Dwight Howard new shot: running hook

The Orlando Sentinel (David Whitley) writes: We all remember the moment we fell in love. For Dwight Howard, it came in Dallas. Stan Van Gundy was yelling sweet nothings in his ear. “That’s a great shot!” Ladies, gentlemen and anyone else who’s been waiting for Howard to find a steady, meet the running hook. Anybody got a spare pair of goggles? “Somebody said I should call myself Kareem Abdul-Dwight,” Howard said. His new favorite shot doesn’t have the majestic trajectory of Jabbar’s sky hook. That was perhaps the most unstoppable shot in basketball history… What makes it so good is Howard is a natural left-hander, so he can shoot it with either hand. His extension makes it unblockable.
