Howard: Magic Didn't Properly Use Arenas

Dwight Howard had some praise Saturday for teammate Gilbert Arenas and was critical of the use the coaching staff made of him in Orlando.
“I don’t think our coach used him the right way, but I think he can do a lot of great things for our team,” Howard said. “He promised me this summer he was going to get better, physically and mentally, so he can come back and have an awesome year. I’m looking forward to that.
“I just felt like he didn’t get the opportunity to play his style but also play with me. I think he needed to. I think he got a couple of opportunities to do it in the playoffs, but it was kind of too late. So I think he will be great for us.”

Really think Arenas lack of caring anymore was the biggest reason he hasn't been that good there in Orlando, but maybe Dwight is a little bit correct.
If Arenas could even be 2/3 of what he was a few years ago, the Magic would definately be a top 4 team and pushing for that championship
