Every little bit helps...
I was actually thinking about this a couple of days ago... dwight is a very hard worker... he made jameer sit on the bench with him and watch the lakers celebrate after they won the title (i know, i was in the building)... I can really see him shooting a couple hundred a day like he did during the playoffs all summer and come back a MUCH improved ft shooter (think when duncan went from like 60% to 70%) I think he shoots at least 65 with 68-70% upside... theres no challenge to FT's... a certain legendary HoF center was lazy and wouldnt practice them and thats why he never improved, but i think dwight is a torrid worker and he realizes that they win game 4 in the finals if he hits 1 FT and busts his ass to improve... i expect a nice jump... i guess we'll compare predictions in may
edit: by the way... josh howard in round 8? wasnt he a round 2-3 pick like 2 years ago? i expect a nice bounceback, maybe career year even... im thinking 18-20/5/2/1/1 with solid %'s and over a 3 a game... i dunno maybe its just me... i always thought he was overrated, but this year i think hes being forgotten... thoughts?
1st Preseason game. Howard goes 9-17 from the line. Dam you Dwight... dam you.
