Dwight Howard Says Lakers Trade Changed His Life

The Dwight Howard era of the Los Angeles Lakers has yet to officially begin on the basketball floor with the perennial All-Star still working at getting his back to a 100 percent before making his debut.

As of right now, the goal for Howard is to be ready for opening night against the Dallas Mavericks on Oct. 30. With almost three weeks left until the Lakers take on the Mavs to get the regular season underway, Howard is on pace to achieve that goal as he’s looked better than expected during the first week of training camp.

Along with Lakers fans anxiously awaiting his debut in purple and gold, the prospect of the three-time Defensive Player of the Year re-signing with the team after this upcoming season is improving with every passing day.

Howard had the following to say about the recent trade to the Lakers according to Mike Prada of SBNation.com via Twitter:


Over the course of an 82-game regular season and potential long playoff run to follow, anything can happen with potentially a few bumps in the road for Howard and the new-look Lakers.

With all the different egos and personalities on this team, it’s very possible that not all the players and coaches will see eye-to-eye if the team begins to struggle.

Los Angeles is a hub for drama with constant media coverage and scrutiny surrounding the Lakers. With all the moves made and attention drawn to the team as a result, controversies and conflicts within the team are bound to take place at one point or another with the immense pressure to succeed becoming overwhelming.

Regardless of potential problems during the upcoming season, it looks more and more likely that Howard isn’t going anywhere and that a long-term deal will get signed next summer. Not only is Howard extremely happy about his situation in Los Angeles without even playing a single game yet, but he stands to be a very rich man by staying with the Lakers signing a five-year deal in the neighborhood of $100 million.

A bright future and birth of a dynasty appears to be around the corner for the Lakers franchise once again as long as the coaching staff and front office can keep it all together.

    it’ll be a good year but that’s about it. my sources say Dwight still wants to be in Brooklyn. I don’t know how it’ll happen but if it doesn’t expect Dwight Diesel to be upset again next off season.

         I’m a laker fan so that’s not what this is about. I wish we would’ve kept Bynum. I’d take a guy with bad knees over a guy with a bad back and from what I hear – Brooklyn is a chance for Dwight to build something. The guys is tired of walking in Shaq’s (the greatest center of all time) shadow.

       OK asswipe, Dwight is already willing to learn from Kobe himself on leading this team when he retires. Where are your sources, huh and why the hell are you on a Lakers site anyway? Get the hell off of the Lakers page and leave this to us real Lakers fans.

     Plus, Brooklyn is a great place. It’s no L.A. but it has it’s plusses. I love it – it’s my favorite borough especially the area where they’ve built the stadium.

    it doesn’t feel good being right about this but that’s what happens when you know more than others.
    lakers need to trade him for Kevin Love and maybe another guard… maybe. Lakers have been getting beat by quick pg’s for years now. When will they learn?
