Could this work at all?

What if the Lakers started Pau at center and Dwight at PF? Just a thought going through my head. Any chance that somehow that could work?

Dwight strikes me as an "F" at power forward. That was my first impression.

I think having Pau come off the bench to spell Howard is still the best solution.

Not that its going to make much of a difference this season.

It does not matter. Our coach it to dumb to play both 7 footers at a same time. He likes his small ball. Can he resign again. Best think that happens to ny Knicks is him resigning

Teams would sag off him and make it hard for Pau to work.

If the Lakers did try this, Dwight would think he has green light to launch 3 pointers all day. It would basically be a poor version of the current Howard/Gasol tandem. I still say Pau should come off the bench and play heavy minutes. (including all of the time Howard is on the bench)
