I think Howard is an overrated dick bag who doesnt have the drive and determination for sustained success. There is no doubt in my mind this will be James Harden's team. When Dwight figures that out dont be suprised to see a pouty little bitch. When it comes down to ball cutting time it doesnt seem like he wants it. Its encouraging that he took a basketball situation over money, but in all honesty I think it was more about not wanting to play with Kobe.
Its about not being the Man. These guys go their whole life with being the man! Went to the NBA and was the man on his team. He goes to another team he's not the man anymore he's just another player. These guys if they want to admit it or not, have HUGE HUGE EGO's and they love them to be stroked.
Im not saying its going to happen again, but this is becoming a trend with Dwight. Once he's not happy, he wants to go! Combine that with the pressure of needing to win at least 3 chips in L.A, its alot, not everyone is cut out for that man. If he didnt win, he was going to be crucified if that doesnt happen. That and well, shitty ass Antoni. It was easy to see he wasnt coming back.
