Dan, You're looking at Howard the wrong way. If we can get him and keep him then I don't think anyone would disagree with you. But to trade him for this season and then hope that he sticks with the Bulls is a bad move. No center has ever gone to a team and won the championship that year. It took Shaq 2 years after going to LA to win, same thing when he went to Miami. Took Moses Malone a year after going to the 76ers. Took Wilt Chamberlain 2 years after going to the 76ers and 4 years after going to the Lakers. It took Kareem 5 years after he went to LA. Why trade for a player who isn't going to commit to the team and thus there's no precedence for that trade being a good decision.
