It is no secret that the L.A Lakers are not having their typical success halfway through the season. Howard being acquired by the Lakers was the blockbuster move of the offseason and it is not paying out as hoped. Even though he is averaging roughly 17 points a game along with 12 rebounds L.A fans are not happy with their new big man. It has been an injury filled season with Howard having a lingering shoulder injury that has been bothering him for the last couple seasons. Howard in a recent interview seemed very displeased with his team. Rumors are that Howard’s only hopes of staying a Laker would be winning a championship. This seems very unlikely with a 23-27 record in 50 games this season, Howard has missed 6 of these from injuries.
The Lakers are not the same team they have been in previous years, the signing of Dwight Howard was supposed to bring a dominant team on the court and they have been everything but that. Dwight Howard is not happy and it is very possible an offseason mood to move Dwight Howard is very likely.
