NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Los Angeles LakersThe Lakers finished their meeting with Dwight Howard this afternoon and the mood sounded somewhat positive after Mike D’Antoni, Steve Nash and Mitch Kupchak spoke to the media.

Along with those three, executives from TWC and AEG were present at the meeting as the Lakers were the final team to meet with Howard after he’d already met with the Rockets, Mavericks, Hawks and Warriors.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Kobe Bryant was very direct with Howard:

It’s not surprising that Bryant would try and sell Howard on winning as he’s already gone through free agency in 2004 and realized that staying with the Lakers would be the only sensible decision.

Howard stated that he hopes to make a decision by July 10, but it remains to be seen if he can make up his indecisive mind by then. Coming into his meeting with the Lakers, it was reported that the Rockets were in fact the favorites for his services, but things can definitely change instantly for him.

Regardless, Bryant sold him on what the Lakers do best and that’s winning as it’ll be interesting if he decides that he can handle all the pressure of playing in LA.

    agree with Arlene, Howard is the best center in NBA, He played injured and did pretty good, Problem was not him this year. BTW we cant get anyone better for some time to come. Thats just the fact.

    Overall Kobe see’s winning potential on this guy.

  • quickster007

    The potential won’t be felt till next year. In 2014-15 season, the Lakers will have 65 million of cap space. How? (Kobe salary 30 millions, Pau 19 millions, MWP 7 millions and if you tell Nash to retire that’s an additional 9 millions off the books) If Howard stays, the Lakers might be able to bid for the services of LeBron James, Paul George and Kobe Bryant. They only need a decent point guard like Mario Chalmers, Kyle Lowry. Imagine a starting line up of Howard, James, George, Kobe and a point guard. The most important Phil Jackson in some capacity have to be in the Lakers front office and make Kurt Rambis the coach exactly how the Heat is doing..

    • jwickabdurrahim

      And after that, why don’t we build a time machine and get a young magic and Michael to join us too. Could you imagine Kobe, Dwight, LeBron, Mj and magic?

  • TRICKS

  • Lkers4evr

    Ah, what about free throws? ..The opponent teams clearly are having a field day each time fouling him off so they can enjoy watching him miss the free throws.. LOL! Just sayin’!
