Its hard to get shots off as a big man unless HE IS THE OFFENSE, which he isn't or HE SHOOTS jumpers, which Dwight doesn't.


In the post, it's very easy to get doubled and then Metta jacks a shot or someone .


^^True but D12 also wastse his good look ops & throws the ball back out to perimeter instead of taking an attempt. He has to watch Shaq old film & get better low post position inside the block when running from defensive end to otherside of court. He tries to get the ball & its never directly inside block; its always 1-3 steps out past block. (Thats too far for him to be trying to make his moves to the hoop)
Never Wrong Always Right Like Freeway Exits!!

DWIGHT ISN'T OFFENSVE MINDED LIKE SHAQ...His game isn't going to change now, being compromised by injury...That's not happening

Dwight is Dwight. A great defensiv player and despite whatever you want to say about his post moves, him and Pau and David lee and most Big man average the same amount of points Around 18-20 career PPG

it's simple, fight strong for position and stop putting the ball down so much!

He should start trying first.

If its not a lob pass or a put back dunk, Dwight cannot be relied upon to score effectively or reliably enough.


His game just looks so unpolished to me. Bynums footwork, shot selection, soft touch, ability to read defenses was much much better. I was all for this trade at the time, not so sure any more.

This. He just quits when he stops getting the ball for a stretch. Apparently we have to spoon feed him every time on the offensive end.

I rarely see him DEMAND the ball either. When Kobe really wants the ball, he posts up his man aggressively until someone throws it in to him. And if you don't, you're going to hear about it.

^This. Looks like he is just going through the motions most of the time. What a waste.

And offensively with all that and Howard's shoulder injury and adding a more offensive minded bench and PG, Bynum averaged 1 more bucket than Dwight. And Mike brown went through Bynum more than we go through Dwight.


Teams successfully fronted the post against Bynum and Pau all last season. Dwight also passes out of double teams unlik Bynum

But I hope you recognize this is only your opinion.

You don't know how much he is in pain, but we do know AS FACTS, that Dwight did have a SERIOUS back surgery last off-season and he DOES have a torn labrum.

Realistically, can you say how difficult that makes playing a game in which you use your LEGS, Back, and Shoulders a lot.

We know he is hurting, and not 100%.

But if he can throw down putback dunks, go up and get rebounds, and box people out, he can still set solid screens. He's just not doing it.

The shoulder isn't the back and his production was fine to about the point when Nash came back

And he cant do it consistently because his legs/his body wont let him. You're not going to get the same Howard who gives effort every time he steps on the floor like when he was in orlando so you guys need to stop looking for it. Cause its not happening right now

I'm going to wait and see how Bynum does as the main man in Philly before I jump on the "We Miss You" train.
