Lakers News and Rumors Recap: An Unsolvable Conundrum?

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio SpursThe Lakers are a puzzle, alright. They are struggling to get back to .500 and every loss has playoff chances sinking towards impossible. The Lakers are in the bottom half of the Western Conference after their fourth consecutive loss Wednesday night against the Grizzlies.

What is really ironic is the player that is Dwight Howard. Howard was named to his seventh All-Star game this year along with his teammate Kobe Bryant, but many are asking the question, does he deserve it? With a less than impressive performance displayed during the first half of the season, I would argue that it is rather disheartening that Dwight is considered an All-Star. As far as I can see, very little of how he has played is All-Star material. His injuries, which have been an excuse for his poor play this Lakers season, should also be a factor come the All-Star game, right? Maybe voters played into the hype, again. The same hype that surrounded the Lakers this summer.

This All-Star game will be the first Western selection for Dwight. However, this may not be for long. Howard will be a free agent at the end of the season. He will have the opportunity to leave L.A. for another squad, and sign wherever he desires. It has also been rumored that Gasol has told those close to him that he expects to be moved before next month’s trade deadline. If I had to choose, I would rather see Howard out, and Gasol placed back at the true Center position. Part of Gasol’s struggle this year has been adjusting to having Dwight in the line-up, but these issues could be avoided is Pau was allowed to play the game the way he wanted to.

Some good news; the Los Angeles Lakers are the second most valuable NBA team. They are worth $1 billion, up 11 percent from last year. The Lakers’ revenue increased this season, and will continue to increase with the $3.6 billion television deal they booked with Time Warner Cable. Despite a disappointing season, this L.A. is still known around the world and continues to remain popular.
