He definitely lost a lot of weight. Wonder if that will help or hurt him.

:lol: :lol: I meant play great one on one defense, pass, run the floor, step up in games when needed, and stay in shape. I would gladly take a Dwight if he wanted to play that role of body the best big, do the dirty work, limit his offensive touches, but show up offensively when needed

He lakcs Karls IQ overall though

Help. Howard is big enough and athletic enough not to get dominated by any C in the NBA one-on-one besides maybe Embiid and Jokic.

He’s ripped. Not an ounce of fat. That is a great thing to see at his age. Wise, in fact.

Remember fat Shaq on the Celtics? Trying the opposite is probably a very good idea. Being lean but ripped instead of heavy and thick increases longevity of any career, reduces risk of injury. Tendons dry up with age. See Kobe.

This lean version of DH should increase his foot quickness and mobility on defense. Easier to keep up laterally on D, jump high for lobs if he’s not fat. To run the break with Bron and AD? Even Howard can manage that role.

I think he’ll be our second stringer C.

The Laker envy is real over there in Clipper land. I saw a thread that said "LeBron grudge..." from the main page so I clicked on it . .. and one of them has posted a video about how singing Howard over Noah was a mistake.

Too funny . . . they really do talk about the Lakers over there.

Clipper fans lol. Give a kid an inch, he'll take a mile. Give a kid a candy, next thing u know, he wants a beer. Theyre trash talking is all mouth. But they dont truly believe it. A couple losses amd theyll go back to booing their own team again.

is saw the clip of howard shooting threes and i doubt he will shoot any next season but the form seems to be better especially his right hand but hey never take off season clip to reflect the actual form come season. just hope for a better FT%
