Like a boss.
I guess now the tough decision is whether D12 wants all...
Rapper and Houston native, Slim Thug, is putting on his full-court-press on NBA free-agent Dwight Howard today on Twitter. Stayve Jerome Thomas (Slim Thug) is trying to sell Howard on Houston’s strip clubs, not having Kobe on the Rockets, the tax laws and not having pressure to win it all this year.
Slim Thug sent out these tweets at Howard’s direction today:
Truth be told, this is an important decision for Dwight, so he needs to think long and hard about it. No matter where he ends up, this particular decision will define the rest of his career.
If he doesn’t perform as a Top 5 player in the NBA, the team that gets him will always be known as the team who overpaid for the disappointment named Dwight Howard. No one will remember the...

AS GOOD AS IT GETS
As our latest Dwight-mare begins, the Lakers have been pulling out all the stops. There's the rumored TV show that has been offered to him as well as a phone call Howard received from Jack Nicholson.
The phrase that is being used in the report from Mavericks.com is “Imperfect Plan B”. I would say that is an accurate statement in regard to going from Howard to Bynum.
Dwight Howard isn’t perfect, but at least he plays. Bynum would be an extreme risk, but it looks like it is one the Mavericks are willing to take.
Sources tell us Andrew Bynum represents an ‘imperfect Plan...
