Albeit Dwight Howard is seen as the favorite player to replace injured DeMarcus Cousins on the Los Angeles Lakers’ roster, some people don’t believe D-12 is the best option for the Purple and Gold.
One of those is Jalen Rose, who doesn’t seem Howard as the right fit for the Lakers given all his accomplishments and the role he’ll have with the team in his potential return. On Wednesday’s edition of ESPN’s ‘Get Up!’, Rose went further, adding that he thinks former Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah would be a better addition to the Californians.
The Lakers are planning on bringing four big men for workouts, including Noah and Howard, but Rose has his clear favorite on this matter. He first explained why none of Noah, Howard, Marcin Gortat or Marreese Speights would make the same impact as Boogie Cousins, given the things the former Sacramento Kings center is able to bring to the table.
Then, when the comparison between Howard and Noah was brought up, he didn’t hesitate to claim that Noah will be more valuable for the Lakers than Superman.
