Dwight Howard Disappointed After Ejection Against Raptors

Dwight HowardThe Los Angeles Lakers had one of their worst losses of the season Sunday when they fell to the lowly Toronto Raptors north of the border.

No one on the Lakers had a game worth applauding as Kobe Bryant shot 10-23 from the field and center Dwight Howard got ejected from the game in the second quarter. Howard picked up two technical fouls in the first half and he was sent off with 1:18 left in the second period.

After the game, Howard spoke to the Daily News, and the ejection left him without words. Howard refused to discuss the incident and he was clearly frustrated with what had happened.

“I don’t want to talk about it,” Howard said after posting five points on 1-of-3 shooting and two rebounds in only 17 minutes. “Not tonight.”

“Nothing they can do now,” Howard said. “We lost the game.”

The Lakers are now five games under .500 and nothing is going right for the team that was supposed to set league records. It’s astonishing to see a roster full of future Hall-of-Fame players perform so poorly.

Los Angeles is running out of time and it has to figure it out or else the season will be over well before April.

    It’s time back the brinks trucks up into Doc Rivers yard and beg him to coach the Lakers next season. The Lakers have no respect for their coach and this is the root of their lack of effort and trying (other than being premadonnas). Doc is one of the few coaches that could demand a veteran team’s respect.

    Time to float this: Lakers should look to trade Howard. This team is going nowhere, and it’s becoming painfully obvious that Howard isn’t going to be a guy you want to hitch your wagon to deep into the future nor for the last few years of Bryant’s career.

    Problem is Steve Nash and no one talks about it.
    He can not defend any of the guards. they are just to fast and strong for him and in a half court offense he is not any better than a average point guard.

      That’s just ridiculous. No one talks about Nash being the problem because he’s not the problem. His defense is not the reason Lakers have lost ballgames, and no average PG has his passing ability, shooting ability, court vision, and basketball IQ. Find another scapegoat because Nash is not the problem.

    IM A LAKERS FAN SINCE 1979 thru thick and thin. The Lakers are playing like a high school team with no direction. The front office has messed up this season 2 years ago by giving Mike Brown the job. This year is done because we play no DEFENSE. I still watch every game hope to see anyone other than Metta or Kobe come to play. Dwight and Pau are playing like two 4 feet centers. If you 7 feet play like and dominate the paint. Other teams are score more points in paint than Lakers. This is an embarrassment for a champship organization.

    The lakers can fix two things and take it from there. First, find a point guard/ shooting guard who can relieve Kobe and the lakers will be ten deep. First, trade Morris and sign Delonte West for the shooting guard and make Duhon the point guard.until Steve Blake gets back. Second Unit:: Sacre, Pau, Clark, West, Duhon. Starter: Howard, Jamison, MWP, Kobe, Nash. Kobe looks tired and Nash needs to start shooting more. The lakers starts to look like the Los Angeles Magic.

    Go get Delonte West to add up to the roster. He can help in the offense and a great defender too. We can still make it to the playoff if Mitch and Jim Buss will do their work now. as in NOW!

  • LakerHater

    Face it with the current roster the lakers don’t have a future….should I shed a tear NO! Screw the lakers, and I’m glad Dwight Cowards gone!!!! That jerk left my Orlando with nothing and look who’s stuffing now! Serves him right for making a mockery of Orlando during the trade debacle!!! You laker fans can talk about your championships because you won’t win this year, next year who noes you may not have a championship for 5 or more years thanks to OKC, Miami, The awesome LA Clippers!!! And guess what?!? It’s about time!!!! Haha
