For the past few summers, Dwight Howard has made the trip to Houston to train with Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon in hopes to further his low post offensive game.
Via Twitter on Saturday, a fan asked Dwight Howard if he will continue to do so. Dwight politely responded that he will.
@BullCityMarine this summer I will.

Despite having back surgery and a torn labrum in his shoulder, Howard is still averaging 16. 2 points and 11.9 rebounds per game. This continued off-season training, along with a healthy body, will help Howard develop into a more sophisticated low post threat, ending his predictability on offense. This development, alongside more continuity with the current players, makes the Lakers future look bright… no matter how dark the present may be.
