It hasn't really started up yet, but a question that is going to come up every now and then is whether Dwight Howard is going to re-sign with the Los Angeles Lakers. He's played in one preseason game so far and looked pretty sharp for not having played basketball for six months. Assuming he's healthy, most fans and basketball writers will assume the Lakers are going...
