So as the Laker Train continues on its track to a championship, another path is being walked by Dwight Howard. Now the heir to the “original” Superman, Dwight must come to grips with all that has happened. He requested a trade to the Brooklyn Nets earlier in the summer, that obviously didn’t happen so now he is in Los Angeles. Does anyone remember Howard refusing to take the road Shaquille O’Neal took years ago? I sure do! He said he would never do it, but look where he is, he is in Hollywood.
Funny this trade to happen this week as I am currently on vacation here in LA. Two hours ago I walked out on my street next to our house to get something from the car. I had been keeping in tune with all the trade rumors this evening, but I was disappointed to find out the Magic preferred the Rockets offer. I kinda just gave up on it then. So anyway I’m out on the street and I hear this guy yelling, “we got Dwight!!!!!” I was so happy along with the rest of Tinkertown, but I was happy for a different reason.
I am happy cause the drama is over, Dwight left Orlando and everyone is happy now. I am also happy to be rooting for Dwight knowing that he will stay with that team. About the Laker Train, the Lakers look like the best in the West as of now. With a HOF point guard, shooting guard, great defensive small forward, All-Star power forward, and HOF center. The Showtime can start again, just think Nash is Magic, Kobe as James Worthy, and Dwight Howard now playing the backup star role that Kareem played. Why do I like this team? They really are an image of Showtime Lakers.
The Lakers look great, all they need to do is figure out how to get Phil Jackson back and dump Mike Brown. Am I dissing Mike Brown? Of course not. I completely respect Brown and his coaching, but if they could get Phil back it would be great!!
This team = one Championship
Monta Ellis is one of the key stars in the NBA, don’t think so? Well, I have come up with some reasons why. Monta has a contract with AND 1 shoe company, he averages 20 points a night, and he is the face of, one of my favorite teams, the Golden State Warriors. Now, down to business, how is the man not an all-star? This is why, the fans want stars in the All-Star game, they want supposedly, “big names.” Ellis deserves to be an all-star more than Marc Gasol, Steve Nash, or even Dirk Nowitzki. Like I said, Dirk and Nash are knock your socks off players, or used to be. I really haven’t met that many people who know who Monta Ellis is. He is hardly ever on Sports Center, he hasn’t ever been an all-star, and frankly, no one is interested in the Bay association. They did get some rightfully deserving players in the all-star game this year, only they are from the Eastern Conference. Note: We all knew they would pick LaMarcus Aldridge.
Roy Hibbert and Luol Deng are such hard workers. Each of them deserves to fly down to the “Big O” to put on a show for basketball fans all over the world. I am very proud of both of them, especially my boy, “Big Roy.” I have watched Hibbert ever since he was a rookie, he had one of the biggest gaps to fill in the NBA. He was supposed to replace Indiana’s “Golden Boy,” Jermaine O’Neal. He has done so accordingly and look where he’s at. I will continue to enjoy watching the slim 7 footer for the rest of his career.
