Stan Van Gundy: “Olajuwon Not Responsible For Dwight Howard’s Success”

Dwight Howard has been a tad bit better with his post moves this year.  He has increased his scoring to 21.4 points a game and while no one is going to confuse him with Kevin McHale, he is making progress.

Hakeem Olajuwon has been getting a lot of credit for that. because of the time he spent with Howard in the summer.

Stan Van Gundy has taken issue with that:

“This isn’t a knock on anybody, but Hakeem has gotten more credit for two hours than anyone I’ve ever seen,” Van Gundy said with very little prompting. “I mean, they were in a gym for two hours, three hours, and all of a sudden every shot Dwight makes is because of Hakeem.”

“There is not anybody alive who’s turning somebody’s game around in three hours,” Van Gundy said. “Dwight has done a lot of work, and I’m sure Hakeem gave him some advice, but that’s just starting to annoy me.

It doesn’t take a lot to annoy Van Gundy also took exception to Lebron James referring to the Heat as the “Heatles” basically saying that when the Heat are on the road they are like a rock band.

“They (Heat) are pretty impressed with themselves,” Van Gundy said. “But we don’t need Miami to get people to our arena.”

I agree with him about the Heat and to a lesser extent about Olajuwon, but it is really minor stuff in the grand scheme of things, but it doesn’t take much to Van Gundy blood boiling.

The new acquisitions that the Magic made seem to be starting to mesh, without playoff¬† “cooler” Vince Carter on the team, you might want to keep an eye on them as a legitimate threat in the East.
