Damn calm down no way anyone taking Dwint over LBJ or KD


actaully , youre wrong. after the 10-11 season, ESPN's HUGE pannel of analysts had dwight as the #2 player in the nba.

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Phil Jackson would.

I think I'll take the word of greatest coach in the history of the NBA over yours. With all due respect.

This is if Howard is healthy of course.

We'll see how your opinion changes when Dwight leaves us. Than you'll say that he isn't even the best center in the game.

no,im sry, no player effects more aspects of the game with the magnitude that dwight does. im sorry i think that the #2 player in the nba(by ESPN's ranking) is actually #1, so far fetched. you will all see when dwights healthy,very soon. we will win the "chip" this year because of dwight. im taking all bets.

ESPN actually ranked him #3 behind LBJ & KD. So...

If we win the Championship I'll never post again, if we don't you never post again. Bet?

i was talking about after dwights last healthy season. http://espn.go.com/n...ayer-rankings-2
idc what he was ranked after last year, he had "back spasms" for a couple months before it was diagnosed as a disc problem(it was probably the disc the whole time)

and a broke dude wants money, homie. lol

I was one of the few who preferred Bynum over Howard. Neither is what I would call mature or emotionally intelligent but Howard's injury notwithstanding I don't get why this pretty one-dimensional center is crowned with glowing admiration. He can defend well and block shots. Great. He can score whenhe gets the ball underthe basket (most ofth time) but other than that this guy is chump change. He can't shoot free throws. He doesn't play well with the other kids. His passing is mediocre. His outside shot non-existent and his basketball IQ is average at best. While the blind supporters of franchise wrecker heap praise on the incompetent Jim Boy for landing Howard and a way over the hill Nash, methinks the Lakers would be in a lot better shape if we had Phil, Bynum, Odom, and Barnes on the court day in and day out, But no, Jim Boy, grandiose and ineffective, has set in motion the fall of the Laker empire. Jim NERO Buss is the culprit and fans better wake up and start chanting, NERO MUST GO! NERO MUST GO! Or else we're going to be out of the hunt for a ring for many BUSS-TED moons. Jimbo, pretty please, with sugar on it---step down, fool, step down.


Sorry, but thats another second round exit waiting to happen. The league is better than a couple of years ago, why stay stagnant?

actually I agree with the op. Its not that hes a bad player. But he isnt or hasnt been the dominant force people make him out to be. I damn near died when people were comparing him to Shaq in his prime. Dwight will NEVER, EVER be 1/4 the impact player on the court Shaq was. It doesnt matter how hard he works and what he does to make his game better. He cant. Now he may end up with more Chips someday because he ends up going to Miami with Bron and Bosh or something....but hes not close to the presence Shaq was on the court. But hes a good player and I expect more from him going forward. Not numbers wise. 17/12 is about what hes good for. I expect more in regards to the plays he makes having a impact on game outcomes.
