It's been nearly a month since Dwight Howard was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. From that day on, no one has been able to wipe the smile off of Howard's face. Maybe that's because he was finally able to rid himself of the tumultuous relationship he had with the Orlando Magic organization.

Even though D12 did get what he wanted all along, the center's image and character greatly suffered in the process.

Check it out below.
