Dwight Howard Leaves California To Think

Dwight Howard must feel like the weight of the world is on his shoulders, or at least the weight of 5 cities. As a free agent in the NBA he has had teams essentially through themselves at them hoping he chooses them. Every tiny detail being scrutinized in the media as he goes. Mark Cuban said the meeting was ‘fun’ and lasted 3 hours. Houston thinks they’ve got him already. Los Angeles took down their “stay” Dwight banner.

No here is another one that may or may not fuel the ‘Dwight is leaving LA’ theory.

There isn’t any word on where he’ll go to think about it. Kobe Bryant challenged Dwight to stay and let him teach Howard how to win championships. Being barked at by Kobe Bryant is unappealing, but learning how to win championships and possibly winning a couple could make it look better.

Never the less, he is set to decide Friday.
