Yeah, he can do that **** against the Hawks and the rest of the East during the regular season, but he ain't worth **** in the playoffs against top post defenders. I don't remember him doing much against the Pistons this year.

I don't see how feeding him plays in the post is gonna help his turnovers. More possesions for him = more turnovers.

i think they over-paid Howard just like they over-paid Lewis... Howard is a defensive Center who has trouble scoring... pretty much a improved and younger Ben wallace with less hair... not a good deal...

The Magic need a point guard and most of all, get rid of Nelson.

He averaged 15/15 against them. 27/19 or something like that being the highlight.

I see he did average 15.3 ppg, 14.8 RPG shooting 55% but he also had 4.25!!! turnovers/game, only 1 block/game, 0.5 steals/game, 1.75 assists/game, and shot 45% from the line.

And his team got swept.

And he was 21 years old with little help outside of Grant Hill and occasionaly Hedo Turkoglu. Along with one of the leagues worst coaches.

People just need to to give Dwight TIME.

Good for the Magic to lock him up, but they really need to get a big man coach or something and teach Howard how to use his strengths to his advantage. He has very little post moves and like people have said can't pass out of double teams too well at all. He needs to practice his offensive game a lot, he can't live on athleticism for ever.

I know he's athletically gifted and young, but you can't focus on young age anymore with all the high schoolers. You need to look at how long he's been in the league and how he's progressing. Outside of rebounding, he hasn't shown a ton of improvement in other areas like passing, specifically out of doubleteams, post offense, rotations, shooting...That's all I'm saying.

And nobody's saying he's Paul Shirley. We're just saying he has a lot of improving to do, and pointing out his flaws. That's all.

His flaws have been pointed out time, time, time, time, time and time again. Guess what though? You're a lying ******* if you say you wouldn't give him a max deal.
