    As for Dwight Howard's strong relationship with Joe, remember that D12 has his own personal trainer.

    Exactly. This is all overblown. Never seen so much excitement over a S&C being hired.

    No doubt.

    What's ridiculous is some of the doubters jumping into a thread and onto a guy they knew NOTHING about.

    It's pretty easy to figure out if someone is full of it - within a few posts/days you can definitely get a good feel.

    It was obvious early on (definitely at the trade deadline LAST year) that Cyber had access to information that wasn't always public or access to some of it before it was made public.

    Good stuff, man.

    Yeah im wondering how much the gf had to do with this, maybe a lot more than dwight. I hope people on Twitter get it right, some are saying we hired his personal trainer.

    So, would that mean this strength guy is the one condition to Dwight coming here?


    See what I did there? I know. It was lame. Sorry. I quit.

    Definitely think it had more to do with the fiancee - but, can't hurt.

    Joe Ragowski is Howard's own personal trainer?

    This excitement isn't about the signing of a strength coach. It's about cyberx doing finger exercises on the board preparing for his big scoop to come next week.

    Not odd at all. Younger guys are less disciplined, party more, and listen less. These coaches cant babysit them 24/7. You cant really expect many guys on a team to play 82 full games, at any age.

    So, if we don't land Dwight, are we gonna fire Rogowski and hire the former S&C coach from the Miami Heat, the Minnesota Timberwolves or the Portland Trailblazers or whoever our next target is?
