I really think Dwight is still hurt and his back is a little more serious than what the Lakers are letting on. Every time I watch the Lakers I notice he's not nearly as explosive in getting off the ground as quickly as he was in ORL.. He's gotten dunked on with the Lakers this year alone more than his past 4 seasons with the Magic combined. Prime example was the other night when Kenneth Faried tried to dunk on him and Dwight went for his face rather than jumping straight up like he "use to do" in ORL, when he was looking like a DPOY player. I remember over the summer they said he wouldn't be back until Jan..Then two weeks later he's back in training camp and playing in Oct.. clearly they brought him back too early, and he's in L.A the media and the scrutiny is x10 in that city compared to ORL.
This guy literally had back surgery, the same one that slowed David Robinson down, yet the Lakers made him play opening night and people are calling him a hoe, and he plays with the most ball dominating guard next to A.I the NBA has ever seen.
