Aschburner: Bulls Give Howard Chance To Win Quickly, Repeatedly

(WSCR) Michael Jordan had Scottie Pippen. Kobe Bryant had Shaquille O’Neal. Magic Johnson had Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

All the dynasty teams in NBA history had a solid one-two punch. So who will be Derrick Rose’s counterpart?

Dwight Howard wants out of Orlando, but he’s made it clear he doesn’t want to play in Chicago — a decision that has raised serious questions within one NBA expert.

“The fact that he doesn’t want to be here tells me something about him,” Steve Aschburner of told The Mully and Hanley Show. “This would be one of his very best chances to win quickly and win repeatedly playing with Derrick Rose. It makes me wonder if Dwight Howard wants to sit on Jay Leno’s couch more than he wants to hold the Larry O’Brien trophy. Beyond that, if you have a center in the low post that needs to be fed, is that going to interfere with Derrick Rose and his space to get to the rim? There are reservations.”

Aschburner said Howard’s reluctance to play in Chicago might actually be a blessing for the Bulls.

“The game these days is not really suited to a dominant center, even if you’re the only one,” he said. “Now, there’s something to be said for having that guy if no one else has him, but if you have to tear up your team to get him, that’s a concern. If he doesn’t want to be here, then that’s not going to happen.”

    Dwight wants….scratch that….NEEDS to be the “star” on his team. He wouldn’t be that in Chicago. Rose is the start of that team, and really, the entire LEAGUE right now. Dwight can fool everyone else, but he’s not fooling me. He needs to be the center of attention, and HE needs to get all the accolades wherever he goes. That’s why he want to go to NJ. Williams is a really good PG….but he really isn’t a STAR.
