Default Why doesn't Dwight Howard have basic fundamentals?

We all know that he is a tenth of a point BELOW the league average in scoring from post up opportunities, but here are some other basic things D12 can't do at a basic level:

Set screens
Roll off a pick
hit a 10 foot jumpshot
shoot freethrows
Keep the ball above his head
Pass out of a double team
Not goaltend
Catch a bounce pass

How did he get so far in organized basketball without having learned these basic skills from any of the many coaches he has had in his life? How was this allowed to happen?

And he was so athletic he was still a decent player even without any basic skills.

But now his athleticism is gone, he is basically Robert Sacre levels.
