You can argue Hakeem has better moves or is a better teacher than Kareem. But this is Dwight Howard, the king of the limited post game... he's not really in a position to say "this guy fits my game, this guy doesn't." He can use anything at this point.
So he should take advice from everyone?
He has a limited amount of time. He's working with Hakeem already. He probably has his own trainers. He has to keep lifting and staying in shape. He needs to work on free throws. He has to rest his body. Sure, in theory, you want the guy working on his post game 24/7 but that's not how it works.
You guys need to understand, Dwight is undersized compared to true 7 footers AND he doesn't have great touch. He's never going to be a monster in the post. He's still pretty damn good though.
Um no... I know he's not gonna be working with Kareem anymore
. I was talking about when he was a Laker.
He said he was eager to learn from Kareem last summer when he got to LA; Kareem says he never heard from him after they first met.
Now Dwight wants to make it sound like Hakeem fits his game better, which is why he's working with him and didn't bother working with Kareem. My point was that his stiff *** can use any help he can get - whether it's the Dream today or Kareem last year - even if he doesn't think it's a perfect fit for his game.
