I know the deadline has passed and Dwight Howard is still on the Magic, but there was this by Bullets Forever Mike Prada: "THE ULTIMATE SPITE TRADE 1. Detroit Pistons THE TRADE: Howard, DeAndre Liggins and Justin Harper for Greg Monroe, Brandon Knight, Jonas Jerebko, Jason Maxiell and a 2012 first-round pick (top-3 protected). (Link.) WHY THE PISTONS DO IT: I'd gut that roster for Howard too. WHY THE MAGIC DO IT: Monroe is quite awesome, and the pick is very high. SPITE RATING: Dwight Howard in Detroit. Let be pause for a second to consider that ... sorry, I can't stop laughing. VERDICT: This is kind of perfect. Monroe plus the high lottery pick is a great haul, and Howard playing in Detroit is just ... sorry, I'm still laughing. There you have it. If the Magic are really angry at Howard, they should get Joe Dumars on the phone." Our friend Mike's got his homer blinders on as he puts the biggest laughing stock in the NBA this year, his Wizards, at a miraculous No. 16. I'm still laughing at the trade and "I'd gut that roster for Howard too." We've discussed this here before, but I don't think I'd trade Howard for Monroe straight up.
