if he goes to the nets and doesn't average those stats I am going to quote all these stupid ass quotes you posted. Dwight didn't average those stat lines with the magic what makes you think he's going to average that j Brooklyn?

So even with Orlando, an offense specifically catered around Dwight he didn't average those inflated numbers but somehow in BK dude will just average that?

Some of you need to stop.

I haven't heard a Howard joke? When did he blow off the media? Simply put, why would he have this chemistry problem in Brooklyn anyway? Are you just making nonsense up. Mello didn't win and this was after Amare proved he could carry the team the year before. Mello didn't mesh with the team and a guy on his way out of the league came in and totally stold his thunder and proved he could make us a winner. Did Mello get booed? And Knick fans have been there forever, so their expectations are high. I respect that about our fans.

Now Brooklyn is a brand new team that just wants to be legit. Expectations are far less. Even if the team loses, Dwight will almost always have the most impressive output in the game. The guy works.

And this thought he is KG like in his effort stems from where? KG right now is on a Boston team that is underachieving and he's playing ridiculously hard. Howard is on an underachieving team now for almost the third year in a row and he's whining and doing everything but trying hard.
His teams always made the playoffs and there was never another star in sight. The Nets have players who would compliment him in a different way. An all around 2 guard who was an allstar, a premier allstar PG, a double/double PF, A defensive 3 standout are all things he never had before.

And the stuff i bolded just made no sense and was stupid. No, the crowd in MSG is not controlled through paid plants. You're a moron. No the NY media is not controlled via money. It's extremely critical and lots of it works for competitors of MSG. The Knicks have shitloads of money and fought with the media forever. The Nets don't get it because they are still second class citizens still. It will come as their profile increases. It's not because they are paying people off.

You're just clueless, you are making shit up. Do you live in China or something that your view is so bizarre because it's from watching via the net or something? Serious question.

I thought you were older but you are probably still a teen. You actually just said that the NY media isn't controlled via money. You can't be in college yet. But I'll use your terms and maybe you will get it. If the Nets are second class citizens then why would fans be critical of getting one of the best players??? You think having one of the best players wouldn't increase their profile??? You don't have a clue as to having a top five player in the league does for your profile. And if you think Brooklyn people, who haven't had a team in 5 decades wouldn't be appreciative of a top effort/player in the league and be patient, just go hard at him after three months of chemistry issues you're crazy.

Brooklyn people, like the rest of NY, are among the most sophisticated fans on the planet. You thinking that they would turn their back on their chance to be first class after three months - remind you on a guy that just had back surgery, is just crazy. Please name me the journalist that you think would go hard at Dwight Howard in these circumstances? Name me one. They would revoke their press pass. Do you really think things work like that?

He obviously doesn't have the intensity or leadership but he battles for his position just as hard, and goes to the boards just as hard, and plays defense at the rim in way similar to KG. To me there's a top tier of two way players that go out really hard that only KG, Lebron and DH belong to.

He could do it for four very big reasons.

1. He only shot 13fga in Orlando. By far less than any dominant big in this league. Bynum shot 1 less shot per game with LA and their three stars. Another center shot 5 more shots per game than DH last year. Brook Lopez despite injuries shoots more than that now.

2. He's in his prime and developed an inside game within the last two and a half years which he is just beginning to perfect.

3. He would have adequate distraction by quality players that can create, pass, and were stars on their team. His shots would be more qualitative, along with his personnel.

4. His rebounding and defense shouldn't suffer as he could give more energy toward it.
