Jack Nicholson's endorsement

I actually don't think there is a substantial increase in endorsement income; its more of a lifestyle thing - when the Lakers are playing well, the superstars are the royalty of the city, which is not an insignifgant thing, in a town with as much wealth as Los Angeles.

    I'm sure he could find a couple and maybe they will pay him more when they re up his contract if he's on a bigger national stage like LA

    The Lakers are a franchise that has done historically well picking up superstar centers. He fits the city well.

    Yes he is. How is he not the answer? No team can go wrong by acquiring the best big man in the league.

    I honestly believe this.

    The Lakers need to do something and if they could they would call Orlando and offer something huge to them for Dwight. The Magic brass would then ask Dwight if there were any chance he stays in Orlando to which Dwight says "Hell No" and he gets shipped to LA.

    He doesn't need that much more money. He's still young enough to sign 2 more long term max deals before he retires. That's a lot of money. He also already has lots of money from Orlando and his endorsements. If the Magic are allowed to offer him $130M in the new CBA but he can get $115M from LA I think he goes to LA in a heartbeat. $15M isn't that much to Dwight Howard. Hell Shaq left Orlando for LA for what only $1M more at the time????

    Point is if Dwight wanted to be in Orlando he would of signed an extension already. Just like Lebron would of signed an extension a couple years ago in Cleveland if he wanted to stay there. These are facts that no one can dispute!

    Until the new CBA is signed, none of us know what to expect.

    He can only sign a two year extension max. I don't think it's terribly out of line to prefer to sign a 5-6 year deal next summer.

    There is a reason you are worried. The new CBA is probably going to reduce salaries, and also cut the length of contracts, so if he was leaning toward resigning, he'd take the 2 year extension (about 43 million or something). I don't think contract length is the biggest factor for him, its winning & money.

    also probably true but he could come out and say I'm staying which he hasn't. He's probably gone.

    Those two go hand in hand? The Magic could offer significant more money than any other team?

    Yes please!!



    His parents still live and work in the area.

    I don't think it's a likely destination for Dwight but it's a darkhorse and a possibility for sure.

    I agree. Although he'll get more money per year, by signing the shorter extension. If he waits for a longer one (which will probably only be one year longer), he'll get an exra year or two, but he could be making 30 to 40% less per year. 2 years at 22 million per is a lot better then 3 or 4 years at 14 million per.

    I think that unless the franchise thingy is part of the new CBA, he's gone from Orlando if he doesn't sign the current 2 year extension (he has until July 1 to sign it.)

    We're all just wasting our time discussing this because none of us know, outside of rumors, what exactly is going to happen with the CBA.

    Ouch. Well at least your favorite player LeBron is still playing. Because no one is allowed to hate him despite him being a massive tool. You can still root these playoffs!!
