07:06 AM ET 07.10 | Steve Nash got right to the point. [Nash] was pragmatic when looking back at what he described as a "disaster" of a season that led to Dwight Howard announcing last week his departure for the Houston Rockets: Howard never wanted to be a Los Angeles Laker in the first place. "Ultimately, I think Dwight wasn't comfortable here and didn't want to be here and I think if he didn't want to be here, there's no point for anyone in him being here," Nash told "The Mason & Ireland Show." ... "So, we wish him the best and move on." Nash, along with Kobe Bryant, were brought in by the Lakers to join their pitch. ... "Frankly, I thought before the meeting, we didn't really have a chance and I'd like to think that after the meeting we had a chance," Nash said.

Apparently, not everyone WANTS to be a Laker...rejection is a hard thing to get over, but a great franchise like the Lakers have to and will. Don't say, "Every player wants to be a Laker" ever again, because clearly one player didn't.

Nash could be saying the same thing about himself. Somehow Nash didn't look comfortable at all.

It's sad when they have to put up billboards for Dwight to stay. They already knew the outcome according to them but yet they stooped so low to get him to sign.

If the Lakers were prudent or serious about keeping they'd amnesty Kobe and fire D'Antoni. These days all a franchise needs to free fall is a couple of bad decisions... that's where Buss kids come in. They are cool like Isaiah Thomas of blessed memory!

I was reading a story yesterday about how Dwight was upset that his teammates, mainly Bryant and Nash, didn't go to bat for him being injured when they were questioning his playing ability and what not.

If that's the case, then Dwight is just a big baby.

Howard's just 'sensitive'...not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you.

So let me get this straight. They traded for Howard on his expiring contract, even when he insisted back then that he didnt want to go to the Lakers. Then they fire " the Genius" Mike Brown, then bring in Dumbadore and the result was a very bad season. Then as the Lakers final pitch, they send in Kobe who basically tries to school D12 on how to win? Heck, I wouldnt want any part of the Laker too..
