For Dwight's next role, he plays the part of the jilted lover...

Also while it's easy for all of us here, equipped with logic and basis reasoning abilities to see what the mistake he made, I'm sure if you put yourself in his shoes (size 16), you'll understand that like Spreewell before him: "he had to feed his family"...!

I don’t know how I feel about Dwight. I would have understood if he wanted one last payday. Instead, he chooses to be the backup to Embiid in Philly for less than he could have gotten here. He’s an odd dude.

Hack-a-Dwight when we got Philly 2x this season, now that we got enough bodies to throw at him!

Honestly I think Dwight wore out his welcome by the end of the Bubble. Was too much of a contributor so they grinned and took it. Did LBJ even show the same love he did for Rondo/Jav on social media (If so I missed it).

Dwight isn't for everyone. I'm glad he redeemed himself for us last year and was important for 1.5 playoff series. He injected energy for the regular season.

But for him to fail spectacularly to parlay that into a bigger deal, and took a paycut and is backing up an All NBA center is just so Dwight.

Dwight Howard, who is eating lunch during his introductory Zoom call, said he thinks this is going to be the Sixers' year to win a championship. "It's been a long time since 1983," he said. Also said that Wilt Chamberlain is his all-time favorite player.

Dwight will Dwight. Should have waited and let his emotions cool down. Could have been back with the Lakers? Could have gotten a bigger deal (when he said he didn't want to play for free anymore...then took a 400k haircut to back up an all NBA center).

Agreed. As I said in another post, I always felt that Dwight was a ticking time bomb and the Lakers were fortunate enough to win the championship before the bomb exploded.

This is where I'm at. I'm against him now because he's a Sixer, but my memory of Laker Howard is now the title, not the flameout. And some humility in place of hubris.

Whatever happens we got him on a good year with minimal expense paid. He redeemed himself for the last bad stint. If thats all we have to remember him by we are good.

Glad he held it together long enough to contribute nicely to #17, but he's a strange dude whose personality probably does wear on his teammates after a while.

For me it's more all is accepted. The way he left the first time, and it sounds like the second time has a similar pattern: unexpected, abrupt, thought it'd be a much longer stay, but found a reason to leave....it's more all is accepted Dwight, your flawed moves and all.

And, thanks for your contribution DH!

Dwight is Bruce Willis in Pulp Fiction; Lakers were Ving Rhames. We cool now even though Bruce screwed Ving in the money initially.

Philly has a good squad. Rivers is a good coach. If Dwight focuses as he did here Philadelphia will make some noise.

I'm looking to see if Doc can get Simmons and Imbiid to gell.

Anyone think Lebron and AD were getting tired of his antics, and told management to ixnay the offer? As much as I loved Dwight's defense last season, he did get annoying at times.

I don't get that sense. I think LeBron & AD genuinely loved the guy. If history is an indicator it's just another case of Howard unable to stay true to what's best for him.

I'll gladly eat my words if Philly wins it all.

Nope, not at all. 100% that Dwight being his typical self doesn't understand that backup center isn't the team's primary concern at the onset of free agency - he's literally self-focused to the point where he thought his little vet min contract needed to be sorted out on day one. Morey was just smart enough to apply pressure and take advantage of this. Nothing further to see here.

Pretty much agree with this. I would have liked to have Dwight back but honestly there was several times in the bubble he got very close to cracking and right after the season he started talking about how he wasnt going to play for free and kind of feeling himself again which he deserves to a point but it makes you wonder how well he'll happily stay in his role drama free for this entire next season. He could very well have no issues and I hope he doesnt even on another team but I wouldn't be even slightly surprised if he does at some point.
