Now that the dust has settled in NBA free agency and Dwight Howard has officially been announced as the crown jewel of the Houston Rockets offseason. The center sat down with ESPN’s Stephen A.

Dwight Howard took his talents and his baby mamas to Houston. The Lakers were not necessarily shocked by Howard’s departure, but had to regroup and execute Plan B. According to [...]
Dwight Howard wanted things to be about him L.A., and in Mike D’Antoni’s fast paced, pick and roll system, that was not to be.
Howard has moved on, taking his talents to Houston, and the now the Lakers need to adjust. Lakers point guard Steve Nash is prepared to move on, and told the L.A. Times, that the “Lakers offense will be more fluid without Dwight Howard.”

“WHO GOT DWIGHT HOWARD!!!”
LAS VEGAS It's hard to argue that there's a man in sports who's seen more drama over the past 18 months than Mike D'Antoni.
Since the beginning of 2012, the Lakers coach has been at the center of everything from Linsanity to the underperforming Lakers to Dwight Howard's free agency, and it's only now, a week after Howard's departure and almost a year...

I will never ever be ashamed to say that I love the Los Angeles Lakers.I've proclaimed my love through the championships, the trades, the coaching malfunctions, and the superstar experiments, and I've celebrated the ups and downs alongside the rest of Lakersnation with pride.I showed Laker pride despite that fact that my fellow Laker brethren shamefully rioted and destroyed...
