I think Dwight does like the Lakers and wants to be here but just not with coach D'Antoni

well thats what mitch said yesterday Quote: Dwight deserves to have a statue and his jersey hanging in rafters. oh what a coincidence D12 played his best game as a Laker? trust me he knew everything with his Lakers credibility was riding on this game and he played like it. He would have been done here forever if he came with that selfish crap tonight and the way he played proved it.

no he has more to prove but if he came out tonight on this night for Dr. Buss he would have never been accepted as a true Laker that was the point.

Ah I see, that's actually a good point I was just messing around with my post. I do agree that had he come out tonight with no effort and a bad attitude on a night for Dr Buss against the Celtics, Laker fans would have been pissed, maybe even insulted.

Mitch has been saying that from day one. It's been in their Backstage Lakers commercials for weeks.

I know what your point was, I'm just giving you a hard time. No ONE game defines a person or player. The emphasis on yesterday's game was misplaced.

Dwight said something along the lines of "It feels great to finally know the feeling of what it's like to beat the Celtics here at home"

I suppose he felt the rivalry last night & gave his best performance of the season

This. Do any of the Dwight huggers think we dont WANT to love him? Dude is the most talented center in the league.

The cardinal rule of playing in LA is that you have to play hard every night. Any backlash from fans that Dwight is feeling is based on a perceived lack of effort/drive/intensity.

If he plays with all those things then uh, yeah. We'll love him a lot. :freak2:

Not sure about the cape, that was something he did long before the Lakers.

It was good to see the effort last night. Especially the part about trying to make the pick and roll work with Nash. I never understood his previous lack of effort here as it was a vital part of Orlando's offense and he was good at it. Maybe not Amar'e good, but decent enough and I never saw a good reason why he couldn't duplicate some of that success if he was working with one of the best ever pick and roll PG's.

But no, he was stuck thinking he wanted to be strictly a post guy. Well I hope he discovered that effective playing in the post takes a lot more effort than just showing up. MDA says "Ball Finds Energy" and that applies to post players as much as it does to anyone else. It takes work to get good position to receive a pass and be able to do something from there. Perhaps his back is preventing him from being as effective down there as he could be. But that could be a blessing, it's forcing him to show energy in order to get the ball thrown into him.

Ball finds energy: keep being energetic at both ends, defend the rim and do the pick and roll as well as the post ... and he'll get that jersey on the wall and the statue in front of Staples.
I shall be telling this with a sigh

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

So does the title mean he's a true Laker now, or does it mean he just prevented himself from NOT being a true Laker? :man11:

i don't know man look at scottie pippen. analyst try to define him by 1 play in 1 game when he refused to go in because phil designed last shot for kukoc. 1 game can define how people think of you not maybe for himself but
once people get a strong point of view about you even for 1 thing it can dominate everything thats thought about you.

Shouldn't this be in the Dwight Howard Discussion thread? I find myself going back & forth between Dwight threads :man11:

You clearly don't understand the magnitude of that game. 25 years from now, when people ponder Howard's place in Laker lore, they'll point to this Laker / Celtics game as THE point in time when Howard earned his purple and gold. This thread is the Holy Grail! To merge would be an error of catastrophic proportions unknown to the basketball gods (Naismith, Wooden, Jackson, Jordan, Kareem... to name a few).
