This is being reported by Ric Bucher of

I have heard similar rumors that Howard will go the route of the other young superstars in the league and bolt from his original team for greener pastures.

The new mentality for these young guys is if they can’t deliver a championship on their own, they will go team up with someone else in a different location.

Orlando has made radical moves to try to improve their roster, but most don’t see them as a threat in the Eastern conference.  It is possible that everything can mesh around playoff time and they can make a run, but right now it isn’t looking good.

One thing is for sure— Howard, similar to others, will not be signing an extension any time soon.

So do not be surprised if he takes the Shaq career path to LA.  Ironically, while Shaq got a Young Kobe when he left for LA, Howard would be getting Old Kobe, but the results could be the same.

    Well if Dwight were to go to LA does that mean Bynum would be history?

    And will Mitch Kupchak go to Suburban Philadelphia and get the next HS phenom I mean if we're going for the total deja vu effect.

    If that is true the he will lose my respect much like Lebron did. These guys seem so selfish and lazy. At least the jocks of the past were about team effort.

    I don't know why this surprises people. These guys came up in age of basketball where your AAU team has superstars from 3 states, as opposed to 3 counties. Many of them also chose what high school they attended based on their basketball program not the distance to their home. And they also worked to recruit other all-stars to whatever college they chose (this doesn't apply to Howard and James since they skipped college).

    @Mercedes2010 Why do you have an issue with athletes utilizing free agency? It's not like any of these guys are forcing a trade before their contract is up. If someone is offering them a better work environment, better pay, and or better rewards why are we trying to force athletes to stay with their company(team) when it's not something the average office worker would do.

    about 30 years ago ,Los angeles used to be called the city of the future. 30 years later los angeles has become the city of the new era. forget about new york. new york will still have it place in history but LA and Hollywood is now the place to be. Dowtown Los Angeles is about to become the sport meca with the new coming soon of the nfl stadium capable of hosting the world cup the superball all in one retractable staduim you cannot ask for anything better. on top of that downtown los angeles is about to become Paris and new york in one. New York by the staple center area and Paris by the grand avenue area. who doesnt want to weakness history in the making including dwight howard. The metro system will soon be the best in the country. not like that old new york, washington and boston stough. santa Monica, the beach life continu to improve on the daily basis. that place is quickly becoming the place to be. The only reason LA is not the biggest city in the Nation is because it is divided into different cities. in reality looking at the big picture Los Angeles is bigger than New York and I think the map makers should start considering Los Angeles as the biggest city in the US. Welcome Home Dwight HOward. Ndongo the man who is pride of LA the city of Angeles and want to intigate the change in history to give life his true meaning. The los angeles radio station starting a new jusnalist from new york can aknowledge that. fox they all moving to LA soon from opra to the media used to be freenzy from new york.

    i was born nd raised in LA nd grew up a Laker fan and Ndongo must be living in the good side of LA cuz no matter what they do to LA it will never become as beautiful as Paris, i can see it surpasing NY but not Paris. Polution there sucks balls but the beaches are the best. with that said it would be an honor having Dwight play for the Lakers but i see him resigning with the Magic.
