Dwight Howard Should Sign with the Seattle SuperSonics

+Read full article
Dwight Howard

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

After months of painful Los Angeles Lakers losses, one thing is certain. The Lakers are just not that good. They have nobody coming off the bench scoring any impacting points, they don’t know what defense is and Kobe Bryant can’t shoot every shot (although it would be awesome to see him try).  One of the biggest problems this season is Dwight Howard and his failure to mesh playing next to Bryant and Pau Gasol. The team just doesn’t fit and they have had more than enough time to try. This has brought on the “trade Howard” talks throughout the league.

If the Lakers try to deal Howard, something tells me it’s going to be a sign and trade type of deal, so the new team doesn’t have to deal with signing Howard to a long term deal. However, if he stays or is dealt as is, he needs to start fresh and there is no better way to do that than signing with a new team in a new city. The deal to move the Sacramento Kings to Seattle is all but done and they will become the Seattle SuperSonics. Signing a player like Howard would immediately put the new Sonics in contention.

Howard would once again be the center of attention and fans of the team would love to see the biggest basketball star since Shawn Kemp come to their city. People would worship the very ground he walked on and Howard would be a huge celebrity in the city. Things could get back to the way he likes it when he led the Orlando Magic to the NBA finals in 2009.

The 6’11 center has averaged over 18 points and 13 bounds during the course of his decorated career and he is still young enough (27) to start over with a new team. The Sonics will already have enough fans when they start out, but adding Howard makes them to sell out every game. The Kings are not very good right now, but bringing in Howard would allow them to sign other big named free agents and the team would be good right away. Big money would get Howard interested, after that, it would just take a quick signature and the rest will be history.

LeBron James Nails Lakers' D'Angelo Russell In Groin With Pass

Not cool, LeBron.LeBron throws a fastball at the wrong spot. #ouch

Posted by Bleacher Report on Wednesday, February 10, 2016

On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers made a fourth-quarter comeback against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but ultimately lost 120-111. Unfortunately, along the way, rookie point guard D'Angelo Russell was struck in the groin by an errant pass at the hands of LeBron James, and ended up on the floor in quite a bit of agony as any man would. Thankfully, after leaving the game for a few minutes, Russell was able to return.

Ryan Anderson Throws Down Savage Dunk On Kobe Bryant

Although Kobe would get the last laugh with the win, his second great performance and the Lakers notched back-to-back wins for just the second time this season, that doesn't stop this Ryan Anderson dunk from being any less disrespectful. The Mamba is in a retirement year, man, let him go out with his dignity still in tact.

Pau Gasol Puts "Shake and Bake" On Kobe Bryant

The Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls squared off on Thursday night, so naturally all eyes were on former teammates Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol.
