At long last, the Dwight Howard drama is over. Howard has decided to join the Houston Rockets, according to USA Today. He will be painted as “not able to handle the L.A. spotlight” and a bunch of other not-so-flattering labels, but the fact of the matter is Houston is the best basketball situation for him.
Howard won’t thrive in Mike D’Antoni’s system and with Kobe saying he’ll be able to play three more years, Dwight’s best bet is to bolt.
Dwight should be applauded for making the unpopular, but wise basketball decision. The Rockets are young, exciting and have a lot of cap space. Suddenly, it’s an enticing free agent destination.
