Dwight is lost at the stripe but still setting great moving picks
I’ll soon be seeking employment with one or more NBA teams helping tall guys develop a jumper and improve at the stripe, and if I land a position it likely will entail surrendering my free-speech rights on basketball issues. Alas, that’s the NBA way, First Amendment be darned. So in the meantime I’m going to get some things off my chest.
One player I think I could help significantly is Dwight Howard, either on my own (my preference) or in conjunction with his personal shooting coach (Ed Palubinskas, assuming their off-season partnership has extended into the season) or Orlando Magic assistant coaches Mark Price and Patrick Ewing. My objective would be to help Howard develop — or rediscover — his very own shooting style, so he can be as spontaneous and instinctive with jumpers in the 10-to-15-foot range (much like one of his mentors, Hakeem Olajuwon) as he already is from in close with his lefty and righty jumphooks.
