    We're going to set the bar and the other teams would not be even close to match what we've got to offer

    Does Golden State even have the cap space?? Honestly if I'm dh12, I'd choose golden state. Steph Curry + Klay Thompson + Harrison Barnes + Daid Lee is like the perfect team for a guy like d12. Surrounded by shooters, a great poor guard in curry and a good big man at his side.

    You have to admire the efforts being put in by the Rockets organisation. They are really putting all of their cards on the table for Howard and I seriously hope Howard sees this.

    No one is topping 3 HOFs, GM, owner, and close friends.

    McHale and Harden won't be there.

    It's 2 HOFs, GM, Owner, CEO, and Close Friend.

    Damn! I was hoping Golden State wouldn't reach out to Dwight. I think they can steal him from us.

    They would have to do a sign and trade, probably centered around Klay Thompson or Harrison Barnes.

    Haha thanks for the heads up! Those reports were changing left and right, glad I got that sorted out.

    Either way, GS/Dallas/Atl isn't topping that.

    Nope. I could be wrong though. Lots of conflicting reports on it.

    This. Warriors seem like the biggest threat. It will feel similar to Orlando for Dwight.

    And i think you meant point guard, not poor guard, lol.

    EITHER WAY, none of the teams are topping that and that's all that matters!

    I'm excited regardless what happens. This will be fun. Been waiting for months for the Dwight Howard sweepstakes. Hopefully Dwight chooses the the Rockets. We couldn't be a better fit for him.

    Out of LA, Hou, Dal, and GS.. wouldn't he make the least money in GS?

    I kno he was willing to take a pay cut, but I don't think he wants it's to be a huge one.. would really depend on endorsements I guess

    How can GSW acquire Dwight? They couldn't simply S&T Barnes and Thompson. It'd have to be Bogut/Biedrens and Thompson or Barnes. LA won't take the contract of Bogut or Biedrens. It is down to Dallas or Houston to me. The only convincing argument Dallas has is that they can spend money next year. But a lot of other teams can spend money next year too. What makes them think they could acquire another star when they have the competition of the Lakers in free agency.
