I say this as a diehard, lifelong Cavaliers fan: this is worse than the LeBron "Decision". LeBron may have strung us out on the "will he, won't he" bullsh*t for two years before slapping us in the face in primetime, but Howard has actually gone out of his way to play "will he, won't he", said he would stay, then said he wouldn't play under Stan Van Gundy again, then waited until after they fired the f*cking coach and announced that he wanted to leave anyway. What a f*cking cockbag.

Last night ESPN made the comment (which I'm sure they stole it from someone else), this was 'Dwight: The Indecision'...
 
2012-07-11 07:18:01 PM
He is making LeBron's douchebaggery look less offensive. At least James played out his contract and went the free agent route before ripping a city's heart out.

Howard could have done that last year if he hadn't lied and said loyalty made him want to sign an extension. all he did was cheat himself out of free agency. He could be with Brooklyn already if he hadn't done that.

He should just go to the Lakers now. Kobe, Howard, Gasol, Nash? Smells like rings.

I couldn't get that article to load on my phone but I'm guessing D-bag didn't get his magic wish granted to go hobnob with celebs in NYC? Where does he go now? I heard the Rockets were licking their chops to get him but I doubt he'll want to be here and I'm not sure about dealing with the devil. I know Morey wants a superstar BAD but I'm sure Darth Stern would just block it anyway so he could go to the Lakers.

I hope Dwight Howard sues the league for this. The dude wanted to play in Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Nets decided that they did not want his services. How is this not a criminal offense? Dwight Howard does not have a team to play for now. That's assault. A no-good, rotten, dirty assault.

Like the way he made sure Chris Paul went to the Lakers?

Herr Stern can not block a Dwight Howard trade unless it violates the collective bargaining agreement. The only reason he was able to put the kibosh on the Lakers trade for CP3 is that the Hornets were league-owned at the time, which meant he was acting as their owner and could kill the trade on a whim.

The scuttlebutt is Lakers trade Bynum to Houston (where has said he would sign an extension,) Houston sends a bunch of picks and crap to Orlando and Orlando sends Howard and a crappy contract for someone else to the Lakers.

Lakers could lose out big time though as Howard has said he won't sign an extension to stay in L.A.

Howard, you see, is a moran.

And not only that... at least James waited a few series into the Playoffs before quitting on the team. I think Howard quit at the end of regular season, with his team having a high Playoff seed. I really felt bad for those Orlando fans.

LeBron was evasive, but i see Howard as being outright dishonest.

I agree. Dwight is just as big an ass as Lebiatch. However, I don't think that Dwight has a mom that bangs his teammates. Maybe I am wrong.

LucklessWonder: What do the Magic end up with in most of these trade scenarios, nothing but shiat players with expiring contracts and draft picks, right?


Pretty much. They also get to dump Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson I believe. Orlando is on the hook for about $55 mil next season (which is about the cap limit,) and that is without Dwight Howard. They have been horrible at cap management. Remember, they already claimed amnesty for Gilbert Arenas and his $20 mil a year contract. They still have to pay him but he doesn't count against the cap.

They just want to blow it up and start over with picks and good contracts, without letting Dwight leave for nothing.
 
2012-07-11 08:37:36 PM
I like Humphries a lot and Lopez a little. But if the offer was those two plus some 1st rounders that would surely be late in the round for Howard, I'd turn it down too.

Seriously. As dumb as The Decision was, I never got the feeling in the months leading up to it that LeBron was actively farking with people. It seemed more like he was dodging the issue and letting the media do what they will. Which isn't great, but much better than being all erratic like Howard has been.

FTFA: The Nets reportedly offered four future first-round picks, center Brook Lopez and power forward Kris Humphries in sign-and-trade deals. The offer was rejected by the Magic

I could give a rats ass about basketball and I have no idea who any of these individuals actually are. However, if one team is offering you potentially SIX PEOPLE in exchange for ONE and you turn them down, that's pretty damn stupid right there. And this is FIRST ROUND picks. Not sure how big a deal that is as I only have the NFL draft as a gauge to go by here.

Anyway, this kind of crap is why I don't like basketball. Overpaid crybabies and a lack of tiger pits, weapons, pads, or three hundred pound roided up angry people.
 
2012-07-11 09:01:41 PM
And yet the Spurs re-signed Tim Duncan for three more years today and it barely registered a blip in the media. It's almost as if there's a way for superstars to conduct the free agency process in a mature, professional manner. Amazing. Take notes, Dwight.

And I say this as someone who hates Tim Duncan and the Spurs.

The NBA Draft is nowhere near as deep as the NFL Draft. By the end of the 1st round it's touch and go. And considering they'd be receiving those picks from the Nets, who would now have three All-Stars, they are likely to be late.

And like I said earlier, Humphries and Lopez are fine players. But Howard, putting aside his recent conduct, is a force. One of the very elite players in the league, even without much in the way of an offensive game beyond being big. In the NBA, where one guy can make a much bigger difference than in other sports, that's worth way more than two solid players and four crapshoots. Nobody would take that offer for LeBron or Durant either.

Actually the first round picks would suck. They'd all be (in theory if the Nets were even a playoff team) in the 16-28 range and NBA draft picks fall off the face of the earth value-wise in a quick hurry. Like anything after 12-15 is a throw in since most draft classes aren't all that deep. Not to mention the two players thrown in lack key big man skills (Lopez has been an inconsistent rebounder and Humphries doesn't exactly own the low block offensively).

Slightly off topic, do the teams pursuing not remember that Gortat was there to spell him when they went to to Finals because he was picking up at least 2-3 boneheaded fouls per game? Correct me if I'm wrong but he hasn't really gotten beyond those, has he?

Fair enough. I take back my snark. Hopefully something can happen where the Rockets are actually competitors again. But I have little hope unless they tank a season. Hooray mediocrity!!

The other two are right in that the picks would not be even guaranteed starters, but still the Magic are fools to pass this up. Both Lopez and Humphries are quality starters who could be a solid front court core, and even if those picks are not sure things, if you hit on even one, then you've just scored a solid 3/5 of a starting lineup. Plus those picks can be useful for potentially moving up in drafts. They'll probably be a lottery team anyway, even if it's at like a 6 or 7 spot, an extra pick in a draft could be the difference in being able to move up to get the guy you need/want, and having to settle for the 6th guy in a 5 man draft.

When you consider the alternative is living through this limbo for another year, getting whacked in the first or second round of the playoffs, then watching Howard sign with another team the first day of next years free agency and all you get is a maybe an exception of some kind...Unless you're the Lakers and get all stars gifted to you just when you need them, you have to get worse before you can get better in the NBA.

I get them being in the chase because they need a marquee name when Kobe stops being able to get butts in the seats; even if it is a bad motiviation. The teams that succeed in LA know how to market themselves and become a place to be. They'll sacrifice half a decade of picks to avoid a repeat of the the Vlade/Van Exel era in the early 90's.

I'm curious - why do you think this is? I would think that there's going to be more good amateur/high school/college level basketball players that are potential NBA stars running around than football players. After all, you can get better at basketball by having four friends, a ball, and a rim. Football requires a little more equipment expenditure and people, so you might have all sorts of young people out there that have no idea they're good at football.

The difference is opportunity cost. Only five guys on the court in a basketball game, and the best guy handles the ball a disproportionally large percent of the time. Football has 22 starters, with multiple units needing to work in coordination, so every starter is a smaller part of the machine
 
2012-07-12 01:33:31 AM

taliesinwi: I'm curious - why do you think this is?


to be honest, it comes down to how many people are on the court. if you look at how many people need to be on the field during a NFL game vs a NBA during the course of the game, it's a huge disparity. even compared to the Baseball. during the playoffs, the disparity grows bigger. most teams play nine players deep during then. compared to the NFL where it has to be 25+ (i could be way off). with a small pool of actual players, the ones that play are the cream of the cream

or better, you mainly look for one's QB to throw and RB or WR, or TE to score. never you DE or RT, LT, RG, LG, Safety, DB, ect to score. NBA? any position can score, carry a team, or/and be the defense. small sample.

hope that made sense.
