That is really no surprise. I'm a big Dwight fan, but I'm not going to sit here and tell you he has anything in common with "the dream" offensively. He never had the skill and frankly body like your namesake. While I find Shaq more skilled than some...lets face it...he lowered that shoulder and bowled his way to a more than a couple of those thousand points. IF they actually called the rules as they were written..Shaq would have fouled out almost half his career...or had to completely change his game.
I have high respect for the defense and rebounding. The man may not "get it" offensively, but he has keen as a BBIQ when it comes to defense as anyone else before him. Watch Deandre Jordan (3rd in dpoy and 1st in rebounds) when he's healthy and watch Dwight Howard and tell me Howard isn't on a completely different tier. The man knows what he is doing on the defensive end...and he does it damn well when his body is up to the challenge.
