Re: Phil Jackson thoughts on Dwight Howard & Lakers
There's no doubt about it, if Kobe wasn't part of the team Phil wouldn't be back for just Nash & Howard. That's not a contender. Phil will only coach a true contender at this point. I can't imagine he'd want to coach a team that was just going to lose in the first round.
Sure if there's less superstars on a team, their stats go up. There's going to be a dip in stats when people team up like that. I think it's more about how they're being used than what the numbers look like though. One good example is I don't like how and when Dwight gets the ball a lot of times. I like what Phil mentioned in that article on how else Dwight could be used.
