The Lakers season ended earlier today and since Dwight Howard will be testing the free agency market some believe Dwight’s career in LA ended today too. That’s not what GM Mitch Kupchak thinks. Mitch actually thinks not only will Dwight re sign with the Lakers but eventually his Lakers jersey will be hanging from the rafters next to champion centers like Shaq, Kareem, Wilt and Mikan and he will even have a statue outside of staples!
Those are some pretty kind words for the immature center that had his Lakers season cut a quarter early as he was ejected in the 3rd quarter of the Lakers 21 point loss to the Spurs. After his ejection, while walking in the tunnel to the locker room, Kupchak gave him a light pat on the ass and then Dwight turned around and said “I’ll be back . Thank you Mitch!” Actually it looked like he said “I’ll beat your ass! You’s a bitch!” Now most people would love to believe it was directed at the GM to make the Lakers soap opera season even juicier but supposedly he was talking to a ref.
To give the crowd something to cheer about, Kobe Bryant then walked out of the tunnel and took a seat by the Lakers bench. It was Kobe’s first courtside appearance since his injury 16 days ago.
It actually felt good, almost surreal, to see Dwightmare walk off into the tunnels and for Kobe to emerge moments later. So how does Dwight feel?
“like a nightmare. It’s like a bad dream, and we just couldn’t wake up from it. That’s what it felt like.”
