Our long national Dwightmare is over!

Sources -- Dwight Howard-to-Los Angeles Lakers four-team deal complete


    A four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers is complete, multiple sources told ESPN on Thursday night.

    A source with direct knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com's Marc Stein the Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, and the Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the other three teams.

    In addition, the Magic will be getting other pieces, including 76ers No. 1 draft pick Moe Harkless, a source told Stein.


How the hell did the Lakers manage to pull off this deal and STILL manage to keep Pau Gasol? That's a hell of a trade for them!

And how the hell did the Magic manage to pull off this deal and wind up keeping Hedo Turkoglu's horrific contract, while raking in ZERO lottery picks? This is a terrible deal for them!

So yeah, pencil in Lakers/OKC for the Western finals?

(Insert your obligatory "David Stern veto" joke here.)

And the Nuggets got Andre Iguodala; good deal for them, too. Plus Bynum isn't traded to Orlando, where he already said he wouldn't re-sign.

Bryant, Howard, Gasol, Nash: This is a team that's easily a favorite to win a championship.

Lakers' starting five:
G - Steve Nash
G - Kobe Bryant
F - Metta World Artest
F - Pau Gasol
C - Dwight Howard
(Notable bench players: Antawn Jamison, Steve Blake)

vs.

Thunder's starting five:
G - Russell Westbrook
G - Thabo Sefalosha
F - Kevin Durant
F - Serge Ibaka
C - Kendrick Perkins
(Notable bench players: James Harden, Nick Collison)

I don't know if the Lakers should necessarily be favored, but that match-up is going to be all kinds of fun to watch!

Mmm-hmm. Just as importantly, the Lakers have someone who can quite easily be the face of the franchise into the early '20s. And he's arguably already the Lakers' best player, with no disrespect intended towards Kobe Bryant.

Good to know that whining about your situation, quitting on your team, having your coach fired and acting like an indecisive jerk worked out so badly for Howard....oh, no, hang on, he just got everything he wanted. Never mind.

You'd THINK Howard would be content with landing on a basketball juggernaut located near the movie star mecca that is Hollywood.

But no, of course he's not going to sign an extension! He'd much rather put us all through this misery again next offseason!

I did not think I could hate someone as much as I did LeBron for his antics a couple of years ago, but once again I am wrong. Dwight Howard - you are garbage. The worst part is when Steve Nash went to the Lakers, I was hoping he would get a ring even if it meant another Lakes title. Now, I am stuck because if Nash gets one, then Howard does too.



Life is hilariously cruel.

I can't believe this is the deal Orlando likes the best. I assume some of those crumby contracts will be involved, but Denver, Philly and LA all made out nicely. Orlando didn't even take Gasol, who they could have flipped to somebody.

The Houston deal always made the most sense to me with all the picks, young players and cap space.

This one is a headscratcher to me. Maybe it will make sense when it all shakes out.
