no matter where he goes dwight will never be the man on a team. his game is not suited for that
harden is the man on that rockets team.
25 ppg and young. make no mistake.
i do not get some people who think dwight is all of a sudden going to average near 30 a game. when has he done that? not in orlando with a bunch of trash.
thats not his game. its a shame a big man like him only gets a bit over an assist a game for his career
you can blame kobe, blame antoni, blame the pressure, but seriously dwight is Dwight.
dwight would have been great on the lakers because we would have had another max player to put next to him and a really good player to go along. he wa never going to be that franchise player regardless of what mitch kupchak or any person on the lakers organization fed his ego at the time
he averaged what 17 ppg last year with the lakers playing less minutes than the previous 2 years and getting worse at the free throw line by about 10 percent.
if he was healthy and made his free throws he would have gotten his averages or better
nobody hindered his game
lakers would have been better off had he re signed with them but what can you do? cannot force someone to stay if he doesnt want to
They basically took a player off/on a injury...placed him in a offense to which he has never played in before...with types of players hes never played with before. Run a offense to which he more or less wasn't even a option. And when he was you were expecting him to do things, in which he has never shown/displayed he could do at any point in his career. They essentially took a player, looked at his numbers and what he has produced and said...well we want you to do the same thing, only do it in a totally different way, in a totally different style of play that you have never shown you could play...That would be like asking rose, while injuried to return to play...still produce like you did, but now I want you to play like a rondo....and run a style of offense that you have never ran before
