I'll give credit where credit is due. Dwight Howard didn't drag this "Dwight Howard Sweepstakes" along like a certain superstar once did. 

During this 2013 offseason, free agency basically surfaced around one particular name. It wasn't dramatized like the "Lebron James Rush" in 2010. Yet, still it drew a hand full of teams who essentially put their offseason on hold.

Howard finally picked the Houston Rockets, but that's not the only party who won with this pick. Let's dissect this carefully and see who really won or lost in all of this hoopla.
