Something Is Up With Dwight...

Recommended Posts

I mentioned earlier in the season that I noticed Dwight kept ignoring Kemba when he grabbed a board instead of starting the break.  Often times he would dribble it up court while Kemba called for the outlet.  I sensed that there was some kind of alpha-beef Dwight was trying to initiate.

Then, more recently, I've just felt Dwight has checked out mentally.  Some games, it just seemed like he would get frustrated early and instead of fighting through it, he chose the easy way out and would try to foul out...  he was racking up 3 AVOIDABLE fouls in a qtr, but it looked like he was purposely seeking them out and then would almodt gloat once they were called...  like he was playing the heel in a wrestling match.

Now, tonight against the Bulls, I had the game on but wasnt paying super close attention...  until about the 2:30 mark in the 2nd qtr.  We had a lead and then lost it right before that mark.  Dwight grabbed a board, then Kemba turned and called for the ball, but instead, Dwight ignored him like he wasnt there and dribbled it up past halfcourt, when suddenly Clifford abruptly calls for a timeout.  Almost like he was doing it to spite Dwight.  They showed the bench and Clifford pulled his chair up and all the guys on the floor were sitting on the bench, as they were ready to hear Clifford's strategy for the remainder of the qtr.  When suddenly, demonstratively, Dwight gets up and walks off.  MKG, Kemba, and Clifford all looked at him surprised.  MKG continued to look in Dwight's direction throughout the rest of the timeout, almost like he was gesturing him to come back.  Clifford finished going over things with the players, then when the timeout is over, Dwight is left sitting on the bench and hasn't put his warmups on,  which suggests it wasnt planned.  Then they went to Stephanie Ready for an unrelated sideline report, and in the background, you could see Clifford and Dwight arguing...  Clifford went to walk off several times, and then when Dwight said something else, Clifford walked back again and went back at him.

Kemba has also seemed pissed lately in interviews...  reminds me a lot of his demeanor when Lance was pissing him off.

Just something to keep an eye on...

Howard is a very weird dude.  I figured his antics would eventually show up and here they are again.  He has been doing this for years now.. I would suggest you dont pay too much attention to his idiotic displays because it will drive u insane.  He is a fuggin weirdo.

He got irritated in the 1st half when nobody gave it to him on the block so he could throw up a half assed hookshot so instead the next time he touched the ball he shot a jumper from about 2 feet inside the 2 point line

 

He'll be traded before the all-star break

Can we trade Clifford and Frank with him?

We’re on a 5 or 6 game losing streak I’m sure everyone is frustrated / pissed.

Oh no, I'm well aware of his antics...  it's why I haven't been a fan of his until we traded for him.  I didnt even want us to pursue him as a FA last season when it was rumored that we were interested.   But, once we traded for him, I hoped for the best, and i figured he would want to change his past behaviors and habits considering his hometown team just traded him for nothing and his former teammates reportedly celebrated it because he was so disliked.  I just dont think his mind or his heart is in it anymore.

Selfish Dwight is back.

When he's not receiving post touches he checks out elsewhere as well. He doesn't rebound and he doesn't play defense.

The simple solution would be to give him post touches, but since his post game is so poor, we'd be damning ourself to NBA purgatory if we actually ran plays for him. He makes DeAndre Jordan look like Shaq.

There's not a doubt in my mind that he could have blocked Dunn's shot if he was engaged defensively and rotated on time; but he had already checked out, the guy is a mental midget. If he gets his way, he stays engaged but more than likely it's going to be to the detriment of the team. If he's asked to do what's best for the team then pouts like a child.

Yup, and look at Kemba's reaction...  he is tired of it.
