Dwight's entire free throw routine is horrible. He bends his knees but then he straightens up before he releases, making the knee bend pointless. His elbow is bent out, ball in front of his face like we see, he holds it wrong, and on the release he just flicks the ball. There's no rotation on it because of that, and any follow through wrist motion that makes the shot look more decent than it is is purely for show and done after the ball is gone. Watch his free throws up close, or in slow motion, you will see all of that, it's a miracle he makes even 47% or whatever it is now.

Well blocking one eye would affect his depth perception. Which can explain why he always misses long.

Was curious. If Howard had hit 70% of his FTA (he would've been fouled less, I know), his PPG by season:

12.1
16.5
18.5
21.9
21.7
20.6
24.1
22.8
21.2
19.7 in his carer (+1.3 per game)

wasn't that the same coach that the lakers hired to improve shaq's free throw shooting for the 02-03 season?

and if i remember correctly, his FT percentage went up noticeably higher that season

"I believe I can get Dwight up to 95%..."

Vitti uttered three words that surely applies to how Bryant made two free throws on one leg, walked off the court on his own and processed his rehabilitation plan amid the pain, frustration and tears.

i don't understand how chuck hayes used to shoot like that. it's really not that hard to shoot a ball normal. making it is a different story, but i don't understand how people develop weird hitches in their shot like that

Oh my goodness, reminds me of Charles' swing. :man4: Does he still shoot like that, because I don't recall it from the times we played against him.

Dwight's gotta be our defensive leader... make everyone think D. That's the only way this team will get anywhere this season. We're horrible. Simply horrible.

Dwight is a great defender but cant do it all. He needs help. Tonight I think even Dwight played without energy and effort on D for 48 mins. Duhon Meeks & Hill were the only players who i thought gave it 100% on both ends for every second he was on the floor...it didnt always go their way but you can see the effort and energy and that was sad given theyre all bench role players.

Dwight needs to get others to follow his lead. MWP too needs to be that vet and get others to play better D and with more energy. Tonight though i just thought the starters came out with NO energy or effort on D thus the 8-0 run. We lost bc of a lack of that intensity and purpose

If D12's role is just a role player, this Lakers wont go too far in playoffs.

without Nash then there isnt any Dwight PnR...its just iso post ups (which are super inefficient for him) and putbacks for points. If he and others get more smooth offensive action then their D gets more energized. Everytime it was slow back to basket for dwight in which he threw it out for a 3. Not really gunna get anyone energized in the paint except the other team bc they're "stopping dwight howard, the best center in the nba, from scoring and forcing him to pass on 1v1 D"

if the offense is smoother, theres less turnovers...thus less fast break opportunities for the opponent, and theres more energy bc youre getting dunks and easy points on O.

there were two to three possessions where he just didnt box out his man so when he mistimes his jump Al jefferson or Millsapp or whoever got it...and then I think Kanter missed a FT, got it back and scored on Hill. Just ridiculous. I think he could've gotten 20 tonight...we let them get 42% of their misses back. Just not good

Jefferson is one of the worst PNR defender in the league ... I didn't see many PNR targeting him

And we wont until Nash is back. Duhon can run it well but idk why were not. Hes getting double digit assists now and drillings 3's from waaaay back consistently so i think we should but were not
