if that were to happen then it's just proof he was slacking and didn't want to be here. in which case i don't care how well he plays elsewhere, he can gtfo
No, it's proof that he wasn't healthy this year because he came from back surgery & had no off-season to get into shape & regain his strength.
agree with both points, a lil slacking a lot more injury base with his current play.
There has been an injury excuse for Dwight this season --while legitimate, check out his game logs. He had back surgery so I don't expect him to beast at the level he was in ORL. But how can you explain the drop after the 1st half of January?
He tore his labrum Jan 4 vs Clippers...but managed to put up 31/16/4 vs MIL 10 days later. You're telling me "because of injuries", he somehow got WORSE in the month of January? After the initial injury? If he can get 31/16/4 after back surgery and with a torn labrum, he can do it always.
The injury excuse is an excuse. The dude can assert himself, if he chooses to. That's not professional, stop giving him slack.
