You take the good, you take the bad, Dwight Howard's a Laker, now what do you have?
NBA offseason madness.
The Association has been a hotbed for player movement this summer, with plenty of teams placing themselves within the thick of the action.
Though some franchises have succeeded in their attempt to secure a promising present and/or future, other organizations will look back on this offseason wishing they could change the past. And while every acquisition of the summer can be justified—and even embraced—to a certain extent, none of them are free from criticism.
When the most detrimental cons begin outweigh the most noteworthy pros, though, that's when teams are in trouble.
So, should the Lakers be worried about Howard? Will Joe Johnson render the Nets contenders? Is there a method to the madness that is Jason Terry's latest batch of ink?
Even in the offseason, basketball never stops, so we're not going to either.
*Note: Acquisitions will refer to the most noteworthy players that switched teams via trade or free agency; players who re-signed with current teams will not be considered.
