Even though Howard is a slightly better player than Bynum, he isn't quite big enough for "tower" status.
Howard has more consistentcy on both ends than Drew. Drew would beast on D, and then miss several easy layups in row. Added to that Howard has more experience passing out of double teams than Drew as well. Who knows, we may be seeing Shaq/Kobe Part 2
