Did you see that trainwreck out in Los Angeles? The season was about as bad as it could get for the Lakers. And in our opinion, it was all because of Dwight Howard. Anywhere he goes, it turns to ****. So now Dwight Howard has a decision to make and Steve Nash believes he knows what Superman will do. Apparently Nash knows all. Nash wants Howard to remain with the Los Angeles Lakers. Despite Dwight’s first season in Hollywood being described by the big man himself as a “nightmare,” Nash is confident that he’ll return. Why? Because he believes Los Angeles is the place for Howard (via Mike Bresnahan of the The Los Angeles Times): I’m very hopeful that Dwight will be back,” Nash said Monday. “I think this is the place for him. He’s in the prime of his career. He’s got his best years ahead of him. He can play for one of the greatest franchises in sports and an amazing city. This has got to be the place for him and I’m hopeful that he sees it that way.” Not everyone in L.A. wants the big guy back. Bill Plaschke, also of the Los Angeles Times, is hopeful that the Lakers and Howard decide to part ways. He doesn’t believe that Howard can handle being the face of the Lakers. We agree. This is especially true in a town that is used to winning. You can’t blame Kobe either. He does whatever it takes to win and that means playing with people or dragging them along. So Nash wants him back. Does Kobe? Does Pau? Does Jaaaaaack? If it were our team, we could cut him lose and start over. Funny how both Bynum and Howard are two of the most wanted big men, but at the same time, the two most overrated dudes going. Whatever happens, it will be an interesting summer in Los Angeles. At least they have the Kings to watch.
