Default Dwight Howard does not have the mental strength to be Championship calibre player

That airball free throw proved something about Howard's mental strength. The guy is scared of big moments. All that laughing and playing is a cover for his childlike fears. Do not rely on him in the big moments. He had an ineffective offensive night against a team he should be getting 20+ pts against. It's all well and good to do it against the Cavs and Bucks, but he's gotta step up for the big boys.

Agreed. People can blame the perimeter players for not being able to get the ball in to him, but its not like Dwight was actively fighting for position as hard as he could have. He was obviously too scared to demand the ball because of his fear of getting fouled and having to shoot free throws.

Default Re: Dwight Howard does not have the mental strength to be Championship calibre player

There would be no ill words for dwight if this was 2011 before his back problems...and hell even last year before he decided to call it quits and have the back surgery he was the BEST DEFENSIVE PLAYER in the league. Even with his back problems he was still the most dominant defensive player in the league last season. The coaches actually got something right when they ignored the media picking Chandler DPOY and made Dwight 1st team all defensive team. Chandler isn't an anchor at all. The Knicks played good team defense more so then having a dominant player anchoring said defense. I literally laughed out loud when woaah compared Chandler to Patrick Ewing...what an insult to Ewing. Now that was a true anchor.

I'm going to find it hilarious if Howard leaves and after a year of rehabbing his back he's back to his usual self. I would leave if I was him. He's going to get the max either way, but why deal with all the bullshit that comes with playing in LA and not to mention the total lack of loyalty they showed him as he spent a season rehabbing.

he does, however, have the mental strength to text twelve year old girls named Brittany.
Dwight is a little kid in a warriors body.

The Heat are a good 3-point shooting team and only made 2 three's last night. Any average night where they hit 7 or 8 three's and this game is a total blowout.

They also missed quite a few layup attempts. Maybe it had something to do with traveling on back to back nights to play 2 nights in a row.

Despite all this it didn't matter

Still won.... even though this game was the Fakers season and they needed this game desperately

Fakers suck

Howard is Better than he has Shown with LA thus far that much is true.. This guy Can be a Beast which right now he is not. He always struggled with FT's but his Defense and even Scoring just are not up to par.
