Default Dwight Howard Exposed? 1-6 FG!

Will Dwight continue to struggle against the Laker's big men? Bynum and Gasol did a fantastic job on containing him, but can they continue this? I think this is why Dwight needs to work on his post moves, as opposed to banging through people everytime because it just doesn't work on lengthy, athletic big men like Bynum or Gasol. Dwight makes it look easy against a 200 year old Big Z, but gets exposed by tall physical big men like perkins, shaq, yao, bynum,etc.

a healthy yao ming dominated LA during the playoffs before he got injured. howard also struggles against elite big men like yao ming. a healthy yao is just as dangerous.

Dwight is the best center in the NBA. His team mates weren't hitting their shots that's all.

If he had Kobe to dish to him, he would be even more dominant.

Yes. This is why I laugh, at people, who say Dwight > Shaq. Shaq was a beast, who could actually plow his way, at will, to the basket. The only way to stop Shaq was to Hack a Shaq.

Let me repeat this.. Prime Shaq would never go 1 for 6, from the field, in the NBA Finals.

So, to everyone saying Dwight > Shaq or Dwight will be better than Shaq, etc. It's not happening and never will happen.

This is to everyone who says Dwight > Shaq or Dwight will be better than Shaq. I like Dwight, but he isn't better than Shaq.

and he's not better than Yao Ming. Period.

A healthy Yao Ming >> Dwight. Not even worth arguing.

Yao didn't not dominate the Lakers. The Lakers destroy him. All they had to do was front him, and Yao was useless and turn into a turnover machine.

It was when Yao was sitting that all the runs were made my the Rockets.

Shaq was great, but it wasn't until a strong play like prime Ben Wallace to came around to stop him.

true that!
Ben Wallace played a great defensive series. He didnt STOP Shaq, but he made it very very tough for Shaq and therefore the entire Laker offense since the offense went through Shaq every time.

a washed up big ben actually did a good job on dwight in the ECF in limited minutes when ben was on the floor, unfortunately mike brown was to dumb to give big ben more minutes and to realize that a 200 year old Big Z couldn't guard dwight.
