I don't get it either, especially since guys move teams all the time and some of those guys he just dissed could end up here at some point. Also, if he can make 82% free throws in practice but only 50% in real games, wow. You can't even do 60% in a game?

Probably not and I could be full of it. I'm just trying to stay even keel until I see the actual video itself.

No no no, you're doing it all wrong! You're suppose to criticize Howard for saying this!

No, no you're supposed to jump to Dwight's defense no matter what he says!

Nobody criticized Dwight, a few people only wondered out loud why he would say that. It's fine if he thinks it, it's actually kinda true, but why say it. Either way it's not a huge deal though, in the end I doubt anyone here really cares. As far as Kobe goes though, it's one thing to say Smush Parker and Brian Cook suck (or Atkins, or quite a few others from those teams), it's a different thing to say you were on a team "full of" players nobody wanted. Kobe never hated on Odom, or even Luke Walton who he always has spoken highly of. Should Kobe say it, no he probably shouldn't either, but that's Kobe these days, filter is off.

He looks slow and mediocre out there. No all-star at the moment.

I have faith that he'll be much better next season.

Top 5 NBA player, please, there are 2 sides to the court, his defense and boards are good, but his offense is Kwame Brown bad far too often.

He just isn't the same game-changing presence he was in Orlando, unfortunately.

Well not a good game offensively, but did make a difference defensively. His post game needs even more work now that his athleticism is gone. He didn't get the ball much, this offense just isn't good it doesn't make him a threat either in the post or to kick the ball out.

Interesting. I'm glad Phil and Dwight have an ongoing relationship. Dwight will do nothing but benefit from Phil's wisdom in life & basketball.

Rough game for Dwight. Couldn't get anything going offensively. He still was solid on the glass and prevented the likes of Jackson from getting to the rim at will when he was in. I will say that foul trouble didn't help his cause, most of them were complete and utter BS, especially his 6th. He got tick tack fouls called against him but Kobe would get mauled on the other end of the court and there would be no such whistle. I understand home cooking, but come on now.

He is hurt too often, I am tired of dishing out big contrracts for guys who can't give you a good, full season. He has only played more than 70 games in 2 of his 5 seasons.

I'm personally putting this loss to OKC on Dwight tonight. Aside from the obvious... same amount of points as fouls... when we brought it down to 5 points (without any contribution from him), over the next few possessions he stood there with opportunities for offensive rebounds and didn't make any. One defensive miss nearly rebounded into his face and he fortunately grabbed that one, but for that entire final 4 minutes, he did not come with any energy, had horrible position and was simply out hustled for every ball. And this is the person we are going to build our future around?!?
