take our record,if they land Howard.

I think we can still beat them, Greg. We have some x factors on our side. But one thing we need to do is stop playing to lose until our backs are against a wall. Next year we need to have that 'killer' mentality. I think Rondo will bring that. We can't constantly play down to teams.

I agree. Or we get to comfortable,and let off the gas. Both ways kill us.

I think that's really got to change. Here again we are talking about intangibles, about the expectations you set up for yourself, in you mind, and in the minds of others, when you consistently accomplish amazing things, as opposed to slacking every chance you get.

Not to dismiss the value of slack!!
