Yeah, and I actually fault AD on that one. Dwight didn't come at him, he was talking to him. AD is emotional, everyone knows that.

You can't do that on national TV if you're AD. He lost control. As a pro, you can't do that to your teammates on TV. I'm a big AD fan, but that's just not acceptable.

This (bleep) happens, but it's weird it's happening so early in the season. It's not like we're 5-15. Or lost to crap teams. We lost to two really good teams, with 2 all-stars/1 MVP level player each, who have played together in same system/group of players for a while.

Feel something is going on BTS that's not being disclosed. Perhaps the players don't like the new system with Fizdale. I wonder what Fizdale's exact role is. In NY he was a complete and utter disaster.

A lot of what he did may not show up on the stat sheet but Dwight was a difference maker in the 2nd and 4th quarters of the game last night.
He provided some much needed energy, rebounding and defense.

Defensively he had 2 blocks and one steal to go along with 2 rebounds in the 4th that set the tone for a Lakers rally.

Game STATS
1-1FG, 4-4FT, (6Pts), 8 RB, 2 Blk, 1 STL, 1 foul, +12.

Absolutely Pio....they were down 12 when Dwight came in...his defense, rebounding and rim intimidation was huge...not to mention the way he moves his feet when they switch the PNR....also watch all the screens he sets so players have open looks....Bron lives off them....I wish he would play more but I guess he has that energy in 8-9 minute bursts and then needs to rest.

yeah, i wonder why they don't play Dwight more. you're probably right. he wears himself out at his age and only knows one speed. PEDAL TO THE METAL!
and i think when he tires himself out, that's when he starts racking up fouls.

Dwight’s legs must be dead. I swear I saw two passes from WB that he should have had but he didn’t even jump as they lobbed over his head. Can he play back to backs?

As long as that 3pt shot was his one and only of the year for entertainment purposes then it’s all good.

But if this leads to more jumpshots from Howard it will turn into a fiasco. The last thing this team needs is Howard thinking he needs to be more of a scorer or “extending his range”. Defense and lobs, say it with me.

He's moving his feet well on defense, doesn't get burn on switches, at least the last 2 games, quick hands too

Where was this version of Dwight under D'Antoni? Can you imagine how good that team would have been if Dwight and Pau could shoot threes?

Don’t encourage him. Howard was always “too confident” with his offensive abilities. It was his downfall. Incredible physical talent that struggled to understand his strengths and weaknesses, even at his peak.

This version of Howard needs to focus on defense, rebounding and shots within 3ft. Less antics and certainly no offensive aspirations.

Dwight had no offense skills other than dunks, lobs, put-backs, and a baby hook but was able to average 22.9 PPG in 2010-2011 with high efficiency. Imagine if he had a post game and a jump shot. He could have been better than Shaq (which he already was by far on the defensive end). He'll be a first ballot HoFer but it was largely a wasted career. Dude should have been remembered on the same level as LeBron.

I'd like to see him MAKE two more this season. One at the buzzer when we blow OKC out next week and then in the last game when we win #18.

Better than Shaq. 😂

I will give Howard his due. At his peak, in certain areas of his game, he surpassed Shaq. Howard is an athletic freak that could dominate at times.

But his wasted career is on him. He was and can still be a knucklehead. More focused on himself, his goals, his antics or celebrity over being a great player.

On this team, less is better. Keep him focused on his role for one final season. Anything more will just open the door for all the drama he is known for and has undermined his reputation his entire career.

DeAndre has done solid. He was a +3 in his minutes. I don't get all the anger towards our bigs. They all do pretty well. Each has an advantage and disadvantage. Even AD. AD is not a perfect option at 5, either. I like the talent we have at the 5, a lot.

He's superior to DJ...But Vogel said he likes Dwight's energy off the bench and matching him up with the other teams 2nd string center.

Dwight has come a long way. Who would have ever thought he would be one of the guys willing to sacrifice. Proud of Dwight.
