That's fine you can run it with Pau now who can actually pump fake and then score instead of getting stripped half the time!!!

Or Kaman even. I'm sure he'll set more convincing screens and he can knock down the mid-range shot like your old boy Gortat as well as free throws.


yo.

Of course he never wanted to run it, he had dreams of being the next legendary post-up center. All about getting the credit right, Dwight? I'm curious to see how they'll include him in the offense in Houston, as they ran post-ups extremely rarely. It's a shame, as Dwight is one of the best roll men in the NBA. Keep shooting 40% on post-ups please though.

Don't know what it was with players trying to be outside themselves.

Meeks wanted to prove he was more than a 3 point shooter... Dwight wanted to prove he was more than a pick and roll center...

Rather than working to their strengths which would have made it easier on EVERYONE they tried to push their own "Well this is gonna be an easy season I can do and work on whatever I want in games and it won't cost us."

Well.....

Yup. Also known as "diffusion of responsibility".  Which is why Houston should be very worried; Dwight has always complained about not being surrounded with talent, yet when he was on the Lakers he looked lost because he thought winning should be easier. Now he thinks he is going to another team with talent. What he doesn't realize is that it isn't that you still have to work just as hard if not harder. Ha ha Houston; have fun with your new man-child.

Dwight reminds me a lot like Lamar. World of potential but doesn't do anything with it. He wants post touches yet he's not even a top 10'"post" player. I still find it amazing how he can average 20 points without a post game
