Dwight is a sensitive diva little girl and I would say that regardless if he resigned with the lakers. I was happy they got him last year but I wasn't high on him the person then either for what he pulled in Orlando.
He went from one of the more likeable players in the league around 2009-10. Even if he wasn't on your team he seemed like a fun likeable player.
Fast forward 3 years later and he alienated two teams fan bases and has rubbed off most nba fans with his constant flip flopping in general. He's a free agent and its his right to leave but his constant flip flopping, agreeing to stay with Orlando another year, then demanding a trade then everything from last season. Dude is a big baby.
Regarding Houston. I'm curious as to how things play out after the honeymoon period. He'll have a happy press conference where he jokes around and talks about how he can't wait to have fun, but lets see how things are a year and a half from now. Lets see how long it takes for him to complain about mchale, gets bothered about having to live up to Hakeem's standards, gets upset with being scrutinized after a second round defeat, takes exception to harden wanting the ball etc. he'll put on the good solider act right now but its hard for me to believe he'll change the reputation he's brought upon himself over the past 2 seasons.
