That's why he left the Lakers. Not because of "the pressure". End story.
Make no mistake, I am not making excuses for why he did or didn't stay. He was a free agent, I have no problem with what Dwight did. He didn't like MDA, Kobe, Pau, Nash, Mitch, LA, but liked Harden, Morey, and Kevin, I'm fine with that. He had the right to choose where he wanted to go. I wish him well and I think he'll have a big year this year. I'm on record.
But I'm not gonna sit and listen to these Nelly ***** tell me "the lights are the same in LA as in New York or wherever". No **** the lights are similar in LA and New York Nelly, the lights the same in Idaho you stupid ************?
You get all excited about your concerts in Cheyenne Wyoming as you do in Times Square?
These guys in here tellin me the pressure is the same in Houston as LA, get the hell on with that. The Clippers play IN THE SAME CITY as us, think the pressure is same for the Clips, as the Lakers?
That's all I was refuting. Dwight is fine in my book. He did nothing wrong, hell he flew to us to tell us face to face. Stand up move in my book. But these dudes in here tellin me the pressure to win is the same in whatever city, nah, I can't jive with that.
