Report: Lakers Would Consider Choosing Dwight Howard Over Kobe Bryant This Summer


This is highly unlikely for several different reasons. First, Kobe has a no trade clause. Second, Kobe is owed $30+ million. Third and most importantly. Lakers fans will lose their mind.

With that being said. Chad Ford of ESPN thinks it is possible that Dwight Howard could give the Lakers an ultimatum in the off-season and they would listen.

“I’ve heard rumblings that if Howard told Laker officials this summer that the only way he’d stay in LA is if Kobe leaves, the Lakers could end up choosing Howard over Kobe,” wrote Chad Ford

Nothing personal against Chad Ford, Chris Broussard or any other NBA Insider, but it appears they are just throwing stuff at the wall and hoping it sticks.

The Lakers could rumble all they want, but if Kobe doesn’t want to leave LA, exactly how are they going to make that happened?  Furthermore, who in the Lakers organization really thinks Dwight Howard can lead the franchise?  I bet they lose a lot of money when they go to Vegas.

Kobe isn’t going anywhere and Dwight is either going to take the extra money in LA or his talents elsewhere, let’s not try to make a story out of nothing.
