The Los Angeles Lakers are not in a mass state of depression over the loss of Dwight Howard. The Lakers are still just one player away from making a run at a championship. The question is who is that one player? Another truth is Harward is not the dominant bigman in the game today. There are three more dominant big men in the game right now: Hibbert, Mark Gasol, and even the man with an attitude DeMarqus Cousins.
DeMarqus Cousins just may have the most talent. If any one remembers last season's matchups against the Sacremento Kings, Cousins was giving Howard the basketball blues both physically and mentally. Another point to make is Houston's signing of Dwight Howard will not make them the odds on favorite to come out of the west. Goldenstate with the addition of Andre Iguodala to roster will have the potential of having five players on the floor at the same time that can hit 3s. Curry, Lee, Thompson, Igoudala, and Harrison Barnes. The Los Angeles Clippers may have the upper hand this coming season. OKC and San Antonio with the three wise men will be in the hunt as well.
The Lakers will not rush things going into training camp and beyond.
