Reasons LA Lakers Fans Want Dwight Howard to Stay Put

Dwight Howard's future with the Los Angeles Lakers is suddenly etched in sand, not stone.

With the Lakers' play well below .500 basketball and facing a steep uphill battle to make the playoffs, plenty have questioned whether or not this dynamic is going to work—including Howard himself.

But just because there is a call for change in Hollywood doesn't mean Howard is the one who should go. It's quite the opposite, in fact. Los Angeles has no intention of trading Howard. At all.

And not only should it stay that way, but those within the City of Angels should also embrace his continued presence.

Why?

Because as bleak as the future appears now, it would look even darker if Howard weren't in it.
