Big Questions Loom for Lakers this Off-Season
The Lakers finish to the 2012-2013 NBA season was an unimpressive one. With huge expectations going into the season, it seems anything less than a Finals appearance would have been considered a failure: so their first round exit against the Spurs summed up their dissapointing season.
Perhaps the biggest question mark for the LA Lakers as they head into the 2013-2014 season will be: to sign or not to re-sign 27 year old center, Dwight Howard. And furthermore, does Howard want to stay in Los Angeles with the Lakers?
Laker fans are hoping to avoid becoming the second team to endure the infamous "Dwightmare" - but Howard has shown no direct signs that he plans on signing with the Lakers for any extended period of time. In fact, he has openly state that he will be considering all possibilities this off season and sources close to him say he is taking a good hard look at the Houston Rockets.
While Kobe Bryant has made it known that he wants Dwigh Howardt AND Pau Gasol to stay with the Lakers, the team's future is at best, unclear.
Pau Gasol is the second highest paid big man in the league, and at 32, many fans and analysts are wondering if the Lakers will amnesty the Spaniard to clear cap space, sign other free agents, etc.
Gasol has no doubt been instrumental in bringing 2 championships to the LA Lakers, but as with all professional sports, the NBA is a business and ultimately it's about selling tickets and winning championships. The Lakers front office will have to evaluate if keeping Pau and/or Dwight is in the best interst of the team's future.
Lakers fans can only wait for news as decisions are made and players are re-signed or cut.
