NBA ROLE: ELITE REBOUNDER/ATHLETIC PIVOT

 

(Future Hall of Famer) Dwight Howard is “getting up there” in age but is a game-changer when healthy; doesn’t overwhelm as much w/ his back to the basket anymore but still sees 20-20 (every now and again) by killing it on the boards*, exploiting smaller matchups & finishing off oops & roll catches; don’t get it twisted, Dwight is still a double-double machine; sets up shop early in the offense, gets easy looks via dump offs & rolls; will to win has always been debated, though Dwight's childlike joy is often misconstrued; no longer a shutdown defender, though remains a pretty solid rim protector; sells fouls like no other – yells “AYYYYY” whenever attempting a shot in the paint; signed w/ Wiz (Summer '18) – Dwight’s looking to return to the postseason, recapture some glory? & solidify his place as one of the greatest big men in the last thirty years (no hyperbole)
