I'd settle for 25-12 with 75% free throw shooting. I'll bet Pop will take advantage of his aggressiveness and his free throw shooting. Put up "smart" numbers..... not just numbers....

JGC wrote:If 'lack of chemistry' really is the reason that through 80 games we haven't been as good as expected, then, I think it's unfair to even think Dwight can dominate as the #1 guy.

If he does, great, if he doesn't, then wouldn't we say it's because of lack of chemistry and time to have Dwight as #1 option?


Am scratching head over what you just said. First wasn't a lot of the discontent early with Dwight and some Pau thrown in when he was still playing early on.....about Kobe not moving the ball and shooting too much? And a "cause" for good portion of lack of chemistry? So that part doesn't fly any more.

The second sentence though doesn't seem to make any sense. :man3:

Whether or not he's ready he needs to step up and fill in the hole left by Kobe. Pau can help definitely help out offensively but without our best scorer our best chance to win games will likely be through defense. Time to lead this team Dwight.

While the center who will be a free agent this summer has continued his noncommittal stance about whether he will sign with the Lakers or head elsewhere, two people close to him said they fully expect him to return. The people spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity out of respect for Howard's decision to wait until the summer to make his final choice

I don't see why he'd leave at this point. Most money he can get is here as has been said many times, LA has embraced the guy overall, and next season if Kobe misses a lot of time the team will be his to start the season, and if Kobe comes back needing a long time to get back to being Kobe, or if he never quite gets there, the team will start to be his for good. I guess it depends on how much he wants to win, if he feels we can do much better here next season, maybe based on moves we make, or if he feels other teams give him a better chance.

Great game from Dwight.

He lead vocally, he lead through his actions, he lead on the stats and he lead on the defensive end.

If that's what we have to look forward to, our future is a little brighter than I thought it was.

Look what he did for us today. Unbelievable. He promised, he delivered. Put the team on his back, and had a huge help from Blake and Jamison.

26/17/3 blocks, and hit clutch free throws.

Yeah, I think he can lead.

Made 2 clutch free throws late in game. Nicely done. Keep it up. He destroyed Duncan in 1 on 1 situations on offense, hope he can play like this going forward

Huge game, he muscled his way down low, he hit some big free throws, he was grabbing boards all over the place, and he played great defense. We needed him to step up and he did, please keep this up Dwight.

Great game. Looks like he's taking the challenge of carrying on without Kobe personally, which is a good thing.

Great effort against one of the best big men (on both sides of the floor) in the L.
His FT shooting still make me cringe but I guess he made a couple of big ones
