    I think Dwight is the most annoying and one of the most untrustworthy players in the NBA. I have to give him credit this time. He didn't wait and string it out. I thought he would take his time in signing with a team. I don't think Houston is a championship contender without another big piece, but he has a lot of mouths to feed and he didn't just go for the money (although he will be getting a nice chunk)

    And FYI, I am not sure a rumor mill on the Internet qualifies as research

    I was just playing with you. Did you read what I wrote?

    Either way, he obviously doesn't worry about that stuff.

    I still agree with Doyel that he is a loser. I would like to have his talent and bank account though...

    I think its the manner in which he did it that put off many people, including myself.

    Basically getting Van Gundy fired and then not staying.

    Financially and for his career, both were probably the right move.

    I guess it is sort of like the LeBron James situation. Most people would agree that it was the right decision, but didn't care for The Decision on ESPN.

    orlando, i understand the anger in terms of how he left. although, leaving is leaving. there is no way he was going to leave that left people happy. i'd still be bitter about shaq if i was an orlando fan.

    with regard to leaving l.a., he'd be a fool not to. it's a team loaded with members of the aarp and (again playing devil's advocate here), it's kobe's team. it's kobe's way or the highway.

    if, and big if here, the rockets stay healthy, parsons and harden continue to improve (which they should considering they are still on the upswing in their career), and howard learns at least one post move from kevin mchale, the rockets are going to be a tough, tough team to beat.

    They screwed up those finals by bringing back Jameer clanker Nelson. Skip to my lou was playing lights out. It ruined the chemistry. I have always blamed Jameer for that debacle. That guy was never more than mediocre. Held the team back for years.

    Then Otis lost his marbles and changed three starters from the previous finals. He gets the blame there. Poor management lead to Dwight leaving. The front office sucked.

    Bingo. That team was very good. Many forget they were a missed layup at the buzzer away from making it a very tight NBA Finals vs. LAL.

    For his entire career, DH was considered one of the good guys in the NBA. A generally good person. He leads an Orlando team to the NBA Finals. Suddenly this whole thing blows up in the last two years, though I would argue this past year in LA he really didn't do anything wrong, and he handled this free agency thing well--moving through it quickly and making a timely decision.

    Amazing how one year can change people's perception of you. Just like one decision in LBJ's case.

    Idiotic article full of baseless BS. Howard is one of the best players in the NBA.

    Most of Howard's PR damage was done in how he forced his way out of Orlando.

    To me you can only say DH is correct if you watched none of the games and just looked at the roster.

    Hedo Turkoglu and Rashard Lewis were huge for the Magic. Howard led the team in scoring in the NBA Finals for all of 1 game. Lewis led for 3. If you look at Wins Shared for the season Turkoglu and Lewis weren't far behind Howard. Howard was the best player on the team but he wasn't doing it alone. It wasn't like LeBron carrying Cleveland.

    I'm a Magic fan who still likes Dwight. I was actually in MSG when Orlando drafted him.

    Certainly hated how he ran SVG out of town. But I blame Magic management more than Dwight for that. Same thing with some of the less-than-stellar roster moves that were made (as I've heard) at Dwight's request. Management should have refused any moves that weren't in the best interest of the team.

    I think Dwight is a good person who has too many of the wrong people around him. I mean look at his waiver of the opt out clause when he was still with Orlando. Worst thing in the world he could have done if he had already given up on the Magic at that point. I honestly believe that was a decision Dwight made without his handlers' interference.

    And now there's this. I agree that his decision to join Houston was handled much better than his demand for a trade from Orlando. No question.

    It makes me smile a little bit that he jilted LA the same way Shaq jilted Orlando many years ago. While Orlando's rebuild obviously took longer, Dwight's departure will undoubtedly set LA back -- at least for next season.

    You nailed the main fact right there.
