Odds Dwight Howard returns to form this season.

Do you guys think we'll see anything close to the dominant Orlando-Dwight at any point in this season?
Especially with Pau out, everything depends on it.

i've said it 100 times but rehab only gets you back to status quo. it gets you back to the most basic, ground level athleticism for each person.
so until he gets an offseason to lift, run, jump, and get in the basketball gym he won't be himself.

I'd still want him to stay with the Lakers long term. He should be much better next year on both ends. Hopefully he recognizes these injuries are limiting and Kobe doesn't drive him away, so he knows this season is an aberration. And I really hope the Lakers don't pick D'Antoni over Dwight.

Honestly, he needs surgery on his labrum, and then a full 6 months to rehab both his shoulder/back and conditioning before he can attempt to be what he was.

Dwight wants this season to end so he can have shoulder surgery and finish rehabilitating his back. If we miss the play-offs, then he can get started sooner and be ready for the start of next season.

0.. agree completely with last stand. If Dwight resigns I believe we will see a complete different guy next year
^The off season will be critical to find out how close to the old Dwight is possible. Whether he can return to what he was capable of at 24/25 after major surgery and when he is 28 still remains to be seen. Work ethic will have alot to do with it.

That's the important question.
