LA is the hotbed of plastic surgery, or so the world thinks. Also full of "actors" or fakers. It is juvenile and immature, and doesn't bother me in the least. I'd compare it to LA fans calling the Kings "Queens" ala Shaq. Or calling Howard "coward"

Howard's mystic is more a product of a great team built around him in Orlando and a coach that knew how to coach.... He's an athlete that refuses to learn the game.

Absolutely great reactions to read, Legendary. My goodness, do the Rockets fans actually believe Howard's free-throw shooting will improve at this point? It's only been declining each and every year and it's unlikely to improve (as we've seen first-hand last year).

Of course, when we lose, it's "our fault", but likely when they win, it was "my play". Never will learn, Howard's FT shooting single-handedly cost them the game yet again.

Dwight Howard might still be the best center in the NBA, but thats by default. There aren't any top tier centers to challenge him. Bynum could have if he wasn't so injury prone.

Howard will never have the skills Shaq had around the basket. His value is defense and rebounding. His points are mostly putbacks or a good pass from penetration by a ball handler.

He's a liability late in close games because of his free throw shooting. How can he be a superstar if he's a liability in crunch time? He should not be the offensive focus. He doesn't have the skill set for that. Can he accept a role of defender/rebounder and defer to others on offense? Doubt it. I don't see Houston being a championship contender with their roster.

I'd say Hibbert is well on his way. Now that's a TRUE center.

I would rather have Hibbert over Howard. Imagine if Hibbert was on this team last year instead of Dwight. HUGE difference in the win column

Hibbert has no entitlement issues since he worked to improve his post game, is equally if not better at rim protecting, has a healthier outlook and can score on the low block with a smooth touch. Let's not forget he can hit at a decent clip at the charity stripe from what I've seen. Haven't heard of a Hack-A-Roy strategy.

Hibbert is not a great scorer, but he doesn't pretend to be one. On defense though.... besides being a beast in size, he's a really smart defender, does not tend to get in foul trouble, knows how to get in good defensive position (and keep verticallity), he tries to keep the possesion instead of sending the ball to the third row and knows that he doesn't actually have to go for the block ALWAYS.

He's been really impressive since the 2nd half of last season aprox.

I'd rather have Marc Gasol back.

The Gasol brothers at 4/5 would be fun.

Supposedly, Lin was supposed to switch onto Blake for that last Laker shot. Little did they know and if you watch the replay carefully....old wiley vet nash bear hugged Lin. Literally wrapped him up in a hug. If this was football, flags would have flown all over the place for offensive holding of the most egregious kind.

Thank god, NBA refs swallow their whistles for things like this come late game, final shot.

Ahhh that was a sneaky move. Still though, aren't there supposed to be switches in situations like that? And LOL at Howard yelling at anyone. If he hits 2 more FT's it ain't an issue. :man10:

Houston fans will tire of losing games due to Howard's inability to hit free throws. It's not like Howard is Shaq with his level of dominance that you can put up with bricking fts.

Agreed which is why he is a better alternative than Howard. In a pinch, Hibbert can score over any center with a better touch and is not a bull in a china shop like Howard is.

Lin had to have told Clown that he was held and not screened on Blake's shot. Supposedly that is what Clown was jawing to him about. But he kept on freaking jawing at him. For what at that point. And Harden. Watch it bros before someone maybe starts throwing some kind of card around. He certainly seems to be their whipping boy now. Yeah chemistry is already being affected. Anyone catch Dwight's dance routine with them in the huddle? He's like now at the stage where LeBron was in Cleveland. I don't know I think Lin always plays pretty well when I watch him.

If they run him off can't wait for the boos to rain down next time in China, and immediately incurred wrath in social and commercial areas from that long woo'd fan base. Howard is truly a bleep hole. To go at Lin that hard for something not his fault and when Howard's lack of skills (free throws that particular game) is what clearly lost the game for them.

OMG!! It's true?? I just went there and can't believe he is already starting the crap. But this is wonderful. Really it is if you hate him for how he acts and affects a team. The fans will see what we all saw and start getting into his BLEEP right away. PERFECT!! I have to visit that thread frequently now.

I hope someone in the NBA section in the Coward thread re-titles it for that page something about Dwight cancer starts early in Houston. And leave it there for a long time so we have a point of reference for the start of this enjoyment. If he is now this egotistical and clueless and skill less he will become one of the NBA's most hated players. This season. :sing: :sing: :sing:

Come on... Howard wants to have some fun. Lin who likes to penetrate and finish is not a good fit for Howard. He had more success in New York with Chandler who did not demand the ball. Lin to begin with is not that instinctive of a passer both in the interior or hitting open perimeter shooters. I noticed last night when he drove there was indecision on his part which screwed up the possessions.

What Howard could use is a pass first pointman who looks to give him his lobs or draw defenses for easy bounce passes. He had that before even if it was injured most of the time. Or just throw it down to him then sit back and watch his train wreck of a repertoire of post moves.

Dwight needs Jameer Nelson. He also needs a psychiatrist to understand that no one wants to trust him with the ball if he doesn't make improvements. You can't have everything without working for it. That's stupid. It doesn't make sense.

Rambis (a hard nosed Big Man) not having Clown around to deal with vs McHale (a hard nosed Big Man) now having him for his problem = SCOREBOARD and Karma finally for Lurch's clothesline play on him. :jam2: :jam2:

Have fun Kevin!! Let's see how YOU go about saying what he really needs to hear or …. having to kiss his butt because he'll be coming for your job next if he's still not happy after playing GM with the PG situation.
