Seriously, Dwight ain't even half the player O'neal was. He has some huge shoes to fill in Laker land and I think he might fall short. Not saying they can't win the championship next year or two but when Kobe and Nash leave, there's nothing guaranteed and he will need two superstars by his side.

How come Steve Nash didn't get this much publicity? He's only the 2x MVP, ya know?

One is in the middle of his prime, and the other is 39 with 1 foot in the grave(of his NBA career).

To be fair age really shouldn't affect his court vision, shooting, or ball handling. It's not like Nash built a career on burning dudes and rebounding

He has a nice rocker step but everything else is just ugly.


so what if its ugly, its effective

he scored 20 a game last year, without anybody to get him good shots, while being the focal point of the opposing teams defense, and on top of that, he wasnt even trying that hard

howard is an elite offensive player, with a great post game

What passes for an NBA center today finds it very difficult to compete with the combination of his power and speed, so in that sense I won't deny that he's a very very good (not elite) offensive player.

They put him in high screens so many times and let him roll and put so much floor spacers around him that he worked in a completely empty post where you just backdown and embarass slower and smaller defenders.

So in the same vein that Griffin is good offensively (Griffin's actually got a couple decent moves tho) Dwight is as well.

Pick and Roll with Nash will help the entire sequence.

However, if you put him against guys like Dream,Ewing,Shaq,Robinson, etc etc he would get eaten for breakfast.He has the most limited set of offensive skill of anyone I've seen deemed a "Great center".

It's a joke really.

Kareem's number is still in the Rolodex. He'll be getting a call to work with Howard

Which is why Dwight's impact on the Lakers will not be as much as Nash's impact. The difference between Dwight and Bynum is minimal.
