it takes more than one generation to get back to a peak in a bloodline usually. Kobe's an exception but he was treated differently being sent to China and ****.
This is just through my observation tho. When one becomes super successfull in whatever, the sons are born into the success and dont learn the mental toughness it takes from going from bottom to top. And then they slack but THERE sons will make up for it.

Howard is also a better defensive center today than Shaq ever was.
You're right about that. Most often it's like that.
Didn't he actually spend more time in Italy and isn't it said that he speaks the language fluently? What about China? Never heard about that before. That's news to me.
Before the end of the season Dirk will be a beast in the paint offensively (Hakeem level).
dirk has much left in his tank ! stay tuned
and what makes me smile is without jumping and banging dirk earns 6 reb again. I will give him time and after the all star break he will give us a double double night in and out ! book it
"Dallas not a playoff team?? Dirk, Dwight and 13 Adam Morrisons would make the playoffs. "
RUN DMC Baby
Wouldn't mind it.
