Im happy things went our way tonight. Still have to see Dwight doing this on a consistent basis. When the team wins its very easy to have good quotes,its when you loose that you have to show you can handle it mentally,I still expect Dwight to "mature" this season

What I see in here mostly is people who try to point blame. The finger is sometimes pointed at kobe, but more than not it's pointed every where else.


Except , of course Dr. Buss before he passed and Jeanie.


Dwight hasn't created this record. Dwight didn't ask to tear his labrum. Dwight didn't ask to be traded here specifically.

If Dwight was really a bad teammate, he would say his back is sore. No one could ever contest that. He could sit out and say his back tightened up.


The media is successfully manipulating a lot of you. And some of you have hate in your heart and no real sense of basketball knowledge on top of that.

The REAL difference in Dwights great performance last night in Boston is the Celtics have NO Center.
Chris Wilcox, Jason Collins and Fab Melo combined for 19 mins, 2 pts, 2 rebs.
Lets not fail to recognize that.

No, the real difference was that Dwight wasn't wearing a headband last night.

most teams in the NBA have no center, so that is encouraging :)

I hope this is true..


I hope Dwight finds that next gear to help him get over his injured self and lack of concentration or whatever the issue has been.


I hate seeing this team lose.
The Lakers FO knows more than you. Sorry.

Where I take issue is all the D12 fans who have been making excuses for the guy all year by saying:
"hes injured, what do you expect",
are the same fans that after a game in which he plays well says
"hes turning things around, he looked like he played motivated tonight, it looks like he put forth real effort"

And then next week when hes back to the lethargic, could care less shell of himself, those same fans will return to defending him by saying
"its because he was injured, he just had back surgery", etc.

Its a HUGE issue. The BIGGEST. Worse than a knee maybe. He may never recover. Larry johnson didnt. Derrick Coleman didnt. I think Shawn kemp didnt either. They continued to play, but they were not the same player they were before the back surgeries. Thats the issue. But hell he may not even resign with us...lol. Thats the double down gamble we just took. So now we have to do the following:
1] resign Dwight
2] Hope in time his back fully recovers
3a] restructure a team around Dwight
3b] hope by the time that happens KB has gas in his tank
