Impressive but I'll reserve judgment until he does it in game.

I highly doubt that he would use it in a game. Though he needs to get that FT percent to 70.

Not bad. Hard to tell from a 5 minute youtube video how much he improved tho and when it's not even an ingame situation.

Would do alot for him if next year he showed up with a reliable jumper.

Jumpers!?!? That's the last thing this fool should be working on. Freakin Patrick Ewing.

Seriously, the guy needs to work on his footwork and become a dominant low post presence. He has the power, the athleticism, and the drive to dominate this league, yet he is working on a freakin jump shot.

If he even develops a somewhat okay jumper, where if you leave him open, he'll hit around 35% of them... atleast consistent as Okafor or Biedrins.... then watch out.

why go work on another dimension when you can work one one? Take it from shaq he didn't need jumpers to be dominant.

A skill that a center doesn't need! How about getting some better post moves first. That's like a guard-size player trying to learn inside post up moves.

Tim Duncan anyone? If he can shoot it will open up a lot of opportunities for his game..

Right. You think Shaq needed a jumper? Guy was overpowering everyone in the league.

Dwight is the best combination of physical gifts given to a center. He has power, he has athleticism, he has the IQ, he has the drive... why would he work on a jumper? The problem with developing a jumper is that you learn to fall in love with it.

What Dwight needs it's footwork. This foundation will let him dominate double and triple teams. He has the perfect team built around him. The Magic could be champions for the next several seasons. Unfortunately, I can't give them the nod over anyone yet because Dwight has several elements in his game that are still missing. They are essential for him being able to dominate this league completely. He can be the best player for a few years.

In this day and age, where this league is filled with some wimpy ass centers Dwight needs to take working on his footwork seriously.

i agree. he doesnt need to put too much emphasis on his jumpshot. he is a center. he is built for the paint and the low block. if he is shooting midrange to help his FT form then maybe it is for the better

If he needs to improve on his free throws then the Magic should hire a free throw shooting coach who will improve his mechanics. He doesn't need to be the next Patrick Ewing but rather the next Shaq.
