  • Shaq is a nice guy except when people try to challenge his ego. Dwight is humble now, back in his prime he was taking shots back at Shaq, and was trying to challenge shaq's legacy as the next great big. Didnt work out clearly but I understand Shaq and why he was the way he was.

  • Kobe made people hate dwight. That first laker stint. He still averaged 18 and 10 that year. Now he back. They about to win it. Different leaders bring outcomes

  • I don’t think Dwight was ever the problem that some tried to make him out to be. That last year in Orlando was a little weird with him and Stan, but what other concrete problems has he caused??? I think anyone would struggle to completely gel with Kobe, Harden, etc..and he actually performed well with ATL and CLT, it just wasn’t a perfect fit, I guess. Although I can’t even say that with CLT because Jordan is a TERRIBLE owner and GM. He’ll let anybody walk. How can you be the greatest PLAYER, yet literally be the worst owner? Sheesh

  • DWight just needed to know and accept his role before. He helped transform the ideal NBA big man into what it is today. He was great protecting the rim, rebounding, rolling to the lane, catching lobs and put back dunks. He does that and he's a monster

Why can't a 34 year old win comeback player of the year? Plus I'm a Celtics fan digging this dude's revival! Ball out brother! End your career as great as it started!
