Dwight Howard is Not the Lakers Missing Piece

There has been recent discussion that Dwight Howard will remain in a Magic uniform. If Howard does decide to sign an extension with Orlando, then this will smash any dreams that Laker fans had that he will be in a Laker uniform next season. But the fans should not worry as the Laker organization have the right pieces on the front-court for multiple championship runs.

The Los Angeles Lakers have what other NBA teams yearn for, and that is multiple seven footers that can dominate the paint. The combination of Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol, and Lamar Odom outmatch many of the other undersized teams because of their long length.

Dwight Howard has blossomed into one of the most dominant players in the NBA with his athleticism, but he still lacks many skills that make championship players. Even though Howard provides a consistent effort on the defensive and offensive ends, the three L.A. big men have proven that they each contain skills that outweigh Howard.
