Poll: With Howard Trade, Who Is The NBA Favorite?

Everything always seems to just work out for the Lakers, doesn't it?  Landing Dwight Howard gives them a dreamworthy starting five that will undoubtedly cause many pundits to pick them as the favorite to win the upcoming season's NBA title.  But the West was loaded before they landed Howard and is now even more so with the Nuggets adding Andre Iguodala in the same deal.  No one is going to hand the Lakers the conference title, and the last time I checked the Miami Heat looked pretty incredible in the NBA Finals. 

Asked for his thoughts on the Howard deal after the United States defeated Argentina in the Olympic semifinal, LeBron James didn't take the bait, predictably stating, "I don't have a thought.  My mindset is now on Spain" (via Sen Deveney on Twitter).  Kevin Durant gave a more entertaining quote, simply responding, "I really don't care" (via Jeff Zillgitt on Twitter).  While his intentions are unknown, it doesn't make it any less entertaining – especially considering the elongated circumstances of Howard's trade. 

So what do you think?  With Howard in purple and gold, who is the favorite to win the NBA title?  Feel free to make your case in the comments section.

    It has to be the Heat still (although I hate to admit it) only because they have a running start. These Lakers have never played a game together. They could mesh and win it this year, but at this point in time I don’t think you can call them the favorites just yet.

      It’s much easier to mesh when Nash is running the show.

        I think he makes it all the more likely they will mesh. I’m just saying…as of today, I think it still has to be the Heat…unfortunately.
