08:05 AM ET 02.29 | Golden State opened the de facto second half with what Mark Jackson called an "embarrassing" effort, which may or may not change the Warriors' big-picture. They want a big kill at the trade deadline, or else they might not do much at all. From ownership to [Jackson], they still are optimistic about their state of play and believe progress is being made, perhaps not in the record but overall. So the Warriors are reluctant to move a core piece by the March 15 trade deadline unless it brings them back a young, big star. Joe Lacob has basically narrowed that wish list to one big star -- Dwight Howard. ... For Howard, and maybe only Howard, Lacob and the Warriors are willing to change everything, and bet everything.

It doesn't matter what any team can offer. It's about what Howard wants. Leaving Magic for Warriors is like jumping from the frying pan into the fire... why would he do that?

The Bay Area doesn't have anything to offer Howard... It's either LA, NY or bust.
