I would not trade Howard because Kobe eventually will retire.
Howard is proven very good piece when he is surrounded with the right system and coaching. Howard is still young and can be their Franchise if they let him grow.
Keep Howard but fire D'Antoni. Bring back that great Zen Master coach named Phil Jackson back no matter what he wanted.
Lakers Front Office F---- up pretty bad by hiring D'Antoni...There is a way to have this team work but not under D'Antoni's system.
“I asked them if it wasn't too much trouble, if I wasn't being too pushy, if they could execute what we were trying to do. And if it didn't make them too angry, if they also wanted to play some defense on the other end, that would be great.”
