Excellent work from Rob Mahoney at the Point Forward mapping out all the on-court consequences of Dwight Howard inking a deal with the Houston Rockets. This just goes to show how much a single important transaction can have on the NBA, even if it just seems like one guy choosing a team. I can’t wait for the followup from Darren Rovell explaining the minute candy price variations and supply chain fluctuations after Dwight decided to take his sweet tooth to Texas. Cracked magazine’s regional fart exposé should be pretty good too.

  1. If you take look at the signing of Dwight Howard by the Rockets, it really hurt the Lakers. Before the signing, you consider they gave up Andrew Bynum who at time may have been second best center. Okay Bynum goes to the 76ers and it never works out. Lakers gives up alot for him to only stay one year and gets nothing in return. His trade to the Rockets leaves the Lakers without a player to really allow them to compete for a title. Rockets become a better defensive team that should be able to compete better with teams like OKC Thunder.
