You also add 9 FTs which is essentially 4 extra shots/game. I happened to be in Staples when he took more shots vs Cleveland and Boston. But yes there were games that Kobe, Nash, Metta gets carried away and move away from Dwight like the last 3 games but even when he took only 8 in Denver, he took, 14FTs. so...Back when he coached Phoenix, Amare also had some decent amt of shots.
Amare could hit from 15 feet and out, Dwight can't.
My point is that if a team is not going to get you the ball because their goal every time down court is to shoot 3's then why bother focusing on a double team? He is not freeing up any shooters......besides our shooters are not that good or reliable.
Uh.....he shot MORE free thrown in Orlando...so by your logic he is getting even less shots (No offense intended )
Other point, Dwight's shots in Orlando were all in the paint with him being the focus of the offense, it's a whole different ballgame now.....so don't let the shot count fool you......WATCH THE GAME NOT THE STATS
