Video: Dwight Howard, the Point Guard

Hakeem Olajuwon, the man training Dwight Howard for the second straight summer, told Dwight he needs more “freedom” in his game. Playing the point is apparently part of that plan, which Howard does pretty damn well in the clip above.

  • Karl

    Holy… imagine if he started doing this in the NBA. Who would guard a versatile monster like that?

    That defense could’ve sucked the eye out of a parakeet with a straw.

    Can we say Charity Game?

    Looks like the training with Hakeem is paying off.

    knowing rodman he has stated he wanted to leave his last game naked and david stern got wind of it and said by doing that it would void his contract and salary if he did. so he didn’t do it.

    i wouldn’t be surprised if he showed up naked or something along those lines…..

  • autoprt

    why do you have the headline banner rodman has doozy planned for hall of fame entrance and the article goes to dwight howard?

    Dwight…stick to the post up game, work on that short jumper, and pump up your free throw percentage. Leave that stuff to the little guys.

    Well Stan Van is his coach and we’ve all seen the handle on that guy!

    @Karl – there is a versatile monster like that in the league , his name is Lebron James…

    like Syl said: it’s a charity game. So there isn’t a lot of D, and no, he doesn’t alwatys have to “stick to the post up game”. It’s a charity event, nothing serious.

    It doesn’t matter if its a charity event, nba game, or backyard pick up. Us Slam commenters will not tolerate, carrying, travelling or big men going coast to coast on ANY basketball court!


    agreed with the last comment

    Ok bring up the ball no real crossover hesitation move all with right hand went str8 to the rack… no one can stop that its like lebronx2 but he should work on his post game n midrang n freethrows would benefit him more then getting handles n trying to play like a guard jus get that midrange tim duncan game n ur good
