"Our team isn't filled with old guys, sign here"

Apparently the Mavs have decided they'd rather deal with bad knees than a bad attitude.

When the starting lineups are announced, it won't seem like they're casting for the Cocoon sequel.

I have no clue why the Mavs would want him.  They're not in positon to compete for a title and I don't think Howard has more than 3 high-level years in him.

I seriosuly can't believe people actually want this proven quitter

Howard is so overrated. No matter which team it is, he really should just grab the highest offer then play out his years as he whines his way through his contract.

Howard is 27. The average American male life expectancy is 76. That would be 49 years - 2,548 weeks - of free grub for Howard.

Figure the least he would order in one sitting would be the Caniac 6-finger combo, which is $10.80 including tax. Surely, though, an athlete of Howard's size would have no problem downing the 25-piece Tailgate box, which goes for $29.75 including tax.

If Howard ate one Caniac a week for 49 years, it would cost Cane's a reasonable $27,518.40. One Tailgate order per week would extrapolate to $75,803.


Faulty methods: Life expectancy does not take into account effects of eating 2,548 Tailgate boxes of chicken fingers.

Why would anyone move to Texas to eat Chicken.
At least put some sort of beef in the offer.

Astro season tickets?

As a Houston fan, I don't want him.
 
2013-07-01 05:26:18 PM  
As long as he doesn't go to the Dubs, I don't care where he goes.  I'd rather have a healthy Bogut.

Isn't it racist to assume that Howard likes any form of fried chicken?

Seriously. He is from Atlanta, at least throw some waffles in there

We'll get rid of Jeremy Lin for you

We promise we won't ever compare you to Olajuwon

Doogled: healthy Bogut.


That's like bigfoot, right?

The alternative is going with the same roster as last year.

This. The guy obviously has the size/ability and shows flashes of absolute brilliance, but his head doesn't match. He needs to go to a Pop-like coach and organization that can control him.

That, and the fact that the only other potential franchise  center available is Andrew "no, you can't watch me work out until after you offer me a guaranteed contract, but don't worry, I'm perfectly healthy" Bynum .

The Mavericks should get Dwight Howard, and, while they're at it, try to get Lamar Odom, too.

As a Rockets fan, I'm not crazy about having Howard here for these reasons, but historically, guys usually act right when playing in Houston.  Ron Artest, Eddie Griffin, and Carl Everett are a few that come to mind.

Raising Canes is some fine chicken fingers. Not sure what they put in the batter but it's highly addictive, possibly illegal.

/ good sweet iced tea too
// and the sauce ... mmm

They really think someone can casually eat 25 chicken fingers ?

Yeah, or that draft pick Royce White.

Glad someone pointed out the fact that a national brand is offering a black man free fried chicken.
