Tweet of the Day goes to Shaquille O’Neal, who apparently heard that the Dwight Howard deal is “going down”. It’s unclear if O’Neal is simply saying he has read the reported rumors of a possible deal – as if we haven’t heard or read about those before – or if he actually has sources that are updating him on the situation to indicate that the deal is likely to happen. In all likelihood, it is the former.
If the trade were to happen, all parties would appear to benefit from it. Andre Iguodala would instantly change the Nuggets into a better defensive team, Andrew Bynum would start fresh as a franchise center for the Sixers, the Magic could turn Pau Gasol into great assets and Dwight Howard would make the Lakers the favorites to win the title.
Of course, the biggest benefit would go to all the fans of the NBA for no longer having to wonder about the status of Howard. For the details of the possible four-team trade, click here.
