What difference does it really make as long as you bring it on every night, which Howard does? Everyone has different personalities. Duncan is the most quitest guy around yet he's the greatest PF ever. He let his play do the talking. Dwight likes to goof around but he brings it. So who cares?
because at times it seems like dwight simply doesn't care about winning
down by 10, and he's out there laughing. dwight and kobe are not the same breed. kobe will do anything possible to win, when was the last time we were down and you saw kobe smiling and laughing? dwight is new school, kobe is old school.
would dwight ever do this?
Who gives a sh*t? Oh, so you don't like his demeanor once in a while so you don't want him on your team? Who really cares if he's differnt from Kobe? Kobe is Kobe and Dwight is Dwight. As long as Dwight brings it every night, i could care less. People are getting way too caught up with his mental make up.
Also let me add that the Magic weren't THAT far away from beating the Lakers in 2009. OK, they were but still, what happens if Lee makes that gimme lay up in game 2? And if we don't come back in game 3 down 12 points in the 2nd half? We are down 3-1. I know it's all bullsh*t hypotheticals here but Dwight had less to work with than Kobe. If Dwight wins a title, do you view him differently? Is Dwight a different person to you if he has a ring even though in reality, he's still the same guy?
