    Does Dwight Howard move like Red Foxx ?

    The only reason I am jerk enough to mention this is because I realize the amount of discontent this *** clown managed to create in LA by saying after he left that he "wanted Phil" all along.

    So here goes: I can't help but noticing that Dwight Howard now moves/runs like Red Fox in Sanford and Son, all rickety and bow-legged.

    Utter ripoff that Davis, Cousins or Duncan not going to all star game for the West.

    yeah... I was just noticing that there is so much unrest in the Laker forum and the Laker fanbase... all this stuff about Phil blah blah blah. And I was thinking about it, what a freakin' joke that this guy Dwight Howard as he leaves had to stir up all this stupid controversy by lying and pretending that he WOULD'VE stayed in LA if only they had hired Phil Jackson. As if he still wouldn't have had a dozen excuses to leave and wasn't already set and ready to go to Houston. It's just laughable, and now offseason bandwagoners like Magic use that as an argument against Dantoni and Jim Buss.

    But yeah I was just notcing... I mean Dwight gets this look out there when he's playing now like "what am I even doing out here" or something. Look I said before the season the Rockets had ZERO chance of making the Finals this year, despite all the pundits picking them as title favorites or contenders, and from where I sit I think their odds have actually even gone down somewhat. Anyways, I always thought he was a talented player and a good competitor, most of the time, and I don't mean to be negative but I just can't help but snark a bit right now. Tracing back to all the drama leaving Orlando, it's just unreal that he came to LA with even more drama after two years, and then he immediately leaves LA after one season and manages to badmouth Kobe, Dantoni, Jim Buss, Kupchak and the entire team on the way out the door. And, uh, he's just like *meh*. I mean would anybody even consider trading Kyrie, Lillard, Davis, Melo, Johnson, Love, Griffin, Cousins, Aldridge for this guy? I mean seriously would OKC even consider sending Ibaka and Lamb for him? It's just irks me that after all this three years of prima drama it is all just so meh-diocre

    But yeah... I'm a jerk. I shouldn't have posted this. Dwight is probably just still recovering from whatever injuries he had two years ago and will probably be much better next year.

    I don't know why I'm so negative. This is a crap thread everybody is right.

    I'm really enjoying this Laker season there is a lot of fresh talent and enthusiasm--I guess what really pisses me off is all the weirdo Laker fans obsessing on Jim Buss, even though everybody knows in their thick skulls that this is just a rebuilding/tank year at this point. And Magic is out there on the goddam tonight show telling Jay Leno he's so disappointed the Lakers aren't out there winning championships right now, and wah why didn't they hire Phil. It's just unbearably idiotic at this point.

    Could have been a top ten GOAT big. Now he's just a punch line.

    Yeah... The dude totally should've stayed in Orlando. His clumsy desperation to get out of Orlando seems ridiculous now. And he would've made 10-20 million more dollars with no state tax and better marketing image.

    I mean check that, he couldve made MORE. He couldve signed the max max extension before the new CBA for way more.

    James Harden must feel like Burt Wonderstone stuck doing the same show every night in Vegas

    Phil in his interview with Rick Fox came out and said that since the 2009 Finals, Dwight's entire game, both offensively and defensively. He said that he's made no improvements in his post game over the last 4 1/2 yrs and that his defense isn't what it used to be.

    He's still a stellar defensive player but I don't think that would be enough for me to have him on the team. In most cases, you don't even need a big who can post to be effective. That's all Dwight wants to do and he's not good at it.

    I'd rather a big who knows his limits.

    Lakers still wanted DH12 to resign cause he is that good otherwise they would have traded him for draft picks during the deadline or work with another team in a trade that would benefit the Lakers. Stubborn to a fault eh.

    Phil doesn't know what hes talking about, yes Dwight has declined, but when you make blanket statements like that, you gloss over the very real improvements Dwight was making before the injury struck

    What improvements was Dwight really making since the 2009 finals?

    I would probably agree with the notion that he was better defensively each year until his injury in 2012, but offensively, he was getting worse and worse. His FT% was around 57%+ when he got to the finals, and then steadily declined over 3 yr span down to 49%!
