Default Dwight's lack of post moves

Quote:
TK: Speaking of working hard, you've added a hook shot and some countermoves down low this year. How do you go about adding moves and just getting better down in the post?

DH: I think people have the misconception that you have to have a lot of moves in the post. For a player like myself, it's just one move and a counter on both blocks. I don't have a lot of time to do a lot of moves because of the double teams and how people play me. So the main thing is just finishing in the paint, and playing out of the double team. I've been doing the same thing for a couple years now, and it's just understanding double teams and playing out of them.

Default Re: Dwight's lack of post moves

Anyone who says Dwight doesn't have post moves now simply hasn't been watching the guy this season. I think it was against the Lakers where he just exploded with a great array of post moves, and he really hasn't looked back since. He's going well with that little baby hook and his jumpers getting better on the block.

I'm not a fan of Howard at all, but to say he has no post moves, or isn't a good post player now, is simply wrong.

I agree with Dwight, as long as he's able to get right next to the rim he doesn't need a whole bag of moves.

Game 1 vs Charlotte. 5pts 7rbs 9blocks, sure you can bold the 9 blocks if you like.

If Dwight actually worked on his offense he would actually come close to living up to the Superman moniker he so wants. But hey he said he doesnt need but 1 post moves and a couple counters. Like people with more than 1 post moves didnt draw double teams.

Default Re: Dwight's lack of post moves

I've seen Dwight improve with his post moves a little bit this season. However, all his "post moves" were from like 6 ft. and in. He is too easy to defend at this point in his career. If he doesn't get deep position he can't score with his back to the basket and his face-up game is weak.

Correct. I have been watching him ever since he came in the league and this year is the first time I've seen any evidence of solid post moves. Not mechanical ones where he decides what he's going to do before he gets the ball. Not off-balance half-assed hooks or weak ass flippers in the paint. I'm talking about solid pivots, going up strong and decisive with half-hooks, that made his scoring seem almost automatic. But I didn't see the playofff game on Saturday, so I'll pay careful attention to the next one to see if Howard didn't fall back on bad habits.

Dwight didn't get doubled too much in that game. He simply got into foul trouble early (maybe he was going for the blocks record? I don't know) and wasn't really utilised on offence. He didn't do himself any favours when he got fouled a lot, and missed all his free throws, but it wasn't lack of post moves.

It was Jameer's chucking that got them the big lead, and Jameer's chucking that nearly cost them their lead, he gave Dwight very few chances to score.

I appreciate it even more when he scores 5 points and 9 blocks, like Sunday.

A Dwight that isn't scoring is usually a bad sign for the other team, because he tends to over-compensate on defense.

Now a Vince that isn't scoring is something else lol.

The Magic would have beaten the Lakers if Howard had a better low post game last year.

Yeah, he also knocked out 40 points in the deciding game of the ECF last year and averages around 20PPG, but go ahead and point out the 5 point game if it makes your d*ck hard.
