Just what the San Antonio Spurs needed, another big man headed over to the Western Conference to make their lack of size even more obvious. This time it’s not just any big man, it’s THE big man.
Dwight Howard is all set to join the Los Angeles Lakers, a move that has to make Spurs fans cringe. Somehow missing out on Chris Paul turned out to be more beneficial to the Lakers than if they had gotten him. They now have Howard and Steve Nash, got to keep Pau Gasol and of course, still have Kobe Bryant. Throw in Metta World Peace or Antawn Jamison at small forward and you have arguably the best starting five in the NBA, and definitely the best in the Western Conference.
The Lakers could be like the Heat when LeBron James and Chris Bosh came to town. They got off to such a slow start because the team couldn’t gel and had to go through some growing pains to learn their roles. It could happen, but I doubt it.
Steve Nash is such a smart basketball player and he will be the glue that holds this team together. He’s going to run an incredible offense and I can see this team hopping right out of the gate.
