Howard: Offense Should Gel by Midseason

The season hasn’t even started and Dwight Howard already has been waving the cautionary flag. The new Lakers center said fans need to be patient in the early going as the team’s chemistry comes together.
“I know everybody wants it right now, right now,” Howard said Sunday. “But we want to win in June, that’s what counts.”
Some of the anxiety stems from the Lakers’ 0-8 exhibition record combined with the high number of turnovers that have marked each game.
Another worrisome factor is that the starting five have played one exhibition game together; a foot injury to Kobe Bryantand Howard’s recovery from spinal surgery slowing the process.
“We don’t expect to win every game and be 82-0,” Howard said. “But we do expect, say by midseason, that everybody will have the offense down pat and we’ll be flowing.”
