Howard also shoots much better than drummond and is much more of a threat than drummond.

Think cause you can't hack-a-shaq after 2 mins down... So he has to touch the ball for the foul to occur. But between 5-2 you can, and some coaches don't do it because they think it's dirty? I guess? Some who don't care about what what the fans think - like Popovich- and want to win, foul low ft% shooters like Dwight, Jordan, etc...

Sometimes it's not just in the 4th, it occurs through out the game when the opposing team is getting rhythm and momentum. And Dwight does time-to-time get taken out at those times(but usually it's just in the 4th). Also the ball wont touch him in the final minutes cause of the fear of being fouled.

And speaking about he wont shoot under 40 since it's historically low, deandre shot under 40% ft and it's his 5th year. It's possible... AD shoot what? 30% 2 years ago? then 37%? He might hit the 40 this year

Well,we are talking about teams fouling a bad shooter at the end of a game. And it's a rule that was created to address teams fouling a bad shooter at the end of a game.

not in his second season he wasn't
even now, he can't shoot at all, his progress has been abysmal in that respect
only his post game has gotten better, but it's far from elite, even good may be a stretch. Howard is a typical example of what a monster athelete center can do, even with limited skills. If howard had big Al's offensive skills he would run away with the mvp.

drummond is a major question mark of course, but to say he can't play in close games because he shoots 10% less than howard is crazy, that amounts to what, 0.8 points per game?

i haven't convince that this years's roster will much more competitive than last year given the factor that all other teams in eastern are much more improved(exclude Boston and Sixers)

our Front line is thin which only have 3 rotations(Amir,JV and TH)

our wing is un-efficient which will waste too much offence flow

our PG is a one-man show which none of the back-up can step up(both backup PG are one dimensional)

and our coach.............................

well, we could have drafted him instead of ross and he's on the same level with JV. However, I think after this season, the whole argument will disappear, as the two ADs will conclusively establish themselves as all star level players, if not outright all stars leaving JV (and Ross) far behind.

Ah I guess you and I interpreted that differently. I thought he was saying that our PG position is a one man show, meaning we only have one good pg on the roster.
