Tim Duncans mentor = David "the Admiral" Robinson.
Both classy,intelligent, honorable family men.
Dwight isn't lucky enough to have their work ethic, family ethics and unfortunately a high schooler that was taken advantage by the agent and the league as many others continue to be exploited. Being tremendously wealthy does not make the man.
There is more to being a Champion & Leader than being rich.
Some have it, most dont.

And you dont think Dwight has it? Are you kidding? He comes from a very good family. Maybe your tag name should be LMOA for loony man on acid.

The way the Spurs got Duncan was a lucky misfortune. David Robinson suffered a season ending injury that sent the Spurs into the worst record that year and the 1st pick of the draft. Robinson was the person that convinced Duncan to stay in San Antonio and not take the offer to come here to Orlando.
Howard can appreciate Duncan's game but he only can be Howard. Howard could had been playing in some contender team in this NCAA tournament if he did not decided to go pro. The whole media could be suggesting the notion of Howard, Beasley and Love could be the gems of this year's draft. We are very happy today the Magic selected Howard instead of Okafor. Let Howard play his game.

Dwight could use some work on his in game work ethic. numerous times while watching magic games i see him slacking off especially in trasition. opposing centers too regularly beat him back on defense. thus causing numerous defensive problems for the magic. as a big with unmatched atheletic ability he should the be first big back on D and the first big trailing the fastbreak. but typically he gets a rebound and just kinda jogs back. if he got back quicker on offense he would find it easier to attain good low post position.

As a long time Spurs fan, I see great potential in the already powerful Howard. Duncan would be good to emulate as would Bill Russell or Walt Chamberlin, but more importantly than that: I think that the organization needs to surround him with the talent that Duncan has been fortunate to play with. Howard can take role players and make them key players with his game, and that aspect needs to be cultivated. He has a bright, bright future.
And as for the first poster, please don't contribute him to Spurs nation.
