He'll have the support for at least two years. After that, let Mitch handle the rest. I think there's reason to believe that Mitch can build a solid supporting cast around him.

I'm not the biggest fan of cupcake but I'll give him this, he knows how to maximize player's desires that want to play in LA. In then end the money to be made there coupled with the fame then add the potential of being the man on one of the most glamorous teams in the NBA and I would think it would be hard to walk from. Not to mention the potential to win a championship before all that kicks in.

There are few things in life i hate more than the lakers. but its hard to argue that Cupcake (lol i like the name so im gonna steal it for this post) cant do a good job of creating a good supporting cast for Howard when Mr. 81 points and Captain Canada (im still allowed to be a little bitter right?..) retire. I mean who wouldnt want to play along side the best center in the game in Los Angeles for one of the best teams in NBA history? it wont be a hard sell for Mitch Cupcake especially with cap room.

If him not signing with the Lakers has anything to do with him not wanting the pressure of having to measure up to the other great bigs that have worn the hideous combination of purple and gold then he is being a complete bitch and needs to realize that he is a professional athlete and thats what happens and any great player should welcome that and hope to do better even or at least feel confident enough that they can create their own legacy with that team.

All that said i hope he doesnt go to LA. i would love for him to end up somewhere random (not the bobcats tho...only cuz MJ fucked us over from getting a good center and id prefer him on the west) Although him starting the season in Orlando would be hilarious

Update to this rumour - Still Dwight to Lakers (Ugh), but other teams involved.

Quote:
A source close to the situation confirms @wojyahoonba report that Orlando is in talks with Philly, Lakers and Denver. Reported framework of deal that is being discussed but not imminent had Dwight Howard and Al Harrington heading to the Lakers, Andrew Bynum to the Sixers, and Pau Gasol and Arron Afflalo to the Magic along with cap relief (Jason Richardson heading somewhere likely) and draft picks.

Pau Gasol has been both included and excluded as the Lakers, Magic, Sixers and Nuggets discuss trade scenarios centered around Dwight Howard.

The proposals remain fluid even as reports indicate a trade is close.

Gasol would go to the Magic under the currently proposed scenario.

A source close to Gasol told ESPN's Ric Bucher that he would remain with Lakers.

Absolutely. Orlando will end up with probably 3 picks + Afflalo/Gasol?

LOL.... such a joke. Another L.A. robbery to put them back into the mix yet again.

Feel bad for OKC and SAS... They ain't going to the Finals for the next couple of years.

Done deal.

Quote:
A four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers is complete, multiple sources told ESPN on Thursday night.

A source with direct knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com's Marc Stein the Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, and the Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the other three teams.

Don't worry, guys. Stern will nix the trade. Dwight will be in Clipper Blue by the end of the month.

According to my sources Pau Gasol is staying with the Lakers. But the deal is said to be agreed upon in principle and headed for completion
