    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Which NBA Team Has the Biggest Salary Cap Issue in 2012-2013 : Why trade players or draft picks for a player that will be an UFA next year! If DH was healthy maybe, but he likely will be re-habbing to return to full strength for a majority of the season!
    Posted by BCSP[/QUOTE]

    Why? Well, there is this championship they are trying chase. The Lakers will enjoy a fully recovered Dwight, and then resign him to a 5 year max deal next off season. They will then have the next superstar player to build around to make their next run with.

    The Lakers understand the situation fully, and know Dwight is expected to be at full strength. This isn't some kind of experimental surgery, and there is little doubt in the outcome. Dwight will be back to full health for the majority, if not all of the season. 

    This is the reason you didn't want him in LA. You know as well as I, this was a big time move, with a potential payoff well worth any risks assumed by making such a deal. I think you are smart enough to realize this.

    Not so fast, this from LakerGround.net:

    "ESPN Radio will bring in Dr. Clapper to talk about it, but in the meantime lots of report saying that he could miss training camp and pre-season, to he could miss 1 or 2 months, and some even say until January."

    The good news is DH will likely be fully recovered when he joins the Mavs next summer!

    Dr. Clapper recap:

    Dwight had surgery 04/20/2012 which means he should be able to resume training, weights, basketball activity, etc around 08/20/2012 if everything goes according to schedule and he feels no pain, etc. 

    Per Dr. Klapper, based on that schedule Dwight should be ready for opening night (10/30/2012). He'll have 2 months to get his conditioning back. Again assuming he recovers as expected and at his age and conditioning there should be NO REASON for any setbacks. 

    Dwight will ALWAYS know he had surgery, he'll ALWAYS feel just a little different. That's unavoidable. BUT that feeling doesn't affect his ability to do what he needs to do. Per Dr. Klapper as fans we should be able to tell NO DIFFERENCE in the way he plays. He should have essentially NO difference in his skills, athleticism, etc. 

    By way, reading some medical papers addressing the effects of laminectomy on NBA athletes, those papers support Dr. Klapper's assertion that Dwight should be back as good as new. 

    That should answer the question why teams are still willing to kill themselves to get Dwight Howard despite this "back injury" issue. It's a non-issue moving forward. Also why he and his agent are very comfortable not extending and waiting for the end of the season to sign a new max contract. They know, all-world BEAST 3x DPOY Howard is coming back this year. 

    With Stephen A interview, Dwight pointed out that he absolutely felt he could have won a 4th straight DPOY if he had been fully healthy. He's ready to come back and remind everyone who he is on the basketball floor. The most dominant defensive force in the NBA basically feels disrespected and the league has NO IDEA what is coming down on them from the 5 slot. 


    Summary: If everything goes according to schedule, we should hear something by the end of August that Dwight is starting to work out again on the court, lifting, running etc. 

    Chances are good that he'll be ready for the start of the season.

    From Laker Nation:

    Dwight will ALWAYS know he had surgery, he'll ALWAYS feel just a little different. That's unavoidable. BUT that feeling doesn't affect his ability to do what he needs to do. Per Dr. Klapper as fans we should be able to tell NO DIFFERENCE in the way he plays. He should have essentially NO difference in his skills, athleticism, etc.

    No one knows how DH will react to feeling "a little different" (is that some new medical term?)

    He is a DR. like engineers they are always right, they never make mistakes!

    And what guarantees are there that DH will not reinjure his back, how did it happen in the 1st place?


    If nothing else, he might be healthy enough to come off the bench next year!

    Yeah, and that is so likely, Dwight and representation have decided to forego a 3 year contract extension that would guarantee him 60 million regardless of the outcome of his surgery. Dwight and his representation have decided risk it all to play out the season and get a 5 year max contract based on him being healthy. 

    This, because they know Dwight will come back and be Dwight.

    You may not be a smart as I give you credit for. As if Dwight's representatives and the Lakers would not have done their due diligence. Silly silly boy.

    This from slumz.boxden.com (posted yesterday);

    Everyone wants to see how Howard fits with this Lakers team, and if you are one of those people, don’t expect to see him play for the season opener.

    Howard underwent back surgery this summer and his healing process will take some time. The Lakers will be title contenders with Howard, but according to reports,
    it will be a long time before he gets on the court.

    Multiple sources told ESPN that Howard is expected to miss the start of the regular season as he continues to recover from back surgery.

    Again, the positive news here is he should be fully healed when he signs with the Mavs next summer!

    Just so you know I understand your plight:

    A stoner walks into an appliance store and asks the owner, "How much for that TV set in the window?" The owner looks at the TV set, then looks at the stoner, and says, "I don't sell stuff to potheads." So the stoner tells the owner that he'll quit toking and will come back the next week to buy the TV. A week later, the stoner comes back and says, "I quit smoking pot. Now, how much for that TV set in the window?" And the owner says, "I told you I don't sell to potheads!" So the stoner leaves again. He comes back a week later and says, "How much for that TV?" The owner says, "I'm not going to tell you again, I don't sell to potheads!!!" The stoner looks back at the owner and says, "How can you tell I'm a pothead?" The owner looks back and says, "Because that's a microwave."

    Report: Dwight Howard Will Miss Season Opener

    Written by Ramneet Singh on 08/11/2012 in News - 8 Comments

    Dwight HowardThe Los Angeles Lakers are poised for great success in the 2012-13 season and fans will be rushing to watch the team play. Tickets are already extremely expensive for Lakers games, but the prices will soar now that Dwight Howard has landed in Los Angeles. Everyone wants to see how Howard fits with this Lakers team, and if you are one of those people, don’t expect to see him play for the season opener.

    Howard underwent back surgery this summer and his healing process will take some time. The Lakers will be title contenders with Howard, but according to reports, it will be a long time before he gets on the court.

    Multiple sources told ESPN that Howard is expected to miss the start of the regular season as he continues to recover from back surgery.

    Plan D (as in Dallas) - which is where DH is going after he finishes re-habing next year!

    Even worst case, say January, the Lakers are still set up to smash the Celtics. I can not wait till Dwight and Gasol are abusing Garnett and Bass. Thursday February 7, in Boston, Dwight will long be back and the Lakers will extend their current winning streak in big fashion on the Celtics floor.

    Bass......HAHAHA! Poor little guy.

    Just like he was never coming to LA. What was it you predicted? He was going to the Nets, no, err uh. I mean he is going to the Rockets, um, er uh, I mean he is going to LA and the he is going to Dallas. 

    We know how well you do in these kinds of prognotications. I really hope you keep insisting on this, the more you do the better your negative karmic forces are for the Lakers. Watching you grip over this is actually kind of easy, as Bynum would say.
