First he brought our defense since the all-star break from the 22nd in the league to now the 11th or 12th for a time and since the all star break our defense has been the 2nd best in the league and here's a new statistic in our last 4 games
Put that with the fact that when Howard sits because of no Gasol our allowed defensive numbers would boost up to 122.8 allowed and you'll see just how huge of a difference he makes when on the court! That's astounding.

LAL D last 4 games: allowing 91.8 ppg on 40.0% FG's (3 of last 4 opponents have been held to less than 40%). Howard's been the key.
Should he be in DPOY discussions?
