    The German get benched for not being unable to stop the best 3 point shooter in history, with zero help from his center.

    Meanwhile, his Center, that doesn't help on the guards, doesn't get benched.

    "
    Schroder, who was the team's best offensive weapon, was subbed out of the game for failing to guard Curry. Schroder never returned. He ended the night with 23 points, including four 3-pointers, in 24 minutes of action.

    Curry said he didn't notice until later in the game that Schroder was being penalized for his actions."

    Dwight has fallen a long way and he is still in that process

    If the Hawks miss the playoffs and Harden wins a MVP trophy I'm curious if Howard will regret anything.

    Probably not, he's always a champion no matter what!

    Haven't you heard? Dwight has been that guy. He doesn't want to compete with Harden.:rolleyes:

    Glad he is someone else's problem now. The distraction always seems to be around him and why he isn't playing better.

    He really wanted to go play for his hometown. Atlanta learns just like we learned. He's not worth it because he can't pull his weight any longer. He may tease here and there with good games but that's it. He won't be there when you need him to step up regardless of what his stats say.

    That distraction certainly didn't stop him from reaching the Finals and WCF with hi as the centerpiece in both cases :rolleyes:

    Howard is now old and his game is nowhere it used to be, however he is hardly the worst player on the Hawks. In fact if they had better 3 pt shooters instead of trash like Bazemore on the team they would play a lot better. Its really sad reading about the posters here, you guys complain about the media play Westbrick gets and how Harden always gets shafted but then you also go and do the same to Dwight. Dude is hardly the problem against tge Wizards, Schroder shot 1-8 from the 3 and the Hawks as a whole shot 4-20. But no, the no 1 problem is Dwight lol

    Maybe you hate Dwight for 1 reason or another but pls base your complaints on what really happened rather than what you think should.

    I don't believe he wanted to play for the Hawks. They were the only team offering him over $20 million. If Horford weren't unrestricted, Dwight would be somewhere else earning less.

    I like Dwight personally, but I am so glad he's gone. I think it's fair to say now that adding Dwight Howard to your team legitimately makes you worse.

    28 & 15. Need 28 & 15. Should be BBQ chicken. 8 easy points just running the floor. Another easy 8 on dunks. A few in the post. James Harden & the Rockets guards need to get him the ball down low. Stop hogging the ball. 28 & 15.

    Dwight's unwillingness to adapt to today's game is why he stinks. Team ball is in...both on offense and defense. And teams that have not adapted to this situation arent gonna win. He truly is a cancer on the basketball court...He may have some decent games, but so can Javale mcgee...

    Perhaps he is fighting with the desire to want to play anymore. He enjoys the money wants to move up on the lists of rebounds/points to get into the hall of fame. But knows he is not as athletic and will never be as great as he and everyone once thought he would be. It is what is simply is.

    I'll never understand how this big dummy never bought into the pick and roll offense.

    Forget the pick and roll offense... Dwight cant consistently guard the pick and roll either.
