Dwight Howard More Involved Offensively

Its no secret that Dwight Howard’s offensive game has come a long way since last season ended, but according to MagicBasketball.net his usage rates have never been higher. “Mind you, Howard doesn’t need to remind many people that he’s the best center in the league but for those that like to insert Yao Ming’s name in the discussion when he’s healthy or Pau Gasol if they want to bend the positional rules a little bit, the first five games of the regular season have provided a refresher course for them… Never before has Howard been as involved offensively as he is now. So far in the season, Howard’s usage rate is 32.1 percent. To put that number in perspective, Howard’s usage rate in 2009 was 26.1 percent — the highest of his career. Howard is getting the basketball as much as the Kevin Durant’s of the world, and that’s something that’s never happened to him before.”

    they should have figure that out 2 seasons ago. before it look like his own team didn’t trust to make a bucket, just power dunks and alley-oops.

    If he successfully merges Dream shakes with his freak athleticism, I nominate “Nightmare” to be his new nickname.

    aaron, you call that bullsh*t dream shake? COME ON SON it looked more like a nightmare.

  • hangtime Hec

    I heard last night was the 4th time that Howard got 20 shot attempts in a game. Isn’t that crazy?

    That was definitely not the dream shake.

    Dwight is shutting up the haters. Theyre gonna have to name the mvp after dwight, its his for the next 6-8 yrs.

    B**tard Dream Shake, he just kind of pivots his feet a little bit then heaves his body at the basket falling towards it with his arm outstretched. That shit isn’t getting past Ewing, Robinson, O’Neal. I guess he’s lucky his closest rivals are are a broken down Asian Corpse and a finesse Spainiard who can’t bang for his life.

    The way Dwight Howard is playing offense he’s the best player in the league!!!

    a dream shake?… more like a power nap pivot.

  • haslem

    dude scores 27 points and gets called a beast wtf for shaq that used to be an average, not spectacular game

  • marc

    Glad to see he is making improvements on his offense. That wasn’t the dream shake though. Looked like a forceful move in 2K.

  • marc

    @haslem so scoring 27 points is not something to proud of?

  • Haslem

    @marc he should be putting up 27 every night a ‘beast’ game for him should be 40+ not a figure he should be getting every night.
