If Kobe wants one more ring, he will have to go to Durant's team and help them beat the Meat, otherwise Kobe will be out soon and Durant will have to wait for Wade to retire.Will Dwight come back?
Will Kobe be Healthy?
Will D'Antoni be back?
Whatever, Dwight is garbage. He's a petulant child and fumbles the ball away more than Kwame Brown.
Dwight doesn't have experience playing THROUGH injuries. He's playing WITH injuries and that's a very different thing.
And Dwight never has had anyone pushing him, period. He hardly pushes himself.
If the Lakers don't trade him, they are making a mistake. You can't build around that guy. He is a finger pointer and lacks drive. And I really wanted him here, having coveted him since before he was drafted, but he's absolutely changed every concept I ever had about him.
Kobe will be gone in a couple of years, and Dwight is not the centerpiece of a team. Especially if he never recovers from the back injury.
Kobe out of the picture, cheese. I don't want to build a team around Dwight. He's been flat out awful. And on top of it, he's been whiny. All while getting stripped over and over, bricking free throws and blowing layups.
Has nothing to do with Kobe. Has to do with the fact that Emperor D12 has no effing clothes, and I'm shocked to see it.
Whatever, there is nothing wrong in there. Dwight doesn't get it yet. LA didn't get him to smile and talk about how this is bananas, and doesn't even feel like real life. They brought him in to dominate. He has failed thus far. Kobe is pushing him, sure, but the LAKERS expectation is the huge push.
Try again, haters. While you are at it, light a fire under Dwight's ass, please, or he's going to be bounced.
I don't care what anyone says, Dwight sucks and is a huge ***.
Dwight still being a whiny bitch. Argues with Nash on the floor because he wanted a lob and not the bounce pass, when he should have moved his ass to help Nash out when he was trapped on the play. SMH.
If it wasn't for defense, Dwight would be absolutely useless out there. Another pansy ass weak layup in the first Q had me rolling my eyes.
I don't really CARE what Howard is going through physically. I do know that he has chemistry problems with everyone on the team, gets stripped too often, tries layups instead of dunks, and gets outrebounded like crazy. I do know that he can't post up down low, and when he does get position, he has no post moves at all. And when he does get close to the rim, a quick foul on him is as good as a turnover since he's bricking his free throws. That's what I CARE about. Not his pain tolerance.
This is the guy that we are supposed to be looking at as the future leader of the team, that will be the centerpiece when Kobe is done, that will be the guy the team is built around. His audition is failing. When he's talking about three years and Kobe and Nash are looking at the retirement horizon, he simply isn't there mentally. I have no trust in him as a leader, and that has NOTHING to do with his physical pain.
Tim Duncan must lack it, because sitting out when cleared to play, in the PLAYOFFS, definitely shows a lack of desire to win. But at least Duncan had proven his value to his team and they all knew that when he was on the floor, he gave it all. Dwight hasn't done that and has chemistry issues with the group, so sitting out is even worse.
Dwight flat out sucks this year. He gets stripped constantly, all game long. He makes Kwame Brown's hands look gooood.
Pau and Howard can't be on the court at the same time, it is known.
And honestly, I don't even care if he leaves. Holy crap has he been terrible. He's weak and useless.
we both know that... but he doesn't and that's all that matters to a guy as stupid as Dwight. if y'all don't win a chip in the next two years with Kobe (which I do think is still very possible that you do), then Dwight (assuming he stays) will eventually become the the biggest Laker bust of all time, IMO. He will never be an Alpha Dog superstar champion IMO because he doesn't work on his game. For him to still be so limited offensively makes zero sense and he ain't a guy who can take you to a title. he's a perfect number 2 banana who thinks he's top dog.
What I'm going to enjoy the most this year...
Gee! freaking out and cheering for Lakers wins as they spiral deeper and deeper into the lottery for Wiggins et al.
You think the Lakers are gonna be worse than the Suns? Haha.. Ok.. I will be laughing as Kobe gets pissed off at all their losing though.. Wont be more than the Suns though..
Just you wait, Gee. Just you wait. You'll be a bandwagon Lakers fan and I will save every pleading "just win Lakers" post from you for posterity.
yeah, they gonna suuuuuuck.
meeks/kobe (most of the season)

the end. 30 wins is the ceiling. Bledsoe alone gives you SOOO much more firepower. Bledsoe puts that ratass group above in the playoffs.
