I think I'm the only one that hates Dwight. I'll support him since he's a Laker but I'll never like him.

Why would you hate him? Did he do something to you and your family?

For the same reasons I hate LeBron. At least I'm being consistent *shrugs*

But I know for sure I'll be rooting for him. That's my Center! :man6:

For demanding a trade? For deserting the team that drafted him?

Other than those reasons, Dwight is a much more likable guy than Lebron is.

No, I understand, but isn't "hate"... I don't know... a strong word for disliking someone?

I don't think I have ever hated anyone in my life.

I don't like Bron, but I definitely don't hate the guy. I don't even know him.

You're right. Hate is too strong of a word. I dislike Dwight.

But I really do hate LeBron. I think he's arrogant, immature, and what he did during the Decision was appalling.

Maybe until Dwight is 100% we should run more plays for Pau on the inside, its a good way to keep him focused among The Big 4, hes unselfish but hes also the most passive of the 4, I wouldn't want him to get lost in the shuffle.

Article from Wojo ...

Dwight Howard aiming to play in Lakers' opener

Five months after back surgery, All-Star center Dwight Howard has targeted his Los Angeles Lakers debut for opening night of the 2012-13 season, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Howard is determined to play against the Dallas Mavericks on Oct. 30 at Staples Center, and his progress in recent weeks has strengthened the possibility, sources said.

Howard has privately indicated his back has returned to 85 percent strength, sources said. He had surgery for a herniated disc in April and still needs doctor's clearance to engage in full training-camp activities with the Lakers. Los Angeles opens its training camp Tuesday.

The Lakers have been reluctant to make public a timetable on Howard's return, and have maintained a cautious approach to protect his long-term health.

Howard has been working with Lakers coaches and trainers at the team's practice facility, and has shown an increased range of motion, but has yet to engage in five-on-five or significant contact situations.

[Also: Rasheed Wallace returning to NBA]

The Lakers' coaching staff is implementing a hybrid of the Princeton offense and has shown Howard how the system will open up fresh avenues of scoring possibilities for him.

Howard, 26, underwent surgery in April, and missed the final weeks of the season and the playoffs for the Orlando Magic. After Howard insisted he wouldn't re-sign a long-term contract, Orlando traded him to Los Angeles as part of a four-team deal in August.

I have always felt he won't miss too much time. He had a 6 month time table and that would be in time for the opener....

so I never thought he is out for extended period of time during the season. Nontheless its good that its starting to get more concrete.

The fact that he won't miss any time is great. I'm wondering ifthe coaching staff might limit his minutes to kine of ease him back into game shape?...

That would be my guess. Not because they are scared he will hurt himself again, but from a conditioning standpoint it makes perfect sense

Yep , this is completely doable considering the early heavy home schedule ...

The minutes maganement of our BIG 4 has to be solid from the get go ... this is the key of our season imo ... that's why rotations have to be set as early as possible and not to be changed every other game ..

Yep. Much as it frustrated the bleep out of us with some of the young players we really wanted to see get more playing time....once Phil had his rotation set he stuck with it all damn season barring injuries. And shortened it up for the playoffs. Zen Master....knew that was a good thing. Potato Head seems to fly by the seat of his pants week to week...even game to game. :nono2:

I seriously do not think, even Lakers fans, that anyone knows how good this team is going to be. The only thing that would derail this team is injuries. If there are no major injuries to the big 4, this team is going to roll over everyone and make them look like college teams.

I agree & I don't think all our Big 4 will get injured We'll always have at Least 2 available

This is what Phil would do.. Get Pau as confident as he can until Dwight is ready to go 100%.

get pau involved in the offense early in the season. not only do you have you account for each players skills but also their personalities. Pau will mentally check out if he's not involved...he's already super passive so you have to get him involved early. I don't think Dwight will mind as hell still need to get his conditioning. Also I think it'll be good for Pau as chances are late in close games we'd go inside to Pau instead of Dwight just bc of the fouling issue. it'll be good for Pau to find his spot in this offense instead of trying to find it all season.

we have a big 4 and we have to use them all. no one can be left out standing around...everyone needs to be involved. that's key I think.
