The Dubs’ Dwight Howard Trade Connection
The Dwight Howard “Indecision” saga is finally over.
The six-time All-Star is headed West to the Lakers, teaming up with Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Pau Gasol and the artist formerly known as Ron Artest.
With four teams involved in the blockbuster trade, it is easy for the rest of the NBA to be a little bit jealous that they weren’t invited to the trade party. The Warriors especially, are used to not being participants in deals containing a superstar player but surprisingly enough, the Warriors do have a small connection that facilitated the D12 deal.
According to Marc Spears,
That second-rounder was originally sent to the Knicks in the deal that brought David Lee to Golden State which was then shipped to Denver in the trade that brought Carmelo Anthony to New York.
Yes, I’m probably grasping at straws here to get the Warriors’ name thrown into the biggest NBA story of the summer, but isn’t that better than discussing how much better the Lakers have become or even how Denver got better with the acquisition of Andre Iguodala thus making it that much harder for the Warriors to sneak into the playoffs?
Well, isn’t it?
