Dwight Howard

Postby Uncle rob » Wed Dec 05, 2012 12:02 pm

He is shooting 47% but does not believe that is free throw shooting is causing the Lakers to lose. Here's a clue for you Dwight: The team that Scores more points wins. How can these guys get paid that much and suck at such a basic part of the game?

I'll say it again. I never thought the day would come that acquiring Steve Nash could cost a team a title. It's come to that, appeasing Nash with the hiring of Mike D'Antoni.

Passing on Phil Jackson, who would have done wonders for Howard, was the worst decision LA could have made.

That was an ego trip by somebody. Either Jackson asked for the world, or the management wants to prove they don't need him. Either way they screwed eachother.

LA screwed themselves. Jackson has no problem staying retired.

I hate the Lakers and am loving watching them fail, but until Nash is back you can't really judge how well the hiring is going to work. But in general when Kobe takes all the shots, he puts up big numbers and the team loses. It's been like that for years. Kobe took 31 shots, Howard took 9. that's a formula for a close loss.

Well folks with larger hands do have an issue with free throws.

That said he is foolish to say it did not have an effect and not to say he is going to work hard to improve.
