Dwight Howard said he's happy with the Los Angeles Lakers but wont commit to staying with the organization past this season. "We're not going to talk about it," Howard said Saturday to the Los Angeles Times. "We're not getting into that." Click Link To Read More! "This is a place that I've always prayed that I could be a part of something very special. So I'm going to take advantage of it," he said. "From 1 to 10, I would give it a good 12. I love it. It's been a lot of fun. Just everything here, from the practices to just everybody. The motivation for everybody is championship."  The Lakers play Howard's old team the Orlando Magic Sunday at the Staples Center.  He admits it will be "weird" to play against them.   "Orlando will always be my home. That's where I grew up at, really," he said. "The fans were great to me for eight years. I have some unbelievable memories. But like I told you [media] guys when I got here, this is a new chapter in my life. This is my home now. I'm looking forward to making a lot of great memories here." Howard hopes the city of Orlando sees the positive things he helped make happen during his time with the Magic.   "They wanted me to come in and change the city. We did some great things despite how everything ended," he said. "We opened up a lot of doors for fans and business around the city with the new arena. "We had some unbelievable years. There's no reason for anybody to hold their heads on what happened in Orlando." Howard said the Lakers one goal is to win a championship and everyone is motivated to do so. "We want to win a championship and I think we're doing all the things we need to do every day to build toward winning a championship. Everybody's here late, shooting, working on their game. That's all positive signs for a team that's just come together. I like the direction we're headed."
