Fact or fiction: Dwight Howard is a good offensive player
 
The stats say that Dwight Howard is a dominant high percentage scorer.

The eye test says Dwight Howard is pretty useless offensively other than for put backs and alley oops and only does two post moves.

What do you think about Dwight?

He's pretty good if used right but he's somewhat dependent on a certain style of play that he isn't getting at the moment. As far as offensive talent goes I'd say he's the 4th best player on the team.

Ideally that should not matter because he was brought in to play defense and command the defense and once he does that he will be the best player on the team.

I think you're a spoiled Laker fan lashing out at the wrong person.

You make it sound like put backs and alley oops require no skill. If it were that easy, every big man in the NBA would be doing it. He's not super polished and doesn't have an array of moves, but he's good offensively. You have to put him in the right system. Also, I wouldn't judge this showing so far being that he just came back from having back surgery.

Clearly fiction.

What Kobe has done this year, carrying such an awful supporting cast to a 9-10 start, is remarkable.

he's lucky. he shotputs shots into the basket out of his ass. he's still a force down low tho, just not a skilled force. and with hack a dwight, he's become a liability at times. it seems like he's not fully back and healthy but he should not be a first option for them.

Who wouldn't want a player who could score 20 ppg on put backs and alley oops?

He's an efficient scorer. When you have that, does it really matter if your offense is aesthetically pleasant or not?

It does if you can't create for yourself consistently in iso coverage, and are paid like a player who can.
