Being a Dwight Howard fan is like being a Jets fan, I should know because I’m both. Just like the Jets you Like Dwight and you can see his potential but then he makes stupid moves, opens his mouth, or just doesn’t show up when he should. Well Dwight’s done it again; apparently someone at CBS has found out that Dwight is interested in the Rockets. This is such a pain because I think Dwight could be great in L.A. and I think he should stay. He could be amazing for the Rockets and since I’m a slight Rockets fan I think he should go, but what would be best for Dwight? Personally I’d say Dwight would be better off in L.A. but there would need to be a lot of work done, such as a coaching change and figuring out how to get all these star players playing together. Though I think a short run to success would be much easier to achieve if Dwight went to the Rockets, who wouldn’t have to change much if they brought Dwight in. I can’t remember who said it but I remember someone saying that the Rockets are what the Thunder were three years ago, add Dwight and may just skip those three years.
“With six weeks to go before Howard becomes an unrestricted free agent, the team that is said to intrigue him the most is the Houston Rockets, according to multiple people briefed on internal conversations surrounding Howard’s free-agent decision,” CBS reported. “The Rockets have a young star, James Harden, who has proved himself worthy of playing the leading role for the franchise; a budding 3-point shooting threat in Chandler Parsons; a defensive-minded coach in Kevin McHale; and Omer Asik, the kind of 7-footer Howard is believed to want next to him in the frontcourt.”
With Lin, Harden and professional pest Patrick Beverly, Houston is strong in the backcourt. With Asik, it has one of the league’s best interior defenders and in Chandler Parsons it has a versatile small forward who is grossly underpaid. The problem last year was that the Rockets lacked scoring on the block, and the “best” big man in the league could just change that.
This looks to be an exciting off season in the NBA, and Dwight might just be the focus of it he decides not to re-sign with the Lakers.
