How do you view Dwight?


When you think of Dwight what do you think of? I recently asked this to a few friends of mine, some Laker fans some not, and there responds were all very interesting to say the least.

All of the fans I asked varied in age/gender/fandom/general level of interest in the NBA, I tried to get a decent sample to see the general outlook of Dwight’s year with the Lakers.

“I feel like he is a great talent, but he isn’t a great competitor, he doesn’t have that fire that other great players have.”

“He’s just a punk that whines and will never be Shaq.”

“Any Laker fan would be plain stupid to not want him back in the purple and yellow, he does so much on defense that you need to compete at a championship level.”

“He is the best Center since Shaq, remember what Shaq did?”

“Dwight may not have the offensive game that Shaq did but he brings more on the Defensive side and the Lakers needed more on that side of the ball then anything.”

As you can tell there was plenty of Shaq comments and talks of Dwight’s amazing defense, I have my own views on the situation but I’d love to hear from my fellow Laker fans about what you think of Dwight, as a player and a person.
