Cohen 8-Ball: Could It Actually Be True?
DWIGHT TO DAL OR ATL? Cohen’s Analysis: His statistics are plummeting, his reputation is always fluctuating and his opportunity to be the focal point of an offense is vanishing. Dwight Howard’s first few months in L.A. have been substandard. While it may be the idyllic city for a superstar of Dwight’s caliber, Los Angeles may not be the best basketball destination for the assumed to be future Hall of Famer. Dallas, with player-friendly owner Mark Cuban, and Atlanta, with fellow hometown heroes Josh Smith and Lou Williams already present, have sufficient salary cap space next summer to try and lure the perennial All-Star. If the Lakers don’t advance past the First Round of the playoffs or qualify at all, D12 will really need to survey the landscape of the league and perhaps bolt Hollywood.
