The points will come. He can score 20 ppg without too much trouble.


He's changing his free throw form and practicing them too....

Talk is just that....

His play so far looks limited by his mobility.... or lack thereof.... However even when he's recovered it won't be up to him if the defense improves. Defense is a team effort and until the team begins to rotate behind him and block out we will have the same issues regardless of who is playing center.... he can't do it all....

The biggest things Dwight can do right now is 1.) work on his freethrows, we saw them in preseason/1st couple games. He CAN hit them when he really focuses on it. What I saw from him early in the season tells me he's going to be a 70+% FT shooter at some point. If he could figure that out now, he'd be impossible to stop even at 80%. & 2.) Hold the ball above your head until you know what to do with it. Bynum was great at this. Gasol has been great at it for stretches. Dwight just has no finesse to his game at all. I think that can change, I wish he would work with KAJ & Pau.

Seriously, man, work on your FT's. Shoot AT LEAST 50%. MAKE HALF OF THEM. Is that too much to ask for? :man2:

Seems like his poor free throw shooting permeates throughout the entire team. Sometimes it feels like it almost negates anything positive he brings to the team.

I know that's silly and not true, but sometimes it just feels that way. It's just embarrassing.

Dwight, make and practice your free throw, 40% is just not acceptable and won't cut it.

This team is not nearly good enough to overcome Hack a Dwight ... we'll lose games in the playoffs because of it

When a primary scorer shoots that bad it takes a lot of other players to cover for that..... No one else can miss a free throw when he's shooting in the high 40's.... His % is progressively getting worse as he career progresses....

Tonight his rebounding on free throws was the difference IMO... 3 balls go back to Indy because he didn't block out Hibbert. That's just about the easiest thing to do if you go about it fundamentally. So are free throws for that matter.....

50% is one thing, but 25% out of 12 is terrible embarrassing all of the above for an NBA player.

I think, we do whatever it takes to placate and get dwight to stay at this point. We are not winning this year, but we have to do whatever it takes to play for dwight this year.

I thought hiring PJ was going to be the placating act. But, jimmy chose to roll the dice again. If D12 leaves and you want a reason, look at jimmy.

^^ Seriously. 25% tonight. :disagree: He might be the worst free thrower I've ever seen. He seriously makes Shaq look good at the line. No exaggeration. That's bad.
