The thing I can't stand the most is an NBA player that doesn't have a reliable jumper or a streaky shooter. How he is a consensus Top 5 player to me is mind boggling same goes with CP3

You ISH guys can have guys who can't shoot like Derrick Rose, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Dwayne Wade

I rather have players like O.J. Mayo, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, Gilbert Arenas

I usually stay away from NBA player threads and the hatorade stuff, but reading this thread just wants to make me scream out loud.

ISHs top 5 NBA Players Consensus-Wise

1. LeBron James
2. Kobe Bryant
3. Dwyane Wade
4. Dwight Howard
5. Chris Paul

The real top 5
1. Kobe Bryant
2. LeBron James
3. Carmelo Anthony
4. Dwyane Wade
5. O.J. Mayo

When I went to a a Vince Carter celeb all star game a while back, I remeber sitting down and watching a guy rain down three's like crazy. Who was this gentleman? Stromile Swift practicing and game time are two very different things.

It's been 4 years since Dwight started expanding his game. Surely he's an offensive monster by now!

Am I right?

...Guys?

Nothing wrong with being third tier, its just laughable to hear him mentioned in same breath with the greats.

Current centers who are better than Dwight Howard:

Tim Duncan
Pau Gasol
Roy Hibbert
Al Horford
Joachim Noah
Marc Gasol
Dem. Cousins
Brook Lopez

Not one of those players are better than Howard.

Was he massively overrated in 2011 when he made a team of Jameer Nelson, Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu and Ryan Anderson a top 3-5 defensive team while averaging 23/14 on 59%?

Funny thing is this is based off of a down year for Dwight(and still incorrect) but anyway, Pau Gasol had a worse year than Dwight last year. And Cousins?
