Howard

With the March 15 NBA trade deadline just a few weeks away, the Dwight Howard situation remains as cloudy as ever. Some people believe the Magic will wait out the season and take a chance on extending Dwight when the year is done, but he does not seem like a guy who wants to remain in Orlando. Their best bet is to unload him before March 15 and get as much return as possible. As for potential suitors, talks of a trade between the Lakers and Magic have heated up again as of late. The centerpiece in a trade of that nature would have to be Andrew Bynum, and the Lakers center insists he is not worried about the rumors.

“It doesn’t matter to me; I don’t read the headlines,” Bynum said Friday according to the Orlando Sentinel. “There’s a bank in every city, and I’m going to play hard basketball wherever I go, so I’m good.

“I really don’t care about it, man. You’ve just got to play basketball, just have fun. A lot of people lose that … it’s a business and this and that. You’re playing a game, and it’s something you’ve been doing since you were a kid. If you just get back to that and just play, nothing matters.”

Either Bynum is lying, or the rumors are clearly bothering him a lot less than they are Pau Gasol. A trade that lands Bynum in exchange for Howard would benefit both teams on paper, but there are differing opinions about whether or not Kobe Bryant and Superman could coexist. It didn’t work out on a personal level for Kobe and Shaq, but a few pieces of hardware say it was worth it. Bryant isn’t getting any younger, and the addition of Howard could give the Lakers the instant impact they need to allow Kobe to tie M.J.’s six championships.
