Default Why wouldn't Dwight want to go to the Hawks?

Hawks are legitimately a Dwight away from being a legit contender for a while.

I'm not saying he will leave LA, but the Hawks are a better destination than the Mavs.

If the Lakers fall short of reaching the Finals or winning a title, I say Dwight botls and goes to ATL. Teague/Smith/Horford/Dwight is straight up NASTY

Who knows...I wonder if the Lakers would do a sign&trade for Horford if they know Howard won't re-sign...would Howard stand to lose money if he went somewhere else?


If they just sign Howard outright...they could trade Horford for somebody...be a heavy team. Tho he'd do great in LA.

Teague still hasn't solidified himself as anything to get excited about and how do you plan on putting Smith, Horford and Dwight on the floor at the same time? You're going to let Smith handle the ball on perimeter even more? Great idea. They'd be best served trading Horford or Smith in this situation to get some shooters, then pair the other with Howard.

It's hard seeing him leave the historic LA franchise and city for Atlanta unless they were really in prime position to make a serious run.

Yea, I'm of a rare breed of people who don't tape myself to my chair and watch the Atlanta Hawks every night. Smith can't consistently start at the three. Defensively he'd be fine, he can do it defensively. Offensively, he can't.

(For the record, I want to see Dwight in Atlanta).
