He's being asked to challenge every shot, that's our defensive strategy. It's the team's responsibility to help the helper. If and when he goes for the block, someone somewhere needs to give him help. It's that simple.
True. I understand people are pissed we lost and the free throws were horrific but really "Tyson Chandler"? The Lakers looked tired last night their rotations were off and they never recovered. Dwight was rotating and his man was left unchecked. Blaiming him for that is really just close-minded viewing of the game.
What D12 should be killed for today is 2 things. First, his energy and effort in the 2nd and start of the third was crap which was tipped off by the play where the ball went out of bounds but a Denver player ran from behind Dwight and saved it. Dwight was busy complaining. The second is the free throws. His mechanics look a million times better but he hit the back edge of the rim every single time he shot. He makes half his free throws and we have a different game. Now I know Coach D has said that Dwight is still getting winded out there so the B2B was a huge thing for him but during the times he was on the floor he needs energy.
