Dwight Howard says he’s not happy with the Lakers


via USA Today:


It is hard to know what Dwight Howard is thinking but it is looking more and more like he will be one and done in LA.

Per USA Today:

The so-called Super Team Lakers are 25-29, 3½ games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and just had salt poured directly in their basketball wounds by losing to the crosstown Clippers for the third time in as many tries on Thursday night by 24 points. And that says nothing of the endless telenovela that has unfolded inside the locker room between Howard, Bryant and the rest.

“There’s no need to talk about (free agency),” he had said during the un-fun scrum. “I want to have fun. I want to enjoy myself and not talk about free agency or what I’m going to do at the end of the season.”

And this: “I’ve got to do what makes me happy. That’s it.”

And what makes you happy?

“Having fun on the court,” Howard said. “That makes me happy.”

Are you having fun now?

“Not at the present time, no,” he said. “Hopefully it gets better.”

For what it’s worth, it should be noted that Howard used his favorite word while describing the up-and-coming Rockets team that could be instant contenders if they signed him this summer.

“I like their team,” he said when asked about the Rockets. “They’re a great team. They’re young. They play hard. They’re scrappy. They play together. Everything they do has been great. It’s fun to watch them.”

    He’s one of the most underachieving players anywhere. His immaturity gets in the way of his progress. He’s pouty, lazy, and childish. While it’s possible he’ll grow up and achieve what he’s capable of, increasingly it looks unlikely because he doesn’t want to do the hard work. He wants it just handed to him. What is more likely is that he peaked already when he was younger and hungrier, when Orlando made it to the finals once. The Lakers a horrible team, but you see nothing from Howard that makes you think he’s better than the rest of them. With this attitude he’s going to be a cancer wherever he goes. Already, I think his stocks and bargaining power have gone down. Yeah, the Lakers are better off unloading him (and everyone else). They need to blow it up and start rebuilding. They can’t wait until Kobe is gone. They are going to be a lottery team this year. What a sad, pathetic chapter in the book of a once glorious team.
