maybe lebron will literally kill dwight

There’s no way Dwight is unsigned without the “sex scandal” right

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 19:38 (three weeks ago) link

Dwight is such an afterthought to me i didnt even know there was a scandal of that nature

dwight howard to the lakers truly the hoop gods are shining upon us today

Like what does this mean exactly

Dwight Howard's deal with the Lakers will be non-guaranteed, league source tells ESPN. Howard had several meetings with Lakers officials, and they'll give him a chance to show he's made changes in how he conducts himself. Lakers players were involved in process.

It means the Laker front office can drop Dwight like a hot potato if they feel like it. And the 'Lakers players' (aka Lebron) view Dwight with deep suspicion.

no farting in the locker room

Javale McGee is on the roster!

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:10 (three weeks ago) link

If you want to join the center rotation with javale McGee you need to conduct yourself with dignity

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:10 (three weeks ago) link

2 This is gonna 2 be fun

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:19 (three weeks ago) link

javale is a good teammate!

big city slam (Spottie), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:19 (three weeks ago) link

They seem like similarly dumb goofballs to me!

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:21 (three weeks ago) link

goofballs for sure. but javale knows what he is and is willing to buy into whatever role they need him to be ... dwight clearly has not (yet).

big city slam (Spottie), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:23 (three weeks ago) link

dwight wld like to be a goofball but like the hawks cheered when he got traded, theres something else going on there

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:25 (three weeks ago) link

What did Dwight do exactly that has given him this rep? I mean this is written like they’re signing JR Rider

Howard came to meet Lakers after dropping 25 pounds; showed his back was healthy. Lakers want him to protect rim/rebound in limited role. There was sense Howard realized he hit "rock bottom" and had been humbled. Still they'll judge him on actions, not words. He's been warned.

It’s just hard for me to believe the sexuality stuff isn’t in play here

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:28 (three weeks ago) link

u mean the rumor that hes bi

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:29 (three weeks ago) link

Yes

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:34 (three weeks ago) link

Dwight is considered bi on twitter which means every player thinks he’s bi

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:34 (three weeks ago) link

tbf twitter is my main source of information too

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:37 (three weeks ago) link

dwight was a target of mockery and abuse well before the sexuality stuff came out

obv it could've intensified it. nba fans are pretty enlightened as far as sports fandoms go, but that's "tallest midget" stuff.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:41 (three weeks ago) link

He missed almost the whole season with a butt injury which added to it

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:41 (three weeks ago) link

...lmao

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:42 (three weeks ago) link

^ touché

A is for (Aimless), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:44 (three weeks ago) link

it's almost impossible to remember a time when Dwight was this purportedly beloved perennial MVP candidate, i can't think of an NBA superstar who fell so far in public perception other than D-Rose and D-Rose had some concrete, legit reasons moreso than Dwight (at least to the public).

omar little, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:46 (three weeks ago) link

dwight did get injured too tho

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:48 (three weeks ago) link

true and it was the butt, *but* Rose had this catastrophic series of injuries and it sometimes feels Howard's decline in terms of being a star was strictly driven by other players and organizations putting out whisper campaigns about dad jokes.

omar little, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:52 (three weeks ago) link

dwight was never the same after back surgery his final season in orlando

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:55 (three weeks ago) link

btw i recall arguing at the time on here that it prob wasnt that big of a deal and jordan was all idk back surgery for an athletic big man doesnt sound good, so props to jordan

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:57 (three weeks ago) link

No one with a microdiscectomy has ever been the same, it’s just a question of how much they lose

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 23:01 (three weeks ago) link

There’s lots of hype in denver about Michael Porter jr And I think he’ll be good but there’s just no way he’ll ever be the same athletically

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 23:02 (three weeks ago) link

its supposed to be minimally invasive!

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 23:07 (three weeks ago) link

i forgot also about Dwight's SVG moment

omar little, Friday, 23 August 2019 23:09 (three weeks ago) link

injuries suck. dwight was pretty fun to watch in orlando i liked those spread the floor around dwight teams.

big city slam (Spottie), Friday, 23 August 2019 23:09 (three weeks ago) link

the SVG moment made it all worth it tho

big city slam (Spottie), Friday, 23 August 2019 23:10 (three weeks ago) link

also... screwing the lakers

"It'll all come together at the right time," Howard said late Wednesday night in the locker room after the Lakers got blown off the court in Portland.

Before that, Howard turned on some pleasant music so he could groove in front of his locker while he got dressed, his teammates all already long gone to the bus. Before that, he asked a Lakers staffer if hitting his free throws meant he could have his Halloween candy. Then he asked again. And again.

Before that, Howard mooned a TV cameraman whom he suspected of having his camera on while Howard had his underwear halfway down. Howard responded by sticking his rear end farther out, saying: "I've got a wide shot for you." And he giggled.

omar little, Friday, 23 August 2019 23:11 (three weeks ago) link

here we have traded u the second best player and are sad haha just kidding he is bad now also he is very annoying

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 that the Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will get Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will get 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.

In addition, the Magic will be getting other pieces, including 76ers No. 1 draft pick Moe Harkless, a source told Stein.

kinda a wild trade tbh

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 23:18 (three weeks ago) link

lag∞n, Saturday, 24 August 2019 01:39 (three weeks ago) link

God I forgot the Sixers gave up Iguodola, Harkless, and a first in that Bynum trade.

Mazzy Tsar (PBKR), Saturday, 24 August 2019 12:05 (three weeks ago) link

No wonder they had to bring in Hinkie.
