Josh Howard wanted to be an All-Star, he believed he deserved to be an All-Star. But, his performances since the All-Star break suggest nothing of an All-Star. Where is he?
In the seven games since the All-Star break, Howard has averaged 15 points, 6.3 rebounds and has not had more than two assists in any of the games. Worse, his shooting percentage is scrapping bottom. He's made 42 of 123 shots for 34.1 percent. From 3-point land, Howard's 5 of 23 for 21.7 percent.
Those are not All-Star numbers. Howard was the one most expected to mesh quickly with Jason Kidd and benefit the most. The Mavs need the old Josh Howard to step up.
