Well Kobe agrees..

On our way to the Garden. Ready to do that work. If D12 is healthy he will play if he's not he won't. Simple math #countonmediahype

During postgame interview, Mike D'Antoni said Dwight Howard has been cleared to play for awhile, but he chose not to play until tonight.

Mike D'Antoni on Dwight Howard: "He felt better today. Thats why he played."


https://twitter.com/Tom_Layman/status/299725397027876864

D'Antoni on Howard: "Hes cleared. Hes always been cleared." Said it was always based on how Howard felt physically.

I'm about ready to jump on the ship him out bandwagon. He's not our future face of the franchise.

His body is failing him and his attitude is showing hes not handling it well at all. Hes pointing fingers everywhere else but himself. Just own up to yourself you know? Its not the struggles and losing thats bothering me but the way he goes about it. Come on show some mettle instead of being fussy and defensive all the time. Im slightly leaning towards trading him if we can find a great deal for him that can net us 2 All stars in return who fit our team (Horford + Smith? Millsapp + Jefferson? Lopez + Humphries + Joe Johnson? ) something along those lines.

Mike Brown wasn't the answer Mike D'Antoni isnt the answer
Bynum wasnt the answer and it looks like Howard isnt the answer


- The injury is clearly limiting him, he was tryin to block shots with his left hand and going cross bodied swipes, picked up 2-3 fouls doing that so I understand hes hurt and its limiting him. Shut him down and give him surgery and re-sign him and restart the season next year

or

- Trade him


I think its pointless for him to continue playing this year. He looks like hes done for this year

That's because he is.

Dwight obviously had back surgery and he completely relies on his athleticism. He's probably never gonna be the same athletically therefore barring huge upgrade in his offensive skills I'd say his days as an elite level superstar are over.

If we could get 2-3 good players for him I think we should do it.

I agree 1,000%
Bad back, tingling knees and torn labrum. He needs to shut it down until he's 100% or At least closer to it. No use in playing, aggravating the injuries more and then moaning and groaning about it to the media.

He didn't say that. There was confusion whether or not Dwight had been cleared until tonight and he has been cleared the past few games but was in too much pain to play until today. Relax guys. But it's time for him to put his big boy pants on now.

I never had a bad back before, let alone surgery on it. I got family who do though. They ain't never been the same. Their mobility is really limited. I can't see him 100% being what he once was. One good elbow check by a defender could do some damage. What he has been able to do thus far is crazy to me. Running, dunking and stretching his back going for blocks....
