But was it strictly about winning? Probably not. Robert Sarver wouldn't offer him 5 years. I believe he only would agree to offer him a 3 year deal. Chosen is right about the contract, the Knicks were the only team to offer him a full 5 year, $100 million dollar contract. I don't know if any other offer was even close.

Anyways, back to Dwight. He was incredibly stupid for meeting with the Nets behind Orlando's back. Sounds like the meeting happened, and now everybody is doing damage control to keep this out of the press. He'll probably end up in LA once the restructured Chris Paul trade goes through. But it will have to wait, because if they ship Dwight there now, there's no way in hell Stern or one of the disgruntled owners let the Paul trade happen.

1.) the fact that the magic DID NOT file tampering charges against the nets leads me to believe that no meeting ever took place. Believe me, Prokhorov and King aren't foolish enough to break league rules and lose draft picks over this.

2.) the "disgruntled" owners did not kill the trade, stern killed the trade. it was a purely basketball related decision. it was an illogical trade...for both parties.

I'm tired of all the BS conspiracy theories claiming that the owners don't want to see the Lakers be successful. Sorry, thats not the case.

Dan Gilbert's letter says otherwise.

The Magic should troll Dwight and list the Bobcats, Bucks, and Cavaliers as the three choices.

Story to come on SI.com, but Orlando CEO Alex Martins disputes the claim of Dwight Howard's agent that permission was given to talk to teams

So either the Magic's CEO or Dwight's Agent is out of the loop, wrong, or lying, or in other words, what the hell
