The Lakers with their "all-star" cast have been far from advertised at the beginning of the season. The Lakers are a few games below .500, and they have shown very little so far to improve a slow first half start.
Many of the rumors this season have swirled around whether or not the Lakers will trade Dwight Howard before the deadline. To some this seems like a great idea because the Lakers can get something for Dwight before he leaves the team in free agency this summer.

While this may seem like a good idea, the Lakers are not going to move their big man. Even though he is hurt, and the Lakers could get a lot for him in return, they are not going to do that because they gave up so much time and talent to get him in the first place.
If the Lakers give up on Howard it shows that the Lakers have failed and they have given up on the season. Their is just too much hubris within this organization to give up on a roster that really does have so much potential.
So even though it might seem like a good idea in the short run to trade Dwight, they are going to hold into him and hope that he can make in impact in LA in the future.
