How Desperate Were the Lakers to Re-Sign Dwight Howard? (VIDEO)

The Dwightmare, the D12 Decision, D-Day Pt. 2—whatever you want to call it—is over. But Lakers fans continue to ask the question, “Why?” Not, “Why did Dwight leave?” but, “Why did the organization show so much desperation in trying to bring him back?” During ESPY week, we asked some of your favorite players and personalities about the Lakers’ display of desperation for Dwight Howard.

    That #stayd12 stuff was f*cking embarrassing. Orlando can do that, but the Lakers? it was pathetic. Honestly I don’t see the Celtics doing such thing, teams of that stature don’t beg. Can you imagine a Louis Roeder ad saying: Please drink Cristal Champagne? Of course not, that doesn’t happen. That move had Fredo Corleone’s seal: Pathetic and useless. He’s making the franchise lose its luster with his stupid decisions. He needs to take a boat and go pray a hail Mary.

    Who was LA’s point person in the Rent-A-Center negotiations? Keith Sweat?

    Cedric Ceballos is a Lakers legend? He played there 2 1/2 seasons.

    lol. The band wagoners appear to be the sore losers as many true Lakers fans never wanted DH given that he didn’t have the work ethic and mental toughness to play in a franchise that demands competitive play. This is why many don’t like management given that aside of being clueless they ended up begging DH to stay.

    It made them look desperate and given than some within management mentioned that they knew DH was coming back they failed to initiate plan B sooner. Jim Bust and M Kupcake could’ve gone after ex. Iguadola to help in the paint and other talent during FA instead of wasting their time as some of these players ended up taking lesser pay with other teams.

    Although some of the latest pickups improves the 2nd team I see us as a lower middle playoff team. I don’t even think Phil could be brought back for the type of pay he’d demand which leaves us stuck with Dumbtoni for another year. Let’s not even mention revenue sharing which is another topic in itself as the Lakers are getting screwed over for being one of the top valued NBA franchises.
