Video Highlights: Dwight Howard

There’s been a lot of chatter lately in response to a YouTube video showcasing Dwight Howard‘s workout with Hakeem Olajuwon in Houston during the off-season.

It’s been a revelation, of sorts, because it shows the start of Howard undertaking a transformation that a lot of people have noticed since the Orlando Magic reconvened for training camp a few weeks ago in preparation for the regular season.

Howard’s demeanor has changed, and he’s taking a very business-like approach to everything he does. No longer is Howard acting goofy and cracking jokes. Instead, Howard is taking things seriously. Good news for Magic fans, to be sure.

Oh, and those jumpshots? Howard is making ‘em.

I think you're assumption is correct.

It's funny what a little confidence can do for a player.

I'm ecstatic to see D12 use the bank shot. He made both of the shots he took. I was at the game on Sunday and during warm ups he was taking 3-pointers and made over half of them! I couldn't believe my eyes.

I like that Dwight's making those jump shots but on a lot of those possessions it looked like he was still giving up good position deep in the post where he could've gotten an easier jump hook. Though I suppose that could've been part of the plan with Gortat in the game next to him...
