The NBA is widely viewed as the most entertaining league in all of professional sports and it was no different during the 2019 offseason headlined by the Los Angeles Lakers.

In a landscape-changing move, the Lakers traded for Anthony Davis and numerous All-Star players teamed up to form their own dynamic duos for the 2019-20 NBA season.

While the Paul George trade to the Los Angeles Clippers shocked the entire league, the most unexpected move was the Lakers signing Dwight Howard for a second stint.

Although it did not work out between Kobe Bryant and Howard during their lone season, he thinks his former teammate is ‘ready for this next time around,’ via The Talk:

“I think he’s ready. He’s ready for this next time around — to do whatever is necessary to help the team be successful. And I think he’ll do it.”
