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