If he shoots free throws like this in the playoffs, and Pau comes back and plays well, I think we have a real shot at meeting Miami in the Finals.

Guess we have Battie to thank for his performance tonight

Dave McMenamin ‏@mcten
Dwight said former teammate Tony Battie sent him a lengthy text message before the game: "It kind of gave me a little inspiration"

Kevin Ding
Kobe on what Dwight's 25 free throws tonight in Orlando will do for him: "It will do wonders for him. The big ...
part was stepping to the free-throw line in this type of situation and that type of environment. For him to be able to make those here, he can make those anywhere."

Kobe also said: "Psychologically, it was big for him to come into this environment and play as well as he did. I think it is a big boost for his confidence."

I know it was just tip-off, but I could see his basketball instincts much improved when they had the opening jump ball. You could see a much better lift-off from Howard even when he was hesitated first.

Hopefully this helps him turn a corner on his free throws a little bit. Even if he just shoots 60% going forward, it'd be a Godsend.

If he cares as much about playoff games as he does showing up his old team, we're in for a fun ride. No team has an answer for Dwight when he plays like this.

what makes you say that? He usually showed up for the playoffs, it was Bos that usually made him mediocre because of Porkins and they didn't have to double him.

^^ For real!!

He truly responded to the emotion in a perfect way. He channeled his energy and just dominated out there. That was so heartening to see. And his teammates (current ones) had his back all the way. Everyone was feeding him the ball in the right spots and helping him to kick butt on the Magic. Our chemistry is coming together.

I think all he meant was IF Dwight plays close to this in the playoffs we will be very good, not that he doesn't care about the playoffs or hasn't in the past.

As for the blowing kisses to the crowd, trash talking big baby, messing with fans in the crowd, I loved it, very Kobe-like stuff, showed a level of confidence I can't remember seeing from him before. I like when guys on our team play with some cockiness and passion, we don't get to see it enough. Dwight can be a beast and he should not hold back in being that on the court, talk some trash, dunk on fools, tell guys they can't stop you.

hopefully with his play since ASB people will stop confusing him with Zeller and thinking Varajao/Chandler are better options :freak2:

During the game:

@Mike_Bresnahan

Dwight now getting into it with fans seated behind basket near Lakers' bench. He's smiling as they boo him and booing along with them.


@Mike_Bresnahan

Courtside Magic fans try to antagonize Dwight: "You can't win without Kobe!" Dwight's response: "That's true."


:man10:

And who says Kobe can't have some fun too with Dwight?

@Mike_Bresnahan

Kobe with a wide grin, he and Dwight joking about that wide open jumper after Dwight's screen.

As I've been saying, a smiling, joking, happy Dwight is a beat Dwight. Just because it's not Kobe's DNA doesn't mean it's can't be D12's.

More than anything, it seems as though he's just being himself, buying in, and enjoying the ride. I don't know if it's health, timing, Kobe's effort to get Dwight going, the death of Dr. Buss, or a combo of all 4, but he is ballin.

Dwight just playing basketball now and not worrying about what everyone thinks. It does help that he's getting healthier with each game though.

Dwight is starting to slowly turn into the player we all expected him to be, and the league is starting to notice just what a Kobe/Dwight duo can do...this is beginning to get very fun fellas :man9:

Anybody notice he's not getting stripped anymore, hes not fumbling passes away and now catching them in traffic. More importantly you can see him and Kobe on the same page they're finding each other, before Kobe would throw passes and it would bounce off Dwight's back as he'd be unaware of the pass. More time playing together has made them comfortable and in synch. Good signs

Looks like he's about to turn the corner mentally ... I won't lie I thought he was going to have a bad game ..

He's obviously healthier which is great news for the end of the season and especially next season
