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...
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.
