03:56 PM ET 08.19 | Late last week, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey suggested that his coaching staff will work with Dwight Howard in attempts to play him at power forward. If it was something they found success with, they'd implement it into the regular season, though, there was never any word from Dwight as to his interest in doing so. Apparently, he doesn't mind at all. In fact, he encourages it.

Who cares just put the big man on the block most of the time and run a few pick and rolls with him and harden and you'll have a successful offense

Say what you will about Mike, but he didn't play DH out of position at PF.

WHat diff does it make if you cannot make half your FTs, if you played PF or PG? If you can't make FTs, you're bringing your team down.

Lots of money handed out to Howard to play PF.... and he doesnt have a jump shot to play it

Who cares what his "position" is? Just get him on the court and let him hoop. It is basketball and you play your best five and he is definitely in that group.

I for one don't give a crap where he plays.
