If Howard joins this Lakers squad, that would give them the most experienced "big three" in the league. Kobe and Nash both have 16 years of experience in the NBA, and Howard has a solid eight years.
Combined, these three have close to 400 playoff games of experience. That is a number that can't be ignored because it shows that if they can get there, they know how to handle the pressures and can come away victorious.
Experience is key in today's NBA, and that was proven in this year's NBA Finals.
The young, inexperienced Oklahoma City Thunder lost in the Finals to the more experienced Miami Heat. The Thunder are one of the best young teams in the NBA, but that was no match for the experience that the Heat had.
Being able to handle the pressure of being in the Finals is the first step to becoming champions, and talent is the second step.
The Lakers have both talent and experience, and if Dwight joins this already dynamic squad, they will be champions.
