I'm going to need Dwight to sit his super sperminator ass ALL THE WAY down.

Dwight Howard ‘Working Hard’ on Three-Point Shooting

Quote:

Per the AJC:


The Hawks center appeared on ESPN’s “The Jump” on Tuesday and said he has been working this offseason with his shooting coach in Atlanta to expand his game.



“I’ve been working on my 3’s, really trying to add some range to my game,” Howard said. “Which is going to be weird for people to see, I guess. They are used to seeing me in the paint battling. But in order for me to play longer, I have to expand my game. The game is not just back to the basket, get the ball in the post and go to work. It’s more stepping away from the basket, setting screens, popping, shooting 3’s and stuff like that. People haven’t seen me do that. It’s going to be an adjustment for me, but also the fans. I think it’s going to be fun.”



Howard took two 3-point shots last season and missed both. For his 13-year career, Howard is 5-of-56 from 3-point range.



“I think we have been left out to a certain extent,” Howard said of the traditional center. “The way the game has evolved, it’s really tough for traditional centers to get great playing time and be effective. So, we do have to change our game. … For us to stay in this league and be successful, we’ve got to be able to handle the basketball. We’ve got to be able to shoot the ball. Be able to play pick-and-roll against some of these guards. We have to be able to change our game or less we are going to be extinct.”

oh.my.god.

If he would've put his stupid ego aside and became more of a Ben Wallace/Rodman type, he'd be a superstar anyway.

The worst part is knowing he had signs of a solid midrange J in HS. Literally stopped improving it.

He used to hit face up jumpers off the glass in Orlando, not sure why he stopped.

He wouldn't be the first person to shoot threes well and suck at foul shots.

He's still absolutely clueless. I doubt he'll actually start launching threes during a game, as he'll be lucky to hit the rim. I think he announces this crap to stroke his ego, and get attention from the press.

Good call. His whole take is every bit about as much as the fan's perception as it is his part.

Tje new Manute Bol.

Maybe he could stretch the FT line, shooting from the 3pt line

How about learning a post move or two first? You know, some semblance of an offensive game beyond spoon fed dunks.
