07:17 AM ET 10.04 | At one point, the Dwight Howard sweepstakes included more than a couple teams. Howard had met with five teams (the Rockets, Lakers, Mavericks, Hawks and Warriors) and was taking his time choosing among them. Conventional wisdom, though, held that the Rockets, who did sign Howard in the end, and Lakers were the only teams being seriously considered, and that the Warriors -- lacking the cap space to hand out a full max contract -- were a sort of window dressing in the process. Not so, says team owner Joe Lacob. ... [Said Lacob:] "We were a lot closer than people realize to perhaps that actually happening, (Howard) coming here. I think that is a testament to what is happening here. He was affected by the presentation that he saw by our ownership and our management."

Stop with the Howard stories until he decides he wants to be traded again.

Yeah, I'll miss Iggy, but not his contract. There isn't a metric out there that justifies that amount of dough.
