Dwight's last year in Orlando - 20.6 points, 14.5 rebounds, 2.1 blocks, 57.3 FG%.
Dwight's first year in L.A. - 17.5 points, 11.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 57.4 FG%.
You look at those numbers obviously his scoring is down signifanctly as is his rebounding, but that's what happens when you're no longer the #1 option and playing with a guy like Kobe who clearly dominates the ball and takes alot of shots. As for the rebounding in Orlando he had the whole lane to himself because he played with a stretch 4 in Ryan Andersen who constantly camped out at the three point line. Now he's playing with a 7 footer who challenges for boards in Pau Gasol. Plus you have to remember as it's been stated several times Howard is nowhere near 100 percent.
Considering all those factors it's relatively easy to see why Dwight's numbers are down in Los Angeles.
