Who knows what really happened .... Dwight isn't the brighest one
Or at least for 3 more months!
Thanks for everything Dwight!!
I'll miss Howard in the Laker uni... Sentiment that would have been far fetched eons ago.
Looking forward to highlights of a Philadelphia-Cleveland game.
Thanks Dwight, wish you could have had another run with us, but good luck!
Thank you Dwight... him off the bench made us bigger and stronger than every other team. It became our identity as the season went on and especially during the playoffs. A humbled Dwight is the best Dwight.
would've preferred dwight to gasol but sounds like he got salty over the harrell acquisition and bailed immediately
oh well. glad he was able to come back and make up for that awful '13 season and the way he left. who would've thought just a few years ago that he'd win a title with the lakers
"I've changed! But only for one year!"
He's a competitive guy that feels he has more to give than just token minutes. He practically was a 10/10 guy in like 15 minutes, and was SUPER efficient. His FG% was absurd. We really got the most out of his abilities while hiding his weaknesses. Just like in Orlando, he didn't appreciate what he had. Since there wasn't more money to be had, it was really a very surprising move.
I hope he finds his happiness. Who knows, maybe he's back next year. he didn't burn any bridges on the way out of town, but two goofballs like Embiid and him could make for some great Youtube. I just don't see it equaling championship for them.
Man, 60 more minutes Dwight, 60 freakin minutes. I wish he stayed with us, bummer
That re-signing tweet and then retraction were so Dwight, LOL. I really wish he had run it back with us. I absolutely was convinced that he would especially since we were really the only team willing and able to do so for a bit more than just vets minimum. He is married to a Sparks player and obviously things would have been much more convenient to stay in LA. But who knows with Dwight?
At any rate, thank you Dwight for playing a very real part in bringing us a championship. I was one of the big time doubters when you signed (I was opposed to it) but you proved me and a lot of other Lakers fans wrong. Props to you! And I will always be thankful for your help in getting us number 17!
his wife might be soooo PISSED!!!!!!
Or Dwight might have a GF in Philly. never know
It was the WTF moment of the offseason, I wish he could have waited a day or two while we shopped Javale. headscratcher but probably his stupid agent bing petty
only took til year 17 to learn it
Some people are slow learners.
Check the article I posted in Gasol’s thread. He’s claiming he got no calls from the Lakers, only the Sixers. Do we believe him or Lakers beat writers claiming we were calling him multiple times weekly?
Both are probably true... because we were communicating with his dumb a** agent and not him
The article said that Doc was the only COACH that called him, which technically could be true if Vogel didn’t talk to him. I know Rob said he was calling him a couple times a week.
I saw that and wondered the same. Or well ..... if Vogel didn't want him back we shouldn't either.
Or ...... maybe that was proper protocol on the Lakers who do things the right way?
