ESPN got Kawhi Leonard prediction wrong. 😀😀😀 ESPN's Brian Windhorst got the Dwight Howard prediction wrong. Media personnel were praying that Brian Windhorst was right because they didn't want the Lakers to have even more publicity this summer = easily carrying the NBA on it's back throughout the summer News Cycle.

The reason he gets slandered so much is because he was one of the best centers we've ever seen, and now the media compares him to what he used to be. Injuries have somewhat killed off his godly athleticism. He's still a good player, but he comes with baggage.

Dwight needs to focus on dominating the boards, running the court, and focusing on being the best defender he can be.

Did you really asked that?!? He made 32pts and 30rebs in 2018, and he made 25pts and 17rebs the last season. You should watch more Dwight games after you ask dumb questions. He still got it and he still making points and numbers. Ofcourse he can play. Don't be a clown, and don't disrespect this beast, You even have facts and you should follow him more after you talk stupid things

The problem with Dwight is that he's immature and out of touch. He has no emotional intelligence.

The guys numbers are still good. He’s been hurt and Today’s game is played different now. But he’s still useful and needed.

If Howard can stay healthy this year he will put up some good numbers in LA. Remember Zubac had a lot of double doubles with LA last year before being traded. Howard will be able to get even better numbers. LA probably needs him more than he needs LA because outside of him and McGee they have no centers.

Dwight is a player that chokes, you can just tell by looking at him. Needs to take basketball more seriously, too much of a frat boy.

I love the random clip of JR at 3:32. Dudes a legend. Well put together video as always coach. Thanks
Gordon’s Food Reviews
Yes he can still play... he’s still putting up all star number... the reason with all these teams like the lakers 1.0, and the rockets were fails was because the teams kinda sucked and he had injuries like back surgery , but with Atlanta and Charlotte he was pretty damn good... Now with the wizards he had injuries and couldn’t get a rhythm, but was still an above average center... he’ll be great with the lakers

Depends on how his body holds up. Back injuries are terrible. He was still productive after the first back surgery. Although he’s older now, it this latest surgery hasn’t affected him that negatively he should still be productive.

Stop saying the post up game is dead in the nba...people just try to emulate championship winning teams. Right now, everyone’s trying to emulate the old Golden State, or even San Antonio for a time. We’re one Phili championship away from low post old school action.

A lot of disrespect to Dwight, don’t even need to make this video, fuck you bball coach

Dwight and Javale can do similar things. McGee had a great season last year. I'm not mad at this. If Dwight plays his role and doesn't get injured, he's good.
