In Response to Re: Could Rondo Lure DH?
[QUOTE]Outside of the weather I never understood why Dwight didn't put Boston high on his list going into free agency. A pass first point guard and Paul Pierce would be the worst case scenario for his team of he was to sign with us. Signing Dwight gives us money to spare and we could potentially bring back Ray and KG at reduced prices and just try and add as much shooting and perimeter scoring as possible. When push comes to shove Dwight wants to be courted and feel wanted by any teams with cap space. I think we have a realistic outside show to sell him on Boston

Well, think about these issues in Howard's mind:
In addition to the weather you mention (read: women, clubs, endorsements, fun events off season, beautiful houses parties, etc):
1. Lack of the National media of NYC and LA
2. Rondo is not a shooter so he and Rondo make a team struggle in the 4th qtr.
3. DH and JWill are buddies.....and Rondo is not a buddy that I know of
4. Pierce (and KG/Ray) are getting old so who else does he have to make this team a contender for years to come like the young OKC, Heat, and Clippers teams?
I hope he considers all of the counterbalancing forces, but I can understand his current thinking.
