I know that it is an old story. I know everyone is sick of Dwight Howard.
However, superstar centers do not come along very often, especially ones of the caliber of Howard.
He has the potential to swing the competitive balance of the NBA in a certain direction, likely putting the team he signs with in title contention.
His two biggest suitors, the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets, would give D-12 a great chance at winning multiple championships.
However, other teams loom in the chase. Dallas has the cap to sign him long-term in the 2013 offseason and will definitely make a play. Could you imagine a Dirk Nowitzki-Howard frontcourt?
Even the Clippers might decide to part with Griffin in exchange for Howard.
At the end of the day, when he changes teams, the impact he will have on the league can only be compared to LeBron James' when the small forward left Cleveland.
