We are two months into the season almost. I think at this point his conditioning, muscle strength, body and everything that comes with it are what they are. He just doesnīt look the same player he was before his back surgery. Heīs still a very good NBA player, but he has lost his freakish athletism and explosiveness, that literally elevated him from good to special. Now he is just a good player, whose flaws fouling and turnover, become more obvious as his strength are reduced. And itīs unlikely that he can or will develop his fundamentals to compensate for the loss of his athletism.

We donīt even know if heīs pain free. He probably wouldnīt tell until he has signed that extension, maybe heīs literally grinding on his last discs to get the final big contract.

That surgery is very serious. Amare had it last summer, and just like Dwight he put up his career numbers basically last year, but he was a shell of his former self in terms of activity. He says that he just got back to feeling like himself this offseason...and we haven't really been able to see if that's true yet.

But I don't see how you could call him Kosta Koufas?...He's clearly the best center in the league still. Or amongst them. If he could shoot fts, he would certainly be.

That's not accurate. Kosta Koufos (the Greek national team's third string center) is much more skilled than Dwight Howard is.

His back injury (first major) totally fcuked up his head.

He is scared shitless he cannot jump as high, run, etc. as good as he use to.

In that sense I do feel bad for him. You dont wish serious injury on any NBA player.

Dwight though to come in here pointing the fingers at others for bad games and making a stupid comment two weeks ago about how he will go anywhere to chase rings? Fu** this fool.

Kobe was a dickhead before Phil saved him(twice).

That actually wouldn't surprise me. What sets Dwight apart from the rest is his athleticism, his basketball skills are mediocre at best...

This is the type of shit I'm sick of hearing.

Why aren't Gerald Green, James White and McGee the best players in the league then? All some of the best athletes.

Because they aren't the strongest players in the NBA? You're full of shit if you think Dwight at 240 pounds let's say and not very athletic and strong would thrive.

I'm just saying.... Dwight has won nothing and has failed to be the leader who takes responsibility and leads. Therefor it's a joke to talk about ring chasing and always pointing the finger at somebody else. Kobe may not carry himself much differently but at this point he has the hardware and legend status to back it up.

I love how people are rewriting Dwight's career based on how he looks after back surgery. Go refresh yourself on some 09 or '11 Dwight
