Good Day World!
What a sight! Mitch Kupchak met with Dwight Howard two hours before he decided to go to the Houston Rockets, and groveled for him to stay with the Lakers!
Coach DiAntonio, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Jim Buss, and Tim Harris, also pleaded with Howard to stay in LA and win a championship. Howard however, already had plans to leave LA one way or another. It was a bidding war between The Golden State Warriors and The Houston Rockets,and the later prevailed.
Still no word, as of this posting, on what the Lakers got in return for the leagues best center.To say the Laker’s future looks murky is an understatement.Who knows if Kobe can come back from tearing his Achilles heel? No one else has successful done it yet. That leaves an aging Nash with back, knee, and ankle problems, who’ll be lucky to play one-quarter of the season!
I can’t see Staples Center selling out NBA season tickets for the failing purple-and-gold dynasty this year.For a 50-year fan like me…this is agony!
Time for me to walk on down the road…
