Default Dwight Howard, how good will he become

Dwight is already an insane rebounder, but his offense is still coming along.

Is this the season to finally start feeding him the rock?

Feed him the rock now? Who knows? Have to wait for the season to start to be able to tell... but this year or next should be one of the years or it probably won't happen for him offensively in terms of becoming a juggernaut. His defense & rebounding are way ahead of schedule and as long as that keeps improving along with Darko's offense, Magic are set.

If his offense develops as good as it could be, we could be looking at someone between Garnett and Shaq in terms of how good they end up. But I'm not sure it'll happen... I think he'll end up being a shade under KG & TD when his career is said and done as far as an individual standpoint goes but I think he will be the second most important piece if not most important piece of a championship team if that makes any sense. The things he's good at... he's just so good at. Sorta like Ben Wallace.

He is a David Robinson type to me. I'm not judging his offensive output until his 5th year. Everything until then is gravy.

He still has so much to learn. Especially on offense. But the guy is such a hard worker and still so young, I think he could average around 25+ppg in the future. Next year I'm expecting around 20ppg from him. Then I think that will steadily rise until he reaches his prime.

On defense, he'll be fine. Multiple all defensive teams are in his future.

I'll say this... I'm glad we have Dwight on our team because I would hate to go up against a guy like Dwight Howard in his prime. That is just a scary thought.

dwight is probably gonna end up bein a 26 pt-14 rb-4 ast-2.5 blk guy = a monster! him and amare (b4 injury) are dominant without havin much basketball knowledge or post moves...they play straight off of their athleticism and natural ability...i remember amare sayin "just wait till someone teaches me how to actually play this game"

He's not 4 assist type passer man.

Especially when Turkoglu's slowing down, Nelson doesnt seem like catching the ball back out of the post and drilling it.

Otherwise, it's correct.

Put it down to 2.5 or 3 assists. and add some points.

Hedo ain't slowing down. He's just entering his prime. Nelson may be a better 3 point shooter then Hedo. It's pretty close.

4 assists may asking too much but we'll have to wait and see. He already gets doubled a lot and his offensive game isn't fully developed yet. Plus he is steadily improving at passing the ball out of the post. Also having Darko in the starting lineup will help his assist numbers. They are always looking for eachother when they're on the floor at the same time.

his passin wil get better, plus wen he starts to get doubled more he will HAVE to pass out. i think he might average more points, but i doubt it because i dont think he will need to because jameer seems like a scoring pg and tukoglu can score and darko can put up atleast 10 a game too add in a decent SG and ur set.

How could can he be? He can be the best big in the league.

How could will he be? He needs to improve on defense and develop a jumper. If he does that, the sky's the limit.
