08:17 AM ET 09.04 | And, now, Dwight Howard has giving Lakers fans some lines between which to read. After mentioning on Twitter that he would like to work out with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, [Howard] took the first step towards that plan by sitting down with the Hall of Fame center Monday afternoon. "Just sat down with @kaj33," Howard tweeted after the meeting. "Man God is so good. Was in tears. What a blessing. This is like a dream come true. Go Lakers." Howard then tweeted a picture of the two of them together with the caption, "Me and @kaj33 together. For many years to come." The "many years to come" will surely come as music to the ears of Lakers fans worried that Howard might leave after this season when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Truth? Besides if he and Cap are going to be working together long term, it'll have to be with LAL...

Or we'll backcharge him Kareem for the statue!

There was never any doubt that he would resign in LA with that crew.

It will be good for him to learn from Kareem. Ewing's game was built around his great shooting which didn't translate as well for Dwight. Shaq probably could have taught him a lot also.

Maybe we could bring Shaq in to work him as well...

Naw, that might be a little too much "In the shadow of" for Dwight than he'd want. Then the word "resign" might be appropriate.
