The Dwight Howard Trade
So, Dwight Howard got traded, just not to the team we all expected. Most people thought that he’d be going to the Nets, but that didn’t happen. Instead, he got traded to the Lakers, transforming them from a simple playoff threat into the favorite to win the title. How is this with Miami looking to defend their title this year? Well, there are two words. Dwight. Howard. Let’s break down the two rosters so we can prove this.
Miami has Lebron, Wade, Ray Allen and the Bostrich along with a cast of scrubs coming off the bench. Basically, they have no point guard or center. Meanwhile, the Lakers have, for their starting lineup, Steve Nash, Kobe, the artist formerly known as Ron Artest, Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard, followed up by a very good bench (to say the least).
So here’s the big question: What does this mean? Well allow me to enlighten you. First, it means that Mario Chalmers is going to have to go back to the University of Kansas because Steve Nash is going to school him so bad. Second, it means that the Lakers have a Big Four as opposed to Miami’s Big Three. And lastly, it means that the Bostrich will be flying because Dwight Howard’s going to be throwing him all over the paint.
Until next time, you know what it is,
