    Besides lebron and melo, who else will be free agents in 2014?

    deng, dirk, paul george, eric bledsoe(restricted), cousins(restricted), z-bo(player option), danny granger, bosh(eto), wade(eto), duncan(player option). Only players I really see leaving are granger, melo, deng(doubt it) and maybe dirk but I doubt it.

    ehhh it depends. Wiggins, Randle and Parker probably won't go to great teams and besides melo I don't see any impact free agents leaving. I think everything(the draft, fa, etc.) will end up being a little overrated..

    I think Miami should take a real run at Greg Oden. If they can make him at least half decent, they can add another dimension to their hybrid line-up, and have LeBron and Bosh go back to playing their natural positions to play "big" ball whey need the muscle.

    Imagine a front court of 6'8 Bron, 7 ft Bosh, and 7'3 Oden...That would actually be more even to face the Pacers with their Grainer/West/Hibbert court.

    I'd like to see that, honestly.

    I disagree re: the draft. FA is always overrated, but the 2014 draft is loaded with 5 or 6 guys that would all have been top 1 or 2 picks this year and many other years. For that alone i think it will deliver.

    I keep sayin, these guys (NBA 'superstars') gotta come from somewhere, and yes 1 or 2 from 2014 may fizzle, but the odds are in teams' favor to hit gold. You cant ask for more in this era of 1 n dones and drafting on potential.

    LOS ANGELES -- Dwight
    Me and all the GOATS such as myself agree and been saying the same thing. Kareem with the potent ether...

    Howard’s old avatar on Twitter used to be a picture of him in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform with the retired jerseys of George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal hanging behind him.

    Howard was expected to follow the Lakers’ Hall of Fame lineage of centers but decided to leave L.A. less than a year after joining the team to sign with the Houston Rockets last week.

    The two living legends in Howard’s old avatar, which he immediately changed after committing to Houston, have not taken the news well.

    On Monday, Abdul-Jabbar chimed in on Twitter and Facebook and wrote, “Dwight Howard is a perfect example of the fact that ‘potential has a shelf life.’ Laker fans should be patient and allow Mitch & company to prepare themselves to do some serious work in the free agent market.”

    O’Neal, while speaking at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, said he wasn’t surprised by Howard’s decision to take less money to leave Los Angeles for a smaller market.

    "It was expected," O’Neal said. "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."

    Both O’Neal and Abdul-Jabbar were critical of Howard even before he decided to leave the Lakers.

    Abdul-Jabbar told the San Francisco Chronicle last month he met Howard only once and that Howard expressed an interest in learning from the former Lakers captain but he never again reached out to Abdul-Jabbar. “He's charming, he's charismatic, very nice young man,” Abdul-Jabbar said. “Maturity-wise, he doesn't get it."

    When Abdul-Jabbar was asked about teaching Howard the sky hook, he said, “At least he'd have an offensive move.

    “He gets the ball on offense, oh my 🤬 , he doesn't know what to do. It's usually a turnover, people come and take the ball from him or tie his arms up. Offensively, he doesn't get it. Hasn't made any progress. We (the Lakers, when Abdul-Jabbar was a special assistant coach) played them in '09, and when I saw him this past season, he was the same player.”


    O’Neal was just as harsh in his criticism of Howard when he was on ESPNLA 710 last month.

    “He's too nice," O'Neal said. "I'm a connoisseur of giggling and playing and all that and making you laugh and playing with the fans, but when I cross that line, I'm ready to tear your face off. I don't care who it is. You could put one of my aunts or uncles out there, and I'm going to give him these elbows in their chest and I'm going to throw it down in their face. That's what you have to do. ... He's just too nice. If I was him, I would get into the same mood I was in."
