The Los Angeles Lakers big man Dwight Howard, who returned to LA after six years, shared thoughts on his current role with the team and what he likes about it:
“I enjoy coming off the bench. I get the opportunity to see the schemes that the other team is doing (and) where I’m needed on the floor, whether that be up on the pick and rolls, if I need my energy to be up, if I need to come in the game and get a couple blocks. I’m reading the defense, I’m reading the offense and I’m just seeing where I can be of service to my teammates.
It’s a very different role for me but I really do enjoy it … I just want to be the person who can see everything on the court before I even get on,” Howard said, per Silver Screen and Roll.
This season, Howard is averaging 6.8 points, 7.2 boards, 1.4 blocks, and 0.8 assists per game, while shooting at 75.4% from the floor.
