No idea why I thought to post it, probably because I have no idea why Ding felt the need to say it, so odd. :man10:

Well, maybe some fart humor will lighten all the gloom and doom mood around here and in the locker room. Lowest common denominator humor? Sure, why not?

Dwight is famous for his locker room farts. That is well known.

Blown out and embarrassed by their rivals last night, Dwight was a total no-show against a small front court and yet he is still clowning around and acting like the team jester. I am sure Kobe and Nash are laughing hyterically.

Oh man seriously? That was funny and you know it, it's not clowning around or not taking your job seriously to let out gas. What's he supposed to do, hold it in to show he's a competitor? Of all the ridiculous things to get mad at Dwight over, wow.

Farting Dwight is an indicator of a content Dwight apparently. :man10:

Good post.

You make some interesting points that make a lot of sense. I hadn't really looked at it in that way (always assuming he'd get max dollars no matter what), but I suppose if his injury has that kind of catastrophic potential, then this line of thinking would be quite feasible. Kinda sickening, but feasible.

Latest reports say, "Dwight's farts are now complaining about not being supported by the team"
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

"Hopefully they'll start supporting me the way they need to," Howard said. "Until then, I'm going to continue to do whatever I can to help our team win."

I think this is a very good post. It's very possible this is what he and his agent are thinking right now.

As an attorney, that would be what I would be advising him. don't risk it!! The shoulder injury is not to serious of a concern, but the back certainly is, since without his athleticism he would be nothing. The way this league overpays for big men makes his risk a low one, but it is there. Look at Bynum, I have said for months that he should take the extension and not risk injury and losing his status as a max player. that was on the assumption that he would play this year. he may just ride it out now and hope that Philly or somebody else still pays him. But on Dwight, listening to him talk, it reaks of spinning from the advice his camp is giving him about protecting his future. He is playing conservatively -- and it is not just about his back.

Anyway, be careful not to say too many nice things to me. Puff may not like you anymore. :man10:

I really liked Bynum, but its not like we'd be doing better with him now considering he hasn't played a game this season.

Good game. Better effort, 12/11/3 blocks. Great D late in the game... I'll take it.

He played really well tonight. A lot of energy and some really solid challenges defensively. Offensively we looked for him a lot.

He showed up tonight on defense, rebounds, had a really great scoring stretch where they fed him the ball, but I have just lost faith in this guy at the moment. I want to get excited that he'll do it next game, that he'll keep doing it, that he will be the guy we want and stick around for the future. Then he comes out the next game and lays an egg effort wise, acts like he doesn't even want to play, I can't give the guy my full support and get back to rooting for him like I want to until I see this consistently, he makes it really hard to do. He had a good game, but when I have to ask what Dwight will we get Sunday it bums me out.
