Dwight is a better starting option than Zubac or McGee...

I don't think I will ever get over how he screwed us a few years back. Honestly, I would personally pass on him but understand how some would argue bringing him back. We are somewhat weak in that position. Now if he goes to the warriors, I'll **** lose it...

His past history with Orlando, LA, and Houston should warrant a hard swerve from us. Dude doesn’t have any right to act the way he did and come back to US like nothing happened simply cause we got LeBron. But I get why some would want him. Whatever happens happens I suppose

Setting aside pride and ego (which doesn’t accomplish anything anyways) that’s a pretty good consolation for missing out on and countering Cousins. Howard and Lebron share a good rapport. Howard was quite good last season. I’m on board either ways.

Based off of your post I have to agree. It pains me to say it but I would bring him back.

That was GSW’s initial choice (various reports) but they landed a cap friendly Cousins with the MLE.

I’m hoping we sign him. Fills a big need.

Well, to give credit. The mess created with Jim & Mitch were squashed overnight by Magic & Co. lol with the exception of Ingram, all players from Jim Buss were all but gone. LOL

Please stop the insanity. Re-sign Brook Lopez.

After the Lakers let Boogie slip through their fingers while they were sleeping, I look around and wondered how we were going to fill our biggest hole, in the middle. I looked around the league and didn't see any saviors. So we need a Big. It is either Brook or take a chance on Dwight. Hek, we have thrown money at other guys with as many question marks behind their names as Howard. So............if we can't get Brook, and we don't sign Dwight, then who?

17ppg. 12rpg, 56%, 20.5PER. And all of those numbers are right at his career numbers. No drop off.

No one was going to risk with Boogie with that Injury being reported that he will be playing around January still. in Short, he will be a big body who would be playing for playoffs. though, he has still time to adjust going forward before the playoffs starts.

I slept on this issue. I think he would fill a huge void. His rebounding and defense at the rim would help out significantly. Not that anyone is listening to me, but I am all for this. I am willing to let the past go for the benefit of the team. Sign him up!!!

Lopez without a doubt. Liked being a Laker and is a better fit. I actually think the Warriors missed the boat here. Boogie is the better player and sexier name to sign, but Lopez was a better fit for their system.
