Shits on him while he was somewhat dominant with the Magic. Calls him "Superman" as a role player in LAL. That's why I find hard to believe Shaq when he said he regrets leaving the Magic.

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.

It was fast for Memphis because Triple J is going to be a better Defender than Dennis Rodman and plus they have to work on creating space a little bit for JA Morant and Triple J max deals in the future

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

Lakers will win it all this year. Everybody on their team is an Elite Defender. They have all the right pieces. Nobody gonna beat them in a 7 game Series.

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 are you guys surprised? LeBron has been making teammates better for almost 2 decades. The Lakers should get rid of Jared Dudley and bring in Melo. I bet LeBron can mane him average 18 in 15min off the bench.

Remember he was the number one pick out of high school over the kid from UConn who hasn't been in the league for years and if l remember correctly multiple defensive player of the year awards! 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!
