Dwight Howard seems miscast with Lakers

If you think the Dwight Howard experiment is going well in Los Angeles, then you must have liked McLean Stevenson leaving “M*A*S*H” for “Hello Larry,” or “Saved By The Bell: The College Years,” because his Lakers tenure is turning into a nightmarish spinoff that has seemed doomed from the start.

Howard is making little impact defensively, he isn’t aggressive offensively, and there’s that little thing called free throw shooting, which has been a disaster. Howard in Los Angeles has been a poorer fit than that ridiculous headband he has decided to don, an example of his failed attempt to fit into the team’s culture.
