Default Dwight howard

is taking 9 shots a game last year he took 12 a game hedo took 13 shots a game last year and vince takes 16 shots a game this year so thats negative 3 shots for dwight howard this year compared to last year and vince takes 3 more shots then hedo did last year.Also another fun fact dwight is not averaging 20 and 10 this year.This was all insane to me when i heard it on nba tv today im just curious what orlando fans have to say about this who watch most of their games?

Default Re: Dwight howard

I believe Bill Simmons contract article , pretty much summed up what Howard is ...

2. Dwight Howard
Fact: Howard has played every game this season.



Fact: A whopping 75 players have attempted more field goals than he has, including Jason Thompson, John Salmons, Danilo Gallinari, Luis Scola, Carl Landry, Raymond Felton, Andrew Bynum, Jamal Crawford and Kenyon Martin.



Fact: He's 109th in the league in field goal attempts per game, tied with Ryan Gomes at 9.6. Ryan Gomes!



Fact: Teammates Vince Carter (14.9), Rashard Lewis (11.9) and Jameer Nelson (10.3) all average more field goals attempts than he does.



Fact: He leads the league in free throw attempts (10.4 per game), so realistically, that means Howard is getting about 14-15 scoring touches per game. Not even four a quarter.




My take: He's too nice of a guy. It's both the best and worst thing about him. If you ever played basketball, you know there's one rule with big guys: Make sure they touch the ball enough. If they don't get enough touches, they get cranky. They stop running the floor. They stop setting good picks. They stop crashing the boards. Big guys are like women -- they need affection, they need to be stroked every so often, and if you ignore them, they start to resent you.



In Howard's case, nobody in Orlando has to worry about keeping him happy. He's always happy! He's a good soldier. In a roundabout way, he's avoiding the responsibility of carrying an offense every night. This is easier. He gets to run around, jump over guys, ram some dunks home, block some shots, flex his muscles, smile to the crowd and concentrate on his strengths. Of course, he will never, ever, ever get better this way, and if you look closely at his stats these past three years, he is what he is: 18-19 points, 13-14 rebounds, 3 blocks, 60 percent shooting. Alpha dog pedigree, sidekick mindset. Too bad.
