What's going to be funny is when Howard signs with Houston, Kobe is out until Christmas, and Nash and Gasol keep the Lakers relevant early on just running pick-and-rolls like 50 times a game. I can see the ESPN headline now...."DWIGHT WHO?"

If you're the Lakers, why wouldn't you just call Al Jefferson's agent and tell him you'll offer a million/year more than any other offer he gets? I know he doesn't have the D12 name and won't sell as many tickets, but would probably be a much better value.

20 to 30 years ago a Jack Nicholson phone call might have worked on a white guy.  But Howard is 27 and black and already knows what team he wants to play for.

I think Dwight has always been more of a NYC guy.

The Lakers only cahnce of wooing Howard is by cutting or trading Bryant. Why would he want to stay with a team that is hamstrung by Kobe's contract for the next couple years, effectively wasting any chance he has of competing. If it were all about the money he'd still be in Orlando

Try Tyler Perry.

Most overrated player in the league.

I was watching ESPN this morning while getting ready for work and they asked people to send them their tweet or e-mail on the pitch you would make to Dwight Howard to convince him to play for your team.  I turned the channel.

Jack Nicholson is in the same category as Hugh Heffner - old (OLD!) Wrinkly white stiffs who were cool back when 'cool' was 'hip' but now are just caricatures of themselves. Why the hell would a phone call from some senior citizen who was last relevant before Howard could walk matter worth a damn?

Because of Nba contract rules, the laker can go over the cap to sign Dwight (returning player) but can only sign Jefferson for a mid level exception, which is about 3m a year.
