If Greg Smith can shoot FTs, why the hell can't Dwight? Greg Smith said he was working on his form a lot in the offseason. Dwight hired that coach and it looks like he may have actually got worse at it.
50% shooter is going to make 50% over the long haul. 1 point per possession isn't going to lose you games if you defend.
The problem is that Kobe sucks defensively this year, and "suck" doesn't even start to describe Duhon and Jamison.
Dwight can't defend everyone. Nor can any other big.
Maybe D'Antoni should consider putting Jordan Hill instead of Jamison when someone's doing hack-a-Dwight, for defensive purposes. Kind of obvious, but.... D'Antoni is doing an terrible job right now with his rotations.
The roster is flawed, Kobe looks like he's gunning for the scoring record right now. He should save some of that energy for defense.
