Kobe Bryant says Lakers are “locked and loaded” for a championship with the addition of Dwight Howard

Kobe Bryant used Facebook to share his thoughts on news of the Dwight Howard trade. Kobe not only indicated that he had spoken with Howard but that he felt the move positioned the Lakers for the future once he’s gone.

Well, it looks like Superman has found a home. I wish nothing but the best for Big Bynum. I hope he follows what was a great season last year with an even better one next year. I know LA is excited about the deal and rightfully so. The Lakers landed a piece that will hopefully carry the franchise long after I’m gone. I have spoken to Dwight Howard already and we are locked and loaded to bring back the title. Wow, what a summer Jimmy and Mitch have had so far. Unreal! I’m focused on our semifinal game vs Argentina but I had to pause for a few to send you my thoughts, in case you were curious.

Locked and loaded huh? I’m ready for a parade down Figueroa again! I discuss my thoughts on the trade HERE. For the Sixers, they have a legit big man to man the middle and a bunch of shooters and athletic young players surrounding him. Bynum might get the chance to become the leader he’s desired to be with Kobe looming in the shadows.

For the Magic, it’s all about rebuilding and having real assets to use in trades down the line. Anyone with sense knew that after the mess that has become the Magic, a heavy rebuilding process was in order. Look for Hennigan to perhaps try and utilize the Thunders model. Remember it’s just a few years ago that the Thunder were repeat lottery dwellers.
