His FT is awful though. I was watching the Bucks play the Magic in the 3rd quarter of a recent game, and with about 16 minutes left in the game, Milwaukee decided to start fouling intentionally. I don't know what's worse - the coach's total lack of faith in his defense, or the fact that Dwight is such a poor shooter that it could have worked to the Bucks advantage (it didn't).
I saw Mark Jackson employ that same thing when the Magic were in Oakland & the Magic still pulled it out, so i'm not sure it's such a good plan...
Does anyone know of a game where there was a hack a Dwight that actually worked & gave that team the W?
