Tweet of the Night goes to Jared Dudley, who didn’t want to get in Dwight Howard’s business, but did so anyway. Of course, Dudley has the rights to his opinion as much as Howard has the rights to his. In terms of why Howard wouldn’t play for the mentioned teams, only he has that answer, but here are some possible reasons:
The Bulls have Derrick Rose who is a product of Adidas, and Adidas wants its superstars spread out. Howard wants to be the man and needs a passer, so a pairing with Kobe would appear to be a poor fit. The Mavericks have an uncertain future at this point with a declining Dirk Nowitzki (yet he would still be the No. 1 option).
Meanwhile, the Nets have relocated to Brooklyn, where everything is brand new from a beautiful arena to marketability – they sold more product in one day than the New Jersey Nets did in one year. Oh, and they still have a guy named Deron Williams – one of the best point guards in the league – on the roster, who is still waiting for the arrival of Howard. Why not Brooklyn? Is it such a bad place to be right now?
As Chris Sheridan first reported, a Big Three of D-Will, Joe Johnson and Dwight Howard is within reach for the Nets.
