    Hey Dwight! Who needs to take a 'Chill Pill' Again?

    Dwight Howard fouls out, is 3 for 14 from free throw line & the LA Lakers drop Season Opener to the Dallas Mavericks, without  Dirk Nowitzki! Dwight, you want go ahead and tell Laker Nation to take a 'Chill Pill' again?

    3 of 14 from the line. I read that this morning and had to say, "Ouch!" Andrew Bynum's free throw % dropped a bit last year, but normally he hits about 65% to 70%. The Lakers took a huge net loss in this category. Superman's aka Dwight Howard's FT% might be reminiscent of Hack-a-Shaq from the Laker days 10 years ago.

    I think I might have been wrong about the Lakers.  Nash and Kobe are old and can't guard a door, Dwight can't shoot free throws, Mike Brown is atrocious, and their bench is absolutely deplorable.  They may not even make it out the West.

      Mike Brown will be the X factor for this season. His ability to keep the egos under control, and substitutions will make or break the Lakers this year. But guys, hang on...let em gel before we go crazy.
