09:37 PM ET 10.04 | If you remember the night of Dwight Howard's decision, then you remember tons of false reporting and Twitter refreshing. After Andre Iguodala agreed to a sign and trade to the Golden State Warriors, it was assumed that they knew they were out of the race for Howard. They were in a different situation than the Rockets, Lakers, Hawks, and Mavericks, as they didn't have the cap space to sign him straight up, so they needed to get the Lakers to agree to a sign and trade. Warriors owner Joe Lacob seems to think they were closer than we all thought.

Howard whines more than all his baby mommas put together. His happiness will be short term.
