McHale Wants Howard to Use Speed
McHale gets into his plans he wants to use Howards speed (which is exceptional for a big man) and improve his balance. McHale wants to play fast, something Howard pushed back against when Mike DAntoni came to Los Angeles.
Its not a question of can McHale teach Howard things that Patrick Ewing or Kobe Bryant or anyone else could not, its a question of if Howard will listen. To use the old Buddhist phrase: When the student is ready the teacher will arrive. Well see if Howard is ready.
