Grading Dwight Howard's First Week as a Los Angeles Laker
Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

The first week of the 2012-13 season has ended with more questions than answers for the Los Angeles Lakers, and no one player epitomizes that notion more than the man in the middle, Dwight Howard.

Howard hasn’t looked like his old athletic self through five games. He's a step behind far too often, his struggles at the free-throw line are as apparent as ever, and for the first time in years he's being bullied down low by more physical opponents.

All that being said, the big man is posting solid numbers, and while he may not be running or jumping like we’re used to seeing, he’s certainly making his impact felt early on in his career with the Lakers.

Only the future can tell what’s in store for L.A. and its new center, and while Howard hasn’t been who we expected him to be, he’s still been the best center in the game through the first week of the season.
