D12 Discussion: Dwightmare over! (1139)

Re: Dwight Howard Discussion (Hack-a-Dwight)

Howard's pathetic. EVERYONE in Houston was laughing at this guy, costing his team the game because he's unable to perform one of the simplest tasks in the basketball court.
I don't get how he gets to be a prima donna high maintenance star, he can't even stay on the game late because he's such a liability. I don't want to see anymore articles or posts about how important it is to please this guy so he doesn't walk... Stop. He doesn't deserve it. His FT shooting has cost us some games already, I don't want to see any "what I fear most about our record is Howard leaving" comments, not when he's one of the main culprits (Dallas, Orlando, Houston off the top of my head)

The guy is really getting on my nerves. Just seems unprofessional to keep bricking FTs at this rate.
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.

I don't think this guy really cares about his free throws. If he did, he'd put some effort into working on them. It doesn't appear (or even sound like, considering the reports that he shoots the most 3's of anyone in practice) he does.

Pretty embarrassing for Dwight I'd say. Professional athlete yet you are detriment to your team down the stretch because you can't hit 50% of your fts.

Nobody wants Bynum. We want Dwight to make his free throws.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

if u are team that can't get stops then take d12 out when hacking starts but if u can get stops during hack time hacking doesn't matter and it backfires to other team like it did in Nets game

^ Nah; because if Dwight can't shoot 50%, then no team in the league plays D well enough to hold off the opposition. Every team is surrendering at least .99 points per possession. Check the math.

He was a consistent 60% free-throw shooter until 2011. That would be good enough for him. But 45% is unadmissible.

By the way recovering from a back injury operation for months, I wonder if could have focused in throwing free throws...

He struggled early but he made 4 out of the last 6 FTs. Hes gotta do a better job on the glass as well

The whole team right now gets demorazlied when he misses FTs in the 4th, this is a veteran team they should display more mental strength then they have the last 2 games. Regroup and go at it again tomorrow

Lol anyone watching post game? Dwight is saying his missed free throws had "nothing" to do with them losing the game... :freak2:
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

What's the point of getting Howard if we only use him on defense while Kobe chucks on offense?

Here is goes, it all started with Kobe blasting Pau and his teammates, now the first shot have been fired. Now it's Dwight time to blame other.

If it's fair to blame a loss on one key factor, it's Dwight's shooting in the Hack-a-Dwight situation. And it's not even close.

Exactly what I said in another thread. I thought the whole purpose of Dwight was to take advantage of an interior presence both on offense and defense.

If we don't want him involved at all on the offensive end that's fine, I guess he's a huge expiring contract.

Howard consumes the second most possessions per 36 minutes on the team. Second only to Kobe. You make it sound like he never touches the ball.

Sorry Dwight, Kobe was a chucker tonight, but your free throws doomed us.
