you cannot run the PnR with this bumbling idiot.

He can't catch a damn bounce pass...how you gonna set him up for pick and rolls.

Ask Kobe and his need for ~30 FGA, no pun intended, i think Kobe is playing great but it is a team game, so he really needs to find out how to complement Dwights (and others perhaps) game the best...

Not sure if we're watching the same games. I remember the Lakers game plan is to give Dwight the ball every time and he keeps fumbling it, especially the previous game (I didn't watch the latest game). You can't hardly complain about Dwight not getting touches, he got plenty and isn't doing much with it.

Nash's bounce passes bounce off Howards hands, or Howard gets the ball and instead of keeping it high, he brings it low and takes an unneeded dribble and gets stripped or fouled. He's good at finished lobs for alleyoops though

Why isn't the coach getting on him about that? Or even Kobe can give Howard the heads up. No point ignoring Howard on offense, that will certainly ensure Lakers won't win a title.

They aren't ignoring Howard on offense did you actually watch the game? In the first half they went to him nearly every time down the court.

Coaches probably tell him things he's been hearing his whole and he ignores it. For example "Keep the ball up high Dwight!" basic bigmen fundamentals he ignores.

FT advice from Steve Nash Howard said he ignored

Hakeem telling the press that D12 is the only player not using the things he taught him.

Ignoring Bill Russells advice on blocking technique by continuing to swat everything out of bounds.

Howard doesn't listen to anyone, he acts like someone who was never told no in his life and shuts down when he hears it.

Sounds like a guy too dumb to learn new things. Gets confused and stressed when presented with new info so he rejects it and keeps doing what he does. I know many such people

Lakers need to scrap everything and change offense to inside out. It works with Dwight, they need to change the system. Its not working. Cant possibly do any worse.

Dwight ball will never win a title.

SVG's system in Orlando allowed Dwight to get his at the expense of the entire team.

No team will ever win it all with Dwight Howard as the first option.

Magic were never legit contenders, they got out of the east once when KG was hurt. Perennial 3 seed in the east is not a big accomplishment.

Building an offense around Dwight when you have Nash, Gasol and Bryant is the most foolish thing anyone can ever do.

The clown can't even run a basic pick and roll consistently, while playing with one of the best pick and roll guards of all time.

It's because he believes he's good enough to carry a team to a title, he believes he's an elite scorer, he swallows up the media hype and everyone around him probably does nothing but prop him up too.

Right, that's why Bynum would literally scream at teammates to pass him the ball

That's why Lakers fans were constantly writing essays on how bynum shouldn't get more touches.

The problem here is that Howard shatted on Kobe publicly and the kobef@ggotts took an issue with it.

But yeah keeps bashing howard, rest of the world is laughing knowing you guys traded Bynum for a guy that is going to walk.

This would improve the team immensely Title talk is a looooooong away from this team. Comparing is meaningless with completely different team even though they were 2 wins from a title.

Lakers need huge overhaul from current approach and I'm trying to be constructive. You think they should remain the same and hope it turns around?
