Two points (I suspect others will agree with):
1) I think Howard is an embarrassment to professional athletes everywhere, and himself. I've enjoyed laughing at his childishness and dim point of view from afar for the last 18 months, but at this point he's tarnishing the sport. Good grief;
2) I'd of course still take him in a heartbeat, though I doubt we could get him. If he does decide to leave, and ANYONE around him personally has a brain in their head, he should find a way to one of only two places -- San Antonio or Boston. Both have great championship tradition, consistently competitive rosters, and both have coaches who can help him grow as a player and a person. Chicago would be a runner-up to me. OKC also makes some sense, but I have my doubts about whether Presti would even want him at this point for what he'd have to give up.
If things continue to get ugly in LA, and he's to be taken at his word, I'd suspect Boston would be on his short list of desired destinations.
I promise you hes not thinking about boston lol.
Well, if what he's saying is true who else could he be talking about? There's a short list of teams more suited to win the title than LA
I don't think hes talking about anyone. Hes just saying he would leave LA if a better situation presented itself.
But again, and I'm admittedly playing devil's advocate cuz I don't believe him, but if he were to pick a team for fit and ability to win a championship immediately - is there a much better fit than Boston?
Well first, it would be a team that could pay him. The Cs can't. And I'd say there aren't many that: 1) he could sign with as a FA for real money, and 2) would have enough talent to be an immediate contender.
So it therefore depends on a large number of variables, namely what the team would have to give up to get him, considering he'd have to pursue a trade either this season or in the summer. Potential teams that would pursue him as such: Miami, NYK, BN, OKC, BOS, CHI, LAC, SAS, Rockets, GSW, etc etc etc...
