I have seen Kobe Bryant smiling and talking with Phil Jackson after losing games as well, so some one needs to get real here and get a clue
I can tell you right now old school players didn't smile and laugh after losses. They weren't buddies with opposing players during the game.....Act like a champion. Take losses hard, and win and lose with class.And there you have it! Yeah, I would like to see Dwight enjoy playing the game he loves, but he needs to take it seriously as well. Again, the two need not be mutually exclusive.
"What makes him a cancer is that he obviously puts himself above his team . . . "He "obviously" puts himself above his team? Please explain that a little better, Butch. I saw a guy playing with a bad back and numbing legs all season when he didn't have to, so it takes a lot of brass IMO to suggest he's "above his team." It's actually the complete opposite.
"[H]e's not worth the cap space he'll demand. He's a great defensive player, IF healthy, but he's a killer on offense. Plus, we don't know if he'll ever be healthy. Any deal, with any team, that Nets a good young "big' (Horford) and a good young anything (L.Williams) should be taken in a heartbeat."This is your personal opinion, and does nothing to explain why Howard is a "cancer." Meanwhile every single team in the league would gladly line up to have Howard on their roster instead of Horford and Williams. If you don't think the best center in a league deplete of centers is not worth a max deal, especially when he's proven that he can still put those numbers up despite the injuries he's had, then we're not going to get anywhere with this and we should just stop now.
"Even if 100% healthy, after the last 3 seasons of chaos, what "superstar" is going to want to play with Howard? The "Howard is the Lakers Future" campaign was a mistake and needs to end ASAP."I sure hope you're not one of those Kobe fanboys I love so much. Howard's not a ballhog, he's the best rebounder and defender in the game EVEN WHEN HE'S NOT HEALTHY so you're absolutely grasping at straws or delusional if you don't think another superstar wants to play with that type of guy.
We can debate forever who's the best center, but saying he's a "cancer" is just absurdThat is funny because there is really no debate that Dwight is the best center.
