The myth of Dwight's list

Nets, Lakers, Mavs, we hear time and time again that this IS Howard's list of teams he would sign an extension with , however, I think it WAS his list of choices? Why has this changed? Because this list was made preseason when Orlando had leverage on Dwight. If he wanted to start the next phase of his career and eliminate the media distraction by finding a new home preseason he had to make it worth Orlando's while to trade him. Look at the three teams on his list, both the Nets and the Mavs had plans to feature Deron and Dwight, while the Lakers had dreams of bringing in CP3 and Dwight. See the connection? Dwight wants to play with Deron or Paul! Since the off season David Stern has squashed the Laker's chance of such a scenario, and teaming up in Dallas seems very difficult and improbable. That leaves the Nets, who maintained their ability to give Dwight what he wants.

Some may quote earlier comments from Dwight that "nothing has changed" regarding his list. I don't buy that though, that more likely a smart, well advised athlete who knows not to add gas to the fire during the season for no reason, since nothing will likely happen until closer to the deadline. The point is I do not fear the threat of the Lakers dangling Bynum. The biggest threat is the other LA team, but will they really offer Blake Griffen? If so game over, if not welcome to the Nets Dwight.

Call the bluff Nets! Make it happen with No Marshon Brooks and No Hedo.
