I agree, if Howard won't commit in the next 2 weeks then move him and get something. You aren't winning a title with him this year anyway.
There's a whole bunch of BS rumors out there about Kevin Love and what not.
The Lakers can pay him more than anyone, but Howard is weird enough to leave that all on the table.
People will point fingers at Kobe over this, but there's no way this is Kobe's fault. Howard is just a weird, weird person that needs to have his ass kissed constantly.
