My feeling is L̶i̶n̶ Motiejunas needs another year, but team direction has shifted and shifted hard. It goes without saying — this is going to be a very important year for J̶e̶r̶e̶m̶y̶ ̶L̶i̶n̶ Donatas Motiejunas.
Pretty unfair what Kareem said about Dwight on how Laker fans shouldn't be disappointed on Dwight leaving just because he's not the player they wanted him to be...based on a season when came in hurt and obviously couldn't play like he used to when he was with the Magic. Kareem talks about how Dwight isn't good enough to help a team win, but he was the one who lead an average not-so-good Orlando team to the finals. Kareem also mentioned on Dwight being bad at shooting free throws saying, "If you have a high basketball IQ you'll know you need to work on that skill if you're going to win games." As if Howard is just ignoring his free throws and not working on it.... He does work on it and is trying to get better. Shaq won championships with the Lakers and he wasn't very good at shooting free throws. I guessed based on what Kareem said, you don't need a high basketball IQ to win it all... Seriously I was surprised he even made a comment like that. He acted like he still can't over the fact Dwight left the Lakers just like the rest of the Laker fans. Sure...Dwight should work on his free throws, but to put him like down like that is just borderline trolling when someone like Shaq has won rings in LA.
Yeah I like the Houston bigs like Hakeem more...He doesn't talk mess like this.
So I'm not going to mock the OP, if the OP is bilingual props for that. Learning new languages is difficult.
But what Kareem said...I used to like the man but he just goes way too far here. He basically called Dwight stupid. He chose his words VERY carefully when praising Dwight.
"He's a GREAT athlete." he said twice, but not a great basketball player. I think Kareem makes a valid point in there that Dwight doesn't have a go-to move.
Blah blah blah. He's right, Dwight is not a offensive monster but defensively he's a beast. He still can score in the paint (better than any center in the NBA) and if he returns to his Orlando form he's a top 5 player.
