Shaq was asked about Dwight Howard signing with the Houston Rockets and he said:
"It was expected. We've all been in L.A., and not a whole lot of people can handle being under the bright lights. Everybody wants to do it, but when you get there, there are certain pressures. I think it was a safe move for him to go to a little town like Houston. That's right, little town. I said it."
No doubt, Dwight will hear it, be hurt, and do little to refute what Shaq said.
I think it really is the hope of every basketball fan, whether you like the Lakers or not, for Dwight to grow into something amazing. The game is much more fun when there are dominant big men in it.
