The Los Angeles Lakers were eliminated from the 2013 NBA Playoffs in four games by the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, finishing a season in which beloved owner Jerry Buss passed away, Mike Brown was fired and controversially replaced by Mike D'Antoni, Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles tendon amid countless other injuries and the team was unable to fully incorporate Dwight Howard.

“Like a nightmare," said Howard on his first season with the Lakers. "It’s like a bad dream and we just couldn’t wake up from it. That’s what it felt like.”

Howard underwent back surgery last spring and came back earlier than expected, but was far from his dominant former self.

Howard will be a free agent in the offseason.

"Going to step away from everything for a couple weeks and clear my head before I do or talk about anything as far as next season."

NBA did the Spurs a favor by helping the Lakers make the playoffs.

If Howard's smart he'll bolt L.A. and sign with HOU.

Great young team with a superstar SG and a host of good shooters... plus a HUGE global market with the China following... and the chance to be a featured attraction again without the circus of L.A.... sounds tailor-made for him.

Howard is not a smart guy though

most of the Lakers problems this year were cause by Howard. if he's going to another team he better man up and stop acting like a child.

I believe the only way he'll want to stay is if Kobe is amnestied. Don't have a clue where he'll end up besides,BK or ATL

I'd amnesty Kobe. It takes a year to recover from a blown achilles. He'd have to miss 2 years with LA. Maybe the Bobcats can rent him for a season?
