Dwight Howard has been disappointing in Laker Land to say the least.  Rather than stepping into the team's superstar role and taking just a little pressure off of Kobe's ever-aging body, Dwight has all too often faded into the background, and hindered the team with poor free throw shooting and decision making in crunch time. Kevin Ding, from the Orange County Register has a nice take on the Dwight situation in L.A. thus far, clink the link below for a jump to his piece.  Howard: Unwilling or unable.The season is still relatively young, but Dwight's legacy is being built, and up to this point, it doesn't read quite the way Laker fans would have liked.
